Freshly #FridayFeels: WHY NOT NOD



Freshly #FridayFeels: A fresh playlist/chosen album set to come out every Friday, curated by a different producer/band, where just like radio, at least 90% of each mix will be LOCAL MUSIC and/or original material. The Freshly entertainment coordinator, MC-FF, is on the hunt for the best stuff out there.

#2: WHY NOT NOD: Dapper in Dope Matter (FREE DOWNLOAD)


Graeme Lloyd and Roland Brown are WHY NOT NOD. Having spent their days recording live sound, from a ball coursing through a pinball machine, to a front loader on a construction site, to a car-rim hitting the ground and spinning over, and then over again.

They have spent their nights understanding and processing these sounds, using them to create warm, organic music with analog synths in a recording studio in Hout Bay. Besides being great music in a genre inspired by hip hop, rap, dub, electronica and more, Lloyd and Brown create a unique platform that enables each and every person to hear and understand the music in their own way through the unique associations the unique sounds evoke in them. What does a rim clacking bring to the surface for you? A crane lowering to pick up rubble? The sounds of a pin ball machine?

Associations may be positive or negative, but the beautiful thing is they unearth your own deep personal connections to the music. An experience that isn’t always possible for the listener in an increasingly synthetic world and music industry. Strive to be original, strive to take a brave turn within your work, and like these two artists, you may create something refreshingly unique and exciting.

They’re set to start performing their album live soon. Where do YOU want to see them play?
