Mr. Mon takes to the decks for SSR43 with a selection of deep and dubby bass music he later coins as his ghetto side. Although making his name by playing a variation of other genres, this is where he claims his heart lies. Not too surprising when considering he hails from the deepest south of Johannesburg.
Mr. Mon’s productions have a hip hop orientated sound to them and although not being signed to any label as of yet are interesting none the less and worth a listen, available on Soundcloud. Backed by the love for his art, long standing clothing sponsorship with the Supreme Being and of course his naturally ghetto character, we have no doubt his tracks will one day see the success they deserve.
Thanks to Mr. Mon for taking his time to come into studio and show our listeners something a touch different to the norm.
Our next guest hails from a small town on the east side of Holland, but has been residing just down the road from Sound Sensible Radio studio’s in Newtown for almost 4 months now.
Bas Amro has been committed to his musical career from the tender age of 11, releasing his first track back in 2008 and since releasing on a number of labels across the globe including his favourite Freerange Records. He describes the sound of his own production as versatile and unique and the mix he drops for us in studio follows suit.
Expect a deep dubbed out tech mix in which Bas gets to share the music he really loves but rarely gets to play.
We later find out in the interview exactly why the move to Johannesburg took place, how much he enjoys the city the exciting work he has been doing.
Thank you to Bas for joining us in studio and we look forward to seeing him back in S.A soon.

Ivan Turanjanin, a man whose life long passion has been constantly evolving and tweaked to perfection all the while keeping the singular headstrong vision of his roots – a quality and historically driven obsession with techno.
The carefully selected and pieced together musical journey he takes us on is ripe with gnarly techno gems, all while keeping the flow smooth and tangible.
Behind the mic, in an interesting and fun interview Ivan touches on his early days in Johannesburg, moving to Cape Town, his prototype parties and latter on the birth of Killer Robot. The numerous brands he is associated with all culminating to his latest adventure, Cape Town Electronic Music festival and the bright future it holds.
Sound Sensible Radio would like to thank one of our hero’s and friend for taking the time out to join us in studio.
INXEC needs no introduction to the dance music world, having racked up releases on major labels such as Contexterrior, Crosstown Rebels, Culprit and many more. Sound Sensible Radio was lucky enough to catch up with him while he was in South Africa on tour.
The quirky yet groove infused mix he brings to studio is testament to exactly why people all over the world want to here his music.
Behind the mic he explains the advantages of living in Nottingham at a panicle time of the Sasha era and how the right contacts and connections with some leading players in the industry lead him on the right path.
We would like to thank Inxec for taking time out to join us in studio and look forward to meeting him again on our musical adventures.
A long time friend of Sound Sensible joins us for this weeks episode of Sound Sensible Radio. Having followed each other for a number of years, Sound Sensible knew that quality was guaranteed when inviting this minimal purist into studio.
Hydro is one of the few Dj’s who is able to stay pure to the minimal sound, all the while keeping listeners intrigued with the perfect blend of psychedelic hypnotic twists. SSR-39 is a perfect reflection of this.
The passion Hydro projects in the conversation we have, is true testament of the hard work and love he has for music and what he does. From recording a clank on a pan to live instrument in obscure places for his up coming album the effort and love is all the same.
We look forward to the album later this year and so should you.
