New Driemanskap video: Ivamna (Love Potion)

April 2, 2012 Free MP3, Music, Video No Comments

Driemanskap premiered their latest video, Ivamna (Love Potion), on SABC’s LIVE on Friday 30th March. As always, Twitter went crazy as soon as it was shown.

The video, which was directed by Ari Kruger from Sketchbook Studios and spo0ky, shows Driemanskap’s softer side with a song dedicated to the special women in their lives. Planet Earth sets the tone with his easy, laid-back production.

Ivamna is the fourth and final video from Driemanskap’s highly-acclaimed debut album, Igqabhukil’ Inyongo. The Gugulethu-based crew are currently in the final stages of production for their second album, Hlala Nam, which is expected to drop towards the end of 2012.

Ma-B – “Don’t Doubt Me | New Music

Dont Doubt Me - Ma-B

Driemanskap’s Ma-B just dropped this free-download banger on Pioneer Unit’s Soundcloud entitled “Don’t Doubt Me”. The brand new track produced by Hipe sees Ma-B follow up his recent single, “Make A Move”, where he dropped bombs on swagger emcees and challenged underground rappers to stop complaining and make a move. Naturally a few rappers caught feelings.

On “Don’t Doubt Me”, Ma-B demonstrates why he’s currently one of the hottest emcees in South Africa right now with a vicious flow and hard hitting lyrics. Enjoy…

Pure Solid played their first show at Cold Turkey a few weeks ago (which you can listen to, and download below). Their dub-based sound doesn’t fit neatly into any particular category – it contains influences of roots, hip hop, grime, acid and Detroit techno – they call it Robot Army Music (RAM).

Driemanskap Re-release Itsho Into to Commemorate the Soweto Uprising

June 16, 2011 Culture, Free MP3, Music 2 Comments

I first heard Itsho Into in 2005. It still remains one of my favourite hip hop tracks of all time. El Nino, Redondo and Ma-B (Dla hadn’t joined the crew yet) spit righteous flames on the Lungelo-produced anthem.

When the organ starts and El Nino says, “Rest in peace to the Gugulethu 7, Bantu Biko, Chris Hani! Driemanskap!” and Redondo shouts, “Fire burn!”, it gives me chills every time. The original separates for Itsho Into have long been lost and the only remaining recording is a bit rough, but the passion in the words still burns through.

Driemanskap have re-released Itsho Into to commemorate the Soweto Uprising, which took place on this day in 1976. On that day, 35 years ago, a student leader called Tsietsi Mashinini organised a mass-demonstration, taking a stand against the Apartheid regime. Many young people lost their lives that day but it was a turning point in the liberation struggle.

Today in South Africa June 16th is a public holiday called Youth Day. It is important to remember what this day actually commemorates so that it doesn’t just become a day off or another excuse to party.

You can download Itsho Into by clicking the black arrow on the right side of the music player below…

Driemanskap Re-release Snakes and Fakes. Free Download.

June 15, 2011 Free MP3, Music No Comments

Due to popular demand, Driemanskap have re-released a re-mastered version of their underground hit Snakes and Fakes. This El Nino-produced track first appeared shortly before the 2009 release of Driemanskap’s debut album, Igqabhukil’ Inyongo.

The track warns of the dangers of snakes who come in human form. You know the type, right?
