Scene City: For the love of house music

2012-11-17 13:40

Everyone loves some juicy gossip, and half of those who attended DJ Euphonik’s Total Blackout listening session at VIP Room in Sandton on Tuesday night expected to see some fireworks.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) there was no Your Girl B (Bonang Matheba) to provide the hot goss, so the awkwardness was avoided.

Instead, the event focused on the 5FM DJ’s latest album.

“We all know this has been both a good and bad year for me with all the stuff with my ex-girlfriend,” he said.

With that out of the way, Euphonik introduced the musicians who contributed to his 26-track album including popular house-music vocalist Lolo of Uthando fame; Phumeza; and hunky Shota, who had the ladies screaming when he flashed his abs while performing his hit Seng’khathele.

When singer/actress Phumeza took to the stage wearing a gold sequined blazer and high-waisted shorts, it was the guys’ turn to be mesmerised.

Pity Chomee, who was also billed to perform the vocals to old-school kwaito group Jack Knife’s Uzobuya Nini, which Euphonik remixed for his album.

“Chomee was supposed to be here but apparently there’s something wrong with her throat,” Euphonik said about the singer who had been rushed to hospital for emergency surgery to remove infected tonsils.

Singer LeAnn Dlamini took the party to church with her rousing performance of Get Lifted.

There was also an abundance of DJs at the party to show their support and entertain the intimate crowd: Dj Lulo Cafe; Culoe De Song; Naked DJ, who looked the opposite of naked in layers of clothes in the sweltering heat; Sphectacula; and many others hid out in the dark corners of the club.

Needless to say, there wasn’t a shortage of good house music so anyone who left early like I did, only did so out of self-preservation.
