YOU HAVE to pace your­self…

This is the one piece of ad­vice DJ Fresh has for any­one who plans to spend their first De­cem­ber week­end with him and Eu­phonik on the party cruise, OH SHIP!

“This is the fifth one for me and I think the Satur­day night py­jama party, where peo­ple are in their PJs on the streets un­til the morn­ing, and the party goes on un­til around 9am on the Sunday,” said the Metro FM morn­ing show host about his favourite mem­ory on the yearly cruise.

His set is from 6am on the Sunday and it can go on un­til the clean­ing staff tell them to stop.

“Some peo­ple are able to carry on and go to the end, but oth­ers end up stay­ing in bed be­cause they have over­done it the last few days. So it’s all about pac­ing your­self,” he ad­vised.

The an­nual 72-hour ocean party will be tak­ing place from De­cem­ber 1-4 and will see the DJs pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment for their fans with their pop­u­lar house beats.

The MSC Sin­fo­nia will set sail from Dur­ban to the Por­tuguese Is­land in Mozam­bique and re­turn to Dur­ban.

Fresh, whose real name is Thato Sik­wane, re­cently re­leased a sin­gle for Africa Day and is work­ing on remixes to come out of it be­fore the end of this month. He will also be at the SA Mu­sic Con­fer­ence that will be tak­ing place dur­ing the Dur­ban July week­end.

“It’s some­thing Eu­phonik, Greg Maloka, Oskido, Vinny da Vinci, Chris­tos and I work on ev­ery year,” he added.

House heads can also look for­ward to the 10th edi­tion of the iconic Fresh House Flavour.

“There’s also a brand new blog-type app that we will be launch­ing that is in­ter­ac­tive and dif­fer­ent from other artists and apps as you know them to be,” he said.

Book­ings for the OH SHIP! party cruise are open and those who want to be part of it are en­cour­aged to start choos­ing their cab­ins now and pay their de­posits.

DJ Fresh said there would be some sur­prises on the cruise this year.

“We will have live per­for­mances and the com­edy is go­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter. Peo­ple can ex­pect world-class fun.”

Fes­tiv­i­ties on-board will be over week­end
