The Rude Kid Carnival took place at Casablanca last month on 26 April 2013, with all the Rude World artists performing under one roof on one night. I was pleased to MC the event and introduce Jerain, Ruby Burton, Jimmy Nevis, Matthew O ‘Connell, Kita, Nonku and The Rude Boys all to stage for a special one hour showcase.
Here is the video, highlighting what an amazing night was had!

Although there have been a fair amount of goat videos making the rounds, I’m not at all convinced that this edit of Daft Punk has any merit. Why internet, why?!
Personally, I’d much rather watch a Taylor Swift or Ke$ha goat edit.
Here’s the official video for Get Lucky. First single from Daft Punk’s upcoming album Random Access Memories. Much better!
Matthew O’ Connell, singer/saxophonist, and Rude World Productions recently shot an incredible acoustic video for MOC’s first official single Take It Slow at Cape Town Sound. The video features Matthew himself on vocals and alto sax, Angelo Syster on guitar, beatboxer Richie Pratt, drummer Frank Paco and the very fortunate Mocsters Hana Kabat and Razaan Philips who won a special cameo beside Mr MOC. Congratulations on a job very well done to the producers and stars of the video, Angelo Syster and Matthew O ‘Connell!
Take It Slow was released earlier this year, and immediately won the hearts of Capetonians and fans everywhere, including mine. To listen to Take It Slow, as well as more of Matthew O ‘Connell’s music, visit his soundcloud page http://www.soundcloud.com/MatthewOConnell
A fine musical career that began at the age of 6, Matthew was signed to Rude World Records in 2012, and since then, a lot more people have been pleasantly taken aback at hearing his unique talent as a singer and saxophonist. You might be convinced you don’t like the saxophone, until you hear MOC perform. Trust me, Matthew is the most talented 21 year old I know!

Kaskade shares his experience at Ultra Music Festival 2013. It really is an emotional video, in a good way. He describes how electronic music has become a global feeling, how the festival has changed over the past 15 years he’s been involved and what a a nice guy he is for filling Calvin Harris’ spot. The track halfway through is his new release Atmosphere. Kaskade has also released his set at UMF for free download. Good on him, that’s how it’s done!
It’s NO secret that I’m a massive Ellie Goulding fan. This track was released at the beginning of April and features on Calvin Harris’ latest album 18 Months. The two of them star in the video together, and there is no escaping their obvious chemistry. As someone commented on the YouTube link “Fun fact: Skrillex and Ellie aren’t together anymore.”
Whatever the story, the video rocks. Released through Sony Entertainment in the UK, I Need Your Love is also charting extensively. UK Singles and Dance Charts, as well as on Billboard in the US and various other countries. Already certified platinum in Australia and gold in New Zealand. Love love love it!
Venice, Italy is where he was born and raised. Night Funk, Cape Town is where you can catch him tonight!
A lot of people ask me what my absolute favourite genre of music is, and what I’d personally choose to play at a gig if it were up to me. Along with a handful of my favourite producers, Marco Lys’ work would be almost the perfect example. His biography describes it so accurately as “electro tinged house” which is the short version.
Just over twenty years ago he began crafting this specific sound, playing many private yet high profile events in Europe where his career began. He is now very deservedly one of the absolute best and most successful men in his field! He has worked for some of the greatest labels such as Positiva, Rising Music, Defected and Toolroom. Marco has found himself in collaboration with names like Chris Lake, My Digital Enemy, Prok & Fitch, Alex Kenji, Michael Gray and more.
What’s also so amazing, is that his Soundcloud page is so up to date. Regular releases, and DJ sets for free download! I’ve scheduled his March 2013 Mixset for my International Closing Set on the show tonight. I’m listening to it as I type… Incredible!
This is the artwork for his latest releae ‘Blue Cream’ which is a mind blowing track! No doubt, I will be featuring it on Electronic Mix Revolution this Tuesday.
