With all the hysteria about  global currencies volatility and the trade war with China and the USA, the global markets in the world are going through a bit of a frenzy due to news of another global recession. This is particular to the financial markets with accusations flying around about currencies being either overvalued or undervalued, depending on what each individual country’s (or region in terms of the European Union) agenda is in the global trade arena. With many businesses now plying their trade in the modern global game as either importers or exporters, the situation could adversely affect businesses depending on which on end of the foreign exchange rates is conducive to the particular success of the business. With all that is going on in the global economy, a good question would be how does this affect the music industry?

In the short term, when there’s a global recession or depression, it can usually be a very good thing for music entertainers! Usually when uncertainty looms the tendency “to distract and divert attention” is deployed by governments or businesses, whenever there’s a looming down turn in business or productivity. For example – when companies know that business activity closer to the end of the year will wind down, they then decide that this is the ideal time to have their office parties which involve bringing, food, liquor and entertainment (music). Much as office parties are a genuine gesture of employees thanking their employees, they can also be seen as an anomaly due to the employer “surrendering” to the forces of the market environment. When the festive season hits with all it’s “festivities”, it’s usually a good time of the year for artists as that is when they are at their busiest in terms of bookings. However, musicians can be busy at other times apart from the festive season. For example, when politicians around the world want to campaign elections – a lot of the time they would turn to musicians for endorsements.

Mixing it up with our very own “SABC” DJ Ceddy

Lavatory Records

Our guest this week is locally based DJ Ceddy, who has been on the scene for a while as a journeyman who is an IT professional during the day and dons his DJing headphones during his free time. The entertainer DJ Ceddy (not to take a swipe at the comedian Cedric the Entertainer) is a colourful individual who caters for diverse crowds who enjoyed music in general. A contrast of the man’s personalities is thus created pretty much like Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

We were able to have a great sit down with our Asian brother and asked about him his experiences thus far. He opened up to us about his style and sound, the other meaning of the abbreviation SABC, the shocking sudden departure of Avicii and many other things. He is quite the character despite his mild-mannered appearance.

An enlightened ImproPoe is now “better than he was” in 2018

Lavatory Records

 

Who can forget rapper ImproPoe’s bold declaration on who the best emcee was? Of course, his answer was HIMSELF! He made this statement three years ago following the release of his mixtape Body of Proof,which ultimately earned him some rather impressive levels of acclaim. On this project, the rapper who is part of Revivolution had embarked on proving a point to announce his arrival.

Since then the man with more aliases than the entire Wu Tang Clan, ironically went off on a mystical journey to the Far East and landed up in China where he currently resides. By adopting the industriousness of his new host country, he then worked on another solo project which was released a few weeks ago titled Certain Dillusions. The curiosity will always come about when one impresses on debut, as questions arise like what can hip hop fans from him expect now? It can also be rather difficult to try and beat a previous body of work with minimal flaws.

We are excited that ImproPoe aka Shaun Collins aka The White Shadow aka James Caviar, has finally dropped his sophomore project and would not miss the opportunity to catch up with him.
