Carpe Riche


Read the Carpe Riche Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


I’m Carpe Riche (Real Name: Mahlatsi Mokwele) Originally from South Africa, a young Legend to be, I grew up in a household where music was the order day. My father played a huge role in me loving music the way I do at the moment. He exposed me to great artist of his day, genres ranging from funk to jazz to soul, so on and so forth, from then I just had the hunger to know more about music; and I haven’t stopped since. I literally had 2 Spinners albums in my phone at the age of 10; Music always seemed to help get rid of many of my problems.

I started Dj’ing at the age of around 9 or 10, it was only a hobby of mine at this stage, I only started taking it serious when I got to high school.

I started off like any other Dj who didn’t have all the necessary equipment; I started off using automix then moved on to virtual DJ and now I’m on CDJ’s and I’m currently moving on to producing as well.

I’m no hater to the vast varieties of music genres. I’ve produced chill wave, hip hop and Deep nostalgic house tracks (all of which still need to be released during the course of 2018).

I’ve been privileged to be on RiverFM and around my peers who have succeeded in what they love and this has constantly been the burning fire within me that keeps me going no matter what, One of which is Dodo (Real Name: Nokaka Mojapelo) and Didi Monsta who have a successful brand of clothes and music. I look up to Dj’s/artists like Snow Deep, Dinho, Josiah De Disciple, Kabza De Small, Gaba Cannal, Shuffle Muzik, Khumo MRD, Sandy MRD, Soul-Native , Victor Hugo and a best friend of mine GloboYusuke amongst Many.

I just want to gain as much as I can as an artist.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I’ve always loved house music, always and forever, but over the years I’ve gained an interest in EDM, Chillwave, Rave, Dubstep and other branches that make up the ‘house tree’.

At the age of about 14, I remember I had produced about 3 remixes of dance tracks, one of which was Kid Cudi’s pursuit of happiness, using virtual DJ. I literally mashed up about 3 or 4 dance tracks, snipping and cutting their beats and acapella’s and then finally recording everything, I literally felt like I was on top of the world.

I also have a tast for pop music (which I previously didn’t like), trap music, Acid Jazz; basically any other Genre of music outside house, I’ve taken an interest in. This, in turn, has broadened my perspective and knowledge on music.

I believe young an up coming artists hold the key to evolving music, so it’s important that we gain as much knowledge on music as a whole before we try evolving it.


What´s new right now?


I’ve been working on a couple of projects since my last RiverFM mix (check it out on SoundCloud), I’ve produced 3 tracks, the first is a Chillwave type of track which I plan to release in February, the second is a Nostalgic Deep House Track which I’ll be releasing as soon as I’m done with the touch ups and the other is a hip hop track which I plan to feature a friend of mine, GloboYusuke, he’s also on SoundCloud. I’m also releasing another .DeleCarpe//SosimiRiche. Mixtape, all of which can be found on my SoundCloud profile.

Links for download will be on twitter, SoundCloud and Facebook.

I’m also planning on starting or collaborating with a well known DJ in the Vaal, DJ MaestroDeCasa, I would like to produce tracks and learn from him and possibly start an events magement company as well as feature artists like Soul-Native and Victor Hugo, I don’t want to reveal too much but 2018 is my year. The fans won’t know what hit them.
