You are invited to get unatamed with me!

After a pretty extended DJ vacation over the end of 2012 and the start of 2013, I'm right back into things and more excited about DJing than I have been in years. I could tribute this to the new headphones I picked up in The States or maybe the discovery of Mitzi. Honestly though, I think it's just got a bunch to do with the string of awesome shows I've been asked to play. The next episode in this string of awesome is coming along on Saturday night!

Last week I played Cape Town's Untamed Youth with the lovely dudes known as Tommy Gun and We Are Awesome. This Saturday we're doing a bit of a sequel for our Joburg friends! With yet another awesome flyer by Haasbroek, Untamed Youth will be making it's monthly Joburg appearance at Great Dane and your friendly neighborhood Sassquatch will be right there for all your high-fiving and ass-shaking needs!

Good weekend: Gateway Drugs

You are invited to Love is the Drug

This is so exciting, I'm not even sure where to start.

The sheer awesome-fest that is Disco de Moda is back and they are kicking off the year with a serious bang! For DDM's first show of the year, they're flying South Africa princes of synth-pop up country. That's right, Gateway Drugs are coming to Gauteng!!!

Since this will be the first time the band make their way up to Joburg, you'd be forgiven for not knowing Gateway Drugs. If this is the case I can not urge you strongly enough to head here and download the band's fantastic debut mini album. Also, if you missed it last year, here's their first music video:

Disco De Moda head-honcho Data Takashi has picked out a great lineup of supporting DJs, including the man himself as well as your humble narrator and friendly neighborhood Sassquatch! All in all, it's gonna make for an incredibly awesome night of disco dancing and synth-pop. For your own well-being, I can't stress enough how important it is that you make sure you're part of the fun!

You are invited to tie Knotts and say Yes In French.

Now that I'm back in the business to telling you to come out to see awesome things; here's what I am very excited about doing tonight!
Knotts is an entity that started life as the solo project of Nicolaas van Reenen from Bateleur. You may remember his incredible EP Wrestlemania that we put out on SMACM last year? You don't know what I'm talking about? Well then head here and save your soul from eternal damnation!

Knotts, which sees 3 of the most excellent people in all of Cape Town joining Nic, has, since it's inception, grown into it's own distinct project. Needless to say I am SUPER excited to see them doing their thing.

The second act of the night, Yes in French, will be another new live experience for me. The side-project of Sebastiano Zanasi of the lovely Christian Tiger School, I've heard all kinds of promising things about this project and can't wait to experience it first hand.

So, all in all, this is gonna be a really special night. Come by and say hi and RSVP here!

P.S. As I type this the guys are saying funny stuff and playing good music on Assembly Radio. Tune in here!
