France and South Africa are collaborating to culturally cross-pollinate the two nations, indulging us with phenomenal creative talent. This initiative is now moving into high gear as the first French Season in South Africa goes into full swing.  France – South Africa Seasons 2012 & 2013 have more than 120projects, exhibitions, concerts, performances, colloquiums and interactive sessions, which celebrates the commonality of our cultural diversity, with one of the most exciting spectacles being the Kill The DJ South African Tour.

TOYTOY, one of Johannesburg’s top underground clubbing brands is celebrating their first birthday and will be rolling out the red carpet at their weekly home Capital Music Café in Rosebank on the 14th September and then moving on to the Mother City the following night at the legendary Fiction on Long St.

 

Two of the hottest artists from Kill The DJ’s stable, Ivan Smagghe and Chloé Thévenin will be entertaining us with their flawless skills. These hard to define masters of electronic music are sure to delight the local crowds with their unusual sounds and fluid mixing.

 

Ivan Smagghe

 

Ivan Smagghe is widely regarded as France’s most wanted radio host and selector, effortlessly fusing his uncompromising musical integrity with distinctive Parisian hype.  Ivan has inspired a new generation with his genre defying production work, and his music promises fans the equivalent of stargazing from Mars on the dance floor. Renowned for his work in Black Strobe and It’s a Fine Line, his dj mix albums like Suck my Deck and his Fabric compilation hold their place in the fabled hall of dj fame with recognition from fellow world electronic maverick pioneers like Andrew Weatherall, James Murphy, Ata and Optimo to name a few.

 

Chloé

 

Celebrated for her unusual and eclectic musical style, Chloé is well known for her ability to captivate the dance floor as her dark, sensual undertones gently bring the music to life. She is a regular on the European club scene, including places like Robert Johnson, Mondo and Rex Club – and now TOYTOY. She also frequents the festival circuit, and has fast become one of the most sought-after leaders of the contemporary electronic scene. Fans will know her for her large back catalogue of remixes and EPs, releasing killer cuts on Live at Robert Johnson, Karat records, BPitch Control, as well the albums, “The Waiting Room”, and “One in Other”, which was nominated for French music award (Les Victoires de la Musique.) Both albums were released on the seminal label that she co-founded: Kill The DJ.

Ukhozi FM Gospel Revival

Posted by radio On August - 13 - 2012 2 COMMENTS

By Thato Mokhou

Renowned artists in the gospel music fraternity set the stage ablaze at the Ukhozi Gospel Music Festival held at the Coca Cola Park (Ellis Park) on Saturday, 4 August.  Acts such as Rebecca Malope, Sechaba, Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Lundi and Sipho Makhabane thrilled the crowd as they belted out their most loved songs.

 

It was clear that the Zulu radio station has a massive following as people poured in to experience this impressive musical extravaganza.  By  10 am stadium was roaring with joyous songs of worship and praise coaxing the crowd into a dance frenzy.

Ukhozi’s Linda Sibiya graced the stage to add to the entertainment.  The DJ is famously known for his powerful and motivational breakfast show.

The overarching message of the festival was “Worship God Together”. This resonated throughout Coca Cola Park as performances by Rebecca Malope reached out to the hearts and souls of those who had gathered before God.  A choir of fans sang along in unison.

The festival is the brainchild of EMI Live and BIG FISH Productions who collaborated with Vodacom and SABC as official sponsors.  Proceeds were donated to the Arnie Williams Foundation for Abused Women and Children.   Ukhozi has surely increased its following by bringing the most loved artists to the public. It is an initiative which prompts society to work together in building relationships and reviving hope in the lives that are in need.   The organisers are set to make the show an annual event.

 

As people enjoyed stellar performances, they also celebrated their faith till the sun set at 7pm.

 

Is gospel music a method used to bring people together? Should other radio stations get involved with such music festivals to boost social presence and promote social cohesion? Share your views.
