Colorfields – “Decade” Album Launch
Mar 23 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Coloufields

BOOK NOW

COLORFIELDS was conceived in 1997 by drummer- songwriter Ash Read (The Streaks, The Zap Dragons, Strawbelly) as a live electro band seeking to combine elements of the exploding electronic dance music scene with an authentically live rhythmic core. The Colorfields sound draws inspiration from a wide variety of musical genres ranging from the swirling psychedelic rock of classic bands like Pink Floyd to the live dance giants, Faithless; from the edgy sonic trip-hop songs of Massive Attack to traditional and tribal World music beats, while the thought provoking content and social commentary draws much inspiration from anarchist philosophy.

In 1998 Colorfields released their debut album Incidents, which was described by Stephen Sugar Segerman as “one of the most electric and thrilling indie SA albums of the decade”. After a brief and intense period of touring, during which they shared the stage with Hip-hop giants, Cypress Hill, Colorfields disbanded due to Ash’s crippling drug-addiction – that very same addiction being the central theme running through the Incidents album.

Colorfields return in 2017 with a brand new collection of songs and a fresh line-up showcasing their unique sound. Ash Read (drums & vocals) and Kerstie Read (synths, violin & vocals) team up with legendary bass player Schalk Joubert and virtuoso guitarist Ben Badenhorst to deliver a pumping dance-driven set. The forthcoming album Decade, which is to be released on 23 March 2018, is a conceptual work bringing a message of hope and a clarion call to the rebel within for the advancement of personal freedoms, creativity and connection.

They kicked off the 2017/2018 season headlining at the intimate Aftermath festival, and will be appearing on the Main Stage of the Bazique Festival in March 2018.

WONDERrob_1

BOOK NOW

21 years on and WONDERboom are still rocking South Africa! It’s no small feat to be hailed as one of South Africa’s longest-lived and most legendary rock bands, and still going strong.

Although rock is the fundamental sound of the band, WONDERboom have delved into different genres, ranging from funk through to punk and even kwaito.

None can deny that WONDERboom’s biggest strength is their live performance. From festivals to nightclubs, the band just kicks ass – consistently!

WONDERboom have released 8 albums, headlined many major SA festivals, been nominated for 5 SAMA’s (South African Music Awards), and won a Kanna Award & People Crystal Award in 2003 for South Africa’s hottest band. They also won the South African leg of the 2004 Global Battle of the Bands & came SECOND WORLDWIDE!

There can be few South African music fans that aren’t familiar with their hits, like Never Ever, Jafta Rebel, Something Wrong, Green Fever, Africa, Shadows, Charlie, It’s Great to be Alive, Best Side, On The Radio, Karaoke Bar and now, currently on 5fm and campus stations, Ooh La La.

 Cito, Martin Schofield and Wade Williams, the founding members of WONDERboom, have been writing songs and performing together for over 23 years and show no signs of stopping the rocking rollercoaster!

It’s been 7 years and one hell of a rollercoaster ride since the release of their last album, The Automatic Shuffle.

In 2013 they lost their very dear friend and drummer, Garth McLeod, to a freak motorcycle accident.

Then, in a sort of reinvention, they’ve had to get the WONDERmachine up and going again.

Enter Jonathan Bell on drums, and so the process of a new Rock & Roll relationship began…

It’s been a cathartic and introspective journey since, but no one, who has seen them live recently, can deny the sheer magical force that WONDERboom has become again.

Rising Sun, their new album, captures this story in a dynamic way. The title track suggests what they, as a band, feel – a new dawn. A revival of what was once regarded as an electric, live and very stimulating music experience, is here again!

Singles such as Great Escape and Ooh La La have already been embraced with loving arms by fans and the South African music industry alike.

He started this long and illustrious career back in 1972, when as a Tuks student, he played as a solo artist at some of his hometown venues in Pretoria.

A true Rock ‘n Roller at heart, Botha is probably one of the finest guitarists this country has ever produced. His early influences and inspiration was found from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and many of the rock legends of the 1960’s and 1970’s.   In 1984 Botha formed the phenomenal rock outfit Jack Hammer and has kept the name ever since. Jack Hammer has seen many, many members come and go in it’s 33 year history, but it’s founder, the legendary Piet Botha alias the ‘Hammer’, is still rocking steady to this day.   They will be touring the Western Cape in April to release Piet’s new Afrikaans album ‘Die Middernagtrein’.

Native Young 2

BOOK NOW

When asked how he would describe Native Young –  creator of the project Yannick says, “It’s a constantly evolving tapestry of culture, emotion and melody”. Formed in the garage of a Gugulethu marimba maker in 2014 – this brotherhood is blurring lines and breaking cultural barriers through their own distinct  brand of ‘Kasi pop’.

With members stretching from Khayelitsha to Spain – Native Young is an independent collective hosting a menagerie of rotating talent and eclectic taste. Their music itself is focused on returning to the grass roots of pop, raw African rhythm and simple storytelling. It’s this simplicity that has provided the group with a vehicle for deeper cultural exploration both musically and spiritually. Often fusing English, Xhosa, Sotho and Zulu lyrics in sweeping anthemic choral arrangements – Native Young certainly is an ode to African heroes like Umoja, Super Rail Band and Marumo – along with a melodic nod to western contemporaries like the Beatles. 

June 2016 saw the release of Native Young’s debut LP ‘Kings’ – a unique blend of acoustic African sound mixed with electronic sensibilities and listed as one of the top 20 South African albums of 2017 by indie music blog Texx and The City. The group has also held successful performances at prestigious international festivals like Lake of Stars in Malawi, Les Escales in France and an opening slot at Fusion festival Germany. 

As for the future, the collective will be focused on touring both locally and internationally as well as writing tracks for their next full length album, set to be a conceptual journey into the heritage of African disco and traditional Mbaqanga. Music is that ephemeral expression that seems to connect us all and It’s this sentiment that boldly shines in the raw and colourful tale of Native Young.

The album, which was released worldwide on 14 July 2014, peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Album Chart on the day of its release.

MORE ABOUT MONARK

Home to some of South Africa’s most renowned legendary bands, Potchefstroom delivered their latest offering to the South African music scene – Monark – in May 2013 when the four piece pop rock band emerged with their first single, Smiling.

The band was formed when producer Ewald Jansen van Rensburg teamed up with friend and vocalist, Eugene Coetzer. For a couple of years they patiently developed and worked towards finding the specific sound they were after. Once they had discovered it, they gathered together the musicians that were needed to grow and perform the music, with Deon de Klerk joining the band on bass guitar and Graeme Wuth on drums. The band officially formed in August 2012, intent on making popular, yet tastefully engineered music with a cinematic feel.Â

With Eugenes unmistakably unique voice and soaring falsetto, Smiling immediately gained mainstream attention and popularity on major radio stations throughout South Africa. It peaked at No. 3 on 5FM Top 40 Chart and was a Top 20 hit on Highveld and KFM. The video also reached No. 1 on MKs Top 10 Chart.

December 2013 saw the release of Monarks second single and music video, entitled Build It Up. The single soon followed in the footsteps of Smiling success and charted on radio nationwide. It reached the Top 5 on 5FM’s Top 40 Chart, No. 2 on East Coast Radio and became the bands first No. 1 single, topping the Jacaranda FM Top 20 Chart, KFM and Highveldâs Kia Take 40 SA Chart as well as reaching No. 1 on Algoa FM.The bandS follow up songs – Something and You Make also did well through the end of 2014 into 2015, with a new singLe called Hush being released half way through last year to massive success across all radio stations, achieving Top 5 status in charts across the country and becoming a firm favorite at the live shows.

Monark achieved industry recognition winning the MK 2014 Award for Best Newcomer, along with being chosen as one of the selections in iTunes exclusive New Artist in 2014™ campaign. At the 2015 SAMA™s (South African Music Awards), the band were nominated for Best Pop Album, as well as Record of the Year, along with a nomination for Ewald Jansen van Rensburg for Best Producer for the NEGATIVES album.  In 2016, the band released a deluxe edition of their debut album which includes their latest singles Hush and the songs currently charting on SA airwaves, Falling and Soldier, as well as a couple of other new tracks and remixes.

Their energetic and polished live performances have been incredibly well received by their fans, with Monark performing on some of the top stages in the country – including Rocking The Daisies, Durban Day, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Parklife, 94.7 Joburg Day, KFM 94.5’s KDAY, Splashy Fen, KKNK, Durban Botanical Gardens, supporting international superstars Bastille at Emmarentia Dam in JHB, to name but a few, as well as live performances on top rated TV shows The Voice, Strictly Come Dancing, and at the 2016 South African Music Awards.
