      Song written, produced and performed by John Wizards. Video by Sebastian Borckenhagen. Taken from the single "John Wizards - Muizenberg" (Planet Mu, December 2013) planet.mu/discography/ziq337 And from the album "John Wizards" (Planet Mu, September 2013) itunes.apple.com/us/album/john-wizards/id675223278 Fresh from supporting Jagwar Ma on a UK and European tour, the Cape Town band John Wizards drop the lush 'Muizenberg' as a single. Taken from their critically acclaimed and eponymous debut, the track exudes southern hemisphere sunshine with a warm guitar figure sending a gentle bounce through the track. Lead singer John delivers a gentle falsetto before the track drops into a scuffy bass coda. Beatmaker extraordinaire Seiji turns a gentle piano line that you barely notice in the original into the centrepiece of his mix, running rhythmic, crunchy kicks and snares alongside bubbling filtered effects. On the flip The 2 Bears create a thing of beauty. A slow, rippling mix that's absorbed all the sunshine of the original, turning it inside-out and building the track up gently over a slow house beat, before dropping in gentle repeated vocals over the epic nine minute timespan.

          Song written, produced and performed by John Wizards. Video by Sebastian Borckenhagen. Taken from the single "John Wizards - Lusaka By Night" (Planet Mu, June 2013) http://www.planet.mu/discography/ziq331 And from the album "John Wizards" (Planet Mu, September 2013) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/john-wizards/id675223278 01 Tet Lek Schrempf 02 Lusaka By Night 03 Limpop 04 Muizenberg 05 iYongwe 06 Finally / Jet Up 07 Maria 08 Jabu Ley 09 Jamieo 10 LEUK 11 Durvs 12 I'm Still A Serious Guy 13 Hogsback 14 Lushoto 15 Friend John Wizards might have started in Maputo. It also might have started in Cape Town. It certainly owes a debt to Dar es Salaam. These are the three places that band leader and producer John Withers either travelled through or lived in, that he feels have had a marked influence on his musical output. They also happen to be cities in which Emmanuel Nzaramba, John Wizards Rwandan singer has lived too. Since John and Emmanuel first met, John Wizards became a band and are now based in Cape Town, South Africa and 'Lusaka by Night' introduces this rich band to the world. The single is a beautiful mix of the traditional and the futuristic as Emmanuel Nzaramba’s pitch-corrected vocals intone, in his first language of Kinyarwanda, about the Children of Africa coming together over the lightest of highlife guitar riffs and subtle pools of echoing synth and warping bass. 'I Is' follows, sketching out a lazy melody of stumbling, wobbly keys, between snapping rhythms. Next up is Ital Tek’s techno remix of album track 'Tet Lek Schrempf', looping up the original’s lush conch shell melody and bent synths into a joyous rush. LV take 'Lusaka by Night' and turn it into a warped slow jam, reversing and punching out elements of the melody over tough subs, letting the pitch corrected melody spill out over the drums.

            Design Indaba’s “Converse Represents” 2014 Music Circuit roared across the sonic spectrum with 38 acts playing their hearts out at 10 venues spread across Cape Town. There was something for everyone: electro, hip-hop, dubstep, Afropop, drum 'n bass, jazz, soul, cosmic rock, Afrotronic, folk, Afro-Jazz, Afro-beat, ghetto tech and house. And if that wasn’t enough, Yasiin Bey (better known by his former stage name Mos Def) made a surprise appearance too. It’s about experiences, collaborations, having fun and giving fresh local talent a platform on which to showcase their talents. Two nights of audio adventures and pumping performances on 26 and 27 February 2014 called on the talents of acts such as BLK JKS Soundsystem, Okmalumkoolkat, John Wizards, Card On Spokes and Nonku Phiri playing at The Piano Bar, The Assembly, Orphanage, Jade Lounge and The Waiting Room, among other venues.
