yeah... i've probably got some bushman heritage in me too somewhere along the way....

and i think it is about time that SA psy goes back to its real tribal roots......

ey'?           Mind my mind.

intence tribal jamming nourishes all our progressive needs,we jam hard on a other tribes' music ,but when our senses
sense wild mystical africa
all your sences come ...alive....outside ~ ....to the sound of
an open fire
birds calling.
hyenas laughing.
lions warning.
some spooked zebra's yelping,
drumbs delving.
some swazi being appreciated

on the subject of using afrikaans voice samples, i believe twisted system used an old apartheid-day sample in a track at the easter vortex...

"vis are an illegal gavvering" etc etc

wasn't on the floor at the time, but what a super idea...sure beats the "the police are hear we have to turn the music off" sample imo, and is more believable than a guy with a uk accent on a local dancefloor!

nice ... these are the kind of sounds that make me think of home too...

plus, in the cape:
winds gusting,
waves crashing,


and on the highveld, the sounds of those incredible afternoon thunderstorms that always leave the air smelling clean and new and fresh.

Twisted System,its good to see you guys read the boards,Cant believe it,you guys read minds as well, posted a thread earlier sugesting using different distinct south african vocals, and gave an example of Stander, etc, before I went to vortex I made a track as joke, using that exact sample "This is an heligal gathering" with the afrikaaner sergeant with that exact vocal that twisted system used,couldnt believe it, the exact sample in their song, ahoy to you guys, was totally freaked out keep it going... p,

haha would love to hear some of this spoken-of boerre trance, where can i get it ??

Yeh Ive always wanted to hear some tribal drumming stuff coming from SA, theres so much power in the local native instruments used in ritual etc... gotta love that basss

Though guys give Shift a break let him do whatever he chooses at a producer, no need to jump onto a talented producer....shift et al have done a whole lot to get south african produced psy trance on the map in the first place!

Respekt!

I've always dug the whole kalahari, african vibe. I remember hearing that Chemical Brothas tune at New Years "It Began in Afrika". I don't really dig the tune but I remember the whole dancefloor was on a really good vibe then. I would dig to hear more artists experimenting with local sounds. However Talamasca did that on Wind Up and I don't think it works that well. I think it came off more "Lion King" than the scorching tip of Africa.

i have a different way of looking at it... different parts of different languages have different phonic qualities... [just think of the difference between a sultry spanish sample, versus a gruff afrikaans or germanic/nordic sound] and in the end it's all about what pictures the sounds evoke in your brain... the 'soundscape' as it is known.
personally, i thinc the SA scene has a sound unlike anywhere else, a product of all the producers being in close proximity to each other, but isolated to some extent from other influences. (although there has always been international trance available here...)

I thinc that Twisted System is the perfect foil to offset the capabilities of Afrikaans as a phonic stimulus,,,, it carries the correct tone across to complement the mood created by the music.
You feel the fear of living in SA in those times. In that way, it has filled it's intended role perfectly. Remember, this is the work of three Caucasian lads, voiceing their disapproval of the way things went... it affected everyone.
As for movie samples, i feel that if the sample says exactly what you want, then why try and do it different, there are enough tools in the music-maker's toolbox to make it totally unrecognisable anyway... bit of delay, a high cutoff filter and a bit of EQ'ing and you have mickey mouse for instance... anyway there are many sounds other than movies to choose from, and voices can add a percussive quality in a track if correctly applied, the possibilities are endless... why limit yourself ?
in the end, what i'm trying to say is it's all about the sounds in the end, and i'm all for tribal voices and harmony, and the infectious beat of the Djembe drum... that is the true sound of africa, and it is up to the artist to interpret that as they can though their own life experience.

I don't really think when they stuck in the sample they were trying to make a political statement But you're right about the sounds and the images they evoke! I still haven't actually heard the track but I've heard that it goes off

Well I think experimentation's the way to go... so what if a few tracks go horribly wrong... you can still find a masterpiece or two.. tribal vibes in psytrance always works for me           The Distance between Insanity and Genius is measured only by success
