The deteriorating appreciation for original electronic music.

I’ve been meaning to write this article for months, but have decided to take a step back in the hope that over time this issue would resolve itself.

Alas, it is now several months into 2012, and it seems that some of the best of South Africa’s electronic talent still goes by not only seemingly unnoticed, but also nearly crucified for failing to comply with the monotonous & commercial norm.

“Can’t you play something harder?” “This is too chilled, don’t you have some dubstep?” 

To the artists that are condemned to be underground whilst deserving the lead in the South Africa electronic movement – this article is for you.

Time to get educated.

My salary for your parking bay

The parking situation and related costs are no foreign concepts to your average Cape Tonian; young professionals and recent graduates on their first job are imposed with the parking dilemma that could very possibly cost them a large portion of their exceptionally base salary.

This debate is even further heated up with the City Council current parking tender (being reviewed by the public during the month of March) that calls for after-hours parking control that will now too impose a cost in selected central areas of Cape Town.

A benefit to establishments at the despair of young workers, I review the current and proposed parking plans and contribute with a balanced suggestion of my own.

A mystical escape to the Masqued Ball

Masqued Ball has always been considered the last ‘big party’ of the season, so when the news of the venue having burnt down was announced a mere two weeks before the event hearts shattered across Cape Town as people began to question:

“Would there be no Masqued Ball 2012?”

Are you a burger fan? Then you must be a Hudsons fan :)

It’s absolutely bizarre to me that it has taken me this long to give you a take on the Hudsons burger joint (now joints, as they’ve opened in Green Point and recently in Claremont too).

These guys make some of the best burgers the Mother City has to offer ; a variety like no other, gourmet sensations and specials to follow.

Read it all after the jump 🙂

There’s too much MDMA in Cape Town

This article is one that is merely objective and critical, and is by no means a personal attack on any individual, group or place, and with such no names will be mentioned.

I have been ‘inspired’, for the lack of a better word, to write an article that regards the excessive drug usage in Cape Town, specifically focusing on MDMA and Cocaine. I have noticed this progression for the past several years, yet during my last few outings, I came to the following realisation:

A drug free outing has become the exception rather than the norm

Deadmau5’s ignorant fans

In anticipation for Deadmau5′s arrival at South Africa, he posted a link depicting the latest line up announcement on his fanpage.

Commenting on such a link were some of the most ignorant people I have yet to face

In the spirit of humour, and to correct some gormless idiots, I give you this post, whereby i’ll attempt to counter their foolish misperceptions.

Let the name and shame begin (Yes, we have computers with internet in SA, so I can bust your ass in public)

NB: WE HAVE FULL RESPECT FOR DEADMAU5, THIS IS ONLY DIRECTED AT THE SEVERAL FANS THAT ARE JUST TOO IGNORANT TO REALISE HOW GREAT THIS COUNTRY IS

I got myself some Cold Turkey and absolutely loved it!

Before you are misled by the title, as indifferent that I am to actual cold turkey, this has nothing to do with sandwich ingredients.

By the end of this post however, I shall convince you that the Cold Turkey Sunday parties are highly worth going to.

Braai, bass & beers – after the jump!

This weeks rant – car guards!

looks like hard work

You see, my work requires a heck of a lot of driving , this inevitably leads to a shit load of parking. In all seriousness, I probably spend a few hundred bucks a month on parking my car. Never mind insurance, petrol & upkeep … As much as I hate paying for parking, I can understand why you pay in malls: They have constructed a full on , big ass, concrete multi-level parking facility. But , what really fucking gets me going , Car Guards!
