About this project

How great is it to have a physical CD in your hand, with a booklet with information about the songs and the artists? It's pretty great! This is why I started this project. MP3s are convenient but do not tell the whole story. I have released a lot of music on vinyl, CDs and digitally via my record labels Ocha Records and Ocha Mzansi over the years and I am excited to include you in the process this go around. Your contribution will provide the funds for manufacturing the CDs. Let's Go!

The CASAMENA Radio Hour Vol 1 CD is a project that has been 3 years in the making. Many of the songs on this compilation are previously unreleased and represent the vibe that I have been putting forth in my club and radio DJ sets over the last 6 months. It includes unreleased tracks from Osunlade, Black Coffee, Atjazz and many more.  This is a 2 CD project. CD 1 is a DJ mix and CD 2 is a collection of separate tunes from the mix. The Booklet includes details about the songs and links to downloadable goodies which include more mixes by Carlos Mena.  If you are unfamiliar with the CASAMENA Radio Hour you can hear the show here:  http://podcast.casamena.com or you can subscribe on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/casamena-radio-hour/id215250971

A central figure and flag bearer in the international South African House movement, Carlos Mena has been a respected tastemaker in the house community for many years.  He has been known to break records in clubs and on radio that have gone on to huge success.  His CASAMENA Radio Hour is one of the most popular Deep Afro House music podcasts in the world.  It is syndicated on several stations worldwide and the program features new and unreleased tunes that go on to become staples in the sets of world renowned DJs.  Carlos also appears monthly on one of South Africa's most important radio stations YFM 99.2 with an exclusive mix on Saturday afternoon's "The Warehouse" program.

Risks and challenges

Creating a physical CD can be an expensive and time consuming endevour, by putting this project on Kickstarter, it takes the risk out of creating a CD for you. If you guys fund it, it will get manufactured. The music is ready to go and the artwork, text and it's layout are already underway. Our graphic designer Claudio Maike, who designs most of the artwork for Yoruba Records and our own Ocha Records is on board and ready to go!

Thank you!
