Sorry…Sorry….Sorry!!!! A thousand apologies for not writing on my blog. It’s really bad isn’t it? I have neglected you my lovely blog family in ‘My World’ for the new and developing world of ‘Luv Asia Radio’. I swear I am not he kind of person that leaves the old for the new. I so am not. I’m actually too overly loyal till death do us part…but ok I admit I got sidetracked. But me back!!!
Today I would like to inform you that I now have a rocking total of 2,130 unique Luv Asia Radio listeners who have listened to my shows a total of 3,608 times as we speak. Still might not sound a lot to you still, but as a one wo’man’ band and not even 2 months old I think thats’s marvelous, just marvelous I say!
Now I have a new studio installed with a new Apple Mac Pro with a brand new stereo sound mic….I am telling you it sounds shit hot!!! Not me silly…the sound!
Anyway things can only get better from here and they so already are. Donations are doing brillianty, and have exceeded the £500 mark. I will be presenting a list to you of ‘Luv Asia Radio Angel Donators’ very soon. But here’s the news that I have been bursting to tell you about….
Ladies and Gentleman, Boys and Girls and My Hot Sweet Sticky Jalebis, Luv Asia Radio and me Missy D would like to announce their very first Guest DJ and Show on Luv Asia Radio!!!! Please make some noise and a stamp your feet to welcome the one and the only Sharnita from the Shaanti Collective! Yes you heard and read that right.
Now the Shaanti Collective are a group of like minded individuals who explore underground dance and electronic music from the past, present and even include futurist beats from around the globe. These people are awesome, they really play and explore anything from around the globe, and their forte is electronic and alternative music.
Shaanti started back in 1999 and have in my eyes been leaders in paving the way for creative electronic beats and music not just in the UK but globally. They have been prominent at festivals such as The Big Chill, Radio 1 Live in Birmingham and Nottingham and the Eastern Electronic Festival. Shaanti for me is freedom of expression and an individual entity in its on right. I cannot say that I have ever been involved with Shaanti or been to many of their gigs or festivals, but do know a few people involved. Manga being one, who is the coolest dude ever and through him have on and off talked to Sharnita who I used to deal with on the press side of things a few years ago.
Sharnita is also the curator of the Eastern Electronic Festival and recently I heard some of her beats and was blown away. I mean I was seriously like WOW! So I plucked up the courage to ask her if she would do a guest or even regular slot on Luv Asia radio, and I was shocked at her response!! She said she “would be honoured”, which blew me away even more! Can I just say at this point that Shaanti are extremely selective about who they work with, so you can imagine what this means to me. I’m blown away.
So now I will be presenting to you SHARNITA from SHAANTI on LUV ASIA RADIO every 3rd Thursday of every month! She will bring her unique set of global, electronic, eastern and very unique and different beats to YOU. Please join her at 7PM GMT on Thursday 19th January for a full hour of Shaanti-ness and then every month thereafter (a day before MY Birthday – ahem). I am trying to get her to do a weekly but at the moment even this is great! By the way she mixes it, produces it, masteres it, engineers it all herself which really does tickle my pickle!!!
Another achievement in the very small life of Luv Asia Radio……
Sharnita Bring it on!!!!!
