‘Cape Town Effects’ European tour a massive success

CTFX at Marsatac

We just got back from 2 months on tour in Europe with the ‘Cape Town Effects’ project. In that time we did more than 20 shows as well as many Q&A sessions and workshops at schools and community centres.

‘Cape Town Effects’ is a collaboration between Pioneer Unit and Jarring Effects. The project featured Jaak, El Nino (Driemanskap), Konfab, Tebz (Ben Sharpa’s sister), Ben Sharpa and Redondo (Driemanskap). Production was handled by Led Piperz (France), Dplanet and Big Space. spo0ky handled the visuals for the live show and we toured with Chris (sound engineer) and FX (light technician).

The project was a celebration of Jarring Effects’ 10 years working with South African musicians. It consisted of an album, a tour, a photo exhibition and a documentary called, ‘Mother City Blues’. The project was released as a double CD (containing the documentary) and a double vinyl – both of which are available at our online shop.

We worked incredibly hard to put on great shows where every aspect – from performance, to lighting and visuals, to the sound itself – was given a huge amount of care and attention. It really paid off as the response from crowds was fantastic. It’s amazing to see that language is not a barrier when it comes to people feeling the energy and emotion of the music and performance.

One of the most memorable nights was our final show at Riddim Collision festival in Lyon. It was our ‘home crowd’ as Jarring Effects is based in Lyon. At the end of the show we got the whole JFX family on stage to celebrate all the hard work everyone had put in. Good times!…

Hopefully we’ll be taking the show back to Europe again in June / July for the European summer festival season.

Check out a whole bunch of behind the scenes photos, that give you a real taste of life on tour, on the Cape Town Effect tumblr.

Finally, we’d like to thank everyone at Jarring Effects who worked so hard to realise this project. Big love to Monsieur Mo, Céline, Mel, JB, Vincent, Perrine, Nico, Sylvain, Guillaume, Léa and Emy.

Driemanskap Swedish Tour Interview | Video

We caught up with Driemanskap before they set out for their first international tour at the end of the month. The four man crew will be heading to Sweden as part of the ‘Kwaai’ project, which features some of Sweden and South Africa’s finest hip hop artists.

The first single from the project, ‘Badman’, was released a few weeks ago and the video has already had over 50,000 views on Youtube. The video also causes chaos on Twitter when it was premiered on SABC’s flagship music show, Live Amp, last Friday.

Check out what El Nino, Dla, Ma-B and Redondo had to say…

If you haven’t seen the ‘Badman’ video, check it out here…
