•••Fresh Box with Bright Breeze•••
Q. Welcome to Tsa_Pitori Online Magazine. Great to be chatting with you, how are you?
A. I’m well thanks.
Q. First and foremost let’s start from humble beginnings, where are you from?
A. I was born in Limpopo and later moved to Soshanguve where I spent most of my upbringing.
Q. What keeps you grounded?
A. Music, life and most of all passion which is my drive.
Q. What inspired you to take up music as a full time career?
A. Growing up as a bright-eyed youth I have always had a knack for music, stemming from my brother getting me my first turntables at a tender age of 12, from teaching myself how to use them my curiosity for the arts grew and because my support structure is and has always been water tight it guided me into taking that career decision. Playing various musical instruments has now also been another addition to my musical pallet and skills in music making.
Q. Kindly elaborate more on the Nothing Better track by Kaylow, how did the collaboration come about?
A. I composed the beat and then sent it to Kaylow which got a positive response thus far, to my surprise he told me that he was recording his debut studio album with House Africa/Sony and that he has chosen it to be the first single and like they say “..the rest is history”
Q. So what can we expect from Bright Breeze this year, is it going to be just singles or there’s an album in the pipeline?
A. I am completing my debut EP and single which should be hitting your airwaves and TV soon, called “Bright Breeze feat Calendar Songs – Waiting for something” featuring an alluring song bird from the UK. I am also working on Mulo Blaqe’s debut album titled Anticipation and various other singles for artists in and out the country. As for album, I plan to release a full length album soon, with all original. For more updates follow and like Bright Breeze SA(Facebook) for more info in that development.
Q. What’s bright breeze signature sound?
A. I like to call my sound nostalgic fusion, something that has vibe yet draws you in emotionally and make you feel good in the process… “mara heh monna otla jaiva”(it’s capable of making people dance) *lol*
Q. How do you balance the two producing as well as DJ-ing?
A. It’s that easy! I always make time to nurture and develop both those talents. *smiles*
Q. To those that look up to you and want to follow suit in regards to your choice of career what can you say to them?
A. You need to discover your own unique, possibly unconventional technique for DJ-ing and producing music. Having a distinguishing image and stage presentation are as important as playing your music well.
It’s also easier to get caught up in the hype of success and becoming a big star so I say focus on the bigger picture (your career) as a DJ/producer and musician alike and not just the next 20 min of the spotlight. Music requires work, practice, discipline and commitment.
Q. If you weren’t a music producer/DJ which career choice would you have persuaded?
A. I would be a graduate in Business and Entrepreneurship.
Q. Where can people book bright breeze and maybe for social networking, bo twitter or facebook wise?
A. For bookings call:
