#badmanvideo Banner

Make sure you tune into Live Amp on SABC1 this coming Friday, 19th July at 9pm, to catch the premiere of ‘Badman’, the first video from the South Africa, Sweden hip hop exchange project, ‘Kwaai’.

Alongside Driemanskap and Kanyi, look out for Syster Sol, Mofeta, Kristin Amparo & Cleo – all well known and respected musicians in Sweden. The hook of the track, which is in Swedish, goes…

“Badman ain’t got a chance in my league /
Chance in my league, chance in my league /
Through the darkness I’ll continue to shine /
Come, come test me…”

Let’s get #badmanvideo and #kwaai trending on Friday when the video plays on Live Amp. If you’re not doing so already, follow @Driemanskap and @Kanyi_Mavi on Twitter.

The ‘KWAAI Worldwide’ album is available worldwide, but if you’re in South Africa you can get it from the South African iTunes store.

Jaak featured on the BBC’s Africa Beats

Jaak on Africa Beat on the BBC

In September 2012 Jaak shot an episode of Africa Beats, a series of short films shot by the BBC that exposes up and coming talent from the African continent. The episode featuring Jaak recently aired on BBC World and is placed permanently on the BBC website.

In this episode, Jaak talks about reclaiming the Afrikaans language for black and brown people, so they can take pride in it, rather than being ashamed of its association with the former oppressors. He also performs an acoustic version of ’63,000′, a track from his forthcoming album, ‘Galant’, which vividly describes how his slave ancestors were brought to the Cape. Jaak is joined by Tebz (violin), Jonette (vocals) and Nossie (drums).

Jaak’s second album, ‘Galant’, will be out later this year. Stay tuned for more information.

Cape Town Effects live at Les Abattoirs | Photos

The Cape Town Effects team spent 8 days in residence at Les Abattoirs in Bourgoin-Jallieu, a small town near Lyon, France. During that time the team, consisting of KONFAB, El Nino (Driemanskap), Jaak, Tebz, Big Space, spo0ky, Dplanet, FX (lighting technician) and Chris (sound engineer), rehearsed and prepared for their first two shows.

The ‘Cape Town Effects’ project aims to create a snapshot of the South African underground music scene by creating a live show and releasing an album – a beautiful way for Jarring Effects to celebrate 10 years of musical connection with Cape Town.

Putting together a full show in such a short time was quite an achievement but everyone worked hard and the results showed. Check out these photos taken by Hélène Mejza at the first show in Bourgoin-Jallieu.

Ben Sharpa & Pure Solid feature on JFX Bits #5

JFX Bits #5

After releasing and touring their ‘4th Density Light Show‘ (4DLS) project, Ben Sharpa and Pure Solid once again collaborate on an electro-bass hip hop track featuring Ben’s sister, Tebz, which has come out today on JFX Bits #5.

French independent label, Jarring Effects, have been putting out their ‘JFX Bits’ compilations for 5 years now. They feature a wide array of hip hop, dubstep and electronic productions by some of their favourite artists. Available as an exclusively digital download, the ‘Bits’ concept was brought about to help uncover and expose artists whose work often goes under the mainstream radar and therefore doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

JFX Bits is always free to download, but that is not a reflection of the quality of the music, or the work that has gone into it. 30 artists, 2 art directors, a graphic designer and a sound engineer worked for several months to realise this project.

You are welcome to download the project for free, or you can make a donation if you wish. You can also increase your involvement by sharing the download link with your network of friends and family.

>>> JFX BITS #5 DOWNLOAD PAGE <<<

Please note: the page is in French. To download, click the green button that says, ‘TELECHARGER LA JFX BITS #5′. To donate money, click the yellow button that says, ‘Faire un don’.

New: Izulu Lelam by Driemanskap | Video

October 28, 2012 Free MP3, Music, Video No Comments

On Friday, SABC1′s hit music show, Live Amp, hosted the exclusive world premiere of the first video from Driemanskap’s long-awaited second album, ‘Hlala Nam’.

‘Izulu Lelam’ is an epic track with production by Mo Fire Music producer, Khosh, featuring traditional South African choral vocals on the hook and vivid, heart-wrenching lyrics by Driemanskap.

‘Izulu Lelam’, which, translated from isiXhosa, means ‘heaven is mine’, is a song of hope dedicated to anyone going through tough times in life. The message of the song is that one day everyone will be free from the chains of hardship because heaven is a place that doesn’t discriminate between rich or poor, black or white.

The video was directed by Ari Kruger from Sketchbook Studios and features Vincent Ntunja as the wounded warrior. Check out the video, download the track and hit us up in the comments to let us know what you think…

Check out behind the scenes photos from the video shoot.
