Hansa launches at TSJS

From 22 July, Hansa Pilsener drinkers everywhere can enjoy the same refreshingly different taste of Hansa, in a new refreshingly

different bottle.

Hansa Pilsener will be launching the new bottle for the first time in South Africa at Thesis Social Jam this weekend, three weeks before it breaks in trade nationally.

Be the first to drink out of the new embossed Hansa Pilsener bottle!

SCRATCHA DVA [Rinse FM / Hyperdub] & LV [Keysound / Hyperdub / Soul Jazz]

BROADEN A NEW SOUND and VICE Magazine teams up for some Future Bass &
Township Funky with 2 of the London Underground's most forward
thinking DJ/Producers:


Joined on the night by special guest MC,

FLETCHER [African Dope / Krushed & Sorted]

SCRATCHA DVA [Rinse FM / Hyperdub]

SCRATCHA aka DVA is involved in everything to do with today’s British
underground electronic music scene. During the height of grime he
worked with Wiley and more recently with KODE 9’s HYPERDUB.

His record bag boasts the timeline of British rave culture from jungle
to present day. Always an informative set, DVA favours upfront and
left of centre music over yesterday’s tired hits. His fans include
Kode 9, Sinden,
Roska, Mary Anne Hobbs and Appleblim.

Since 2005 Scratcha has hosted ‘Grimey Breakfast’, the flagship show
on international tastemaker station Rinse FM, playing everything
relevant to new British electronic music, from funky and dubstep to
d&b and all associated cousins. His role at Rinse means he’s inundated
with new music from the very best of established and up & coming
artists across the board. Scratcha prides himself on blending many
genres, uniting dance-floors of all tastes under the rave culture
umbrella. When it comes to dance music, Scratcha is the man in the
know with his finger firmly on the pulse of the British underground.

Recently he remixed SPOEK MATHAMBO's "Don't Mean To Be Rude" (released
on BBE overseas).

LV [Keysound / Hyperdub / Soul Jazz]

Kode 9 cohorts LV are Will Horrocks, Simon Williams and Gerv Gordon, 3
>> musician/producers based in South East London. Over the last 9 years
they have released their music on labels like Keysound, Hyperdub,
Hemlock, 2nd Drop, Soul Jazz, Ramp & BBE. They work closely with
vocalists Joshua Idehen, Errol Bellot, Dandelion, Okmalumkoolkat,
Spoek Mathambo and Zaki Ibrahim.

In an LV DJ set, little attention is paid to tempo or genre, ranging
from hip-hop beats to worldwide house sounds, to dancehall & rootsy
dubtep rollers and garage to kwaito. The common thread is the
infectious energetic future rhythms and lots of bass.

***Gerv will represent!***

Last year's township funky anthem "Boomslang", featuring our own DIRTY
PARAFFIN's OKMALUMKOOLKAT, joined the dots between the UK underground,
Bass music and Kwaito. Meanwhile 2011 saw their new album, “Routes”
(Keysound Recordings) released to critical acclaim. "Routes" is a
collaboration with poet Joshua Idehen, in which he provides a
fractured narrative, sketching multiple journeys through an imagined
