Local Djs in the spotlight


Last issue, I announced that the Soca Sessions team is inviting Montreal DJS to submit one hour of their Soca mixes to be aired live on CKUT 90.FM.
This project titled “SOCA IN YUH 514” will kick off on October 17th as we have decided to use our platform on the FM dial to give upcoming and established Djs an opportunity to showcase their turn-table talents and skills as party-goers and music-lovers remain in lock down.
We are now entering The Great Unknown, the second wave of COVID-19 is here, where restrictions and regulations are forcing more businesses to close and we are mandated to stay indoors because of the shift from orange (alert) to red (maximum alert) status.
COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown has brought about a sense of fear and anxiety in our community, especially since more people are staying at home due to the situation.
That is why “Soca In Yuh 514” is not only an opportunity for the Djs to showcase their talent but for listeners as well to relieve stress, by music therapy.
“Soca In Yuh 514” on Soca Sessions starts October 17th and airs early Saturday mornings (or late Friday nights) from 2:00am – 4:00am on CKUT 90.3FM or www.ckut.ca. Here’s the listing of Dj’s to be aired live on Soca Sessions for the month of October.

“Pierre Alex Theodore”, was born and raised in Haiti, then migrated to Montreal
in 2006. After graduating from Concordia University in 2013, he started getting into producing and writing his own songs. Piyou eventually created a small independent label with a friend, called Korus Music Group, where they recently released an Album.
Piyou Djing started as part of their stage performances with Korus Music Group for Jovial Mtl events and that’s where his love for Soca music actually began, as he found Soca music close to what we have in Haiti but it has its own charm.
