In Conversation With Hannah Faith: On her beginnings, her new brand & her upcoming Weheartbeat gig in Jozi

We recently caught up with London born and bred multifaceted creative and Soulection affiliate, Hannah Faith. Known for her eclectic and worldly sets, she has built a strong brand for herself in the electronic beats and dance music scene and what makes her journey even more special is that she leveraged the internet’s power of connecting people to solidify her brand. Hannah Faith has grown far beyond the DJ world as she has added weight to her name by fully breaking into photography and visual arts. We speak to her ahead of her performance and showcase at the 7th anniversary of Weheartbeat in Johannesburg this Friday.

What drew you to this industry? If you could bring awareness and change within the industry, what would it be?
The music, all I’ve ever aspired to do on this musical journey is to discover and share. I started off DJ’ing because I wanted to curate mixes and share them with my mates. I feel sharing music is a very intimate process, it speaks from your soul without having to put anything into words and so that’s what I truly fell in love with. In this industry, I’d just say scrap the ego and be yourself. HAVE FUN!

What do you personally consider to be the incisive moments in your career? What measures do you take into making these decisions?
Making decisions that align with my soul purpose, as an artist, it can be immensely draining and detrimental to my creative process if I don’t consider the type of events or work I’m agreeing to. From the music lineup to the location, to the compensation, it has to align with my self and my worth for it is after all my energy I am giving.

How would you describe and rate the music and art scene of the city you are currently living? How do your surroundings influence your art? 
To be honest, I haven’t been too active in the art scene in London as of late, I’ve been a hermit using this time to focus until I feel inspired again to step back out.

Tell us a bit about the selection process for deciding on what your artistic approach is in pursuing new ideas and concepts? What sources do you draw from for inspiration?
I meditate a lot, I listen to my body and I listen to my heart. When it comes to my creative process I follow my gut, I cannot force this process, any ideas that come into mind I write them down. My life inspires my artistic approach.

What is your view on platforms like Weheartbeat and how important their contributions are in the culture and music scene?
Art is life, without it, the earth would be a very dull and uninspiring place, platforms like Weheartbeat are important for our culture to keep documenting the times and providing spaces for us to release energy and bring community together.

What are you looking forward to from the upcoming event?
I am looking forward to connecting with the people, dancing, raising our vibrations and having a good time.

Please recommend two artists/DJs/MCs/beat-makers to our readers which you feel people should look out for.
K Le Maestro his style is soulful yet bouncy I really like his music. Also my homegirl Lynda Dawn, an upcoming artist from London bringing that soulful funk back.

What can we look forward to from you in the following upcoming months?
More visual work. I have a brand, Delika, I’m working on which centers around, healing and wellness through design, music, travel and sacred wisdom work. Of course expect new mixes from myself too.

Thank you to Dominique and Sims for continuously supporting me on this journey, their hard work is appreciated highly. Much love and lets rock for WHB 7 year anniversary!

Catch Hannah Faith this weekend in Johannesburg.

#BringYourFire Interviews: We speak to Cape Town born artist, Dope Saint Jude, Ahead of MTN Bushfire Festival 2019

We’re literally two months away from the MTN Bushfire Festival which happens from the 24th of May to the 26th of May in the Kingdom of eSwatini. Regarded as Africa’s top festival by BBC, the 13th edition of the MTN Bushfire Festival is set to wow its attendees this year with a great lineup which includes acts such as artists, ASA, Mr. Eazi, Blinky Bill and more. This year, the festival is even more special as it is the Igoda Circuit’s first official festival circuit which will see a handful of artists tour Southern Africa — hitting eSwatini, Mozambique, South Africa and Réunion Island.

We recently caught up with Cape Town born artist, Dope Saint Jude. Now based in London, Dope Saint Jude first broke into the scene in 2013 with a fresh approach to rap music. After consistently releasing great singles, Dope Saint Jude’s rise to prominence became undeniably and she started frequenting the West more to play shows and tour. In the international arena of music, Dope Saint Jude has firmly cemented her name and brand as one of the most innovative, progressive and boundary-pushing. Check our conversation with the ever-impressive artist below.

You have travelled the world as a result of your work and calling in music, what is the one thing you love about performing in Africa?
I love performing in at home because I can connect closer with the stories I tell. The audience also has better understanding and context of my narrative and that makes me feel closer to them.

What is the one thing, lesson or experience do you want people to get from your music?
I want people to feel comfortable in their own truths. I strive to be honest and authentic in my music, which can be difficult in this industry. But I hope that by staying true to myself, others are encourage to do the same.

If you weren’t in music, what do you think you would be doing right now?
I would probably be acting or working in film production. I spend a great deal of time conceptualising, producing and often editing music videos, so I believe that is what I would be doing if not performing.

What are you looking forward to see or experience as you are going to be on tour in Southern Africa?
I am looking forward to experiencing my fellow South African artists performances. I am looking forward to joining up with my band.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how important would you rate the importance of the Igoda circuit in the African live music space?
I don’t think rating a platform does it justice. Platforms that create opportunity for artists are invaluable for not only the industry, but for society.

What can Bushfire Festival attendees expect from your set this year?
They can expect a great live set with a thrilling performance from the band and I.

Lakuti: On her moving to Europe, her achievements, Uzuri Recordings & more

Forward-thinking, creative, fearless and innovative are some of the words you can use to describe South African born DJ and entrepreneur, Lerato Khathi – more popularly known as Lakuti. Having been based in Europe for over twenty years, fulfilling different roles in the music industry, she has built up a strong name for herself in the international dance music scene.

After spending so much time building and improving the independent dance music scene in the UK, she has rubbed shoulders and collaborated with some of the world’s most respected and celebrated dance music pioneers such as Larry Heard, Boo Williams and Juan Atkins, booking them for events and giving them a platform to share their artistry. As a DJ, she has showcased the strength of her ear by appearing on platforms such as Boiler Room, Worldwide FM, Plastic People, Fabric and Panorama/Berghain Bar.

Her work as an artist manager, booking agent and event curator is rooted in her passion for introducing new talent, sounds and ideas to the masses. Inclusivity forms a big part in her work as a creative entrepreneur. Now based in Berlin, Lakuti continues to disrupt the international dance music scene with her groundbreaking ideas with her partner, Berlin-based DJ – Tama Sumo.

We had a short Q&A with her ahead of her performance at Kitcheners on the 11th of January. Check it out.

You moved to Europe in the late 90s and have built up a solid name for yourself in the international DJ space. It is without doubt that you have a storied career. What do you feel has been your greatest achievement?
I moved to the UK in March 1997. For the first four months, I was based in Newcastle before moving to London where I was based for 15 years right up to the end of 2011. I went to the UK with 400 pounds in my pocket which vanished in no time. My greatest achievement was to forge an independent path for myself,  being able to start a label and establish the Süd Electronic parties and bring artists such as the godfather of techno, Detroit’s Juan Atkins, Lil Louis, Boo Williams amongst many other celebrated international artists and often bringing artists that had never played in the UK before, was something I was very proud of. To be able to also organize these parties for 11 years and provide something that was truly alternative and inclusive is something I am very proud of.

You seem to have a very multifaceted approach to creativity and the business of it. How do you balance being a business person and a creative? Or do you view everything as one?
I have a holistic approach to work and day time working as an agent representing other artists. I work in a creative field therefore even in the office we are always striving to bring a fresh and creative energy to what we do. Embracing the new and change all the time without losing our roots and focus.

Many South Africans that are aware of what you do are very clued on your work as one the main people behind Uzuri Recordings. Please tell us about some of your other projects or roles in the global music industry.
Apart from establishing and running Uzuri Recordings solo, I work as an agent. I founded Uzuri Artist Bookings & Management which turned 10 years old in 2018 and I am very proud of our roster. Very happy and humbled to have been given the opportunity to programme Panorama/Berghain Bar, one of the internationally celebrated clubs since 2015 alongside my partner Tama Sumo. I’m also happy to have launched a new music and culture (particularly focused on live music as well as culturally relevant  discussions) platform, ‘Bring Down The Walls ‘ alongside Tama Sumo, which we launched back in September with a live performance by the Legendary Larry Heard who featured Mr White. Tama Sumo and I also run a series of events very sporadically in London under the banner ‘Your Love‘. We are actually bringing Your Love to Cape town on the 19th of January to Wonderland club. I have been truly humbled to be able to travel the world as a DJ as well. 2018 was good to me, I got to do more than 90 gigs which saw me play festivals and gigs throughout Europe as well as touring the USA.

You are set to perform at Kitcheners alongside Maria McCloy, SNO and Tama Sumo. How important do you feel that such events are for the South African scene?
I love the approach that is being pushed at Kitcheners which is striving for visibility for everyone not just men, so that is important. It enriches our music community. I love the fact that this is such a diverse line up musically as well. There is so much good music out there that needs to be celebrated and it is a shame to me to not absorb it all as a music lover. The tendency to just focus on genres instead of absorbing the rich music tapestry in it’s full glory is a great modern tragedy.

When playing gigs at home, what do you aim to give or express through your sets to the people in attendance?
When playing at home I hope to break music that people may not be too familiar and to bring a different approach that may not be hugely popular here with hopes of bringing something new to the table.

Catch Lakuti performing alongside SNO, Maria McCloy and Tama Sumo at the coolest bar on the khona.

Premiere & Interview: Manthe Ribane & Okzharp speak on their new album, inspirations & future plans

South African performance artist and model, Manthe Ribane, is ahead of her time. A pioneer and creative trailblazer of note, Manthe Ribane effortlessly shifts culture by fusing different mediums of art. From dance to design to music, she fearlessly introduces new ideas to the masses. Through her art, she gives you hints of afro-futurism, places cultural appreciation at the forefront of contemporary art and presents creative design thinking. She is complex. She is present. She is fearless. She represents women of all types (cis or queer).

However, she is no island. In her journey of artistic excellence, she works with some of the best in the game. Like UK producer, Okzharp, who through consistent collaboration with Manthe, has managed to pioneer a new sound and wave. A sound and wave that is earning the duo global acclaim and praise. After release two EPs through UK based label, Hyperdub Records, the duo set its sights on working on an album. Defying borders, logistics and busyness of life, they recorded an outstanding collaborative effort which showcases how much they’ve grown as artists. Fusing sounds  that are more prevalent in the UK with those that are authentically South African, they created Closer Apart – an album which embraces growth, change and artistic progression.

The thirteen track album is electronic and futuristic in nature. With this album, Manthe placed her femininity as a focus while Okzharp designed a sonic experience which prompts the listener to think of the future and its possibilities. The production on this album ranges from soft to hard, and fast to slow, and this is purposefully done to communicate the big idea of the project. The African release of Closer Apart was handled by Black Major Release in conjunction with the global release by Hyperdub Records.

We spoke to Manthe and Okzharp about Closer Apart to find out what inspired the project, how the project came about and their future plans. Read our interview with the duo below.

Please share a little background on who you are, how you came up and something people

Manthe Ribane: I am art, I am Manthe Ribane, I am the from the world and Soweto. I was firstly introduced to music by my ears and my late parents instilled good music in me. I was really blessed with amazingly brilliant parents who always believed in me. 

Okzharp: I got my artist name from Okmalumkoolkat. It was a phrase that he and we used all the time on a tour we did back then. He and Spizee gave me loads of music and I did a mix called the ‘OKZharp mix’. Then someone asked me to DJ and I needed, so I needed a name. 

How did you two come together to create music in the first place?

Manthe Ribane: After years of honing my gift of dance, my conceptual and fashion design skills, I started touring with Die Antwoord. Right after the tour, I came back to South Africa, I got a call from Chris Saunders for a meeting and also an introduction to meet up with Gervase Gordon aka Okzharp.

Chris was talking about a film that they had written called Ghost Diamond and I was selected as to be one of the actresses to have a main role in the film. Six months later when we started shooting the film, Okzharp came up with an idea to record a soundtrack for Ghost Diamond. I was over the moon, filled with joy. We started recording. That was the birth of my musical journey – first EP, second EP and now an album. 

Okzharp: We had finished shooting for the day and everyone went into town to celebrate, but Manthe and I stayed in Chris’ studio, an airy, old marshmallow factory in Maboneng. I had a nice mic but no mic stand, so we taped it to the upright of the bunk bed. Dear Ribane was the start.

Watch the amazing, animated video for Kubona.

What is your working relationship like? 

Manthe Ribane: I love the power of collaboration, you consistently grow and learn. Our working relationship is very professional and we both believe in each other’s opinions. Respect is the main tool to keep the progress alive. Okzharp is a musical genuis and he’s constantly creating new, future sounds and he also has the power of working with people who are always thinking ahead.

Okzharp: We’ve figured out a way to work very fast and we also learned that we need to trust our instincts.

How has your creative relationship and cultural exchange developed since the work you did together in 2016?

Manthe Ribane: Touring a lot internationally and now we’re preparing to Afropunk New York.

Okzharp: We have learned to move faster to make time move slower.

Can you share a little about how working on Closer Apart was like?  

Manthe Ribane: Hard work!

What was your favourite part of making the album and which song is your favourite in the album?

Manthe Ribane: I love Kubona. The song talks about self reflection of the diamonds in all us and to be honest, I love every song.

What did you set out to achieve with Closer Apart? Is there a bigger, more deeper message that you were trying to communicate?

Manthe Ribane: Trusting your process of your own journey, and inspirational music for the future generation.

How difficult was it to collaborate to make this piece of work between two countries?

Manthe Ribane: Hard. But we kept on seeing what’s ahead us and the people who believed in us helped.

Okzharp: N​one of the songs were recorded remotely. They were all made together in the same room. There were times when this was a challenge but ultimately we were quite lucky because we had a couple of shows last year, so we were able to keep making new music around those tours.

[Manthe Ribane]: How do your other creative skills feed into your music and how can we see or hear it on this new project?

Manthe Ribane: Art is a home with different rooms, music, fashion, dance, colour, film, photography, and more. All these elements come alive through our visual communication.

[Manthe Ribane & Okzharp]: Is it frustrating to have assumptions made about your creative work? Things like the man being the designated producer,  the woman as the vocalist and performer? [Manthe Ribane]: You had a lot of input in the production right?

Manthe Ribane: Yes, I had a lot of input with the production side, it was powerful.

Okzharp: M​anthe was a co-producer on this album. She selected sketches and helped change them, arrange them, develop and finish them with the vocals.

[Manthe Ribane]: What’s your relationship with Hyperdub? How does it feel to have the relationship that you do with a label with so much history and to work with Okzharp?

Manthe Ribane: It’s such a powerful dream to be with one of the most highly respected record label in the world.

Why do you think South African sounds have been embraced worldwide, but in London especially, in recent years?

Manthe Ribane: Africa has always been the ghost writer of the world and I believe in time the world will start crediting us. But regardless of that, it’s beautiful to witness the appreciation.

Okzharp: S​ome great music and some great artists have come out of South Africa over the last few years. Some of that music slots into some of the London vibes at different points, but London is its own thing, I’m not sure what’s happening here.

How much input did you guys have for the visuals of this release? How did you come up with the aesthetics and creative direction for Closer Apart?

Manthe Ribane: Team work makes the dream work (sounds cheesy). We worked with Chris Saunders, Deon Van Zyl, Nirox Sculpture Park and Hazard Gallery. We really wanted to invest more on the visual aesthetic, so the work may remain more timeless.

Okzharp: And dream work makes the team work. The cover image was taken by Chris Saunders in between takes on set at the Closer/Apart film shoot for our Nirox artist residency. Chris took a lot of photos that day but I remember having a feeling about that one.

Africa has always been the ghost writer of the world and I believe in time the world will start crediting us.

 

[Manthe Ribane]: In the Chris Saunders directed short film, you perform urban dance styles unique to Mzansi. How important is showcasingSouth African culture in your art?

Manthe Ribane: It’s important to embrace what has been rooted for us, celebrate and share the gift with the world.

What do you both have coming up that we should know about?

Manthe Ribane: AFROPUNK New York, Album, Album, Album, Album, tour and new campaign.

PREMIERE: UK songstress, HURU, drops a sensual new single to kick off 2018

London-based singer/songwriter HURU is one of the best black British artists to come out of the UK in the last two years. With her avant-garde style and aesthetic, she draws you in with her aura and her soothing voice. Stylistically, the music she makes could be regarded as alternative because of how it sounds and the topics she chooses to challenge generally do not fit into the general pop mould.

On her latest release, she speaks about love and time, and the understanding that is required to make a relationship work.

We were given the privilege and the honour to premiere this brilliant song which you can stream below:

Connecting two worlds: London meets Johannesburg in an effort to make music lovers #FeelAWay

Music connects people. Music breaks down cultural boundaries and shatters any divide separating humans. A vital social glue that humans need to keep life and it’s craziness at bay. Let’s admit it, humankind is mad. It is ironic how art often humanises man, music being the one form of art that is undoubtedly leading in that regard.

READ: Elliot Boles is a London based producer who doubles as a DJ focused on capturing vibes

Through these connections that are formed by music, lives are changed and the world progresses. One of these special connections happened recently for us when we connected London-based movement -Dégoûtant Collective. A connection born out of genuine respect, similar interests and passion for music. We linked up with Elliot Boles, who is the founder and leader of the collective. We initially hit him up to take part in our campaign called #FeelAWay which has been strategically floating around the internet. We started the campaign off with Johannesburg-based DJ, photographer and videographer IRV BLAMES JAKE, and we thought that Elliot would be a great addition to the campaign because of the immense amount of respect our team has for him. The whole mission soon grew into a collaboration of two rising movements in different music market that far surpassed a temporary campaign.

We look forward to working more with Dégoûtant Collective in future and connecting Africa to Europe.

Introducing Elliot Boles: London-based producer who doubles as a DJ focused on capturing vibes

London is known for being a city that filled with opportunity, a city that attracts people of different cultures which evidently creates an interesting multi-cultural metropolitan region. Apart from being a cultural hub, London arguably has one of the best music scenes in the world and not only that, but unique genres that have been created in the city. These genres, when heard, offer the listener a glimpse of what the city sounds like.

For many years, London has been the main driver of bringing English creativity to the fore. The city has played a crucial role in many of the marquee artists that sprung in the 60s and 70s, who we hail for their innovation. Legendary groups the Rolling Stones and even artists like Jimi Hendrix once called the city home. London, a city with history and a massive impact and influence on the global entertainment industry.

England was one of the first countries to swiftly adopt the new electronic wave that was to take over the music industry back in the 80s. And they haven’t the stop for anything since. Electronic music is a genre or style of music that has a lot of range and can be broken down into a lot of sub-genres. In the case of London, sub-genres like Broken Beat and House are some of the more popular electronic music genres and are loved by the world. The emergence of electronic music has allowed the world to see many young people take up music production and DJing as the tools required for one to be creative are now easily accessible.

Nineteen-year-old creative, Elliot Boles, is one of these young people that have taken to the internet to express himself by using the tools and avenues that are available to him. Being based in a city that produces out quality music is clearly a vital influence in how Elliot creates and curates. Dégoûtant radio is one his projects, where he showcases his DJing and radio skills. The radio endeavor also shows us how multi-faceted Elliot is and highlights his undying passion for electronic music. Chillwave, trap and experimental beats are what you can expect from his radio shows and his productions.

William Florelle brings forth a melange of eclectic sounds in his ‘Two & Three’ EP

william florelle nusoulhub radio
The WotNot collective is known for eclectic, innovative and other-worldly dance soundscapes which have the capability to thrust the listener in a deep musical abyss where the soul is touched and the ears are pleased. The London-based collective has put in a lot of work since its establishment in 2011 and has become a platform where some of the best underground musical talent has come from. One of those talents is none other than, William Florelle, a producer who doubles as a songwriter as well. The music he produces transcends any genre limitation as you are thrown into a medley of different sounds when you listen to his compositions. Will Flo’s productions are a mixture of broken beat, deep house, future soul, jazz and Hip Hop – compositions that are sure to impress music enthusiasts that are hungry for something different.

The UK has always had a booming culture of underground music which has influenced and inspired other regions of the world like Los Angeles, Berlin, Johannesburg and New York. Artists like William Florelle are typically not known and appreciated by many but their innovation somehow indirectly, sometimes directly, finds a way into popular culture. It’s clear that William Florelle still cares about the music and the culture and that could only be the result of the him being entrenched in the rich British culture of music.

Image courtesy of Facebook

In the beginning of the second quarter of the year, William Florelle released an impressive EP titled ‘Two & Three’. The EP contains some of the most beautiful vocals you are yet to hear which complement Will Flo’s productions. The vocals on the tracks are delivered by Lua, who has an interesting way of communicating the themes of the EP. Her voice carries a certain innocence and warmth that gives each song an atmospheric feel. The project has four original songs as well as three remixes by some of the most forward-thinking and innovative artists from the UK, namely MAD VILLIANS and K15 as well as Stefan Ringer aka REKchampa from the US.

Three words to describe the ‘Two & Three’ EP are: beautiful, dreamy and innovative. Truly a beautiful body of work which needs to be introduced to more ears.

Brother portrait releases his long awaited EP – navigate:in limbo

The Nusoulhub Radio team got an opportunity to speak to Brother portrait in early November and we chopped it up about his then upcoming project navigate: in limbo. He assured us that the project would be released before the year ends and he stuck by his promise as the project was released a few days ago.

The eleven-track EP is exactly what we expected it to be and perhaps even more, as it serves as a passage or an entrance to black British life. Imagine the all the experiences, emotions, frustrations and joys of being cut between your African identity and a new found European identity, conveyed in music. The project does exactly that, it gives you an opportunity to see the world the way Brother portraits sees the world and invites the diaspora to look into the many nuances of struggle and existence within the global black community. One is taken on a journey of different sounds and emotions when listening to the project and one receives a front-row seat into Brother portrait’s life.

The EP is a perfect layer of foundation for Brother portrait as this project will serve as an introduction to him as artist to many people. Listeners should expect to be educated on the Black British experience, the importance of holding onto your identity despite where you are on the planet and the value of expression.

We look forward to what he will be releasing in 2017 as a solo act and as part of the Black/Other outfit. He did mention that there might be some new visuals dropping soon. So while you wait for the visuals to drop, listen to the EP below.

Digital Digger’s Choice: Nerija, an all-female jazz septet breaking down stereotypes in the male dominated jazz industry.

London is known for having an incredible jazz scene which attracts jazz enthusiasts from all over the world. The city has over the years had a habit of producing young and exciting talent which eventually breaks into the jazz limelight. In more recent times, particularly from 2014 to 2016, we have witnessed a rise in acts like Yussef Kamaal, Ashley Henry, EZRA Collective, Blue Lab Beats, Shabaka Hutchings, just to name a few. The London youth are carving their own way and expressing how they understand jazz and what it means to them and that obviously comes with a little bit of resistance from the jazz elders. This new generation of jazz artists is powered by a spirit of defiance which one can interpret as a youthful liberation and expression. One band that is not only defying general norms in jazz but also inadvertently breaking down stereotypes about women in jazz is Nerija. In many cases, women that are in jazz are quickly tagged as singers because that has been a common role that many women in jazz have played throughout the history of the genre. Women like Alice Coltrane, Terri Lyne Carrington, Carla Bley, just to name a few who are pioneers in their own right have laid the foundation for all-female bands like Nerija.

V

The band consists of Sheila Maurice-Grey(Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Cassie Kinoshi(Alto Saxophone), Nubya Garcia(Tenor Saxophone), Shirley Tetteh(Guitar), Inga Eichler(Bass) and Lizzy Exell(Drums). Each band member is an incredible artist and this is seen in the way they compose and blend their respective musical skill sets.

Nerija released a self-titled 5-track EP on the 30th of September which acts as an interesting introduction into their sound. The project consists of lovely soundscapes which allow for a transcendence of different types moods and emotions-one can be start with head-nodding and dancing carelessly to being caught deep in thought in solitude or even vibing with friends or family. Yes, it’s that type of project, it can be enjoyed anywhere and everywhere.

You can stream and buy the digital album or purchase a physical copy(CD) below.
