Mix n Blend Launch a Swinging Success

On Friday the 4th of December, Mix n Blend unleashed the official launch of their debut album at Assembly in Cape Town.. And the earth trembled.

I’m certain that Mix n Blend remember a time when a party was just that.. a party. Those days when they would be ordering pizza instead of drawing faces on cardboard fish and sea-monkeys. Those summery Friday afternoons of reclining on the beach instead of precariously suspending cardboard waves from the ceiling beams. Those breezy summer evenings of pre-drinks with friends instead of extensive sound-checking and thumb-twiddling. Those days are dead. Though of course, all the hard work is worth it ten times over when the whole crowd doesn’t budge from the dancefloor throughout your live set.

A whirlwind of MC’s plundered on and off the stage while Mix n Blend treated the people of our fine city to an evening of hands in the air and wide-open jaws, performing and effecting songs from their album ‘Look Mom No Hands’ live on stage. A seamless collaboration of a range of talented Capetonians crooning, rapping and playing instruments live, Rayelle, Ross DaBone, EJ Von Lyrik, Bakaman, Lee Thomson, Mike Zietsman, Farrell Adams and Sindy (who became a mother today, congratulations Sindy!!) all whipped the crowd up into a frenzy while the Blenders handled the beats.

African Dope extends a thousand thank you’s to all the acts that took part in this musical bonanza, Filewile was nothing short of superb, Chamber Concept brought on the sweat (if I don’t say so myself), Niskerone was the unquenchable energy that he always is, and Hyphen was his typical class-act self. Check some pictures from the preparation to the party on Flickr, watch out for Mix n Blend all over the place this December, including the Nokia Comes with Music Party Bus, and always, ALWAYS, remember to be cool.

Yes. You. Be cool.
