Alfa / Binary



Come on, get in the car, let's cruise to LA and hang out with the Binary crew. They're throwing a mad party downtown with LexiconDon, Keenhouse and Alfa playing slam jams.

Let's focus on Alfa right now cause he's got a new release called Sky Patrol and it's actually Alfa's first original release since his songs that were on Binary's compilation, LA Lights.

Word on the street is he's been working with various singers, guitarists, and session players for his upcoming release so we can expect even more exciting things from LA's most exciting dreamwave crew...

Braai 4 Heritage



It's the 24th of September and the spring is alive in Southern Africa... It's Braai Day, a national celebration where everyone gets round the fire and fries their meats, eats and celebrates the upcoming summer!

Since the Football World Cup was already a huge succes for South Africa, there is also another great reason to celebrate their culture: Music. 2010 has been THE year for Zef-music with acts like Die Antwoord, Die Heuwels Fantasties and Jack Parow (pictured above) making a huge impact worldwide.

Playmaker has been following this unique and rising scene in South Africa for while and we are proud to make this blog entree on the 24th of September. To find out more about this rising musical culture go check out Wat Kyk Jy en Woelang, homes of awesome South African vibes.

Now go drink some brandewyn and fry some meat by the campfire while blasting this jam, poes!

Totally jamming some Slaughterbrains today. In a unique fashion, this shivering halloween-esque club music is haunting yet easy to digest and perfect to spice up any DJ set. So don't be afraid to use it, here's some jams, all remixes + a Halloween mixtape from last year that gives you a nice impression what Saughterbrains is all about. Keep an eye on this talented DJ/producer, he's working on an album and tons of remixes as we speak.
