Steppas Choice 49: 
Selector Lloyd, C4TR & MC Operation

ZeeCity Bellevue @ Night

Once again a very lively Show on
Radio Radius… Selector Lloyd was smashing it, serious pressure together with MC Operation and myself. And as usual Selector Lloyd was serving the bassy madness.
After the heavy Server and Computer Failure and Crash, which prevent Unfinished and me from serving you the usual Monday Night Show, I was looking forward to this a lot. Once again a massive Big Up to David Flatz from the Technical Group at Radio Radius. Nonetheless the planned Show will take place in the Show of the 29th December 2008. Unfinished and me gonna do a little Dubplate Pressure Session.

Selectaa going wild

When I arrived at the Studio I was first very disappointed because, also once again, Beni and his Moanin Show wasn’t there. So no Hardcore Apéro Jazz for the early listeners of Steppas Choice! Beni what’s happening?
My disappointment went away when I entered the room, where the actual action takes place… The Monitors for the DJ are back (or replaced with new or secondhand ones?)! Anyway It felt good to have them back and to raise the level in the studio to a state where you can enjoy the music and the Basslines!

MC Operation

As always Selector Lloyd played proper spanking hefty Bassmusic for the listeners’ pleasure!

By the way:
Being online and taking part by using the shoutbox as a listener during the show is not only nice because you can interact, but because on this way you always get the latest news, some nice links and the possibility to meet other Steppaz. One of the links that were submitted by the shoutbox during the show was the download link for the latest Studio Mix from Slass.Visit the
Unreleased Kollektiv Homepage to download the new Mix from Slass! Heavily recommended!

For the first time I took the time to write a Playlist… so here it is:

I’m gonna use these occasion to give David Flatz, the Master Genius of Technical Wizardries at Radio Radius a maximum BIG UP for his dedication and time to fix that Problem with the Computer System! It’s highly appreciated! Maximum Respect to you, David!

Offical Note from the Radio Radius Management

Vor ein paar Tagen ist unser Fileserver abgeschmiert. Deswegen sind in dieser Woche ein paar Sendungen ausgefallen.
Wir möchten uns für diesen Ausfall entschuldigen. Wir haben alles wieder soweit hergerichtet, dass der Livebetrieb wieder aufgenommen werden kann. Allerdings sind im Moment alle unsere Daten futsch. Wir versuchen alles um sie wieder herzustellen. Drückt uns die Daumen!

Orwell was right

Dealing with technical Difficulties: Steppas Choice 48: DJ Unfinished & C4TR

Dear Steppas

I received today an e-mail from the Radio Radius Management saying that the server over which we broadcast, is temporarly down but it still would be possible to do a show. You would just have to restart the server computer and start the show immediately. Pretty upset about this sad news I checked the
Radio Radio Shoutbox and there was written that today and for the near future there won’t be any shows.
I couldn’t believe it! I thought the guys in the studio didn’t get that bloody e-mail from the Radio Radius Management. So I contacted them by shoutbox and told them to restart everything! Lucky me they did that but bloody shit it still didn’t work even not with that bloody trick… Quiet disappointing!
Anyway… I can’t change it! So I called DJ Unfinished and told him not to come! What a shame! I’m deeply sorry for all the Steppas that were looking forward to the real dubplate pressure Show from Unfinished and myself. We gonna redo this as soon as possible.
But Unfinished, already mentally ready for the show did a mini replacement mix! Lovely! Maximum Respect to DJ Unfinished! So at least some serious Bass Pressure for tonight! Now let's hope that the technical Radio Radius Staff can solve that problem in reasonable time!

Download the mix here:
