“Music has a unique influence on life in South Africa. Even after the big struggle for equal rights in the 80s, where time and again it functioned as a means of psychological warfare, it hasn’t lost any of its relevance in people’s every day lives today. “Analogue (girl) in a digital world”, a quote from the Soul singer Erykah Badu, points us directly to current developments and to the socio-critical questions that move South African and German producers alike. During two nights of clubbing, framed by visual presentations, talks and workshops in Johannesburg and Soweto, the interplay of analogue and digital cultures becomes tangible as a global development. The cooperation with MC classes from the Gauteng province offers an exemplary view beyond, highlighting specific structures that show: music is influenced by life after all.”
