Soundcheck - The Remix

Simon Wood

In 2012 we entered the Rode Rockumentary film competition with our documentary 'Soundcheck'.

This time, instead of focusing on how technology (like Rode microphones) enables musicians, we decided to go back to our roots and explore our musical heritage. Tradition and technology side by side.

Inspired by the cultural music and instruments of Uganda we remixed the original song using traditional acoustic instruments. Then we fused this with modern dancehall beats to create a genre new to the Ugandan music scene. But as always the question remains: will anyone dance to it?
