Alternatief Is Groot CD Cover

Alternatief is Groot, en wil jou die kys vra

Op hoërskool, as jy ‘n oulike jong dame in die oog gehad het maar nie seker was hoe om jou gevoelens aan haar te openbaar nie, kon jy altyd ‘n mix CD maak. Dis nou oor ek in die vroeë 2000’s (na die tyd van kasette) op hoërskool was – ek vermoed hulle maak deesdae speellyste op hul gunsteling aanlyn musiekstroomdiens. Bogenoemde CD was dan propvol liefdesliedjies, sodat sy sou seker wees. As CD-maker was dit jou werk om ‘n versameling goeie liedjies te kies, hul in mekaar te laat vloei deur noukeurig die volgorde uit te werk, maar belangrikste van alles: om sonder twyfel jou verliefdheid uit te druk. Nou het die mense agter Coleske ArtistsSupra Familias, en Afrikaans is Groot saamgewerk om ‘n mix CD te maak wat vir ‘n wye gehoor van alternatiewe Suid-Afrikaanse musiekliefhebbers: Alternatief is Groot.

Jack Parow is launching his new EP: From Parow with Love

Jack Parow is back with a European collaboration EP – From Parow with Love. The story goes that, during Parow’s last tours to Europe, he met some artists from the other side of the pond, and decided to collaborate.

In typical hip-hop style, Die Ou Met Die Lang Swart Hoed has always been a fan of collaborations, but this is his most collab-heavy release yet – reaching “from Cape Town all the way to the Netherlands”. Continue reading “Jack Parow is launching his new EP: From Parow with Love”

Jack Parow - die ou met die snor by die bar

Die Ou Met Die Snor By Die Bar – Jack Parow vertel

Kyk, die feit dat daar ‘n amptelike Jack Parow biografie* verskyn het, is nie ‘n verrassing nie. Dit is dalk ‘n effense vreemde besluit, maar nadat Parow se platemaatskappy, Parowphernalia, al tekkies, ekstra-lang pette, comic books, en chilli- en braaisous begin verkoop het, kan niks mos meer verras nie. En al bevat Die Ou Met Die Snor By Die Bar nou geen staatsgeheime nie, is dit wel ‘n interessante kykie na die man agter die snor, en hoe hy sy sukses behaal het – al die pad uit Bellville uit.

Jack Parow vertel: ‘n Q&A oor Die Ou Met Die Snor By Die Bar

“Ek dink ek is die complete opposite van die gemiddelde rapper.”

Dis nog vroeg op ‘n Woensdagaand aan die noordelike randjie van Melville. Net agter daai ouderwetse “Welcome to Melville” bord is Love Books – ‘n knus, dog ruim boekwinkel. En ons is hier om te hoor hoe Jack Parow gesels met die joernalis Angola Badprop (oftewel Jaco Nel), oor sy nuwe boek – Die Ou Met Die Snor By Die Bar.
