Represent Review: Road to V Launch party

Short, and oh so sweet, that’s the tone that was set at the launch party for the first ever Road to V festival thats taking place in December in South Africa. We’re hoping the heat may still be turned up artist-wise, ‘coz ever since Snoop stood us up at his Joburg concert, we’ve been sulking. He’s cool, but he’s come and gone and we think there’s fresher, edgier artists than Snoop and Maroon 5 for a brand like V. Anyway, let’s see what happens, we’re sure the party will rock either way, as every summer party does. They’re looking for South African bands for the mix – our team Reuben ‘The Matrix’ Malema tells us what you need to do to enter below, as well as what went down at the launch, and photographer Nkateko Siweya shares a photostory of the party with us here : Wednesday night, Melville – Johannesburg. The Brits are here in full force! Well, that’s my view of Sir Richard Branson’s Empire: The Virgin Group. In this case a division of it which resides in leafy Sandton called: Virgin Mobile. This year the Virgin conquest has its eyes firmly set on ZA. A kick-butt and cash flush team made up of Sony Ericsson, Edgars Music Series, MTV and of course, Virgin Mobile will be granting a selected few South African bands (music groups) a chance to share a huge blingin’ stage with Snoop Dogg at the (already UK and USA staged as V Festival) Road to V World Music Concert  in Johannesburg on 15th December 2008. The Catch The prospective band/s must upload an MP3 of their well made track on the Virgin mobile website  for the scrutiny of the good people at Virgin. Yes, it’s that easy and yes it’s that difficult  too, because chances are you may be amongst the selected few and chances are you might not make it at all – but then again if you do not try you may never know, right? So, go right ahead and be a good sport! Take the chance! And what a chance… The biggest prize of all is a guaranteed opportunity to perform at a sequel of the event with some of the world’s greatest musicians in the United Kingdom and the United States of America in 2009. This thrilling opportunity for South African bands to crack the extremely competitive international market was announced by Nicholas Maweni – Head of Corporate Affairs at Virgin Mobile South Africa on the night. A lot of nice to know stuff was also shared, we were blessed with good music from Jozi, KoldProduk, Cassette, Zebra &...

Sharpile PartyPeople for reminding us ’bout Ernie

You may wonder if we have some kind of promotional deal with PartyPeople as we’re always going on about them; actually, we don’t. We just love their formula and their eclectic warm vibes. Plus they keep on lifting their parties up a notch by bringing in more and more of the soulful sounds we live our lives by… (drumroll…) AND… we’d like to thank them even more this month as they remind us (and bring back!) one of our most beloved vocal talents in South Africa… that we had almost forgotten about, Ernie!!! Ok we don’t have to know why she disappeared off our radar post the awesome ‘MoodPhaseFive’ album that got scratched and battered in our cars and cd drives back in the day… we’re just delighted she’s back and encourage all soulseeking Cape Townians to make sure they bless their party night by catching Ernie’s sweet voice at PartyPeople this weekend in Slaapies! Joburgers, check out below, you get to groove with the boys from 340ml the next night in Jozi…not to be missed either, thanks Party People for spoiling us. Watch this space as we review the Jozi party this weekend! Nice fresh twist on the flyers btw. Party People Feat: Ernestine Diane Moodphase5 29th August 2008 So Cape-Town is known to be a mostly bohemian inhabited domain and due to this fact we have been inspired to bring to you an equally bohemian soul by the name of Ernestine Deane, Of Moodphase5.. This artistic spirit will bring to you 45min of rhythmic libretto just waiting to sink into your ears and melt into your psyche. Catch this enticing performance on the 29th of August 2008 at Zula bar, situated on 194 Long Street.

The Return of the B Girl @ 88 on Friday

Fly flyers all over Jozi this weekend, must be that Spring is springing early this year. The Party People crew are already well recovered from the Oppikopi bash and ready to dish it up to you with even more flavour this Friday night with a full  juicy line up of sweet sounds. They tell you as it is: “For those of you who have been living under a rock and have missed all of Bahamadia’s shows, we hope to see you there.” Word! Merely a week after performing to an immensely diverse crowd at Party People Oppikoppi, Northam on the 9th of August, and killing it I might add, the queen Bahamadia, along with her talented Dj, Dj Statik will be getting ready to bring back the real definition of the B Girl to 88 Lounge in Norwood. Sharing the stage with her will be an equally talented South Africa line up by the likes of Party People’s first lady Fifi, Miss GolDigger herself and of course what would a Hip-Hop party be without Dj Kenzhero. Catch all of this at 88 Lounge on the 15th August 2008. Doors open at 8:00pm and the damage to the pocket is R100. 00. Woman’s Month Special:Ladies R80 before 9:30.
