06 April 9PM to 4AM: AND CLUB | CLUB NIGHT

Feat. EGYPTIAN LOVER AND THE HACKER

Johannesburg’s beloved no-nonsense dance music club, will host two true electronic music pioneers, Egyptian Lover and The Hacker. A member of Uncle Jamm’s Army, Egyptian Lover from the US helped crafts the blue-print for both West-Coast hip-hop and electro in the 80s and 90s, while the Hacker from France helped shape the sound of electro and techno in the 2000s and its subsequent breakthrough into the mainstream.

06 April 6PM to 2AM: GREAT DANE | CLUB NIGHT

Feat. ROUGE, MOOZLIE, K-$, 2LEESTARK, PATTY MONROE AND MORE

With so much throwback and reference to the past, Friday’s focus at two of the city’s busiest venues, will be on the millennial artists shaping the sounds and attitudes of today’s clubbing experience. From gender-binary challenging champions such as Angel-Ho and K-$, to Gqom pioneers DJ Lag and the Audioboyz to SA hip-hop emcees Moozlie and Rouge to Future Beats pioneers, Sean Munnick and Daev Martian, this is the sound of South Africa’s Generation Z getting down.

06 April 5PM: AND CLUB

A CONVERSATION WITH TROMPIES

Trompies helped define the crucial sound that was Kwaito in the 90s, in sound, aesthetic and cultural relevance. In this conversation moderated by music journalist Helen Herimbi, they will talk about the rise of SA’s beloved musical movement, in the post 94 election haze to the 2000s and how their music balanced celebration alongside social commentary.

06 April 7PM: AND CLUB

A CONVERSATION WITH EGYPTIAN LOVER

Egyptian Lover is a legend in certain circles but a mystery to most, an artist who was in deep with most of the west coast hip hop scene before the gangsta sound came along. Born Greg Broussard, Egyptian Lover was a rapper, DJ, and producer who was hugely influenced by the New York electro scene, as well as by the electro-funk of Zapp.

06 April 7PM to 2AM: REPUBLIC OF 94 | WAAR WAS JY?

Feat. TROMPIES, GLEN LEWIS, OSKIDO, DJ TIRA AND KID X

Kwaito’s history goes back to the mid-tempo Chicago house sounds of Glen Lewis, the mixture of house, hip-hop and pantsula culture of TKZEE through to the 125bpm Afro-House sounds of Oskido and Kalawa Jazmee to the modern hip-hop excursions of Kid X and Cashtime Record’s “New Age Kwaito”. We trace and celebrate South Africa’s biggest modern music genre, its legacy and its continuing presence.

 

 

07 April 5PM to 2AM: FOX JUNCTION | GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES

Feat. Skepta, 340million, Shekhinah, Langa Mavuso, Gina Jeanz, Kid Fonque, Gerd Janson, DJ Stingray and more.

08 April 4PM to 2AM: ZONE 6 | Home Grown

Feat. Sjava, Sho Madjozi, AKA, RudeBoyz, Distruction Boyz, Da Capo and Jullian Gomes

A night in honour of artists pioneering sounds distinct to South Africa, rooted in tradition and elevated through millennial culture. From Sjava’s hip-Hop / Maskandi creations alongside Sho Madjozi’s balance of Tsonga and Turnup to the raw, complex rhythms and shapes of Gqom to the distinct tone and soul of local deep house – modern and accessible and at the same time deeply-rooted in their heritage and the traditional music genres they grew up with.
