The eyes of the world used to pass over South Africa. It’s wonderful that this has changed. Now, bands like JAM JARR are able to get their due attention.
A collaborative side-project of GLITCH HOP MC, BAKAMAN, and EDM producer, SOUNDPROOF. Both are accomplished and established Cape Town artists. Together, they’ve been gaining international attention, for their fun, bass-heavy, mid-tempo slammers, infused with an obvious sense of whimsy. A natural favourite of mine is their contribution to the Z JAMZ canon. I don’t usually support tunes that violently speak out AGAINST my Living Dead peoples, but ZOMBIE GUTS is such a grimey pump up, that I’ve welcomed it into the collection.[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/43420019″ iframe=”true” /]

These guys are quite eloquent and witty. Check out what they had to say about the plight of the modern musician: “If you want a life of financial security and solid future prospects, don’t pick up the microphone, and take your fingers off the decks. The digital age has made it all the easier for independent artists and labels to get their music out, but it’s also meant that music is usually lost in the sea of all the other crap that’s flying around, let alone the gargantuan quantities of music itself. Still. Some things are just too good to pass by, so here we are, riding the wave of digital uncertainty, and over-abundance. Godspeed to us all.” Well said, boys. I’m right with you on this.
Aint nobody gonna get MY zombie guts!
