Sing ’it: Jax Panik’s advice for writers
Jax Panik - 2011-09-07
Where do you begin writing a song/finding lyrics for a song? The chorus, the first line, the overall theme, etc? It depends. Mostly it starts out with a hook of some sort, either a melody or a lyrical hook, and we’d repeat that over and over and build on it with other ideas until it becomes a full song. Sometimes a chorus comes first, sometimes a chorus becomes a verse, sometimes we write three different choruses before we are happy. The song kind of takes you in the direction it wants...

Sing ’it: iScream and the Chocolate Stix’s advice for writers
iScream & the Chocolate Stix - 2011-09-07
Where do you begin writing a song/finding lyrics for a song? The chorus, the first line, the overall theme, etc? I normally pick up a tune while in the shower and it could start with a hook, a chorus, a bridge – so it really is a spontaneous choice. What does a typical song structure of yours look like – how many lines, where does the chorus fit in, etc? What the structures look like? Ok, 8, 12, even 14 bars of verse; first chorus 8 bars leading into bridge coming out of hook...

A great song with great lyrics: Sean Ou Tim from Mr Sakitumi suggests ...
Sean Ou Tim - 2011-09-07
“Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen. I don't think anyone will ever come close to this song. Musically speaking, it is brilliantly arranged and flawlessly executed, weaving between genres. The amazing thing is, it actually has no chorus. That just demonstrates how genius the lyrics are. It's like an epic Lord of the Rings trilogy: each section of the song can stand on its own, but when they are all placed together the way they were, the entire piece becomes a work of art. And good luck to...

Sing ’it: Dans Dans Lisa’s advice for writers
Dans Dans Lisa - 2011-09-07
Where do you begin writing a song/finding lyrics for a song? The chorus, the first line, the overall theme, etc? I usually start with the music. Every time I play music it tells me a story and then I start telling that story with the words, so it’s like the music is half of the story. But there are no recipes. You have to find what works best for you. Sometimes I have a few lyrics written down, then I find music that fits. But it’s all up to you. What does a typical song structure...

Sing ’it: Bittereinder’s advice for writers
Bittereinder - 2011-09-07
Where do you begin writing a song/finding lyrics for a song? The chorus, the first line, the overall theme, etc? Tricky question, but I’m pretty sure most songwriters will tell you that each song has its own story. Sometimes a melody arrives from nowhere, sometimes a lyric and a melody together, sometimes an instrument leads the way, sometimes just a few words. In Bittereinder’s case, every song on our first album was created in a different way between the three of us. What does a typical...

Dans Dans Lisa - 2011-09-06

Niskerone and SFR - 2011-09-06
Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? We once had a really tight deadline to finish off a track and a full weekend of shows around South Africa. We ended up writing most of the track on a flight from Cape Town to Durban and in the club during sound check before the show that night. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? Some of the local artists we really like are Mix 'n Blend, Jack Parow and Sibot. They've all raised the bar and are competing...

Bittereinder - 2011-09-06
Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? Earth. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? There’s a clear distinction to be made between lyric and song-writing, but most of the artists we name here are pretty good at both. Lyrically, Toast Coetzer (from Buckfever Underground), Tumi Molekane (from Tumi and the Volume), Hunter Kennedy (from Fokofpolisiekar) and Zubz are some of the best writers in SA.

Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? I think I wrote a song in my head on a roller coaster. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? Wrestlerish. What themes particularly interest you at this stage of your career? I think the idea of giving songs the space to breathe as opposed to just going flat-out is the hardest thing to perfect in music.

Dans Dans Lisa - 2011-09-06
Ek is baie bevoorreg om elke oggend met ’n melodie in my kop wakker te word. As ek om een of ander rede nie met een wakker word nie, tref hy my in die stort. En dit is hoekom my album Stort treffers goud gegaan het, want my beste songs perform ek net in die stort. Daar is nie regtig ’n resep oor hoe om ’n liedjie te skryf nie. Wat ek gewoonlik doen is, ek het ’n notaboek of my laptop altyd by my en wanner lirieke of ’n interessante frase my tref, dan skryf ek dit...

Marcia Moon - 2011-09-05
Om ’n liedjie te kan skryf, het jy jou kop en jou siel nodig, en partykeer net jou siel ... ’n Liedjie bestaan eintlik net uit twee goed, woorde en ’n melodie, as jy dit het, het jy die liedjie, die res is bysake. As jy ’n instrument kan speel, kan dit bydra tot die atmosfeer terwyl jy skryf, maar om ’n liedjie te skryf, hoef jy nie ’n instrument te kan speel nie. Top tien wenke: Hou jou “kreatiewe put” vol.

Bittereinder - 2011-07-12
Background and formation Bittereinder was formed early in 2009 when Jaco van der Merwe approached Peach van Pletzen and Louis Minnaar about his desire to start an Afrikaans rap project.

He had begun the journey of uncovering the dormant power of rap in his mother tongue in 2007. Peach van Pletzen, also known as Yesterday’s Pupil,...

Sing 'it: Jax Panik
Jax Panik - 2011-07-12
Jax Panik started as a parody of sorts. Founding members Jacobus van Heerden and Johnny de Ridder (Cape Town-based music producers) initially set out to create a mock pop star / pop group, combining catchy music with bubblegum visuals and videos. The idea was largely in reaction to the traditional rock band paradigm that dominated South African music at the time. From the onset Jax Panik sought to do things differently – initially refusing to play live, distributing his music online only, extensively...
