Legendary South African artist Sipho Mabuse creates another milestone in his career with a 1st time ever performance at De Waal park in Upper Orange Street Gardens.

on Sunday 3rd February from 2pm with the Rudimentals and Mmino who performed with Sipho last year at a sold out Baxter Concert Hall in October 2018.

Sipho remarked their are so few place to perform in major cities and when the organisers approached my manager Martin Myers ,I had no hesitation in saying Yes
Why not do different places he said.

We are playing in a band stand that goes back many years The Concerts will be staged in the original Edwardian bandstand which was manufactured by Messrs Walter McFarlane & Co of Glasgow and presented to ‘the corporation’ in Cape Town by the Traders-Market & Exhibition Ltd. London in 1904.

It was moved from the original exhibition space in Green Point to De Waal Park some years later.

“Want what you can’t have” is the brand NEW Summer, Dance/Club single, by Cape Town Singer-Songwriter, Roeshdien Jaz. It’s a fresh, dynamic dance track with suttle depth. The song speaks of how we… “Always seem to want what we just can’t have”.

“Even though she has a man, you still pursue your plan. “It’s a shame even though she knew, all the things he puts her through, cause she wants what she can’t have. It ain’t clear to me it’s a mystery, life always seems to be, a search, a hunt for what we always want, that’s never meant to be.”

A must have in your ‘SUMMER 2018 PLAYLIST’ to get you dancing, or that ‘adrenalin’ pumping on the treadmill at the gym. Remixes in the pipeline featuring  Cape Town female emcees, EJ Von Lyrik, Burni Aman and Shame (Godessa).

Available on ALL major digital platforms, worldwide. Roeshdien’s, much anticipated Debut Album 8 years in the making, is set for Digital release in the first quarter of 2019, called ‘The Contradiction’ (Every Mood).

“This body of work is a special tribute to life, an all it’s many beautiful contradictions”, says Roeshdien.

SIPHO “HOTSTIX” MABUSE is making a call to all musicians in South Africa

MEX Endorses Empowerment

MEX chairperson and board member SIPHO “HOTSTIX” MABUSE is making a call to all musicians in South Africa to not only attend MEX18, on 1 and 2 September in Cape Town, but to all opportunities to cultivate the broader education in our collective music economy.

“As chairperson of MEX, which is now in its 8th year, I implore musicians, managers and all music business owners to attend the KZN Music Imbizo in Durban this week, and then MEX18 the week after,” Sipho implores. “We then have Moshito, in Gauteng, thereafter. If you are in one of these centres, get there! I raise this urgent call as we have a crisis in education around the local and global business of music.”

Sipho’s known and respected as someone open to sharing his experience, committed to empowering everyone in the industry that’s afforded him an extraordinary career. “I had a question the other day, from a music school graduate that floored me,” he shares. “Even with all of their class teaching this person questioned what was more important, a publisher or a publicist? That question scared me and drove home the fact that music conferences are a critical supplement to any text-book training.”

Sipho Mabuse

“It illustrates, with alarming accuracy, the lack of life-skill, real and applicable lessons from some of South Africa’s most established tertiary education institutions,” Sipho concludes. “This is where the likes of MEX, Moshito and the KZN Music Imbizo play a critical role in empowerment.”

MEX18 will play host to a truly global list of speakers and aggregators, the likes of SAMRO, DEEZER, RISA, THE ORCHARD, MAHOGANY and JOOX. Each is a critical local touch point in any career in music, all who will be active and participating at MEX18.

Add to that extraordinary partnerships and key international relationships, MEX18 welcomes back Abbey Rd Studio’s CHRISTIAN WRIGHT to the fold for a second time.

With MEX18’s focus around all things digital, including the streaming economy, CHRISTIAN, along with MAHOGANY’s MARK MURDOCH will be unpacking the relationships between record labels, managers and the audiences they each appeal to.

THE ORCHARD’s Vice-President (France, Benelux and West Africa) BEN OLDFIELD will also be flying in especially to talk at MEX18.

MUSIC EXCHANGE will also be hosting showcases. By attending MEX18 you will be in front of all three international speakers, as well as SA artists including RJ BENJAMIN and the keynote speakers, including publishers the calibre of DAVID ALEXANDER and JOHN FISHLOCK.

Whether you’re an established or ambitious young artist, publicist, producer, DJ, manager, venue owner, record label, agency or corporate brand looking to gain invaluable insight and learnings every delegate can actively apply and benefit from, MEX18 is the creative hub responsible for bringing it all together.

Digital monetisation in the new music economy, through to masterclasses dedicated to key disciplines, MEX18 will once again offer it all.

MEX18 will be hosted at the impressive Academy Of Sound Engineeringstudio complex, in District 6, as well as Sun Square, Mill Street, Gardens over the jam-packed two-day imbizo.

With more speakers and events to be announced over the coming three weeks, in the build-up to MEX18, follow us on Facebook to get breaking announcements as they happen.
