Interview: Trancemicsoul

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.

Interview: Newtown Knife Gang

I am possibly one of the biggest fans of Newtown Knife Gang, I may even be a borderline groupie (I call it man love). When ‘Listen’ dropped in 2011 I was excited AF to see the guys back on stage and this time with a new frontman, Spencer Martin. Their self-titled debut album was a success and we saw the band playing shows all over South Africa and in 2016 things were no different. They released their latest single ‘Crossroads’, which was playlisted on national radio and this allowed the band to extend their reach on a more mainstream level.

Interview: Our Last Night

It’s 2017, and we’re all trying to shake off the festive season, and get back into the monotonous day-to-day routines of life. As soul destroying as that might be, there are bigger issues in the world, and there’s one that is currently plaguing Mzanzi as we speak, Rhino poaching/extinction. Don’t fret, if we ALL do our little bit, we can change the tides and make sure future generations can have the privilege of witnessing a Rhino in its natural habitat. Our Last Night, an international band from Hollis, New Hampshire, U.S.A, have decided to take it upon themselves to play their part in fighting the good fight, and are playing at this years Rocking For Rhinos 2017 for MAHALA (therefore the Rand-Dollar exchange rate won’t be an issue). We caught up with Alex Woodrow aka Woody, and discussed their upcoming S.A tour while getting to know them a little better.

Froback Friday: We Shall Embrace

Recently I started cleaning up my hard drives, old laptop, and cleaning up my camera gear a little. In doing so I discovered some old photos I had taken of shows from around before I realized it was what I loved doing and pre having any kind of decent camera… Yes, I found photos from my old Sony point and shoot. Who should I find in the mix of photos but none other than the band that started me on my journey, ?We Shall Embrace?.

Review: Lost and Found – Lost and Found

Artist:?Lost and Found
Genre:?Alternative country
Year: 2016

Is it the Bones? Is it the ?Tones? Nope, it?s Lost and Found.

Lost and Found is the new alternative country side project made up of Glen Hodgson (The Parlotones) and Jason Oosthuizen (Black Cat Bones). Fusing vast influences the end result is an album that would have fit in perfectly with the folk-rock era of the late 60?s.
