Relaunching ‘Sole Essential Recorded’ Podcast & Here’s What You Need To Know
As may have seen already, we used once had a monthly podcast series known as ‘Sole Essential Recorded’, however, the podcast, much everything else, was put on the shelves for a couple of months because I wasn’t feeling well for a minute and had to fully focus on my recovery from depression.
Anyway, it’s coming back now, and I couldn’t be more excited but what is the ‘Sole Essential Recorded’ Podcast exactly?
In a nutshell: Sole Essential Recorded is dance music oriented audio presentation that has been developed to showcase the hottest vocal house, deep house and afro-centric dance records.
Focused squarely on the African continent, the programme intends to bridge the gap between the mainstream and underground circuit.
That being said, Recorded has conveniently been divided into three main segments – namely: (1) New Selections, (2) African Hotlist, and (3) Made in Africa. You can find a very detailed breakdown of all three segments further down below:
‘New Selections’ is a presentation of songs that have either been released recently or not been released officially and/or playlisted anywhere else. Now, while we may occasionally showcase new songs that have been written and/or produced by some very well-known South African music figures, our main objective is to introduce you (the listening public) to a handful of up-and-coming (young) South African music producers and recording artists.
Following the ‘New Selections’ segment is the ‘African Hotlist’ in which you’ll find a great selection of songs that have been making waves in the mainstream and underground circuit on the African continent.
Made in Africa
The last segment, ‘Made in Africa’ is dedicated to showcasing, supporting, and celebrating Africa-based Music Producers, DJs & Recording Artists. Our aim is to shine the spotlight on the aforementioned professionals as well as the incredible work they do. Do stay tuned for more updates about this monthly podcast and everything in between.
