This month, DJ Fro (Ludwig Marcus Schandorf), takes us through is a drum and bass set that changes the House Rules forever. Having racked up some accolades including “Best Campus DJ of the Year” award at the Ghana DJ Awards 2014 the 28 year old spins magic on the decks. Listen to his set below:

 

 WHERE ARE YOU RIGHT NOW? DESCRIBE YOUR SURROUNDINGS. WHAT DO YOU SEE? WHAT DO YOU HEAR? WHAT CAN YOU SMELL?

In my room with a drink in glass and lots of ice cubes, I see my large smart TV on the wall and my DJ setup right beneath it.

I just heard Peter Mensah yelling at Zach McGowan saying, “Arcadian put down your sword” in “The Scorpion King (2018)” movie. I smell Irish cream and the sweet scent of Jollof (from the plate that I had my lunch).

IF YOU COULD NAME THIS MIX, WHAT WOULD YOU CALL IT?

Afro Drum & Bass

WHAT DO YOU IMAGINE PEOPLE DOING AS THEY LISTEN TO THIS MIX?

Tapping feet. Dancing. Drinking. Eating. Working out.

IF THIS MIX WERE AN ICE CREAM, WHAT FLAVOR WOULD IT BE?

Well, it’ll definitely be a creamy mix of hazelnut and chocolate cos its African.

YOU’RE A NEW ADDITION TO THE CRAYON BOX, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?

Black so I can strongly blend in with any color.

WHAT IS THE FUNNIEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU RECENTLY?

I was like, my dad will ring my phone right now (all in my head) then in less than 10sec he rang my phone. LOL

IF YOU COULD ONLY CHOOSE ONE SONG TO PLAY EVERY TIME YOU WALKED INTO A ROOM FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

F#$k! That’s a tough one but I’ll settle for “Madcon – Beggin”.

YOU WAKE IN THE LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED AS ONE OF THE CHARACTERS. WHAT MOVIE IS IT, AND WHICH CHARACTER ARE YOU?

Deadpool 2. I’m Deadpool.

YOU MEET 3 AFRICAN MUSICIANS AND THEY WANT TO HAVE A PARTY. WHO ARE THEY, AND WHAT ARE YOU PLAYING THEM FIRST?

Juls, Wizkid and Vanessa Mdee (My Celebrity Crush).

First song: “Young, Wild & Free” by Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa.

 

DESCRIBE THE COLOUR BLUE TO A BLIND PERSON.

Honestly, I can’t.

A GOAT WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR RIGHT NOW WEARING A GUCCI RAG. WHAT DOES HE SAY AND WHY IS HE HERE?

LOL, so goat walks in.

He’s like, Yo! What day is it? You are late.

I’m like, Friday…wait WTF! Did you just speak to me? In English?

He’s like, yeah duhhhh. I thought today was Sallah or Christmas or something so I came to present myself. Okay, as you were.
