It was a crisp clear saturday evening when Dj Viwe alongside Jacob brought a 21st birthday party to its knees with one of the
best, most unexpected sets the Uber Goblin has ever witnessed. This is how it went down. The local legend Dj Zidane was
ripping the deep soulful vibes, as per usual, with momoth tracks like Revenge causing chaos ekasi. Round about the time Dj Zidane’s set was
reaching it’s climax, something was happening in the background, a keyboard was being setup… a mic stand was being
erected and a djembe drum was being set down, the crowd got curioser and curioser.
Jacob a.k.a Jigga-man, a keyboard player and percussionist based in Vosloorus, South Africa, sat down on a stool just behind the decks and clutched the drum between his knees. Every goon in the crowd was ogling the seated musician, bated breath and an uneasy calm was writhing through the air as Dj Viwe relieved Dj Zidane, who had done his fair share for the night. The needle hit the wax and an electric cool resonated from the speakers, patta ta ta patt, was the sound on lookers heard coming from the drums and amplified by the speakers. dum dum patta ta ta patt, the groove was most certainly set.
With Viwe lacing the beat and Jacob banging the djembe all was trully good in the hood. As if that were not enough, Jacob turned his attention to the keys which got the street in a state, neighbors were peering over the walls to see who the f*ck this kid was, sic. The climax of the set occured when Viwe dropped a schweet accapella of Osunlade’s My Reflection, while Jacob Banged on the drums creating their own Cherry Groove version of the track, I pity the guy who played after Viwe and Jacob. Underground lives, FCK THE FAME.
So if you see jacob, or Viwe in a hood near you… be nice, say hi
