Trancemicsoul, is a legend! His mixes got me through some hard times in 2016, and seeing him live in Johannesburg and Cape Town, made me realise how big of a career he has ahead of him. With his love for house music and techno, he has infused the two, and the result is insane. It will undoubtedly get anyone on the dancefloor moving. Basically, he induces an uncontrollable urge just to move to the beat. His mixes are a true musical journey, that will uplift your soul, and ultimately your overall mood. The mix that I have listened to repeatedly, and that caught my attention, was filmed by Militia Broadcast, for Red Bull Studios in Cape Town, and trust me when I say – you WANT to watch this.Continue Reading

I remember it was like yesterday – Johannesburg, 1 Fox Street, September 2016 – this vibrant energy came on stage, my attention shifted and I was glued to the stage for the next 45 minutes. It was electrifying! It could have been the best performance I saw live in 2016. I met her yet again at an event in 2017 and yet again, she stole the show! So it was no surprise that when the lineup for Grietfest dropped, I took the opportunity to interview Moonchild Sanelly in an instant. One thing I know for sure, come next week Saturday at Grietfest, don’t miss this amazing lady on stage.Continue Reading

There have been a lot of lineups announced for the South African festival season but this is one party you do not want to miss in 2017. The crew at Griet have worked endlessly to craft an eargasmic lineup, and who knows how they will pimp the venue before the 26th August, to give you the ultimate party experience.Continue Reading
On a pretty ordinary Saturday afternoon we made our way to a rather extraordinary experience. Grietfest was held in a shipping container yard south of Johannesburg. The venue had a grungy feel to it, but most importantly it had the incredible ability to trap deafening bass that shook you to the core.Continue Reading
Grietfest 2016 has promised to be bigger and better than before, and I have no doubt it will set a new standard for events to come. This is the second year they are hosting this bass phenomenon at the container yard and from what I have seen already, it is going to be MASSIVE.?Continue Reading
We all dig going to events, but most of us don’t always know the full lineup. We get sold on the international acts and we forget all about the local talent. We ALL need to stop thinking like this. It’s the 21st century – start acting like it. Our local music scene is highly talented and we need to start supporting it more for it to grow.?Lineups aren’t just thrown together, they are the selling point of events/festivals and are highly thought out, if not debated a lot.?
It’s time we start arriving to support the floor openers and continue that enthusiasm until the local DJ who has the privilege of closing the floor.?
I personally haven’t been around the Drum and Bass scene in South Africa for that long but what I have experienced is amazing. We caught up with B-Wise and took some time out to get to know him, and now I’m left with some serious FOMO?knowing that I am not able to be at Grietfest at the end of August.?Continue Reading

The container yard, in Johannesburg, plays host to this 12 hours spectacular of dirty bass driven music which will transform your life.?Continue Reading
