ENDJOY PODCAST – 007 – Cheval

For this new episode, we have a selection of tunes which defies genres’ boundaries with a guest mix from Shakti a.k.a Cheval. But first, let’s hear what he’s got to say.

Give us a presentation of yourself

Hello peeps, im Shakti aka Cheval. I am currently in 2 dj collectives; Electrocaine & Ill Mo’ and currently spreading the sound on fridays in Barabar. I started playing publicly in 2007 but before that got initiated by my good mate Avneesh on a pair of technics turntables. I also hold the role of curator and publicist for the electrocaine collective and together with this Ill Mo & Electrocaine partnership have been organising numerous events locally which some of you might have attended.

I do not want to be very long here but here is a link to my facebook page where you could find more info and follow if you like: www.facebook.com/chevalmusic

Talk a bit about this set

This set was made at home while some friends were here having a cup of tea. It really is a listening mix with some of the tunes I like at the moment and has a lot of ups and downs.

How you define the style of music you play and what makes you love it?

Eclectic, sometimes here in Mauritius I call it ‘variétés’ for people to understand it. I really love all kinds of music and think that a lot of it should be heard by everyone thats why I do not restrict myself to one style.

What could be your advice for upcoming djs?

Listen to loads of music, persevere in whatever you are doing and you will succeed.

Your favourite tune at the moment?

Hmm a bit hard to say got loads of favorite tunes but I’ll pop one for Africa:
Fela Kuti – Zombie
