ETC Crew


ETC Crew is the Cape Town-based, multi-racial, cross dimensional hip hop rap outfit that you might’ve already heard of. Fuelled by their own fresh yet energetic, jazzy, head-nodding hip hop sound, they are on a mission to fill a cultural and musical gap in the South African music industry. Not content to be followers in the game, they would rather do it differently, making changes on their own terms, armed with the kind of quality beats that speak to your feet and a highly comedic lyrical flow that is completely contagious.

ETC Crew is the Cape Town-based, multi-racial, cross dimensional hip hop rap outfit that you might’ve already heard of. Fuelled by their own fresh yet energetic, jazzy, head-nodding hip hop sound, they are on a mission to fill a cultural and musical gap in the South African music industry. Not content to be followers in the game, they would rather do it differently, making changes on their own terms, armed with the kind of quality beats that speak to your feet and a highly comedic lyrical flow that is completely contagious. ETC Crew is here to re-adjust any kind of attitude that says hip hop rap is strictly for gangbangers. ETC Crew was officially formed in 2000 in Cape Town, South Africainitially as a graffiti crew.

After a short-lived career in the arts, original members White Nite and J-Filter turned to music as their salvation. Not too long after that Emcee Logical arrived, making the duo a trio all of whom enrolled at the Cape Audio College to further their knowledge of studio production and recording. Then they met the 4th and final crew member - Bonsai Bush, erstwhile vinyl junkie with an ear for production. Performances and Tours Hard work began on crafting a kick-ass live set and it wasn’t long before promoters took and the paying gigs started rolling in.

Highlight shows included stellar performances at the Mixtape Flavour 2 event at Zula Sound Bar (29 April 2006), Live and Direct at Orchard Bank (15 June 2006), 2 MCs and Some DJs at Zula Sound Bar (29th July 2006) and Royalty: A Night With The 3 Kings at Zula Sound Bar (9th September 2006), FOC Brother Hood: A Hip Hop Showcase at Mercury Live (14 September 2007) and Moroka Swallows 60th Anniversary at Moroka Jabavu Stadium Johannesburg (13th October 2007), to name a few. In the space of a few short months ETC Crew had notched up performances alongside some of South Africa’s top hiphop, rap, rock and Afro-pop acts including Freshly Ground, Lungelo, Watkin Tudor Jones & DJ Fuck, Unit.R, Jitsvinger, DJ Azuhl, Perspektif, Shy Guvaras Band, Damn Right, Mochines, Ashtray Electric, 12th Avenue, Van Coke kartel Dirty Skirts and Dream Soda. Proving they got game ETC Crew entered - and won - a hip hop contest organised by Street2Street in October 2006, thereby beating off stiff competition from ten of the Mother City’s fiercest ruling hip hop crews including Writer’s Block, Archetypes, Piet Potent and the Dark Lords. Winning the title saw them jetting off on a 10 day tour of Copenhagen, Denmark where they performed no fewer than seven shows to hundreds of eager European hiphop fans. The largest crowd being around 2 000 people at Denmark’s legendary Den Gra Hal (a.k.a. The Gray Hall). ETC Crew’s track The Effect has seen some major rotation on local radio stations UCT Radio and Bush FM, also appearing on the SA MP3 charts (www.samp3.com) twice, the first time reaching the number 6 slot for 3 weeks in a row! The track was subsequently re-mastered and shot to number 3 on the Top 30 SA downloads.

Early in 2007 ETC Crew was asked to submit a track to the Big Love Productions’ CD compilation Antics From Under The Table (a compilation featuring only the freshest urban music acts from around Cape Town). In June 2007 ETC Crew entered the studio to begin recording their debut EP. This features 12 tracks and is destined for big things on the local and international hip hop market, with more radio play and high reaching chart positions expected everywhere their brand of infectious hip hop music is heard. The first single from the EP is available for free down. load http://www.24.com/entertainment/play.aspx?s=musd&i=766729 ETC Crew is: Johnny Filter - Johnny Boshobana (Beatboxer/Producer) White Nite - Aran Neidhardt (DJ/ Producer) Logical - Martin Plaatjies (lyricist/Mc) George Bush aka Bonsai Bush - Jacques Barben (Producer) www.etccrew.com http://www.myspace.com/etccrew http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/pages/ETC-CREW/6930962498?ref=ts Read more on Last.fm.
