system_of_survial

House music is pretty popular in Europe and one of the longest running pairings System of Survival is over 20 years old. The pair of Alex Carpentieri and Pietro de Lisi has been working together since 1989. The duo is so close, they even live together and they say the secret of their success is keeping it real.

“Our system is to be true. To be real. Enjoy our job, be professional and avoid all bullshit. That’s the only way to survive,” the duo said during an interview with “ibiza-voice”. The DJ’shave been working on a new album which they expect to release some time next year.

The album will feature some collaborations but the pair are keeping tight-lipped on exactly what those will be. According to System of Survival, who recently signed up with Safehouse agency, they never prepare a playlist for their gigs and because of their eclectic music tastes and mental connection.

The group’s last album “Needle & Thread” was released in 2012 and a year later are still pleased with it. The pair said the music is their roots not club music and are pleased that their fans understand it. System of Survival has been playing around in 2013 travelling toSouth America where they played on the beaches of Peru.

British music taking on a South African flavour

British_music

House music is being described as the biggest thing in South Africa for young people and now it is catching on in Britain and influencing musicians in the UK.

House music is as big as hip hop used to be in South Africa and is very commercial heard in shops, taxis, bars, parties, and on mobile phones. Some of the biggest names include Brothers of PeaceOskidoBruce Sebitlo, and Black Coffee.

House music first evolved from the Chicago club scene in the 1980′s, made popular in discotheques catering to black and latino communities before moving to DetroitNew York CityNew Jersey, and Miami. It then made its way into Britain but now the music is taking on a different sound – the sound of South Africa.

Soul and funk are major elements but so are percussionbass drumsynthesizer bassline,electronic drumselectronic effectspop samples, and reverb.

In Britain the music was first influenced by black dancers doing a move known as “foot shuffling” or “cutting shapes”. It became part of mainstream pop and dance worldwide since the 1990s.

House music is very popular in the Midlands and north of England in Manchester,Birmingham, and Nottingham but has also gained a foothold in London clubs.
