Space & Depth
Mike Muema aka Myckie, our music producer at K-Krew Records is working on his debut album Space and Depth. He has just released an EP of the same. He is a die hard EDM fanatic and arguably one of the best EDM producers and DJ in East Africa.
We asked him about Space and Depth:
This takes me back...2 years ago to the 7th of December, 2013. This is the day Space and depth was birthed...The same day my big sister departed. I remember that same night, I borrowed my mum's office keys, went to the supermarket , bought a box of biscuits, 5 litres of water, and a six pack of red bull..
Locked myself up in there for 2 and a half days mourning the passing on of my sister. Back then before I got a place to exploit my gifts in production.. my mum's office was my studio where i used to make beats. It's the same place I made the Ngore Makomete remix by Samawati Band.
After the 3 days went back home, freshened up and went out for a walk. During that walk, I thought of who my sister was to me. And then it hit me, Why not do something to remember her?....SPACE - after the loss I needed my space to think and mourn and through the SPACE I made beats that carried a lot of DEPTH, Music that takes the listener on a journey, a journey that creates happiness, fun and laughter. In One of the tracks I featured in the EP titled " Music for the kids".. my intention for this was to just bring out the statement which says " Even when words fail, Music speaks"
So too cut the long story short, Space and Depth is a special Dedication to My sister. Jackie Mwende. RIP. I love you..
