Laat ek sommer uit die staanspoor sê dat ek tot hierdie jaar nog nooit ’n Innibos-fees bygewoon het nie. As ’n self-erkende fees “junkie”, is ek nogal skaam dat hierdie jaarlikse instelling in Mbombela (Nelspruit) in Mpumalanga nog altyd buite my radar was. Meer as 100 000 mense wat per jaar hierdie fees bywoon (vanjaar het daar meer as 101 000 pare voete deur die hekke beweeg!) kan nie verkeerd wees nie, so ek is baie bly ek het besluit om my tassies te pak vir hierdie mengelmoes feeservaring.

His second album, a self-titled release, recently hit the shelves after three years in the making. I was curious to find out how this record came about and how much has changed since Mathew’s first rise to fame. Continue reading “Mathew Gold – Unapologetic on new self-titled release”

Go Barefoot released a music video for their song Hail, and the collaborative project, featuring three groups of dancers in a parallel narrative to that of the song. The exciting song, beautiful choreography and floating camerawork all come together in a tight package that celebrates the chaos of youth, and I couldn’t resist asking Saul Nossel, the group’s drummer, a few questions about it all… Continue reading “Go Barefoot Hails on nobody’s parade”
Like Harry met Sally, Luke meeting Hans, or Jay meeting Silent Bob, Henriel and Marius was meant to meet on that party bus, years ago, travelling to the dusty hills of OppiKoppi. Both having a deep passion for music, it was only a matter of time before this duo started hitting the stages of our local bars, clubs, and cafés. Catching them between performances and everyday activities, I got a chance to know The Fragments. Continue reading “Bands in Bars: Meet The Fragments – Creative dreamers with practical minds”
