DJ Wesley – Mobile Blast Vol 3 (GetMziki Exclusive ****)

Many people who don’t know me and read my blogs or any of my interesting takes on life or criticism on different things will probably tell you that I am a hater. I am a firm believer of kill the hype and lets call a spade a spade and not a big spoon. So often I never give people or products the credit they deserve because I am always looking for the flaws before I start looking for the positive uplifting aspects. I think one of the biggest saddest things you can have around you as an aspiring entertainer or entrepreneur, is a guy who tells you – “your the shit homie, your hot, your all that” when deep down he knows you are just mediocre.

Personally I have many people who tell me am half stepping, am mediocre and that I can do better. I have a group of people who tell me to change GetMziki – the interface is too old now, the download links don’t work, the images are whack!! LOL. I love those guys coz they make me want to do better each day i wake up. LOL. I think 30,000 users later I am still trying to do better and to serve this massive flow of music enthusiasts.

So when I pick a DJ and say I think this DJ is hot – please believe me that comes with all the salt water and omena from Kisumu to accept that some cat is just tight. Truthfully I’ve worked and hang out with some of the greatest in the game in East Africa. In the US being called a good DJ is relative because there are guys in their basements or in their apartments with decks just juggling and playing with Serato for fun. When I was 16yrs old I used to frequent some parties thrown by a guy called Nguyo and the Osogos deep down in a place called Taurus. DJ Pinye had a buddy of his called DJ Omar. DJ Omar who was from DC at the time was just BAD NEWS!!! this dude was juggling back in like 94/95 – these guys essentially really just brought hiphop to Kenya in a big way. (which is one of the few reasons I salute Pinye today, however the last time Pinye played Lords of the Underground, Steve Nice or Diamond D sijui… tsk tsk tsk)

Anyway I digress – DJ Wesley’s mixtapes restore my faith in creativity and in the ability to create something exciting and bold. I think right now I would put him as one of the BEST or probably the best DJs Kenya has to offer. It doesnt even really matter that majority of his stuff is software based – to me its the execution of the mixes and the blends he puts together. The guy is just a small genius. I am also particularly fond of their new online journey in the form of www.jamhuricity.com which is a well branded, well demarcated website. I am feeling the whole Jamhuri Entertainment, J.com and the entire merchandising piece they are putting together. I see great things coming off these ventures and I am keen and watching. But for now Wesley just keep making these mixtapes they are on fire….

DJ Week – DJ Wesley : Dallas Promo Mixtape

DJ Wesley is slated to be in the US at some point this year starting his tour in Dallas – the details are still vague at this point as plans are still being made, but from the mixes being submitted each week between Wesley and his team in Dallas its safe to say Memorial Weekend might be an interesting event this year.

Wesley currently holds down Homeboyz Radio – and if you pay close attention to his sets you will realize the kid is bad news – I once told my boy DJ Mista Prime to watch out for DJ Wesley or DJ Creme – Prime took my latter advice and signed up with DJ Creme de la Creme the “top Chef” who I hear kills it on the Decks in Kenya.

Needless to say this new breed of young gunnas is something to watch closely because they are changing the game slowly. I just wish they would dare to step out of the Genge realm for a day or two. This mix is interesting because its not really about Genge or Kapuka… Wesley put a little bit of everything in it.

DJ Wesley – Mambo Makubwa Tour Sets

I’ve had an old DJ Wesley mixtape on my ipod for over two years, I normally put it on heavy rotation because it was done at a point and time I had lost faith in DJ’s. That particular mixtape is somewhere on this site, he produced it when he was at Homeboyz. However it seems some future coalition with Breakpoint DJs is in the horizon so he has been submitting some new sets which somehow have landed on my laps.

It’s been a while since I was managing DJs or talent but often I will listen to music and tell if a DJ has potential or not. The challenge however with most Kenyan DJs is that they all play the same DAMN thing so as much as you may want to criticize one DJ over another – really the discrepancy scale is so thin because they all compete playing the same songs, same genre and same style. The only person I continuously commend is DJ Edu – because to me Edu is one person who looks outside his comfort zone and starts experimenting with new music and through this process Edu has broken so many songs and so many artists its no wonder he is the Number One African DJ.

I dont know Wesley personally but I do know he is one of the upcoming Kenyan DJs whom I think if remains consistent and relevant, will do big things one of these find days. Either way enjoy some of his more latest work – which in my personal opinion is where I would expect any relevant DJ to be at – Skill wise and musically.
