Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

DirtyFunk (Credit: Manni Photography)
Ladies and gentleman, we bring you DirtyFunk. Straight out
of Goodwood, Cape Town, comes the freshest new addition to the South African
music scene in years. The trio, consisting of Angelo "Elvis" Taylor,
Dale "Chief" Johnson and Andre "Triple Threat" Machent,
have been working their magic since 2010 and are now ready to take on the
world. "We've been working hard to create a following and we feel ready
now to burst onto the scene. It's going to be big," says Dale Johnson.Although considering themselves down to earth guys, they're living the rockstar
life that blends in with their unique style and sound that is breaking the
conventional hip hop/electro barriers. Performing over 70 shows to crowds as
big as 7 000 people at some of SA's most respected venues, DirtyFunk is quickly
establishing themselves as the group to watch.
Their first official single, Rockstar, is set to hit radio stations all over the country
in September and features the zef Afrikaans rapper Jack Parow. "These
young guys have a lot of heart and killer beats. Working on this track with
them was such a kief experience. Definitely keeping my eyes on them," says
Jack Parow. Listen to their new track, HERE!
