Kfm Top40 with Carl Wastie [#KfmTop40]
TiMO ODV on All I Want, DOTA, his early gigs

TiMO ODV on All I Want, DOTA, his early gigs

3 February 2020 3:57 AM

TiMO ODV has a new banger out – just in time for Huawei KDay 2020 on the 7th of March at Meerendal Estate.

The Jo’burg based artist, caught up with Carl Wastie on the Kfm Top 40 this past weekend (1 Feb 2020) about the new single, ‘All I Want’, and how it came about (spoiler alert: this track, unlike his previous single, the toilet was not instrumental in creating this one).

He also gave us a little insight into what he does in his spare time and revealed that he is quite a boss at playing DOTA. Whilst it has been quite a while since TiMO has played Carl’s favourite game, FIFA, – Carl laid down the gauntlet that at Hauwei KDay he wants to take TIMO on at FIFA backstage!

TiMO may be one of the biggest DJ-producers in South Africa – and we may know all his jams now – but also revealed in this highly entertaining interview, is some of the best awkward moments when TiMO was still starting out (and saying “yes” to any gig that would pay).

2020 has been a big year for Cape Town artist, Mathew Gold, with the Kfm Top 40 with Carl Wastie.

It’s been the year he scored his first no.1 (‘Burn’) on the chart; but has also seen him enter the Top 10 on two separate occasions as a featured artist – most recently with ZYO’s ‘Dockside Days’, but previously with a firm listener favourite, the Kiffness’ remake of ‘Baker Street’.

Now he’s back with his next solo single, ‘Precious Time’.

The song is out on Friday, 11 September 2020, but as the home to exclusives, the Kfm Top 40 gave listeners a first time listen of the song on Saturday, 5 September 2020 – one week ahead of release.

Mathew Gold dropped by the Kfm 94.5 studios to surprise Carl Wastie for the exclusive first-time play.
