The Spoken Word

Perpetual motion… Movement at its best… The hipster trend which took the world by storm… Unorthodox as it may seem… Hippie Mafia are no laid back duo with such a flavorful mission statement… “No holds barred… Fun”. Two of the most diverse individuals who have taken SA by storm and with their combined efforts have touched the hearts of both locals and internationals alike. Trust in us when we say that the humble, yet energetic journey of Daniel and Josh is in a constant evolution and in turn lead to some of the most intense memories… The funday specialists are at your service!

The Scoop 

1) Three Words To Describe Hippie Mafia

Daniel & Josh: Funky, Groovy, Bouncy.

2) One Collaboration You Guys Always Wanted To Do

Daniel & Josh: Mystical Complex has been a big inspiration to us since we started, and we feel that his unique sound alongside our funky style can really result in something really interesting.

3) Which Artists Should We Look Out For Locally & Internationally

Daniel & Josh: Locally – Kaoss Kontrol, Thorne, Jahmanji, Key To Insanity, Frankinsense & Sensitive Sound… Internationally – All In One, Samra & Amadeus.

4) Favorite Release of All Time

Daniel & Josh: Most people would probably assume Splish Splash – but actually our personal favorite release – which was actually the Title of our last album released on Alien Records (Brazil) – is Circus Of Misfits.

5) What can we expect in the weeks to come?

Daniel & Josh: We are aware that we have been quiet this year but we have both had a lot on our plate. We have just purchased the new version of Cubase and are renovating our studio over this December period. We have 2 or 3 releases nearly ready due for release in early 2019. Daniel & Josh: We have come thus far and are now pushing to take Hippie Mafia to the next level. We have played in Australia, Switzerland and Brazil so our focus for 2019 is to get more International recognition. We will do whatever it takes to travel this world doing what we love.
