Show builds up to Chill­out Ses­sions

Lesotho Times - - Weekender - Mo­halenyane Phakela

PREPA­RA­TIONS for the sec­ond an­nual Chill­out Ses­sions in De­cem­ber have gath­ered mo­men­tum with the first build up show to be staged next week­end in Ha Thet­sane in Maseru.

The event is the brain­child of South African based DJ Ed­win ( pic­tured) aimed at pro­mot­ing lo­cal tal­ent by af­ford­ing young per­form­ers a plat­form as well as treat­ing pa­trons to an out­door event.

The event will be staged at DJ Ed­win’s K-ash Car Wash in Ha Thet­sane.

Dubbed the Road to #2ndan­nu­alchill­out­ses­sions, the pro­mo­tional show is the first of many to fol­low which will give rev­el­ers a taste of what to ex­pect at the of­fi­cial show pen­ciled for 18 De­cem­ber.

South African DJ Sech from Drumkid On­line Pod­cast will per­form at next week’s event along­side lo­cal acts such as L-tore, KVN, 3rd Code, Hunky D and Ed­win.

There will be a photo shoot by pho­tog­ra­pher and graphic de­signer, Speechde­signs, which will be used to pro­mote the event on dif­fer­ent on­line plat­forms.

“Next week’s event had been in­tended as a pho­to­shoot to pro­mote the ac­tual show in De­cem­ber but af­ter real­is­ing how im­pa­tient some had be­come, we de­cided to have a show as a high­light of what to ex­pect in De­cem­ber,” DJ Ed­win told the Week­ender this week.

“The Chill­out Ses­sions is one of many events I am stag­ing to cre­ate a so­cial plat­form for peo­ple to get to­gether to so­cialise, lis­ten to good mu­sic and en­joy the ac­tiv­i­ties that ex­tend to board games in­clud­ing chess, darts and Xbox among oth­ers.”

He said the over­whelm­ing re­sponse to last year’s event had prompted him to im­prove this year’s event to in­clude more ac­tiv­i­ties as well as bring­ing in­ter­na­tional acts whose iden­ti­ties would be re­vealed at a later date.

He said he would keep im­prov­ing the show with the ul­ti­mate goal be­ing to stage it at a much big­ger open area as a beach con­cept.

DJ Ed­win has also hosted The Han­gout dur­ing the Easter hol­i­days as well as the an­nual New Year’s Eve Party.
