Colour Faction

Q&A: Colour Faction plays Marco Polo with The Flow

New Joburg-based Indie-pop band Colour Faction recently released their debut, a self-titled EP. It’s fresh, bright, melodic, and remarkably visually inspiring. We got the chance to ask Joshua G. Ackerman a few questions about the fascinating release.

RECAP: Liefde by die dam 2017

Alhoewel ek nie self by verlede jaar s’n was nie, kon mens agterkom aan die gehoor dat Liefde By Die Dam 2017 reeds soos ‘n instelling voel. Daar is ‘n rustige gemak aan die konsertgangers by Emmarentia Dam, wat heel waarskynlik omtrent op hul agterstoep kon kom piekniek hou, musiek luister, en aan ‘n maklike liefdadigheidsveldtog deelneem.

Matt Carstens - 2D heart

Matt Carstens Album Review: 2D Heart

New kid on the block, Matt Carstens, released his debut album 2D Heart in April 2017. From the get-go and throughout the whole album there is a heartwarming and soul-lifting vibe about his acoustic, singer-songwriter style that gives South Africans hope for more amazing local talent on the rise.

Loki Rothman - Liefde by die dam 2017

Onderhoud: Loki Rothman en kie is by Liefde by die Dam 2017

Loki Rothman is meestal bekend vir sy virtuoso kitaarspel, maar is ook ‘n sanger en liedjieskrywer in eie reg. Hy het die Top 6 van South Africa’s Got Talent gehaal, en al saam met Jack Parow, Die Heuwels Fantasties, en nou ook Laurika Rauch opgetree en opgeneem. Eersdaags sal hy in Johannsburg te sien wees by Liefde By Die Dam 2017 op 6 Augustus, waar Riana Nel, Jo Black, Majozi, Die Heuwels Fantasties, JR, Tresor, Francois van Coke en Laurika Rauch ook sal optree. Ons het vir Loki ‘n paar vrae gevra om ons opwinding te stook…

Innibos

Goed, Beter, Innibos 2017

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.

Mathew Gold

Mathew Gold – Unapologetic on new self-titled release

South-African R&B/Soul artist Mathew Gold has paved his way to success these past couple of years. His smooth voice regularly fills the radio waves and it’s especially the SAMA nominated song, Taking It Easy, with Goodluck in 2011, that made people aware of his immense talent. 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.

Wandile Mbambeni

Wandile Mbambeni has matured with a new EP

Wandile Mbambeni and his showstopping voice waves on the local singer-songwriter scene when he debuted, and only expanded and matured from there. His new EP, Maturation, is evidence of this. We asked him a few questions about the music and the journey…

Go Barefoot Hails on nobody’s parade

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…
