The show is on the air every other Saturday of the month. In January Diplo and Autoerotique a house group from Toronto released a music video titled "Waist Time" which was filmed in a warehouse in London. It's a collection of his work from over the past four years by one of the hardest-working knob-twiddlers in showbusiness right now.

That was the sound the label wanted for Kano. I made this record in a really hip-hop way with samples. I used an old George Harrison cover made new with old sounds. I still really like it now; it didn't really do anything when it was released but people went crazy when Kano did it live. Buraka Som Sistema aren't part of the scene in Africa but they were playing kuduro at parties in Portugal.
