Serato failures and monsoon rains couldn't block what was meant to be...Your boy put on an African 12" & 45RPM records clinic at @queensheadjkt at #JumpNFunk Friday night.
One day, some young DJ is gonna say thank you for telling him to always have enough wax on the job to perform should his technology shit the bed...I'll be waiting patiently to meet them... According to my hosts and the venue owner, Friday night was the first time they'd ever experienced a DJ from abroad playing over 3 hours worth of 45s in their tenure, let alone the depth and range of Pan African joints played that night. I'm beyond honored to own that declaration in their eyes...the venue was to close at 2:30am...we rocked until well past 3:30...🙏🏽 There's nothing like striking first as a disc jockey. There's nothing like looking across a full room in a market you're new to and seeing a small ocean of people enjoying records they may have never heard before, let alone heard in a club.
Here's to those of us with the balls to find our own lane and step on the gas, whatever the discipline you practice.
I was scaring people out of the club with Fela Kuti records in 1993... Today, Fela is equivalent to "The Most Interesting Man In The World" that we see in the Dos Equis Beer commercials... I'm proud of my space in making that a stone cold fact, and Friday night I got my chance to prove it on my first ever visit to Jakarta, Indonesia. "Who no know go know" © Fela Anikulapo Kuti
