The first series of The Local Drive will take place at Jojos to inject more local music in clubs and other establishments as DJ’s have the upper hand and the power to create a culture of playing more Namibian music in local establishments.
The Drive will jumpstart as from 17:00 till late with an all-female DJ line up, another way of celebrating Women’s month. According to DJ Alba, the other half of Afroberries they’re also trying to get upcoming DJ’s on the initiative to blend things together and make the night a memorable one.
The Drive is open to any artist, upcoming or established to submit their music to be played this coming Saturday. One can submit their music to DJ’s Alba, Maggz or Roxy in a DJ pack. The pack should consist of a file with a certain song of an artist which includes the acapella, the beats and the full song. Having the required file will make it easier for the DJ to blend the song of an artist into another. The Drive will help build traction and teach people how to appreciate local music more as said by DJ Alba.
“Namibian music indeed improved over the years and DJ’s should learn and make it a habit of playing more local songs in various establishments be it bars or clubs,” says DJ Alba Nalo.
