Artist Interview: Sage Francis in Johannesburg, South Africa!!!

Word!!! it was such an honour to perform at this show!! I’ll never forget it for as long as I live. =)

dohiphop.com

On the 6 August 2015 we had the pleasure of hosting the international indie juggernaut Sage Francis at Iron Tusk in Johannesburg, South Africa!!! dohiphop.comBeneath The Surface and Lalelani Studios banded together in collaboration with TheFilmGuys and Caps and Cans, making sure that Sage Francis appeared on Jozi soil.

Sage Francis is widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists. His career derives mainly from gifted wordplay that creates vivid narratives to instigate as well as inspire, but since it often derives from an accumulation of public disdain and personal turmoil, it’s more about storming the castle than about watching the throne.

We got to catch up with him before the show for an interview about his thoughts on life, hip-hop, Copper Gone, South Africa and general Tom foolery; Filmed and put together by TheFilmGuys… Check it out here:

This was one of those historic events that will forever…

New Music: ThiNXx- Excuse ME (Demo)

KnowMoreMusic

There is a new demo from one my absolute favorite underground hip hop artists, ThiNXx.  ThiNXx is an independent hip hop artist from Johannesburg, South Africa.  He spits stories and ideas with lyricism that is nearly unmatched in all of hip hop.

Not only does he run dohiphop.com, he is also a graffiti artist and signed to the Michigan based collaborative, Arcadiac Records.  He has also gotten recognition from major sources and even Strange Famous Records.

What ThiNXx has to say about this track:

“I finished writing this while travelling through the Karroo(EC) around 3 hours before the SA President finally addressed parliament and stated categorically that he would not “pay back the money”. I mean why would he; it’s only more money than most people see in their entire lives and it’s not like South Africans need housing or hospitals at all… right? Not to mentions it’s only…

“Speechless” – Debut Instrumental Album – Out Now!

Peace people…

So the day has officially arrived!! I proudly present “Speechless”,  my brand new and very first instrumental album available in various formats now via Arcadiac Records (Limited Edition Compact Disc), my own website / Bandcamp (Very Limited Edition Customised Cassette)as well as I-Tunes (digital version) and every other digital outlet available; so, hopefully getting your hands on it will not be an issue. This is the custom cassette tape version via myself:

What..? Speechless you say..? But Why…?

Well… “Speechless” because the world shocks me into submission practically every single day without fail. The news horrifies, people disappoint, nature destroys and yet we’re still here. Every time one thinks humans should have learned from mistakes and surely things can start to get better the cycle continues and history repeats itself relentlessly… day after day, year after year. This project purposely has not a single word, cut or sample to try and relay the emotions that entrap my thoughts daily leaving only the basis of what I’m all about with nothing extra to add or opinion to offer to help lift the mood; because try as I may, I just don’t have the words.Speechless -PSD Filetape copy

It is a purposely bland album designed to intrigue introspect and allow for reflection on the planet as it stands at the moment. Everything is left to the imagination with some serious chillwave and ambient steez which could also be great for just chilling out and listening to some laid back tunes that don’t force themselves upon you but rather just enhance the mood of whatever you’re doing  at the time.

The simply stunning cover art put together by the one and only Jim Baum! I really don’t think it could be any better ♥ Plus he even went one step further and assembled some very limited CD’s for ya!
Grab a jewel case containing “Speechless” on compact disc along with custom artwork and stickers by the man himself!

if you prefer getting your music via I-tunes, this is the direct link:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/speechless/id1037747532

If you have any questions etc. or by some stroke of luck would like to review / feature or do a write-up about the album please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form below…

I really hope  you enjoy the tunes and can relate on some level.
Nothing but the best to you and yours.

Peace, love, respect, light!

2015: The Show of my Lifetime + Some News for Ya!

Peace People.

Hope you’re all doing well… Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates; especially since this has turned out to be one of the most important years of my life as a musician and it’s you guys that have pushed me to this point, so, Thank you!
2015-07-26 10.06.26-2If you didn’t hear about it; last month, on the 6th of August I had the honour of opening for one of my greatest mentors in music: the one and only Sage Francis. I’m completely humbled by the whole experience and getting to meet the man himself! What an amazing artist and all round human being!
2015-08-06 16.13.20Thanks Uncle Sage. Getting to see you live has breathed new life into my art and I really learned so much from what you did on that stage; simply incredible! So, again; I apologize for not actually announcing this performance: I just had a really busy few weeks leading up to the event. Hopefully some of you did make it out on the night and got to see the show.
2015-08-06 21.44.55-2On the night itself; I got to break away from the norm by doing the whole DJ thing (something I’ve been doing quite a bit of recently) and then for the 30 minutes prior to the acts I dropped cuts alongside the homie Immaculate Mentality killing the live drumming on Maschine. This was too much fun and I really feel we did it some justice.
11821918_1027919690560373_214412977_n(1)The show was hosted by Safari of The Articulate Artists and he did an amazing job with the announcements and interacting with the crowd. Big ups! Really dope to see him up on that stage again and more so getting to see him on a new track. The local line-up consisted of some serious talent from the JHB indie scene and I must say it’s a huge privilege to be able to get up there and bear my soul alongside them all. To S!CK, Soothsayers, Slege Lee, Power of Thought, Yugen Blakrok , Tha Cutt, Exerpt and of course Sage, and then to the organisers dohiphop.com, Beneath the Surface, Lalelani Studios, Caps and Cans and TheFilmGuys; thank you for making this a reality! Never did I ever think this would happen or even be possible but it did and we made it so. Mad Respect all round!
11893952_1613028888969965_1776061747183282137_oAlso, to Iron Tusk; dope sound, venue, service… Really looking forward to more shows in the future.
2015-07-28 17.52.37Thank you soo much to all of you who checked out my performance; You guys totally outdid yourselves. I mean, to look up and see so many of you staring back at me… well, I have no words.
You really make this all worth while ♥
2015-07-27 15.55.21Anyways… I won’t try include my whole life in a single update and rather save some things for future posts but I will tell you that I do have a lot of very exciting things happening at the moment and I can’t wait for them to be done so I can tell you all about them.
10366203_10154207434017222_7369790720198786114_nSomething that is done though; is my brand new and first ever Instrumental album dropping 15 September 2015 on Arcadiac Records! With that said, however; I’ll save it for the official announcement =)

Peace, love, respect, light!

Sage Francis – Live in Johannesburg, South Africa – 6 August 2015!!!

Word… I’m sooo excited for this!!!
see you at the show =)

dohiphop.com

On the 6 August 2015, we will be hosting the international indie juggernaut Sage Francis at Iron Tusk in Newtown, Johannesburg!!! Beneath The Surface, dohiphop.com and Lalelani Studios have banded together in collaboration with TheFilmGuys and Caps and Cans to make sure that Sage Francis appears on Jozi soil.

Sage Francis is widely considered one of our generation’s greatest lyricists. His career derives mainly from gifted wordplay that creates vivid narratives to instigate as well as inspire, but since it often derives from an accumulation of public disdain and personal turmoil, it’s more about storming the castle than about watching the throne.

Dubbed as the “forefather of indie-hop,” Francis originally earned acclaim in the early 2000’s by winning the most highly coveted titles of the emcee battle circuit. With little to no funding, Francis sustained himself by selling his innovative “Sick of” mixtapes, all made by hand on the floor…
