While lockdown became a major setback for many creatives, it also gave opportunity for new avenues of growth and experimentation. The formation of the new music duo ‘Theportalefx’, had many of us thanking the president for the implemented regulations that inadvertently led to this beautiful convergence.
Joburg trio “Art Bishups” deliver their debut album ‘Mix’d Feelings’. The country, having gone so long without a prominent rap/hip-hop group has been blessed with a rare kind of species who easily made their intentions clear about their authenticity off the mark with an alternative,trip-hop,off-beat sound.
I first came across Flex Of He & I when they performed at Black Labone in 2018 while I was still Head Of Media for the show. To this day, I’m extremely grateful for the experience of being a part of that organising team because of the opportunity of coming across such performances. The type of music the collective makes was one I only heard through the likes of Tumi & The Volume and even those projects were hard to get hold of, let alone see live.
