Meet one of Polokwane’s finest exports, Blazey Fresh
He is certainly one of the most memorable up and coming artists we have met in the last year or so. This is because he is both talented and works damn hard to get his name up in lights. We introduce to you Polokwane’s very own, Blazey Fresh.
Blazey Fresh is the pioneer of his own genre of music called Skrapyard Music. It is fusion of House Music and Kwaito with a modern twist, re-engineered for both local and international appeal and entertainment for all ages. And the reason he called it Skrapyard music is because a scrap yard is a place that is full of useful things that are thrown away and not used.
“So basically the message behind it is to say; what’s your identity, what it is that you that makes you different from the rest of the people in the mainstream”.
The music he has dropped since last year are the epitome of the sounds that he hopes gets picked up by the mainstream. He released Dlala last year, which was followed by Onketsang and all of this to make people aware of his musical vision.
He explains though that when he took that leap of faith to create his own genre, it has been challenging because people don’t respond well to something new. But agrees that Dlala has opened so many doors for him and the response to it has been amazing.
There are plans to drop a new song before the year is over and a visual EP may be on the way in 2019.
Gate Crash With Sphaka – S02 E09 (BHPS)
Check out the latest episode of Gate Crash With Sphaka where Sphaka invades the Bacardi House Party Session hosted by Heavy K and Moonchild Sanelly. Sphaka spoke to a few of the attendees such as Darkie Fiction and a few members of the audience and asked about the general vibe and what they were feeling. The responses were positive all around.
As the Bacardi was flowing, we were entertained by a collaboration between Moonchild Sanelly and Heavy K which Sphaka had to find out about. According to Heavy K who had a conversation with Sphaka said that the song only took 10 minutes to make. This is crazy considering how great the song sounded.
