I got a tweet from my friend Regardt on Friday asking if I had a copy of my 004 Sound Republic Podcast. So over the weekend I started going through some of the old hard drives. It took a while, but I did come across some interesting things.
I found some pictures of my daughter sitting on my lap in the Monte Casino Jacaranda Studio while I was on air. That was a special moment from back in 2007.
I was concerned that the two older hard drives I have, might be corrupted, but they worked fine and I spent a while going through these memories. While I was digging through the folders I can across some live mixes I recorded, what a great find! My set live from H2O, October 2004 and three sets record at Evolution in Pretoria also from 2004.
I had a great little set up, I used to take to clubs and events back in the day. I had a small mixer, mp3 recorder and a microphone for the crowd ambience. These will be shared with you this Thursday from 12pm (South African Time) on DataBass. Be warned, the Evolution sets are really banging, 140+ BPM.
Good news, I found the older podcasts and Tweeted a download link to Regardt. Only 78 to 126 are still available online at the moment and I thought the older ones were gone forever.
