Media / New Age Kwaito? or just SA Hip-Pop ?
« on: December 02, 2014, 02:11:51 PM »
Hey AGians, I created an article on my take on this "New Age Kwaito"
craze. Would you say it's innovative or just a rip off? Check it out!!:

 Gavlyn - What I do

Last week, someone at the Univ. of Wits heard my Kwaito mix and asked my permission to broadcast it on air. I gave them the ok and after requesting feedback, they want to interview me on the "Koolerbox show"!! This was the e-mail they sent on Thursday:

Yes I did, all the Kwaito-heads were praising the way you incorporated the cla**ics. I have read your article and you raised some interesting points.t.

Can you please send me your e-mail address so that I can get you in contact with the producer of the show. Perhaps arrange an phone-call interview for the next show.

Otherwise you can listen to the station on www.vowfm.co.za, the show is on Saturdays at 16H00, (UTC/GMT +2 hours). It's usually presented by DJ @Large who is the BIGGEST kwaito fan.

Thanks again for the mix :)[ /i]


 Keep your eyes on this space as I hope that this interview happens today, if not next week!!! 8)

Over the past few weeks, and a little after making the Kwaito mix, I decided to make a Mid Tempo House mix using one of my favorite House genres, UK Garage. Not the UKG with the merk/slew/grime stuff that we know today (which has been dead since 2008), but the old stuff from the 90s that brought Garage from it's soulful US roots to UK dance floor anthems. I was influenced by the old Mid-Tempo House mixes that SA House DJs like Oskido, DJ Christos, Glenn Lewis and plenty of others did when they slowed US House tunes to a "mid tempo" beat, making it suitable for African audiences during the early '90s. This method not only developed Kwaito but also was the birth of South African House music!

Garage/House left the US in the '90s and went over the pond.  In the UK, they sped the beat; in South Africa, they slowed it down. This mix brings the two styles together. Enjoy!:

Politics / Mugabe vs. Jamaicans-Oh the deception!
« on: September 30, 2012, 10:30:54 PM »
I remember reading this 2 weeks ago, its a shame that 32 years ago Bob Marley, a spokesman as well as legendary Reggae singer of the Rastafarian movement went to perform in Zimbabwe to celebrate their independence, and 32 years later, Robert Mugabe disses not only Rastas, but Jamaicans as a whole.  This is on some Afro-hypocracy (Pot callin kettle black) type shit.

Jamaicans have been stereotyped as a bunches of lazy pot smoking Rastas, drunk and sex crazed partiers, Yardie gangsters (Rudebwoys), or conservative wannabes of the British (due to the colonial history, this stereotype is geared to those who look up to the British comonwelth). Where I live there is a big Caribbean community where I could see Jamaicans that would fit but then again, Mugabe would be shitting himself because some Jamaicans and Jamericans I know wouldn't fit this image.  It's sad that he can support Quadaffi (dictator budy) but label Afrodecendents as immoral. Here's the report:

Politics / Juggalos (ICP fans) considered as a Gang by the FBI?
« on: September 09, 2012, 06:16:10 PM »
Very interesting stuff here. As very few of us on here are familiar with the Insane Clown Posse, America's
Number 1 Horrocore Hip-Hop duo, here's a little summary of the speech in the video;

ICP fans (Juggalos) have now been considered a gang by the FBI (government investigation force) which has rased awareness lately. I remember just a decade ago, they were considered a gang in a few states and regions (Western Pennsylvania, Utah, Oregon, Virginia, and a few others). When someone refers to them as a gang, it doesn't seem serious at first but when I think of some of the concerts I've been to, I
start to see why people would identify them as such (even though that's not the case with some). This
video has opened alot of questions and theories. What's your opinions?:

I would try to kill the bish that put me in the slammer for all those years knowing damn well
she was lying!!!  This guy went through 6 years of being falsely accused and would've had
a shot of playing in the NFL (which might happen now). Besides the zombie mess in the news,
I followed this:
