ROASTIN’ RECORDS INTERVIEW

Roastin' Records That Analog Feeling

Who is Roastin’ Records?
Roastin’ Records was born out of the shared love for vinyl records. Roastin’ Records is Wentzel van der Gryp and Rouleaux van der Merwe. Wentzel started sourcing and selling new and used vinyls in 2012 and set up a small record shop inside Deluxe Coffee Works. Wentzel asked Rouleaux to help him with some designs for a logo. One thing led to another and Wentzel and Rouleaux partnered up and decided to start a small independent label releasing local music that they love.

What makes vinyl records so special?
It is a combination of the cover art, the variety of the formats (12inch / 10inch / 7inch), the analog nature of the music and the way that you are ‘forced’ to listen to the whole record. You can’t just skip to the next song (like with a mp3), you kinda have to sit through an album and wait for your favorite song to come up. It makes you appreciate the music listening experience so much more.

Roastin' Records Logo

What was the motivation behind starting Roastin’ Records?
Both of us are fairly obsessed with music. It is a way to channel our collective obsession into something we can share with other people.

Aren’t you worried that the popularity of records is just a trend that will eventually pass on?
We were collecting and swapping/trading vinyl many years before it became a hipster trend. I don’t think that it will go away. People are looking at vinyl to reignite the spark of owning music. It is one thing to have thousands of mp3’s, and to be completely honest, you never actually own those mp3’s. It was either downloaded, copied or ripped from a CD. Buying a vinyl record gives you the satisfaction of holding the physical incarnation of the music in your hands.

Why do you think it has taken South Africans so long to get into collecting records?
You’ve always had your serious collectors in SA, but kids who grew up in the digital age has caught on to the trend you talk about above.

Make Overs Red Vinyl

Roastin’ Records has recently been acting more as a records label, having released a few records for bands. Is this the direction you’re moving towards?
We definitely want to put out as many records as we can. Because vinyl has become a standard output for international bands we want to give SA bands a platform to be on par with the rest of the world. The music is definitely on the same level. SA has so many amazing bands who deserve to have their music on vinyl.

Wildernessking The Devil Inside

Wildernessking 10

What are some of the releases you’ve put out?
Our latest release, the Wildernessking 10inch EP is just about to see the light of day, and we are very excited about it. Roastin’ Records also did a collaborative release for the Pretoria noise punkers Make-Overs with Angry Africa and KRNGY.

Roastin' Records

That Analog Feeling

Any sneak peeks for what we can expect from Roastin’ Records in the near future?
We have a couple of 7inches we want to bring out – a split with Cape Town’s Peasant and JHB heavyweights Conqueror. Also maybe a 7inch for the grindcore band Anthropocene Hell. We will also be getting in some fresh new music on a monthly basis which are available on the webshop and at the record bin in Deluxe Coffee. We also DJ regularly in and around Cape Town and try to let the vinyl sound reach as many people as possible. If you are ever at a venue where we are DJing, please do come say HELLO. We also like tequila.

I imagine you guys have your ear quite close to the ground with South African music. Who should we be keeping an ear out for in the future?
The Psych Night guys are doing some great stuff, The Very Wicked, The Dollfins, WEA (but I think they called it a day?), Black Lung, Bilderberg Motel, Changeling, Peasant, The Moths, Death Pegasus, Make Overs, Conqueror, Dead Lucky, Black Math, Bad Drugs etc.

Top 10 vinyl records of all time?
Unfair question. We both have a broad range of musical taste, but I (Rouleaux) tend to like punk/harcore stuff the most. I can have a top 10 in loads of different genres.

Here is my top 10 list :
1. Descendents – Milo Goes to College
2. Fugazi – End Hits
3. Hawkwind – Space Ritual
4. Fucked Up – Chemistry of Common Life
5. Poison the Well – Versions
6. Ceremony – Ronhert Park
7. The Replacements – Let It Be
8. Sleep – Dopesmoker
9. The Monks – Black Monk Time
10. Bad Brains – S/T

Here is Wentzel’s list. But only for today. Tomorrow it will be very different.
1. Led Zeppelin – II
2. Blood Brothers – Crimes
3. Neil Young – Harvest Moon
4. Panda Bear – Person Pitch
5. Nick Drake – Pink Moon
6. Joanna Newsom – Ys
7. Bob Dylan – Desire
8. Kraftwerk – The Man Machine
9. Nirvana – In Utero
10. Beatles – ? all Beatles!

Changing the lives of Afghan youth through Skateboarding – a feature documentary about Afghanistan, Skateboarding and the people who started Skateistan.

SKATEISTAN – Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul:

In Kabul, torn by more than thirty years of war, a couple of Australian aid workers discover the surprising power of the skateboard to connect with young Afghans of different genders, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Documenting the ambitious efforts of SKATEISTAN, Afghanistan’s only co-educational skateboard school, the film journeys into the lives of Afghanistan’s urban youth with surprising results.

It also captures exclusive footage when an international group of professional skateboarders, including Holland’s Louisa Menke, America’s Cairo Foster and Kenny Reed, and Syria’s Maysam Faraj visit Kabul to work with Skateistan’s kids and to explore the city for interesting skate spots. We see Kabul through the eyes of these pro’s and share their emotions when they first encounter Kabul’s street kids. We’re with Louisa when she experiences the challenges to being a female skating in an Islamic world – but we also capture the joy when Skateistan’s kids and the pro’s skate the streets and landmarks of Kabul together.

DEATH PEGASUS INTERVIEW

band

Death Pegasus are playing a show in Cape Town on Friday night, so caught up with frontman Marcel Marcel for a quick interview…

What is Death Pegasus?
Death Pegasus is a Thrash Metal band from JHB, with members Brian Seston (Drums), Grant Seston (Rhythm Guitar and Gang Vocals), Berneau v.d. Merwe (Base Guitar and Gang Vocals) and Marcel Marcel (Lead Vocals, Lead and Rhythm Guitar).

How long have you guys been a band and what came before that?
We formed the band in November 2012. Before that it was all about art, jamming together and being mega Thrash fans.

What do you do in the band and who does all the artwork?
So far I have been the main writer of the songs and lyrics in Death Pegasus, but recently we have started writing songs together as a band. I also do all the art and visuals for the band, be it cover art, flyers, logo’s etc.

live_photo

How much is the music and art linked?
The art is closely tied to the music. It directly correlates with the lyrical content and general feel of the band and Thrash in general.

What’s it like being a Thrash band in Joburg and how much did growing up in Joburg influence your sound?
It is exciting being a Thrash Metal band from JHB, as there aren’t many Thrash bands out there, leaving a lot of room to expand and expose this genre of metal to the listeners. Growing up in the city of Johannesburg has had a strong influence on the lyrical content, heaviness of the sound and urgency of the vocal style, as the violence, chaos and intense energy impacts your thinking and psyche.

Koos-digital-print

Which bands are your heros?
Big question, but to name a few: Exodus, Nuclear Assault, D.R.I., Slayer, Anthrax, Sepultura.

You guys are playing in Cape Town for the first time this Friday, what can people expect?
Coming to a Death Pegasus show you can expect some serious in-your-face Thrash and general mayhem.

What’s the art show about that will be exhibiting at the show?
The art will be reflecting on all the lyrical themes and concepts of all the songs on our E.P. Critical Madness. From War Inside that talks about inner turmoil, to Critical Madness that speaks about the chaotic and mad state of the world.

Facebook event for their show on Friday.

FORMS: RODAN KANE HART EXHIBITION

Forms - Rodan Kane Hart Exhibition Poster

South African artist Rodan Kane Hart launched his exhibition last night. It’s on now at NIROXprojects, Arts on Main, Johannesburg. Go check it out!

FORMS / S | W
Rodan Kane Hart
12 March – 31 March 2014
NIROXprojects, 264 Fox Street, Arts on Main

NIROXprojects presents FORMS / S | W by Rodan Kane Hart. Following on from Structure, & Pattern Language (2013), Forms / S | W (2014) marks Hart’s third solo showcase in 2 ye­­­ars. The exhibition compromises an entirely new body of work consisting of sculpture, drawing, print & photography. These works follow on from previous points of enquiry regarding the constructed notion of the South African city. After a recent residency at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in England, Hart has shifted his focus to more closely examining the influence of European architectural forms onto the urban fabric of South Africa.

RSVP to the Facebook event here.

Farshid Moussavi and Michael Kubo sum up the conceptual foundations of the exhibition as a whole in a book titled The Function of Ornament. A statement is made that succinctly deifies the relevance of architectural style and ornament, “Architecture needs mechanisms that allow it to become connected to culture”. Absorbing and capturing the forces that shape society achieve this cultural connection. These forces are then used as material components to work with, forming composite materiality. When two forces found within society, Invisible, meaning; Cultural, Political, and Temporal, and, Visible, meaning; Structural, Functional, and Physical, are brought together, it gives way to, a New Aesthetic Composition. Architectural style is not easily adjustable to the changes in culture and society. Modernists utilized transparency to represent architectural elements of space and structure; Post Modernists used Décor, whereas the Deconstructivists used geometrical collage to replace transparency all together. These concepts express the inextricable relationship between, Inside & Outside, Then & Now and Here & There.

Forms / S | W (S suggesting South = South Africa & W suggesting West = England) at NIROXprojects focuses on the formal influences of European Classism, Modernism and Post Modernism. An array of artistic medium has been utilized to present the historical and personal logic behind Hart’s formally abstracted works. Hart has intentionally incorporated more handcrafted methods with those of mechanical and digital processes, setting up a relationship between subject matter, time, theory and aesthetic. Works on display include…

Charcoal drawings & 35mm Black & White photographs inspired by architectural and natural forms found in the English cities of Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool & London, are presented alongside those depicting the South African cities of Johannesburg & Cape Town. These images explore the construction of spatial context by juxtaposing figurative representations with those of abstracted ones.

Being renowned for his life-sized steel sculptures Hart has taken a more intimate and crafted approach, by producing 4 smaller generative sculpture series consisting of 4 stages (each). Hart sees these sculptures as maquettes and studies for larger experiential projects, asserting the Russian Constructivists as an influence. Finally, a series of linocuts presenting the progression of line to shape and subsequently to form over 4 stages will also be on display.

OPEN HOURS: Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm

On Thursday the 6th March Bilderberg Motel will be releasing the vinyl edition of their album Lorien. Printed on glorious heavyweight white wax and done in a limited run, they’ll be celebrating this with a party and a show at the RVCA First Thursday’s night at The Pit. Doors open at 7pm and entrance is free. R200 gets you a copy of the LP and the first 50 sold get a free limited edition tshirt, printed by the band, with their purchase.

“The recording does a good job of capturing their alternatively raucous and melancholy sound. To my ears, The Velvet Underground and The Brian Jones- town Massacre are touchstones, but Bilderberg put its own unique stamp on the garage-band template.” – Sean Shuter, style.com.

IS HUVR TECH REAL?

“This is clearly a new frontier for science and we’re excited and honored to share this first chapter with the world.” – HUVr Team

Is this real? What’s your opinion?

What began as a summer project in 2010 at the MIT Physics Graduate Program has evolved into one of the most exciting independent products to be developed out of MIT since the high-powered lithium-ion batteries developed by Yet-Ming Chiang in 2001. Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who’ve solved an important part of one of science’s mysteries: the key to antigravity.

The HUVr Board team ultimately aims to improve the efficiency, speed and sustainability of mass transportation. Yet rather than spend several more years closed off from the world while investing in research and development, the team and our world-class investors have worked to change the economics R&D by marketing this exciting consumer product in order to fund ongoing R&D.
