The raddest festival to come to the West Coast is the exciting Malkop Rock Festival. Now in its second year, the 2016 event promises to be one for the books! With a line up better than most other events in the area, you have no choice but to pack your bags and road trip to this special festival.
I caught up with Gert from Mr. Cat & the Jackal, who is on the line up, to chat a bit about the festival:
Jazz-Rock-inspired Cape Town band ‘Boketto’ just released the first single ‘All I Want’ off their debut album ‘About You’.
New on the South African musical scene, Boketto is a 5-piece band formed by a singer-songwriter duo in high school in Johannesburg. In December 2015, after moving to Cape Town, they recorded an album titled ‘About You’, a hybrid jazz, blues rock, folk, improvisation and groove-based album. DPC caught up with the band to chat about their music and debut single.
Today marks the official release of Medicine Boy’s Kinda Like Electricity. Made up of Cape Town-based Andre Leo and Lucy Kruger, the album is their first full-length offering. Medicine Boy was established in 2014 and has since performed at every big festival and event across South Africa. Their dreamy, intimate live performances have been named one of the most unique and remarkable in South Africa. The album is now available on ITunes.
I caught up with Lucy to talk music and their plans for the rest of 2016.
Oppikoppi is almost here… So, brush last year’s dust off your boots and camping gear, we’re going to Northam!
The line-up looks insane this year, with legendary local bands and internationals in the mix. DPC caught up with one of these legendary bands, WONDERboom, to talk about the first few Oppikoppi festivals, what you can expect from their set and celebrating 20 years in the music industry…
