Ayobaness Party Tour! The Sound of South African House

Posted on 02 July 2010 by Julia

Ayobaness on tour! The latest of the South African house craze is touring Germany, making sure that the songs that are rocking crowds in the minibus-taxis from Durban to Pretoria, Jo’Burg to Capetown also move hips and feets in Munich, Berlin and at the festival TFF in Rudolstadt!
Tonight hardhitting basslines from the townships will shake the walls of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin. For all who don’t know: the buzzword “Ayoba” means: excitement!
And yes, we are excited indeed and totally looking forward to the threefold party tonight:
The evening starts early at 6.30pm with the first part of the record release party of the compilation “Ayobaness” presented by the Ayobaness Soundsystem live with DJ, comedian and singer Pastor Mbhobho with his huge Afro and lots of bling bling Kwaito Star “MGO“, with his Pantsula dancers from Johannesburg.
Then the worldcup game Ghana – Uruguay will be shown at 8.30pm. Afterwards the party goes on: no matter which soccer team gets kicked in the ass, Ayobaness will definitely move the audience’s asses!

You can already get into the right mood while listening to the fantastic Riddim Tropical Kwaito special or this cool mix of DJ Zhao and of course by watching this video on heavy rotation:

Ayobaness! – South African House to di World

Posted on 12 February 2010 by Jelka

Ayoba! This southafrican catchphrase, derived in the townships of Johannesburg and expressing excitement or appreciation, seems to be all around at the moment (remember the recent release of the same name by Schlachthofbronx feat. the simply genius Spoek Mathambo & cool girl Gnucci Banana?)
Here is another take on it:

OutHere Records just dropped a teaser EP to the upcoming Ayobaness sampler, featuring some gems of contemporary South African House. House Music is quite influential in South Africa, mainly based on the huge success of Kwaito, itself developed from slowed down house and full of influences from the typical Chicago sound paired with speeches in Xhosa, Zulu or forms of southafrican pidgin english. At least the signing of DJ Muchava by Warp Records set signs for the future of South African House Music in a worldwide context.

The EP starts off with ‘Ayobaness‘ by Pastor Mbhobho (aahemm, something like the southafrican Prince Zimboo, sporting a huge afro and wearing lots of bling bling), followed by DJ Mujava’s “Mugwanti“, another smash hit from the suburbs of Pretoria. Then we got bassy ‘Just in Time’ by Aero Manyelo from Midrand Johannesburg and DJ Steavy from Nelspruit whose ‘Ungazocala‘ offers a mix of ghetto and disco sounds.
Seems like a really nice blend of different styles and approaches, so go ahead and learn more about South African House, here is some stuff to check out:
