With the exciting news of Clinton Dodgen being up in Johannesburg, we couldn’t resist getting him back in the Sound Sensible Radio studio’s, this time as his solo act dodge.

In the interview he explains the new direction he’s taking, and the exciting news of possible up coming releases.

The quirky, intricate twists and turns the mix takes, backs up his explanation from the interview perfectly and shows exactly why we love having this quality artist in studio with us.

Respect to dodge for the love and passion he has for what he does. You are welcome back any time.

Michael Lesar

Michael Lesar is the guy responsible for those one of a kind Let’s Swing It parties everyone has been talking about of late, and ahead of it’s next instalment in Pretoria he found some time to drop by our studio and share his story with us.

Growing up in Cape Town, it didn’t take him long to find his calling and by the age of 13 was already mixing on old tape decks and teaching himself the art of mixing on anything he could get his hands on. A few years later and with a little more experience he was inspired to throw his first party, aptly named Deep Heat. The event exploded and continued for 10 years in warehouses across Cape Town and is what opened all the doors into the industry for Michael.

Michael is known for a wide variety of music, evident in the SSR44 podcast. With a mix like no other we have had on the show before, you can expect a mix full of electro swing music that we bet will have you, your folks and their folks grooving to it’s happy beat.

Thank you to Michael and his very interesting friend Fred Spider for joining us in studio, it is always such a pleasure to have such knowledgeable yet humble guests on the show.

Mr Mon

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.

Bas Amro
May 2014 22

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.
