Apologies to all the winners for Ballentines ballsup @ Bassline

If you were a ‘winner’ and went to the Bassline on Saturday night only to find there was no list and your name was nowhere to be found, firstly, we’d like to apologise sincerely for this bad experience. Secondly, we’d like you to know that this had very little to do with Represent and everything to do with the venue, Bassline, and the organiser Andrew, who was managing our ticket giveaway. After generously piling on the free tickets for our readers, and us providing all info timeously, they had promised to have everyone’s names at the door on the list on time – a very simple thing to do – but it turns out they couldn’t be bothered. We are busy compiling a list of ‘winners’ experiences that night as well as finding out how they will compensate you, so please do get in touch on editor@represent.co.za, we have the list of everyone that won.  It’s a sad day when people are treated so badly, without respect and we apologise once again, as you know, we do this all for the love and support of SA music, but we’re beginning to wonder if it’s worth it. Sharpile for your support as always. Editorista. We’ve got a bunch of tickets to give-away to this week’s Ballantines Finest Jazz “Leave an Impression” event – It’s happening live at the Bassline in Newtown on Saturday 2nd May 2009 and will feature the brilliant DON LAKA and the sultry SAMA winning SIMPHIWE DANA. If you’d like to win a pair, simply email Editorista on editor@represent.co.za with your name, your partners name, your cell numbers and the answer to this question: at which famous Johannesburg Jazz venue will the Ballentine’s Finest Jazz event take place this weekend?  More details below or click on the flyer for more: Ballantine’s has been presenting some top South African jazz artist at various Newtown venues over the past year and is extremely proud to present two headline acts at arguably the home of South African Jazz on Saturday 02 May, when Don Laka and Simphiwe Dana play at the Ballantine’s Finest Jazz event at Bassline – this event is sure to LEAVE AN IMPRESSION and we are extremely proud to be the headline sponsors. The Ballantines Finest Jazz at the Bassline is a jazz event to look forward to reminiscent of the high quality jazz concerts from the Bassline Jazz Club in Melville days! Headline for the evening is the inimitable Don Laka performing his signature “Kwaai Jazz” with Jazz Diva supreme Simphiwe Dana taking on the support act slot. Don Laka after 35 years in the music...

Siyanemukela (welcome in siSwati) to the third Swaziland Bushfire Festival due to take place on the 31st July and 1st and 2nd of August this year in the beautiful mountainous kingdom of Swaziland. If you love a truly African rooted vibe, in a sublime setting (don’t forget we’ve been going on about House on Fire for years now – best venue in Africa) with the biggest party animals on earth (you know who you are) then make sure to pack up the kids and friends and get to the gentle Malkerns Valley. We believe they’re also looking for artists so get in touch and rock the valley of heaven. It’s only 3.5 hours drive from Jozi… GO GO GO.

Introducing Vula Malinga

We recently stumbled across the soulful vocalist Vula Malinga who’s stirring up some musical waves in the UK after her success recording with Basement Jaxx. She’s an East London girl, as in Hackney luv, London, not the Eastern Cape, but born to South African parents in the States… Kinda pop meets RnB with the potential to do something different, she’s got some serious range on her- with her oodles of talent, we’re hoping she heads for an original sound. We’re hustling an interview with her soon, watch this space. Bit of PR on Vula – you can catch her on Facebook here : If you don’t already know about Miss Vula Malinga, chances are you’ve seen her everywhere and just didn’t realise. With an impressive catalog of work already under her belt with collaborations with UK heavyhitters such as Basement Jaxx and MJ Cole, she has gained respect in the UK music scene as one of the most gifted singer/songwriters on the scene and now after a sell out tour supporting Sam Sparro, Vula has dropped her long awaited E.P. “If You Want It” released under her own label “DivaGeek Records”.  With a new single due out early 2009, Keep your ear to the streets…. Vula Malinga Live on Radio –...
