Kennedy Thal sings it to the world on latest demo.
If this is a trend that Kennedy Thal intends on keeping up throughout the summer, it’s about to be a season of good vibrations.
As was the case with the the last demo, we have little to no information about the future of “You Are the One”. What we do know is that it features DRMTK and a more produced sound than its predecessor.
It’s desperate cry for love that is ironically sexy. It’s a song that’s five to radio-ready and proves the worth of a young artist ready to explode.
Get your summer started off to a smooth groove with, “You Are the One”.
The second and penultimate installment of the shortfilm Slow Horses sees our tragic hero lead begin his out-of-control spiral to peril.
Kudos to you Mr Rebello – we couldn’t think of a better song to go with the midway chapter than “The Love You Sell”. It is precisely this song that magnifies the violence that is Part II’s climatic end. Make no mistake: violence is inexcusable. But as it goes with the Othellos and Oedipuses of the world, there’s a part in all of us that tends to sympathise with particular offenders in particular circumstances. So perhaps one could understand – however not condone – the actions of one who defends the love he fell victim to purchasing.
Or maybe life just sucks and no matter how nicely you clean up for your girl’s house party, a leopard never changed its spots. Whatever it is, it’s a great motion picture underscored by great music.
DJ Clock and Beatenberg arouse nostalgia on new single.
If there’s one thing that seems to be on DJ Clock’s side it’s time, and what with him only being on The 4th Tick, it’s clear that we’re still in for many more hits to come.
“Pluto (Remember You)” serves as both the second single off of Clock’s The 4th Tick: A Clockumentary and the second single from breakout band Beatenberg. The infectious house number makes use of the writing talents of Beatenberg singer Matthew for tune that’s as catchy as it is catered for the summer party scene.
We suggest you get your dancing shoes on – it’s about to be a party!
Beatenberg are currently in studio recording their debut full length, The Hanging Gardens of Beatenberg due for release early 2014. Feedbaq will be sure to bring you the latest on this and DJ Clock.
A hot new dance track perfectly catered for summer partygoers is what Eazy has packaged in 4 uptempo minutes.
Eazy’s “Dirty Mind” fuses EDM, house and some very well placed kwaito accents for a sound all his own. Not only does it gel so effortlessly but it just sounds like it was always meant to be. Concerning the title: we rate it’s an indication of where the music might take you to once the groove gets in you – yes, it’s that infectious.
Be warned: playing this jam at the office might not be the wisest of decisions this early in the week. If your manager is going to sign those Christmas leave forms best you stay on your best behaviour.
Every summer, party goers are offered the opportunity to refresh their repertoire with a new dance craze. Have you caught on to the Y-tjukutja?
We won’t bother trying to figure out what it means or where it originates from. The new Uhuru track is irresistible and even if you’re not a pro Y-tjukutja-er, you’ll find an excuse to get up and dance to this number. As if that wasn’t enough, it features house heavyweights and legends including DJ Bucks, Oskido, Professor and Angolan vocalist, Yuri-Da-Cunha.
Summer’s officially here and that means it’s time to get down. Get your Y-tjukutja on with the new Uhuru hit!
Euphonik is going Wild for the Night at Taboo in Sandton!
Friday, 6 December, will see the biggest house and hip hop party of the year kick off the end-of-year party scene.
Euphonik, in association with Channel O and Superga, brings you Wild for the Night. Both house and hip hop heads will be catered for on the night with two dedicated floors at Taboo in Sandton. Expect your favourite house DJs including Fresh, Black Coffee, Kent and, of course, Euphonik. On the hip hop bill, DJs Sphectacula, Speedsta and Capital are set to keep all the snapback-clad heads bopping.
With many more DJs listed for the night, it’s the one party that’s sure to get the year-end party scene started. Make sure you can I say, “I got wild that night” by purchasing your ticket for a cool R150 at Computicket.
We’ve heard it time and time before: music connects the world. The following project reaffirms this sentiment in the most practical way possible.
DJs Fresh and Euphonik set out to record a new summer jam with Brick & Lace vocalist, Nyanda. The collaboration would see them jet off to Miami to record the new track. Between Fresh recording Euphonik recording him, meeting up with Europe’s top DJs, partying until after 2AM in Miami and why kids shouldn’t drink, the party single of the summer was recorded and approved by Miami’s hardest partygoers!
Catch up with F.eU and their Miami antics and get the party started with the Nyanda-featured, “Cool & Deadly”.
Nothing could have prepared us for the new video by DJ Dimplez, not even the teaser video he dropped a while ago.
The Red Button and SFS-assisted new single, “They Wanna Know”, is visually aided with a creative and artistic new video. What comes across as a organized gang unit trading in a car parts dumpster, turns out to be an attempt to keep music alive at all costs.
You’ve partied to the track more times than alcohol will allow you to remember – the time has come to relish the creativity that is both track and accompanying video.
The show ended with a concluding statement by the MC dubbing him the “most innovative artist” from South Africa, and it’s just as well, because if you have yet to encounter the creative tour de force that is Spoek Mathambo you’ll have no choice but to agree after watching this set.
Spoek Mathambo took over the main stage at this year’s Rocking the Daises with one goal in mind: to cause a riot up in that mofo. Performing all his hits, including fan favourites, “Control”, “Father Creeper” and “Let Them Talk”, a mask-clad Mathambo turned things into a mosh pit!
Known for his eccentric style, this performance was a lesson in stage costume. A tribal print jumpsuit paired with a yellow coat and gold mask completed the first of two outfits for his RTD set. It wasn’t long before the finale would see him lose both coat and mask for a Native American chief’s hat.
But this wasn’t before he was to invite his special guest Zoe Modiga on to the stage who tinged the alternative hip hop set with her cocoa butter, earthy sound, allowing us to see her fragile side with her acoustic solo. A duo (or two) was in order and the seamless gelling of the two distinct sounds reaffirmed the length and breadth of Mathambo’s innovative prowess.
He’s one of the country’s most valuable exports and there is no better experience of the genius that is Spoek Mathambo than the live experience. Got yours below.
Moz Kidd means business. If you didn’t know, now you know!
We first discovered the young rapper when he released the Blaze-assisted single, “Playing Games (Ladies.Is.Pimps.Too)”, early last month. From the looks of it, there are no games to be played here though – this young guy means business.
Moz Kidd debuts his next single, “U Know” today as a response to the critics – negative, positive, or otherwise – letting them know that age is but a number. At 16 years old, the flow you appreciated on his last single is taken the next level on this new cut. And how many artists can claim a quality music video that made its way onto to national television at his age?
It seems there’s no stopping this young guy and in case you weren’t so sure about that sentiment he makes sure you know on his new single.
Feedback Musiq got a first listen to the new Elvis Flybeatz-produced single, “U Know”, which is available for exclusive download here.
