Shack72's therapy

An innovative and unique way of taking radio to the people… meet Shack72.

Some will say its mind control, others would say its deep house therapy that gets in touch with the soul. Trinity Lounge presents Shack72 'Sundays belong to Sunday Therapy' every Sunday with a live DJ from here and all over.

DJ Deon, known as the Father of the Station, has been in the music industry for 23 years and is still going strong. “Collectively as a team we have over 30 years of experience in music across the disciplines including acting, artistry, sound, producing and events,” he said.

“Radio has remained a strong element of our culture, a source of communication. It is a platform to reach masses of audiences across the globe. Putting Namibia on the map has always been my number-one task. Shack72 is a place of therapy through communication.

“Shack72 caters for the best deep house DJs known to our local people, as a truly Namibian entity. We have redefined conventional radio, we are free and accessible through an online mobile application, allowing all social media users on the platform worldwide,” said Deon.

Shack72 online uses their various services for reliable and quality audio and visual streaming and have replaced the DJ as we know it with carefully selected content contributors to ensure that listeners and affiliates remain informed and entertained, with over 5 500 monthly listeners across multiple online platforms as well as the mobile app, which is available on the Apple Appstore for iOS users and Google Playstore for Android users.

Furthermore, to reduce the distance between the conventional radio station and the user, they have morphed into an interactive platform, where the user becomes part of the radio show with live broadcasts such as Sunday Therapy, which have been aired every Sunday since the beginning of March 2018.

Sunday Therapy is more than just a Sunday session. It has become a movement in its own right, providing a platform for the best local deep, soulful, experimental and underground house DJs and coupling them with the biggest names on the international stage.

“Sunday Therapy is and remains the only free event hosting the best local and international talent in Namibia,” said Deon. Shack72 will be branching out to other parts of the country over the summer holiday period, to give more people access to the vibe.

The next project for Shack72 online radio, would be the further development and completion of their own recording/producing and broadcasting studio, to establish a base camp with many exciting radio shows and where live broadcasting events take place from.

The next project for Sunday Therapy is hosting one of the heavyweights on the international dance music scene, Ralf Gum, on Sunday, 14 October, and EnoSoul on 25 November at Trinity Lounge Windhoek. More international acts have been lined up for the rest of 2018 and the beginning of 2019, so watch this space.

Also keep a look out for Sunday Therapy events around the coastal and northern regions of Namibia.

Shack72 thanks the host venue Trinity Lounge, for allowing them to bridge the gap between radio and user, Mammoth Events for their continued support and for providing only the best equipment for the last eight months of Sunday Therapy, and last but not least, their loyal following, the Sunday Therapy goer, the Sunday Therapy listener… without you there would be no Sunday Therapy.
