Metalloid Lab Productions is proud to present the launch party for D.N.A -the new collaborative album between their in-house producer, Arsenic and the gifted MC, YoungstaCPT.

Both Arsenic and Youngsta raised themselves on hip hop and it has, as a result, become entrenched in their D.N.A. At it’s core, the album pays homage to genuine hip hop that remains true to it’s purpose and has been untainted by commercial interests. With August 2013 marking the 40 year anniversary of this incredible genre, there is no better time for the release of this sincere celebration of hip hop.

The night will also act as the official launch of our small sound and music company, Metalloid Lab Productions. We will therefore be showcasing some of the amazing young artists that we are currently working with.

Date: 29 August 2013
Venue: Ragazzi Live Bar (7 Loop Street, Cape Town)
Time: 8:30pm – 1am
Cover Charge: R30

It’s time for another dose of Jitsenic

26/07/2012

Fresh from his show in Grahamstown, Cape Town musician Jitsvinger presents Jitsenic at the District Six Museum on Friday 27 July, 2012.  

Jitsenic, Jitsvinger’s latest formula combines his rhyme styles and guitar-playing with the sample triggering, finger-drumming techniques of Arsenic (Gary Erfort).

The upcoming Jitsenic performance will introduce its newest member, Andre Hope, who will be completing the ‘sound-system’ by adding savvy bass grooves to the mix. Consisting of two sets, the show features Jitsvinger who will be switching moods from acoustic guitar and poetry to electric guitar.  Those who know Jitsvinger’s repertoire can look forward to hearing familiar classics such as ‘Smile’ and ‘Doenit’ from his debut album ‘Skeletsleutel’,  as well as new unreleased tracks he has been working on with Arsenic.

Jitsvinger mastered his art form through successful projects like Khoi Khollektiv, Rogue State of Mind and the critically-acclaimed Afrikaaps, which earned various awards and rave reviews, both locally and internationally.  All of these projects experimented with different modes of expression from storytelling to word-play. In this spirit, Jitsenic features a fusion where old meets new South African sounds, with the audience being taken on an artistic, lyrical, and music journey.

Tickets cost is R60 and available from Thursday 19 July, 2012, at the District Six Museum.

UPDATE: JITSENIC – Combining Arsenic and Jitsvinger

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE VENUE HAS CHANGED TO RAGAZZI DUE TO THE FIRE AT IBUYAMBO

Guitarist and hip hop artist Jitsvinger (Quintin Goliath), and hip hop producer and beat maker Arsenic (Gary Erfort)- collectively known as Jitsenic – will again join forces on Thursday May 24, at Ragazzi ,33 Long Street The iBuyambo Music and Arts Exhibition Centre, for a live set of experimental trigger rhythms coupled with a combination of rock, blues and Cape jazz.

Audiences can expect an eclectic, though futuristic mix of experimental sounds influenced by home-grown Cape jazz pioneers, as well as the golden era of hip hop.

The idea behind the music, says the pair, “Is to use familiar sounds, but to take those sounds to an unknown place while still relying on our skills to redefine the way that local music is created.”

Arsenic will bring to the fore finger drumming techniques and will trigger samples to create layers of sound adding to Jitsvinger’s poetic rhythms and jazz-influenced guitar-fuelled performance.

The night will see a special performance by Cape Town-based LnJ (Jill Levenberg and Razak Johnson) – two theatrically trained poets, singers and songwriters. This is a must-see performance, not to be missed.

Jitsenic will perform at Ragazzi ,33 Long Street The iBuyambo Music and Arts Exhibition Centre, 11 Bree Street, Cape Town, on Thursday May 24, from 9pm. Entry is R30.
