Click this link for part.1 http://jazz42.podomatic.com/entry/2013-02-21T10_48_53-08_00 The Loft is the location for the first underground dance party (Love Saves the Day) that was created by David Mancuso on February 14, 1970, in New York City. Since then, the term The Loft has come to represent Mancuso's own version of a non-commercial party where no alcohol, food, or beverages are sold. Mancuso's vision of a private party is similar to, and inspired by the rent party and house party. Unlike conventional nightclubs or discotheques, attendance is by invitation only. In the early 1980s, Mancuso abandoned the generally accepted and expected practice of beatmatching, preferring to play songs in their entirety on his renowned audiophile-quality sound system, considered to be the best in New York (and among the best in the world) during the venue's heyday.

Well, in the last five years it has pretty much shoved all other genres and styles out of the way to become the dominant sound of South Africa. It is so popular that the the country now has the world's biggest House music market per capita, and this October a Johannesburg-based music company (Bass Breaks & Beats) will organise the first award ceremony dedicated to House music, the South African House Music Awards.
House music took root in Pretoria, South Africa in the early 1990s, then spread to Johannesburg where it was slowed down and combined with local elements to form Kwaito. But if Kwaito was the music that defined the generation that came of age after apartheid, the beats have been ramped back up and South African House music is now more in tune with today's increasingly "globalised" South Africans.
Sometimes called Afro House, sometimes Dance music, South African House is distinctly South African. Meaning what? Ok, we're going to put some noses out of joint by saying this but a lot of "international" House lacks a sense of place, and can sometimes sound like nothing but beats (Techno House is often guilty of this). Fine if you're some off-his-head teenager willing to dance to anything with a fast beat, but even then it probably gets a little samey. South African DJs took what they learnt from Kwaito and applied it to House, which means taking your basic 125BPM and adding elements that ground it in the lived reality of South Africans. Thus you will sometimes hear lyrics in one of the local languages (of which there are 11 if you exclude English and Afrikaans), samples from real traditional instruments (drums, in particular, something integral to African music), and heavier basslines than you might find in House music from elsewhere. A track might use a harmony or melody from an old South African song, and the lyrics, minimal though they might be, will be about something people recognise, something political, humorous, traditional, celebratory, etc. It's party music, but it still ties in with South African identity and history, and has meaning beyond music.
This flexible hybrid is what you'll hear in South Africa's clubs, or if you turn on the radio, take a ride in a taxi (it was through taxis that the early house music compilations were distributed), visit a shebeen or a shisa nyama, basically wherever there's music playing. And with the world's dance music lovers' growing hunger for the "foreign but familiar" you're almost as likely to hear the same sound whether you're clubbing in London or Miami. Which is why the biggest names - Oskido, Black Coffee, DJ Fresh, DJ Cleo, etc. - have been racking up airmiles on the international DJ circuit for the past five years.
As we did with the Kwaito piece, here are 12 of the best from the last few months, followed by some album recommendations. First, though, we tip our hat to DJ Mujava, the man behind the 2006 hit Township Funk. DJ Mujava wasn't the pioneer of South African House - that honour belongs to DJ Oskido and DJ Fresh - but this was the track that first tuned the world into South African House.I'll House You!!!

Roots reggae is a subgenre of reggae that deals with the everyday lives and aspirations of the artists concerned, including the spiritual side of Rastafari and with the honoring of God, called Jah by rastafarians. It also is identified with the life of the ghetto sufferer, and the rural poor. Lyrical themes include spirituality and religion, poverty, Black pride, social issues, resistance to government and racial oppression, and repatriation to Africa. The increasing influence of the Rastafari movement after the visit of Haile Selassie to Jamaica in 1966 played a major part in the development of roots reggae, with spiritual themes becoming more common in reggae lyrics in the late 1960s. Important early roots reggae releases included Winston Holness's "Blood & Fire" (1970) and Yabby You's "Conquering Lion" (1972). Political unrest also played its part, with the 1972 election campaign of Michael Manley targeting the support of Jamaica's ghetto communities. Increasing violence associated with the opposing political parties was also a common lyrical theme, with tracks such as Junior Murvin's "Police & Thieves" and Culture's "Two Sevens Clash".

My dj days started in the early 70s in Queens N.Y. It all began hanging out with the Disco Twins and Nu-Sounds and in school in my electronics & electrical shop class at Samuel Gompers H.S. in the Bronx me and Grand Master Flash was in the same class room and i would go to there partys and i wanted to do the samething but i was closer to the twins and nu-sound so i got my first amp from the twins a soundcraftsman MA-5002 and i started building my system. At the partys where flash was playing the T-connection and where Nu-sound & the Disco Twins played at the Grand Ball Room & The Constellation Disco in the Hotel Dipomat in new york city.
