Call for submissions for the new DJ K Mixtape

28 January 2010 by , No Comments

I am just finishing my tracklist for a forthcoming mixtape that I am working on, but a part of me is saying that there is something missing…

I’ve actually got too many tracks and not all can fit but I still feel led to put out a public call to all Christian artists to submit tracks for consideration. So I have to obey the Holy Spirit and do just that.

ABOUT THE MIXTAPE.
It is called TRUE LOVE WAITS and all the tracks will touch on the themes of Godly relationships, sexual purity and defining real love as the Word of God teaches. This mixtape is about ministry, not creating hype about how I’m the hottest DJ.

WHAT TYPE OF TRACKS AM I LOOKING FOR?
Quality Christian music that that touches on at least one of theses themes.
It can be ANY genre or style of music or poetry, or even just an instrumental.
It must be a finished track, mixed properly etc (I has to sound good as well LOL!)

WHAT’S THE DEADLINE?
Yesterday!  No seriously, the deadline is 3rd Feb 2010 as I will record the mixtape live on 5th Feb.

HOW WILL MY TRACK BE USED?
*IF* I choose your track, I will include it on the mixtape and give you full credit on the CD inlay and on my website with links to your website or myspace.
I will not sell the CD at all.  A few copies will be made on CD and given away free at events and registered members of idonotconform.com will be able to download it.

HOW DO I SUBMIT TRACKS?
1.  Via email to  kelechi@dj-k.com  or
2.  Soundcloud DropBox – just use ‘DropBox’ below

Send me your track

OK.  That’s it.  Pray about it and if you feel led, please send me your track.

God Bless

One Night With Kirk Franklin

21 November 2009 by , 3 Comments

kirk-franklinTHE DISCOVERY CENTRE, Trinity Chapel, London, UK
18 November 2009

I must start this review by giving a vote of thanks to Pastor Dr Sola Fola-Alade and Trinity Chapel for hosting this event.  In the past top US gospel artists would look to churches to bring them over to their UK fans, but the trend over recent years has been for Churches to shy away from this, leaving it to (often secular) promoters.  This trend has brought rise to the fleecing of gospel music fans by money motivated promoters putting on half-baked events and taking the money out of our industry.
This one, however, was back to the good ol’ days when you could get real close to gospel music royalty in an intimate concert where it still felt like we were havin’ church.

I arrived a little late and expected to walk into the venue while the support acts were in full swing, but, ‘due to technical difficulties’ I simply joined the others who were patiently waiting for too long already.  By the time our hosts Tola Onigbanjo and Eddie Kadi finally came on it was obvious that it would take more than a couple of one-liners from them to warm up the crowd.

Bring on the acts already!

Up steps Rachel Kerr.  Armed with her breathtaking vocal ability, she started with an accapella song and  by the time she finished off with ‘Kingdom Solider’ the audience had started defrosting.

Next ting: Guvna B.  One of the UK gospel’s finest recording artistes proved that he is becoming one of the best live MCs with a well polished set. No more thawing needed, everyone’s on their feet now! The party is heating up.

Time for a set from up and coming RnB/worship artiste Matthew Allan, some hilarious Eddie Kadi stand-up and an intermission before the main event.

Up steps Kirk

Finally the moment we’ve all be waiting for.  On come the backing singers and band, then on comes Kirk Franklin, understated in a black t-shirt and jeans, looking relaxed, as ever.  He goes straight into the music, leading the songs, but hardly singing a word.  He doesn’t need to sing much, most of his songs use female choir lead vocals plus the audience are singling along to every word anyways.  Leaving Kirk with plenty of time to dance, crack jokes, pose for camera phone pictures and show love to the fans.

Kirk’s dance moves are something else! Sliding across the stage effortlessly, he’s like the James Brown of Gospel.  So natural on the stage, he has got to be one of the all time great gospel performers.  Him and his band had a relaxed air about them like they had done this show a million times before, yet they were enjoying themselves just as much as the audience.
One of the best bits was when Kirk sat down to play lead piano and let the backing singers and band take turns to freestyle solos. Real intimate.

The time flew by. Kirk sprinkled just the right amount of well known classic worship choruses in between his huge catalogue of contemporary hits.  How many artistes do you know that can do a 90min set where the crowd sing (and rap) along to every song?

Some people would have baulked at the ticket price, but those who did come along would testify that it was worth every penny considering we got a rare chance to see a full concert from one of Gospels all time greats, who is still at the top of his game after 15 years.
