In the past few months that the blog has been running we have given so many other local and/or underground artist some exposure. This doesn't necessarily ensure an artists fame (especially if the artist is relying on whatever promotion we provide instead of self-exposure aswell). However, this does build an esteem and draws a crowd to your music.
That music Room aims to provide that stepping stone for non-recognized artists and expand the fanbase of Famous artists.
For those who would like to have their music featuredon the blog please email email@example.com with a brief decribtion of your music and a samle downloadable track that the blog will showcase.
Spread the word and get your music out there.

Both Personally and Professionally I could mention alot of things that impressed me about the track especially the collaboration and overall theme of the song not to mention the quality of the sound and the actual beat. Very catchy hook I must say, definately on that international standard of music with capabilities of improvement.
To keep things objective, I'll let you listen and comment or give an opinion...

Was listening to one of their songs 'Meteor' and I expected something a tad bit chaotic (no offence to the group) but what I heard was utterly impressive. The beat was great and I feel related well to vocal and content as well as the way this was all presented and put together to make the track.
The only hurdle I had was that the beat volume seemed to overshadow the lyrical content whereby some words sounded a bit like whispers.
Overall, I really liked it, very refreshing to say the least. Group effort was evident and it all come together beautifully. In fact it's groups like these that deserve the recognition so holla at their FaceBook group Here

PoetX or P-X has a track called 'Fcuk Green Goblin(Spiderman)' and with a title track like that I was immediately interested. Listening to the track I wasn't quite satisfied with what I got until a certain line toward the end hit me...
I'll let all of you listen and comment on it.

My all-time favorite DJ Fresh track out of all the classics, club bangers and just too fresh mixes and tracks that he's had Summer Daze has to be the Ultimate best in my eyes/ears. I loved it back in primary school when DJ Fresh was the only DJ we knew, I loved it in high school when we snuck out the house to go party and hearing them play that song would make the hiding worth it and I still love it throughout varsity as it holds so many memories that even pictures couldn't portray and I truly believe that's what his music does.
This post was written entirely as a dedication to DJ Fresh's major contribution to House in S.A as we know it.
Which reminds me of what he said when I asked to post something on him and I happened to refer to him as a legend, he said "I hardly think that I am a legend! Not yet at least :-)"

Ya'll know I'm on Twitter right? If you don't, hit the button on the side bar and follow me hahaha.
Ok so I was on Twitter minding my own biznizzz when @CoolKidMenzi mentioned he was going to be on @HarmonixEnt's show on http://www.rhythm100radio.com/ so I decided to listen, you know how curiosity is. When I finally got to here his music I was in shock at first because initially he seemed like a HipHop type DJ you know? (don't ask why) but anyway what I was hearing was not only House music but it was really good House music and its his own stuff.
Now I know there's a difference between 'being able to mix other peoples music at a party' Dj and 'Making your own compilation' Dj and both should be appreciated differently but I especially give props to making your own music and this was something else indeed even though it was just samples. I had to ask him for his item just to post for all of you, so you can hear what I'm writing about.
Now I can't wait for an album... I hope there's an album... Please let there be an album coming...

Besides that fact, the song really is great and his collaboration with Tyga really brought out the best in him, even though I'm not so enthusiastic about Chris' rapping on other songs he shares with Tyga.
The video I totally loved, the black & white as well as the simplistic theme does the video justice and of course the dancing, which I personally thought was a tad bit too much as he practically danced to everything but then again it is Chris Brown...

So I was listening to the 19 tracks + intro and outro that are included in this mixtape and at first i asked myself "why the hell is he rapping over American beats?" so i pretty much responded to every single track that way.
Then I got that 'aha!' moment when i decide to listen again this time focusing more on the rap abilities of the artist and how he was able to flow to a different and already used beat.
Although this does not really prove originality but it promotes skill and rap capacity as well as versatility and so i based my review on those reasons.
Let me start with the Rude Boy remake. Firstly, the singing really threw me off a little but the rap made a recovery and I feel that there should have been more of that in it.
I personally loved the Interlude, as short as it was, in fact I wish it was a full track the beat and what The Konsept could have have brought would've been too ill.
I loved track 9- Konsept is back, the flow and the fusion of his rap into the Nicki Minaj- massive Attack beat i feel he did really great.
Overall there where disadvantages due to high expectation that one may have regarding the beat used but judging by the lyrical content and combined flow, The Konsept has that rap versatility and should really include that as well as creativity in his next mixtape.

Truly South Africa's HipHop talent is raw but in abundence, the featured track I find to be more professionally sounding, well composed/put together AND it has ClubBanger potential. I'd like to see this getting more airplay on local radio stations and the likes.

Okay kids, an EP stands for Extended Play which is usually released before a full album just to give the fans a taste of what is coming. Now you know...
Real name Kiernan he is South Africa's Best New Comer according too our very own Hiphop award ceremony, The Hype Awards. AKA is part of The I.V League the production powerhouse known to produce the illest HipHop music. He has has finally released his EP titled 24/7/366 which consits of 12 Tracks including most likely popular hit "Do It". I had a chance to listen to his work and I must say, I really am impressed. Now it wouldent be fair of me to review music without giving valid reason right? well here goes...
As a whole, the EP is Explosive! A versitile mix of different concepts/experimenting with different beats really comes together to enhance the lyrical content which is also on it's own level,from tracks such as "High School Cool" & "In My Walk" to "Cant Wait" & "Out like That" but one track that i feel everyone can relate to is "Mistakes".
I was most impressed by track 05- 'I want it all' featuring the likes of Pro and Khuli, it really has that vernec mix which is blended almost perfectly with the beat making a sick flow. This is one of the tracks you blast full volume in your car driving to the store just down the road!
The standard set here is a high one and his full album should meet and surpass this.

That Music Room, a blog which explores the sharing of musical ideas and opinions according to preference. This can range from House, RnB, HipHop, Kwaito, Classical and the likes, both locally and internationally.
That Music Room is about having fun and enjoying the music as if it had a life of its own, it's also about giving up and coming musicians the opportunity to broadcast their talents and find favor with the audience the same way musical legends do.
What I hope to acheive with this blog is unity through music, something that everyone loves no matter the genre and if we can all relate on that level, whats to stop South Africa from producing music at an international level?
So feel free to share opinions on what YOU like and what moves your soul or what makes you dance.
