All words | Custard X

Molweni, hoe gaan dit and wassup boet, my names Custard X – positivity sharer, entjie enthusiast and all-round UltraMal naai (it’s like a pun).

We House Sunday’s is without a doubt my favourite event in Kaapstad. There is a family aspect that is easily identifiable, no matter where the venue is the atmosphere is contagious – We House culture is an actual nomma. Anyways, I try to attend all of them thanks to Kurt Krieger – a regular ex-aiya who’s been around so long he might as well be the founder (he’s not, though – Leighton Moody, Cassiem Latief & David Dix are).

I was properly excited to experience a Kid Fonque inspired We House Sunday’s. With a line up that boosted the likes of Charles Webster, SIO Live, Lawerence Dix, Irshaad Samaai and the man himself, Leighton Moody.

I expected a natural progression of sounds from soulful/jazzy house to the DEEPEST of the genre – getting jas flashbacks here – and that’s exactly what we got. I shared the dancefloor with an intimate crowd of familiar faces.

What I gran most is perching myself right in the middle of all the action, that way I can dala 360 degree circles the whole night and ask everyone for an entjie.

Driving through Langa is a surreal experience (if you’ve never been) and a major culture shock. Having visited the same venue prior for Boiler Room, I knew what to expect. Langa is like a mini-Soweto (not my words). The residents are friendly, honest and mostly excited to have visitors. Just don’t go walking around by yourself after a certain hour or your face will end up on a milk carton the next week.

We House is a platform for small businesses to sell their goodies to hungry jollers. Very lekker feeling knowing that you can walk out the dancefloor at any time to a spread of home-made delicacies. (Basically catered for me.) I chowed 11 chilli-cheese samoosas, ouens. 11. I don’t know the name of the lady who sold them, but if you do – please plug me. (For those who attended).

I must note that not once did I feel unsafe. Granted, the event did finish around 10ish, promptly. Security was friendly and on point!

It is safe to say that I am eagerly anticipating the next feature of We House Sundays. I smaak that warm energy. You leave the dancefloor fully recharged and ready for another full week of life.

I’m Custard X and I consume papsak, regularly. I also respect women, regularly. You can find me at a We House near you, every month, until I eventually expire or start teaching English in Thailand.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
