Since​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​debut​ ​album,​ ​​The Hanging Gardens of Beatenberg, Beatenberg​ ​has​ ​upended​ ​entrenched​ ​ideas​ ​of​ ​what​ ​constitutes​ ​South​ ​African music​ ​–​ ​and,​ ​in​ ​the​ ​process,​ ​has​ ​delivered​ ​a​ ​resolutely​ ​international​ ​sound​ ​that subverts​ ​​and effortlessly​ ​owns​ ​mainstream​ ​pop.

Now​ ​the​ ​Cape​ ​Town-based​ ​three​ ​piece​ ​of​ ​Matthew​ ​Field​ ​(vocals​ ​and​ ​guitar), Robin​ ​Brink​ ​(drums)​ ​and​ ​Ross​ ​Dorkin​ ​(bass)​ ​is​ ​poised​ ​for​ ​a​ ​global​ ​breakthrough with​ ​a​ ​new​ ​album​ ​set​ ​for​ ​release​ ​in​ ​2018.​ ​Currently​ ​being​ ​recorded​ ​in​ ​London Beatenberg’s​ ​second​ ​album​ ​will​ ​be​ ​released​ ​through​ ​Island​ ​Records​ ​following the​ ​band’s​ ​signing​ ​to​ ​the​ ​label​ ​earlier​ ​this​ ​year.
Regarded​ ​as​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world’s​ ​most​ ​artistically​ ​diverse​ ​recording​ ​homes, Beatenberg​ ​is​ ​a​ ​natural​ ​fit​ ​for​ ​Island’s​ ​artist​ ​roster.​ ​Over​ ​the​ ​13-songs​ ​on​ ​​The Hanging

​ Gardens  of Beatenberg,​ ​the​ ​band​ ​revealed​ ​its​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​create​ ​sublimely crafted​ ​pop​ ​that’s​ ​as​ ​rooted​ ​in​ ​indigenous​ ​South​ ​African​ ​styles​ ​as​ ​other​ ​musical influences​ ​(including​ ​reggae,​ ​jazz​ ​and​ ​classical).

With​ ​such​ ​a​ ​singular​ ​sound,​ ​it​ ​was​ ​no​ ​surprise​ ​that​ ​the​ ​band​ ​turned​ ​up​ ​in collaboration​ ​with​ ​Mumford​ ​&​ ​Sons​ ​on​ ​their​ ​2016​ ​​Johannesburg

​​ EP.
“We​ ​came​ ​across​ ​Beatenberg​ ​and​ ​immediately,​ ​unanimously,​ ​liked​ ​it,”​ ​said​ ​Ben Lovett​ ​of​ ​the​ ​decision​ ​to​ ​work​ ​with​ ​Field,​ ​Dorkin​ ​and​ ​Brink.​ ​“In​ ​some​ ​ways​ ​I guess​ ​it​ ​felt​ ​familiar,​ ​the​ ​song​ ​structure,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​instrumentation​ ​and​ ​the​ ​fact they’re​ ​singing​ ​in​ ​English.​ ​But​ ​there​ ​was​ ​also​ ​something​ ​unique​ ​and​ ​foreign​ ​to​ ​it that​ ​attracted​ ​us​ ​to​ ​the​ ​music.”​ ​Marcus​ ​Mumford​ ​described​ ​the​ ​band​ ​as​ ​“serious, serious​ ​musicians”.​ ​“Robin​ ​is​ ​one​ ​of​ ​those​ ​drummers​ ​who’s​ ​just​ ​like​ ​a​ ​wound-up toy,​ ​he’s​ ​metronomic​ ​and​ ​he’s​ ​got​ ​mad​ ​chops.​ ​Ross​ ​is​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​bass​ ​player​ ​these days​ ​too,​ ​with​ ​his​ ​high​ ​up​ ​fretless​ ​vibe,​ ​and​ ​Matt​ ​is​ ​genuinely​ ​a​ ​virtuoso​ ​guitarist and​ ​a​ ​great​ ​front-man.​ ​Understated​ ​and​ ​way​ ​cooler​ ​than​ ​anyone​ ​else​ ​I​ ​know.​ ​A few​ ​of​ ​us​ ​from​ ​our​ ​band​ ​grew​ ​up​ ​playing​ ​jazz​ ​and​ ​afrobeat​ ​stuff,​ ​so​ ​we​ ​had similar​ ​backgrounds​ ​in​ ​some​ ​musical​ ​respects,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​just​ ​took​ ​to​ ​an​ ​academic level​ ​whereas​ ​we​ ​are​ ​schoolboys​ ​in​ ​comparison.”
Alongside​ ​appearing​ ​on​ ​three​ ​of​ ​​Johannesburg’s​ ​five-tracks,​ ​the​ ​Mumford​ ​&​ ​Son connection​ ​also​ ​saw​ ​Beatenberg​ ​performing​ ​with​ ​the​ ​UK​ ​band​ ​(and co-collaborators​ ​Baaba​ ​Maal​ ​and​ ​The​ ​Very​ ​Best)​ ​

​ Beatenberg became a​ ​showcase​ ​for​ ​the​ ​possibilities​ ​of​ ​pop​ ​music​ ​unconstrained​ ​by​ ​outdated​ ​genre boundaries​ ​and​ ​geography.​ ​Songs​ ​like​ ​“Ithaca”,​ ​“The​ ​Prince​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Hanging Gardens”​ ​and​ ​“Scorpionfish”​ ​deployed​ ​crystalline​ ​melodies​ ​to​ ​guide​ ​listeners!

They will be performing LIVE in Noordhoek on the 16th December! What a treat! Get booking folks!

THE SWEET RESISTANCE & RUBBER DUC

BOOK NOW

Resistance is futile when it comes to these rock n roll romantics. Just know that The Sweet Resistance are set to redefine South African music, blending epic alt-rock with compelling hints of electro-pop to craft melodic, arena worthy anthems. Their debut, Where There Is Hope, overflows with towering guitar hooks, driving percussion, shimmering synths and tender song writing. This brew would suffice for most bands, but The Sweet Resistance also come armed with the powerful voice of lead singer Tash. Her impassioned delivery lights the way through the dramatic song terrain and she will undoubtedly draw you in. Her rare and masterful guitar hooks combined with her intentional story telling is altogether extraordinary.

Live, the band promise to offer a sonic passage to a landscape of hope, determination, grace and inspiration. The songs are rhythmic, melodic anthems, plumbing the depths of life, love, opportunity and release.

The album is available for purchase on ITunes and across multiple world-­‐wide digital download platforms.

Since TSR’s launch, their debut single FEEL hit the number 1 spot on the 5FM Indie Chart and spent over 3 months on the SA Top 30. TSR were included in the stellar SA band line up that supported the long-awaited PIXIES Tour of SA.  Looking at the incredible response from local media, TSR were certainly a highlight of the event, attend by over 16000 festival goers. Bruce Dennill of Participate had this to say about the band: The line-up prior to The Pixies arriving on stage could have held its own anywhere in the world: the Orianthi strut of Natasha Meister and the rest of The Sweet Resistance. The Sweet Resistance were the newest and least known of the outfits on the bill, but are clear future frontrunners, with a big, tight sound driven by Tash’s penetrating vocals and captivating guitar work.

TSR’s follow up single “Captivated” has just been released and is already making waves on local radio nationally. 5FM play listed “Captivated” in March and with its debut on the TOP10@10 POP Charts it went straight to number 1!

Rubber Duc burst onto the SA music scene in March 2014 when their first single hit the number 2 spot on the 5FM and ECR charts! AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT was inspired by the YouTube clip of Sweet Brown that went viral worldwide. The song is a satirical look at living in South Africa today and a humorous take on current issues… All the stuff we simply don’t have time for!

Expect a extraordinary show not to be missed by these two incredible bands!

WATERSHED are no strangers to touring and have been continuously raising the bar in efforts to expand their musical horizons and boundaries for many years now.

Acoustic rock outfit Watershed emerged as one of the most successful South African exports of their generation when the single “Indigo Girl” topped the Ger- man pop charts. Formed in Johannesburg in 1998, Watershed was the vehicle of singer/songwriter Craig Warren Hinds, a former high school English and history major.

The band itself is structured around singer, songwriter and instrumentalist Craig Hinds who has always felt he is a man with a positive message to convey and after teaching high school for two years while playing his own material out in smaller venues Craig decided to take the opportunity to form a band and make his voice and songs heard across the world.

Watershed are 15 years in the making and nowhere near ready to stop.

Prime Circle are no strangers to touring and have been continuously raising the bar in efforts to expand their musical horizons and boundaries for many years now, the up coming three piece “STRIPPED” tour is no exception. Ross, Dale and Neil will be embarking on a national tour of difference they say, as the music is stripped down to its bare minimum getting to the root of the songs and their stories.

The reason for only having the three members and not the usual five is so that the band can get to play more intimate venues, fans will get to see the whites of their eyes as they lay down the music that has been apart of so many people’s lives and experiences.

This is definitely one to watch.

The sun is rising for Early Hours… South Africa’s youngest rising stars.

The band emerged out of the collective dream of three youngsters: Jake Bennett, Adam Rothschild and Benson Joubert. A dream to put their hearts into pop music, and share it with all the world.

The band’s vibrant and spirited sound has been described as a unique blend of britpop and afrorock. They do not care what time of night or day, when inspiration strikes, they will see it through until the Early Hours.

The band rapidly rose to national prominence after winning Converse’s Get Out Of The Garage competition in 2014. International acclaim soon followed as they became the first South African artist to reach one million streams on a single track on SoundCloud. The band’s 2017 single “Smells Like Summer” reached #1 on the Indie Rock Chart on the popular music streaming platform. In addition to the above, their debut EP [released independently] has garnered over 5 million streams online.

The “First Light” EP was written entirely by Bennett (lyrics) and Rothschild (music) and recorded at the tender ages of 19 with award-winning producer, Brendyn Rossouw. The tracks were then mixed in Australia by Jean-Paul Fung [Last Dinosaurs] and mastered by Grammy award winner, Joe LaPorta.

One can see that this cross-continental sensation have their sights set on reaching fans across the globe.

Jon 1

BOOK NOW

Having gigged extensively locally and internationally as part of various bands, 2012 saw Jon Shaban launch his solo career. Armed with just his voice and his guitar, he takes to the stage to deliver songs which have been described as honest and easy to relate to. The performance is raw and there’s no holding back on the sharing of extremely personal experiences, the kind we’ve all been t haven’t necessarily processed in the way Jon does. “It’s exhausting sharing my life with a room full of total strangers” says Jon. “But it’s the feeling of walking off stage after such an intimate creative release and feeling like a new person which makes it worth it.”

Since 2012, Jon has achieved a lot in South Africa having performed at most of the country’s top festivals as either himself or with his band, The Shabs. He has graced the stage at Rocking the Daisies, Oppikoppi, Splashy Fen, White Mountain Folk Festival and Mieliepop, where they were reviewed as one of the top bands of the festival.

Jon has also toured with and opened for various international artists such as Frank Turner, Stelth Ulvang (The Lumineers) and Brett Newski.

In 2015, Jon launched his first solo album aptly entitled ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’ in conjunction with quitting his job and committing to music full time.

2016 saw Jon and his band, The Shabs, launch their debut album, ‘Folk is Dead’ and after touring it around South Africa for a full month in March, Jon headed to Europe where he played over 40 shows solo and 25 with The Shabs in 9 different countries around Europe including slots at prestigious alternative music festivals, the biggest being ‘Mighty Sounds’ in Tabor, Czech Republic where they were again reviewed as one of the top bands of the festival.
On their return they got right back into the local swing of things and were invited to play ‘FORR Festival’ in Mozambique and ‘Smoking Dragon’ on New Year’s Eve where they collaborated again with Stelth Ulvang.

Currently Jon is in studio working on his 2nd full length solo album which will be released in the 1st half of 2018.

medicine boy

BOOK NOW

Medicine Boy is a Dream Noise duo from Cape Town, South Africa.

 

“Majestic tones of guitar cut across vast plains of roaring silence. With multiplied intensity they return from there & shake something vulnerable in my soul. Stark drums measure time for the enchantment of two voices, deeply concentrated, painfully beautiful and eerie. Just like old rituals.” – Alternativemusicblog.org

 

Most drawn to the fine line between the calm & chaotic – inhabited by the likes of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Spiritualized – Lucy Kruger & Andre Leo have conjured a sound from deep within the reverb tank, where lonesome lullabies and screeching strings find comfort in one another.  Their debut album ‘Kinda Like Electricity’, was released in August 2016 and is a natural collection of influences – from soaring Psychedelia & fuzzed-out Noise to primal Blues rhythms & Country/Folk balladeering, all baptized in reverb.

 

‘Medicine Boy are somehow able to sound like all of their influences at once—and yet also, simply, like themselves; forging a sound that is faithful to their mentors but, impressively, swaggers up to meet them eye-to-eye, chest out, and chin forward.

Kinda Like Electricity, recorded and mixed by Dave Langeman, is more than just an admirable album put out by a promising South African band. It is, to my ears, a record of the moment that one of this country’s brightest acts discovered their identity.

– David Cornwell, Don’t Party.

 

Returning from their second European tour at the end of last year, the duo have begun recording their second full length album. For their performance at Café’ Roux CPT they will be doing a stripped down set with songs from both their releases as well as debuting a couple of new ones.

Lucy & Andre will be joined by Werner von Waltsleben on drums & Hezron Chetty on violin.

Manouche’s 21st Century take on traditional Gypsy Jazz blends together sounds and influences from genres like the Tango, Waltz, Folk, R&B, Hip Hop and Electro Swing bringing audiences of all ages an original, fresh and unique sound.

Being both graduates of the composition and jazz programs at the University of Cape Town, Bernard Kotze and Sarah Blake form the basis in terms of rhythm, groove and writing original material. Diana Nielle adds to the gypsy fire with her intricate melodic attacks and finally Anneli Kamfer brings the vocal power with her incredible voice.

Sarah, our double bassist has an obsession with baking. She can whip up a cake for you in 10 minutes flat. She also has a knack for adventure sports, when we were on tour in Knysna she jumped off a bridge. Bernard, our guitarist and most handsome man in the band, is a novice at photography and videography – he also doubles up as the whole bands’ Work Husband. Our violinist, Diana, is super woman – she owns her own business and she is also unexpectedly fierce – her friendly smile is just a cover up. The golden voice, Anneli, never stops smiling. Never. We promise.

Our best gig was at Oppikoppi 2016, a festival attendee in the audience flashed us while we were playing on stage – we’ve always wanted to run into her again and applaud her “assests”.

Worst gig was at a wedding where the grandmother of the bride was so absolutely appauled by our music that she wanted us to stop playing immediately. Her exact words were “Aw no man, this is terrible.”

Our dream gig would definitely be sharing a stage with Zolani from Freshlyground. She is a big inspiration to the band, and one of the most influential people in the South African music scene.

BOOK NOW

Alice Phoebe Lou’s fiercely independent approach to her music has given the singer songwriter a creative confidence that shines through in her captivating vocals and stripped back music. Having developed her bluesy, folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin, Alice has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice.

Alice grew up on a mountainside in South Africa listening to her parent’s records and indulging her love of theatre, arts and music at a local Waldorf school; a formative time that nurtured her independence and desire to experience music of all styles. This multi-faceted creative upbringing mixed with Alice’s natural wanderlust and in 2010, 16-year-old Alice made her first journey to Europe during her summer break from school. Inspired by watching fire dancers in Paris, she began to perform likewise to get enough money to fund her travelling.

That summer Alice roamed between Paris and Amsterdam; experiencing the highs and lows of street performances’ underbelly. This vagabond lifestyle was a creative inspiration and gave Alice an enduring taste for the immediacy of street crowds. After returning to South Africa to complete her studies, Alice’s path led her back to Europe and she made her way to the German capital – Berlin. The freedom of the city was intoxicating and she immersed herself in the creative world there.

Alice began busking across Berlin with just her guitar, a small amplifier on a trolley and her mesmerising voice. Her natural talent and captivating delivery started to garner a cult street following with people coming to see her busk and buy her records. The uncompromising creative community of Berlin also helped Alice grow musically and she collaborated with acoustic, jazz and electronic musicians; including multi-instrumentalist Matteo who quickly became Alice’s live performance companion. Soon Alice self-released her first body of work – the Momentum EP – her first collaborative effort recorded between Berlin and Cape Town with five different producers. Although by now interest was sparked with several major labels, Alice’s desire to maintain the creative freedom she had fostered kept her focus on growing her digital community of loyal fans and imagining ever more interesting settings for her intimate live shows.

In February 2018, acclaimed South African Folk Roots guitarist will join forces with Iranian, oud virtuoso, Yasamin Shahhosseini for a South African tour. Nibs says, I never been as excited about a collaboration since Yasamin and I have decided to work together. She is so rooted in her deep Persian tradition, but yet at the same time she wants to fuse her influences with my Southern African and global folk and world styles. Living in different continents, we have already started the creative process, by sending each other ideas. This has really stretched me by leaps and bounds and I truly believe something special is going to come out of this.” Nibs and Yasamin plan to record an album on this tour in and between many shows on the road.

 Although we have not physically met each other, we have been sending each other musical ideas, which I truly believe has the recipe for an incredible collaboration. It will be the meeting of two vastly different cultures coming together with a message of hope and peace through the music. Just trying to learn a new musical language to fit in with my South African soundscape has really made me shift gears. I am almost sure, that this will all end up on a new album!!!!

In any context, Gangs of Ballet’s audiences are encouraged to experience the band’s music in ways that are dually intuitive and physical as their music seeks to stimulate the musically-minded while also providing those merely seeking a good time with a good reason to dance.

The first single from the EP, entitled Always, reached #3 on 5FM and #9 on KFM and 947. In January 2016, the band released a second single from the EP, I Can Hear You, which peaked at nr. 2 on the 5FM Top 40.

March 2016 , Gangs of Ballet supported Of Monsters and Men on their South African Tour and currently working on Part 2 of their Form and Function album.

BOOK NOW

Ernestine Deane incorporates jazz, soul, goema, funk & hip-hop into music that has a distinctly Cape identity, as well as a worldliness that transcends borders and genres.  An urban African voice sharing ancient African stories, she is known for her distinctive and incredibly powerful  emotive vocals, laid over chilled, uplifting grooves.
Her homecoming to SA, after some years spent living and performing in Europe, has seen her welcomed with open arms by her fans here, with sold out concerts at Cafe Roux, Cape Town Fringe and the iStudios Lapa.  Ernestine is a mesmerizing live act and has performed at festivals including the Haarlem Jazz festival, Oppikoppi, Womad, Pukkelpop, Rocking the Daisies the & Cape Town International Jazz Festival.

Ernestine is now working with an all woman band on her new material, with her latest single, Flow, produced by Gabi le Roux (known for his work with Mandoza and other top SA artists), due for release in late 2017.   The band includes: Terryl Bell on drums, Tiana Marwanqana on bass, Nobuhle Mazinyane on keys, Rayelle Goodman on violin and Ernestine Deane on vocals.

“Ernestine Deane is a Capetonian musical institution in and of herself. A remarkable talent and respected peer of mine since the 1990s when we recognized the need for intentional industry creation interventions in the interest of inclusive nation and culture building in the democratic South African era. I am today, more than two decades later, still in awe of her and her work. She has an uniquely dexterous voice, massive range not only in pitch but also projection, style, texture, phrasing and the capacity to emote and take audiences with her. And she is an exceptionally skilled improviser – perhaps the most exciting part of any artist’s creative capacity as I see it. I love working with her. She touches me deeply, every time.”

BOOK NOW

A celebration of the poets, their songs and of course paired with wine!  Featuring guitar virtuouso & songwriter, Mel Botes.

For the past nine years, multi-talented musician and master guitarist Mel Botes, has tantalized audiences all over the country with his critically acclaimed musical performances in two Pink Floyd tribute shows, “Crazy Diamond” and “Dark Side of the Moon” and later his tribute to Dire Straits, “Sultans of Swing”, plus his two original masterpieces, “David’s Confession” and “Flight of Bird”.


Audiences and critics agreed that he mastered the complexity and density of the music in both the tribute shows in a way that none of the other tribute shows have achieved.
In the show, “POETS WINE & SONG”, Mel will take you on a trip down memory lane, as the music of iconic musical poets, such as Mark Knopfler, David Gilmour, Rodriques, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young & Roger Waters, to name a few, is interpreted through the eyes, mind and voice of Mel Botes! A seasoned raconteur, Mel will relate how words become songs and why these songs made such an extraordinary impact on him personally and on the music-listening community at large.

He will also make use of the opportunity to showcase some of his original work! Be swept away by a selection of original music from his albums, “David’s Confession”, “Flight of the Bird” plus the new “River Symphony” –  A symphony in progress.  This show will feature the same pinpoint accuracy in his playing, the same delightful Botes’ touch, and authenticity that audiences have come to expect from the virtuoso. Join Mel for all the best acoustic songs from our favourite singing poets!

Opening the stage for this sit-down show is Cape Town-born singer, songwriter, musician & performer, Tanja Storm. She has been performing her own compositions to audiences at most venues in the Garden Route for the last decade. She is also an active musical director, in association with Storm Produktionz and the legendary Mel Botes. Tanja has had her songs broadcasted over radio stations nationwide and her music videos have featured on KykNet. With her soulful, sophisticated style, Tanja captivates any audience. You are sure to be in for an entertaining, yet profound, artistic experience!
