Wie’t gesê musiek mag nie fun wees nie?

17 Sep

skeletons love musicAlmal is so freaking ernstig.
Oor alles.

Snaaks genoeg raak mense omtrent moordadig morbied juis oor een van die dinge in die lewe wat veronderstel is om jou beter te laat voel: Musiek.

Ja, daar is plek vir meer ernstige musiek, en verseker is daar ‘n groot verskeidenheid genres wat verskillende mense se gemoed opkikker. Dieselfde tunes wat my laat smile, beinvloed nie noodwendig jou gemoedstoestand nie.
Waarop dit neerkom, is dat as jy van iets hou en dit maak jou happy, luister dit. As ek nie daarvan hou nie, kan ek dit maar net ignoreer.

Een van die bands wat baie flack kry van die morbiede musiek mense, is Dans Dans Lisa. Hul tunes is lekker om te luister, nie TE woes ernstig nie en oor die algemeen laat dit mens nogal goed voel ook. Hulle gaan waarskynlik nie opgeneem word in die Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nie, maar so what. Ek like hulle.

Case in point: Die orkes, bestaande uit Deon Meiring (van Glaskas faam) en Bouwer Bosch (Straatligkinders) het vandag hul nuutste musiek video gelaunch. Hul roep hom “Ons Teen die Wêreld”. Dis gevul met over the top corny acting, moonbags en tweelinge. Verder is dit net eenvoudig ‘n lekker tune om te luister/kyk. Ek het gelag, en dit het my dag sommer beter gemaak.

 

Wat dink jy van die video, of my sieninge? Glo jy dat musiek eerder super ernstig moet wees?

Van Coke Kartel – Môregloed

4 Sep

Van Coke KartelDie eerste single van Van Coke Kartel se volgende album, Bloed, Sweet & Trane, is hier… en sommer met ‘n video!

Die song se naam is Môregloed, en as dit enigiets is om op te gaan, maak dit my net meer opgewonder oor die volledige album wat volgens die band op 5 Oktober beskibaar gaan wees.

Wat dink jy van die video? Drop ‘n comment en deel met jou vriende, want jy’s nice…

Christiaan Kritzinger- Commercial isn’t always crap

4 Apr

I do not like Afrikaans sokkie music.
At all.

I find it unbelievably intolerable to listen to and as a matter of fact I barely classify it as music. This rant will probably get it’s own post at a stage. However, the main point is that I don’t like it, mostly due to the lack of any artistic integrity, creative input or musical ability with which these “hits” are mass produced.

Christiaan is a predominantly Afrikaans,  South African musician. Growing up in a very musical family, he decided very early in life that he wants to become a professional musician/performer. He has had a very interesting journey, one that is reflected in the songs he wrote all through his life, to get to where is now.

Probably the biggest problem that Christiaan has had to face in his career, is to  find the balance between making music that will sell and thus put food on the table, versus maintaining his musical integrity. In my personal opinion he has managed to do this perfectly. Writing intelligent lyrics and putting it to a catchy beat, or even challenging the listener with a slightly more evolved song progression while keeping the listening easy has been one of Christiaan’s greatest achievements to date.

Making his mark in the music scene in South Africa has led Christiaan to various interesting experiences. Amongst others, he was in the top 10 of the first (and only) Afrikaans Idols competition in 2006, he won the Huisgenoot Tempo Songwriter of the Year award in 2009 and has enjoyed quite diverse media attention, not just for his music but also for his lifelong journey in overcoming dyslexia and overall for being a nice, friendly, charitable guy.

He does a lot of private & corporate functions, but if you’re lucky you’ll still see him at a pub entertaining the masses with his own original works as well as energetic renditions of well known songs.

Here’s the official music video for “Asem”, one of the radio hits off of Christiaan’s latest album, “Mal Vir Jou”. It features the well known actress/presenter, Angelique Gerber.
