The new single from Ben Westbeech...
Bio:Iasked my friends to mail me some childhood memories. i received many funny and beautiful, poetic and absurd stories: a girl who would box around the corner before walking because it might be dangerous to walk and bump into some dangerous being. a boy who believed the actual idea of clouds passing by was to provide us with a beautiful image. the danger of the toilet witch who would grab you and pull you down into the toilet if you sat on it too long after flushing. and many more.. so there i go with some playful little songs. (as it appears on here myspace page)
Oy uses a mixture of sounds and squeaks, frog ribbits and human voices. Her style is a mixture of soul, hip hop, spoken word, improv, electronic, jazz, classical and rock. (...) This album would need thousands of listens before one could hear every nuance, but it’s definitely worth your time!'
In barely a few short months DJ / producer / song writer QB Smith has clocked up work with the likes of Atjazz, Mark de Clive-Lowe, Jose Carretas, Monique Bingham, Simbad and Brian Temba.
How does someone manage to work with so many great people so quickly? Truth is that QB has been doing this for a while, with the likes of Spinna, Karizma, and Louie Vega declaring themselves past fans - it's just the name that's new. A gift from South African friends, QB stands for Qhawe la Bantu. For QB, it's a baptism in his home away from home.
The new single 'Selfish Skies' features a stunning remix from Atjazz and has already been snapped up by Vinny Da Vinci and the House Afrika label
But while it's the house mixes that you're most likely to hear this month in the clubs, Warm Days, is actually QB's soul, jazz, hip hop and broken beat collaborations project, bringing in some of the best musicians, singers and MCs from the world underground.
With those interests, it's not surprising that beyond his DJ sets in the house world, at more eclectic affairs like Thesis Social Jam, South Africans can expect to hear the full range of diverse and downtempo stuff that influences QB's Warm Days project, including a whole heap of music you will not hear anywhere else.
