K-Jo and I on Mix FM 93.8 for SA Pick of the Week Interview

Mix FM chose The Dilemma by K-Jo to be their SA Pick of the Week on September 7, 2018 and invited both of us to their studio in Midrand for an interview. They started by playing the song, then talked to me about Songsmiths before turning to the guest of honor, K-Jo. Due to the poor sound quality of this recording, I have edited out the song, but you can. . .

Songsmiths Ep27 – RazorKutt – MTN8

kwaito duo razorkutt

A few years ago, an opportunity came up for RazorKutt to enter a competition sponsored by MTN (South African cellular network). The contest was to create a theme song for an annual soccer tournament (MTN8). We only had a couple of days to prepare a song to submit, so the guys wrote some new lyrics  to an existing beat and we entered it into the contest. A group of music industry folks and MTN big-shots chose RazorKutt, who were virtual unknowns, to be one of the final 8 artists in the competition!
This video documents their journey through the contest and features their public performance of the track. It was great to see the guys share the stage – and hold their own – with some of South Africa’s top artists.

Songsmiths Ep 23 – RazorKutt – Sgubhu

Kwaito duo RazorKutt

I know it ain’t much of a video, but these guys carry it with their talent, charisma and humor. RazorKutt is by far the most talented Kwaito act I ever worked with and this is my favorite song of theirs. I can’t tell you what it’s about though. Sgubhu means “drum” and I believe they’re singing about the beat…

Recorded at The Cooler.
