Episode 14. Saya and DJ Texsta

12/12/2023
With it being the season of goodwill, we decided here at the Slimson Podcast to give you one last special episode before we head into the New year. A 'Slimson Stocking Filler' packed full of House Music goodness! And as we had such a lovely time when we last chatted to Saya we thought it was only fair to invite her back onto the pod with her sidekick in all things dance and fellow Centreforce DJ: TEXSTA, who has been part of the music world for over 4 decades with his eclectic selections from the world of Soul, Reggae, House, Rave, Hardcore, Drum & Bass, Jungle & UK Garage. More recently Saya & TEXSTA have been creating magic together in the studio with their latest release ARRIVED ( a classic piece of house music that is addictive from the very first listen) which you can listen to along with other tracks at the end of this episode. Thanks as always to every single one of you who has downloaded this podcast and helped it to grow. We love making it and have lots of exciting new conversations planned for the New Year. Oh....and a BIG thank you too to 'Producer Jez'. Without him sprinkling his technical magic The Slimson Podcast would never have got off the ground. Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas.
