Known for its freestyle recombination of influences which revolve around older production styles and the songwriting focus of disco, new-wave/synth-pop and R&B, Metro Area has injected much needed doses of funk and sensuality, mood and space back into the loop-based and seldom-subtle world of underground dance. Their debut album elicited superlative responses from The New York Times to The Onion, from web-logs to the Wire. Metro Area won a place among Rolling Stone’s “Top 50 Albums of 2002”, a rock and rap-dominated list for which most club/dance projects are not even considered. Further accolades include BBC/Radio 1’s “Dance Album of the Year” and a “Best New Artist” prize at the 2003 DanceStar/American Dance Awards.  www.myspace.com/darshanjesrani Tumi featuring Papercutts Tumi’s pen carves rhythmically lyrical dreamscapes out of brutal realities. Each of his pieces unfold like a musical and spiritual journey through imagery as rich as the poets talent. His creativity speaks with dedication to the sincerity that the young artist lives by- this Poet / emcee, philosopher, dreamer, storyteller uses his words to challenge ego and a history of tragedy and the complex identity struggles facing this African man of the Hip-Hop generation in a post-apartheid South Africa. Tumi is the lead vocalist of Tumi and the Volume. The bands live debut album “At the Bassline’ received three South African Music Award nominations.  The band has wowed audiences all over the country, impressed fellow musicians Black Eyed Peas (U.S.A), Blackalicious (U.S.A), Positive Black Souls (Senegal), Relax (the Netherlands) and has been frequent invitees to world-class music festivals. Tumi has just released a solo album without the band and alongside Johannesburg’s turntable legend “Papercutts” is re-introducing the traditional idea of a “mc and a dj” to his...

Lilo Productions Presents, UNSOUND SYSTEM featuring the UK’s largest ambassador of underground dance grooves, PHAT PHIL COOPER, alongside Cape Town’s don, PIERRE with your regular Fuel representatives K Kar Kommandos. This is taking place this Saturday the 26th and it’s go…nna be a blast! The gig is entitled ‘SUMO’ and it kicks off at 20:30 for MAHALA! Don’t you just dig the sound of that! There are also Free CD Giveaways on the night so we don’t see why you should miss out. Fuel Cafe is on the corner of Carr & Quinn Street in Newtown – come be a part of the world of wonder that exists over the Nelson Mandela bridge! ******************************************* While Fuel cafe has been around for a while, we’re really loving it at the moment… if we’re a little slow on this Monday morning that’s probably because we were jolling there till all hours on Saturday. Great venue. In the city. Good news is that slightly underground and interestingly unique DJ’s Damian and Greg from K Kar Kommandos are resident at Fuel Cafe with their “Unsound system” nights from this first Saturday in August. Get down! LILO present Unsound System @ Fuel Cafe LILO, the organisers who brought you countless parties par excellence, is turning Saturday nights at Fuel Cafe into an evening of electronic euphoria. With eclectro statesmen K Kar Kommandos on weekly duty from August, 08:30 to 02:00, expect a night of machine made madness. With a policy that always puts music first LILO has staked a claim as Jozi’s premier party organiser, introducing the city to the fine sounds of, amongst others, Charles Webster, Jeff K, Inland Knights, Rob Mello, Ralph Lawson, Alex Moran, Murray Richardson, Dave Togher and many more. Now they’re teaming up with musical mash-men K Kar Kar Kommandos to take Fuel Cafý hostage for weekly doses of beats that span a universe of the weird and the wonderful. Damian and Greg are K Kar Kommandos, the guys who took it back to basics with sporadic free parties at Hotel Sunningdales. Here they entertained the increasingly packed venue with a wobbly fusion of out-house, punk funk, synth-pop, minimal glitch, new acid and eclectic electro. Expect this and more when they bring their Unsound System to Fuel Cafe. With an increasing demand for more intimate spaces, Fuel Cafe is the perfect place for these Saturday night jaunts. A combination of the finest underground sounds, good food and an inviting space: who could ask for more? Unsound System at Fuel every Saturday from August – a reason to rock. Fuel...
