Music channel MTV Base and Klipdrift Premium are planning to take-over Durban with the fiery return of their club night, MTV Base & Klipdrift Premium Urban Smooth Sessions.[one_half last=”no”]Organisers have pinned eYadini Lounge, Umlazi, on Saturday 7 December, and are promising the ultimate weekend chill-out with contemporary urban greats and the coolest DJs.
Whipping up the dancefloor for their December edition are iTunes toppers Mi Casa, house-hold favourite Liquideep and sensation Busisiwa, while DJs C’ndo, Benny Maverick and LAB will be taking crowds into early hours of the morning.
South Africa’s most soulful and creative house collective, Mi Casa can always be guaranteed to deliver the goods, thanks to the combined musical talents of DJ/producer Dr Duda, guitar and super-vocalist J’Something and trumpeter Mo-T. The multi-award-winning trio is currently riding high in the charts with their massive hit album Su Casa.
Back for a second outing at MTV Base & Klipdrift Premium Urban Smooth Sessions is Liquideep (@LiquideepSA). Long after their breakthrough track “Fairytale” first made house aficionados sit up and pay attention, singer/songwriter/producer Zyon and DJ/Producer Ryzor continue to win fans thanks to the deep house grooves nimbly showcased on their long awaited third album, “Welcome Aboard” which hit the shops earlier this year after a three year recording hiatus. The critically acclaimed album, with featured appearances from Idols runner-up Melissa Allison, Nigeria’s Ice Prince and rapper Khuli Chana, has been described as their best work to date.[/one_half][one_half last=”yes”]Rising ethno-house star Busiswa is a new-age performance poet and singer who combines infectious stage energy with an authentically African sound and beautifully hypnotic beats. This message-driven performer has a cosmopolitan relevance and appeal best illustrated in tracks like “Ntombi”,”I Wanna Be” and “Syaphambama”.
Don’t forget to wear your smoothest outfits to MTV Base & Klipdrift Premium Urban Smooth Sessions as MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) will be taping the event for airing later in the year.
