Yes, the first Edgars Music Series of the year has a huge and crackling line-up designed to chase away the New Year blues and put you back in the party mood! It is still summer after all, and there are plenty of excuses for a good time, so get your New Year off to a typical party style start with the Edgars Music Series at the Bassline. Come on down on the 2nd of February and see HHP, Magesh and the Blk Jks in action. Joining these acts on stage will be two brand new emerging artists in the form of Character and Black Rose. As usual, The Fashion Police will be prowling the venue, checking out the gents and the ladies, looking for that special look that deserves rewarding. They will be deciding who gets to win special prizes from Sloggi and showing off the best dressed to the crowd!  So make sure you are dressed to impress, when you head to The Bassline on 02 February 2007! Dineo Ranaka of Y FM will be the MC and host for the night, and the Y Fm crew will be there in force as usual, so get there early and book your space for the highlight of the Jozi party scene, the Edgars Music Series!

Represent DIARY: MY FIVE SENSES OF JOZI CITY

As you all know the city of Johannesburg is alive and kicking, as developers continue to finish off their buildings and plans, more and more working people are moving into the heart of the city to live in slick accommodation. Represent has sent one of it’s writers, Sisiwami, to give living in the inner city a bash, over the next few weeks and months, she will be documenting her stay in th… e inner city of Johannesburg. Scroll down for updates. See our Flickr pics here. October 2006 Do you know that at night you can hear the sea in Joburg city? It rocks and sways you as if your body were adrift on an ocean, quietly gliding you through midnight and gently into dawn. You can only hear it once the phuza-face stragglers have settled down to a restless sleep in a doorway, once the garbage collection trucks have stopped clunking and the glow of the office blocks fades into the backdrop of a pulsating night. It’s the late-night soothing sound of the united rhythms of city air conditioners and generators, colluding to form a constant hum and drone that washes over your thoughts as you concede to the comfort of Johannesburg blackness. And yet all too soon it is gone. Replaced with the daily discord of a teenage city coming to life, coming into itself, finding its feet for another grueling day.

It was an all-embracing sensual seduction, her curves, her lines, her shape, her strength constantly captivating my eye – I found myself looking up, up and away, looking here, there and everywhere where she reigns and moves – her visual superiority holding court over the province, the nation, the continent. Fumbling and humbled, I tried to capture her light, her colour and her changing moods, but no picture nor words can do her presence justice. A cold lift door, a warm spring wood, hot summer glass, smooth cool steel, rugged high walls, soft new carpet, slippery wide screed – her textures call out for your hands to stroke, to feel, to hold onto. Layers of life, layers...
