Malika: I think it’s so important.
Bayden: Especially because four of us in the core are non-Danish we all have an affinity and an attraction to experiencing other cultures and seeing what is different and the same and also seeing what you can discover. I think it’s essential also for the reach to other community radios around the world. We went to NY last year us three and Dominique, we had the reason to go somewhere new so we had all those enjoyments, but then we also had something share and invest.
Malika: Also even for me living in London gave me the inspiration to build something in Copenhagen that wasn’t here before. I fully support. Dominique really gets that too, travelling around and seeing whats happening and thinking how can we implement that in Copenhagen and in Denmark so yeah travel is so important. We should do an inspiration trip every month!
Bayden: Especially the reach, we first were thinking about our Western reach but then what Dom did in Accra was just crazy.
Malika: I play music so I link up with other DJ’s and people will say like hey I saw you play in New York and that’s amazing. For us to be able to link up our DJ’s with a radio station in New York, or radio station in London, that’s a huge asset and positive thing for every DJ or producer because they get to expose their music. I think that’s also why I don’t see any other community radios as competitors, their more like colleagues and we’re all working together
Sabrina: If they couldn’t exist we couldn’t exist.
Bayden: Travel is also intrinsically linked to these kind of platforms because we have guests who also play on other radio stations around the world. When I was in Barcelona like two months ago I reached out to Dub Lab, and told them what we’re doing they were like woah perfect we’re always down to support people who are doing the same thing so come and play a set! I was just flying the MMH flag.
Malika: Radio8000 did 2 days of every global community radio to broadcast for 2 hours which was so sick.
Mark: It was actually global and it was incredible. They had like over 20 radio stations from all over the world. They're the ones who came for us too which was a great debut.
Bayden: Its inspiring if people are listening on their station for that broadcast, its literally connecting the dots musically around the world. If MMH are playing right now, this is the sound they represent and and now I want to go check it out.
Sabrina: And its also for the DJ’s that come here because of our location it’s also quite interesting, its historically part of Copenhagen so come over here and see the famous meat packing district. You hear about it a lot because of all the restaurants and clubs around but it’s nice for them to come and get into this back door.
