Mix n Blend kick off their ‘Look Mom No Hands’ album launch Tour

image

Stellenbosch’s Mystic Boer hosted the first leg of Mix n Blend’s: ‘Look Mom No Hands’ album launch tour this past Friday with a dress-up party of note. Nightmare Before Christmas was the theme, and in true Matie style, no holds were barred, no costume was too ridiculous, and no amount of face painting too extreme. Once again, and as usual, Mix n Blend came to pop the people’s socks off, and that is exactly and precisely what they did, building things up in typically consummate style to their diverse live act that had the crowd monkeying around (as suggested on their album cover).

For some fans, the nightmare will live in the mind for many a Christmas to come, as inevitably, when you drink in Stellenbosch, things go wrong. Some people say that I (Bakaman) ended up passing out in the wee hours and had to be carried out of the Mystical. Personally, I don’t believe those kind of lies. Others say that Honey B spent the night in lock up for drunk driving. (While on the way to the police station to identify the person who’d just stolen her phone. Irony, no?). 

All that I can tell you for sure is that it all went down like a spoonful of sugar. While the Stellies medicine is what caused all the trouble. ‘Look Mom No Hands’ is coming to a club near you this December as the tour takes them country-wide. We’ll be keeping you posted. 

Check out the pictures below and listen to songs from the album on Soundcloud. The whole shabang will be for sale in the Dope Store by 6 November.

The Return of Krushed & Sorted!!!

image

Perhaps the only story that could ever warrant the use of three exclamation marks on this oh so tasteful website. A visual orgasm is what Earthdance was treated to as Krushed & Sorted debuted their LITERALLY ground-breaking, live audio-visual masterpiece of masterfully Dope beats, metronomically mixed with psychedelic, serious and hilarious live visuals.
And of course the live drums put a sticky, glossy, shiny cherry on top of a cake you just want to bury your face in. Enough from the giddy fan, here’s a verbatim quote from Krushed & Sorted orginal Roach to explain: 

“[It’s] A futuristic, live, synchronized, audio-visual performance. Involving audio samples from ableton, and video samples from vj software: VDMX. This being triggered simultaneously by the same controller, and tweaked live by all three players: Fletcher [beats], Inka [visuals] and Shaun Ou Tim [live drums]”.

Video footage coming shortly… GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!
