Sing ’it reaches 1000 entries
Maggie van Eeden - 2011-10-14
Sing ’it has topped the 1 000 entry mark and Maggie van Eeden chatted to the 1 000th entrant, Derek Crosson, about his lyrics, what he would do with the R3 000 prize money if he won, and why he decided to take part. How does it feel to be the 1 000th entrant? I was quite surprised when I received the call, but it’s good to know that there are over 1 000 entries and so many people are interested in writing lyrics. Why did you decide to take part in the competition? I love music and...

Music industry heavy weights share their favorite songs
2011-09-06
We asked a few industry big weights to name their best example of a great song with great lyrics and here's what they came up with ... Sean Ou Tim - Mr Sakitumi “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:...

Sing ’it interview with Dans Dans Lisa
Dans Dans Lisa - 2011-09-06
Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? In an exam. My head started going into a certain direction and I had to pause while writing the exam and write the song on the back of the questions paper. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? Dance You're on Fire and Wrestlerish. What themes particularly interest you at this stage of your career? Being the "underdog". Love. Relationships. Not having all the answers in life. Just being human,...

Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? Luke Viviers: Underneath a cherry blossom tree! Tony da bass: Weirdest place to write a song? Bath, train, having a dump, etc. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? Luke Viviers: No one stands out, but a lot of South African bands are really finding some great sounds as of late. Tony da bass: Local bands? Songwriting quality? Eish.

Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever written/composed a song? In the F1 hotel in Parow. Which local band’s songwriting shows consistent quality? Die Heuwels Fantasties. What themes particularly interest you at this stage of your career? Self-destruction and reconstruction, interesting people, challenges in life and love … That kind of thing.

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. Good SA songwriters include bands like...

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. That’s what’s interesting us at the moment. What is the best song you’ve...

Bouwer Bosch van Dans Dans Lisa deel sy skryfgeheime
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...

DJ Cleo - 2011-07-13
DJ Cleo has been the most upfront, significant and influential dance music producer in South Africa for the past eight years at least, having repeatedly earned respect with different genres such as house, kwaito and hip hop.

Niskerone and SFR - 2011-07-12
Currently known as the "the man behind It Came From The Jungle" (BPM Mag), "king of the underground Drum & Bass jungle" (Cape Argus) and "Cape Town's Drum & Bass stalwart" (Mixmag), Niskerone was raised on the dusty streets of Mitchell’s Plain in the heart of the notorious Cape Flats. Niskerone’s combination of wicked DJ skills and an extensive knowledge of the genre led him to host a radio show on UCT Radio for two years alongside Trouble On Vinyl, Zombie Recordings and Hollow...

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...
