Cape Town Hip-Hop legend Jitsvinger drops first EP in 10 years
Jitsvinger is putting his whole hand back into his music.
The last time the Cape Town musician dropped an album was Skeletsleutel, in 2007.
Not that he’s been lying dormant in the years since, but he’s been keeping himself busy with a myriad of other activities like his activism, theatre and performing around the country as well as breaching international shores.
He has collaborated on work with artists such as Jack Parow, Arsenic, Benjamin Jephta, YoungstaCPT and many more.
He has never abandoned music, in contrary these years ‘away’ has brought him new inspiration which has led him to release his latest 5-track EP, called Jitsologie.
Fans will see Jits sharp as ever, with high precision yet with the effortless flow they know so well.
Jits so good!
His latest EP is a fusion of boom-bap, jazz and Afrikaaps (yes, it is spelt correctly) lyricism.
From his boom-bap (“Breinsuiker,” “Hoe Lyk Hulle,” Doenit” remix) or jazz-influenced production with no drums (“Smile” remix” or trap (“Skiroemba”,) there’s something for all of his fans to adore.
Apart from ‘skitting’ his skill, the rapper shares stories of hope, pain, and if you are ‘oppit’ enough to understand Afrikaaps, you will revel in his witty wordplay and storytelling abilities.
Jitsologie features the stylings of Claire Phillips, Roksha, YoungstaCPT and Monox.
Jits will be travelling to the Netherlands on the SA Roadtrip: Celebrating Life Tour.
Catch him at the District 6 Homecoming Centre in Cape Town on the 28th of October for the launch of Jitsologie.
