DarcTyde Events!

 

 Today we speak to Keith, the owner and driving force behind DarcTyde Events – a local Alternative-Underground nightclub extravaganza! Why did you decide to create DarcTyde Events? We started DarcTyde Events as a means to help promote the South African Goth Scene. We have many talented local Gothic and Darkwave artists, but so few venues are willing to give them a chance. We also simply wanted to throw some of the most awesome goth parties. Tell us a bit about the history of your organisation. We started DarcTyde in early 2001. Our first event would have been a 2-day goth event called Nocturne, but, at the last moment, the person who was funding the majority of the costs pulled out […]

Adam Baroni

 

 Making God’s Bleed. (2014.) Actor, bodybuilder, pro-wrestler, father, all round good guy. Adam Baroni is an up-and-coming British actor and the face of H2N Nutrition. He has big dreams, a big heart, and bigger biceps. (Ladies you may now begin drooling.) Sophie’s Fortune. (2012.) When did you first know you wanted to become an actor? I knew I wanted to become a pro-wrestler AND an actor at the age of 8. The 1986 wrestling movie “BAD GUYS” starring Adam Baldwin & Mike Jolly was the first film that hooked me on the idea. What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I’m different to most actors. I’m more inspired by great people that become actors than the whole drama scene. […]

TAMLA KAHN.

 

 Today we speak to an up and coming South African three-piece rock outfit Tamla Kahn. Now they have an interesting story, coming from a small Limpopo town and relocating to Gauteng to keep up with demand to see them play. What’s the history of Tamla Kahn and origin of your name? John joined the band on 6 February, 2010 and we consider this our official birthday. Before he joined, the band had gone through several working titles, but it was everyone’s decision in the end to call the band Tamla Kahn –Tamla’s full name being Tamla Kahn McMahon– not only because Tamla had started the band, but also because it is original and unique, and we didn’t just want a […]

K-BEREIT!

 

 LESSON ONE. Industrial with glamour -positive sounds and negative beats. That’s what you can expect from France’s legendary K-Beriet.  START RUNNING. History of your project? I met them at a private event in Belgium in 2011. They played 4 songs of their new album, and I really liked it. We spent the whole night together, and we had a lot of fun. We used Facebook to talk everyday, and they sent me songs ans stuff to have new opinions about their music. Dominique was already in his new concept, with the mask stuff and the whole visual part. I asked them to be their booking agent, and we did like 20 gigs in one year. The album was a real success, we […]

Smyth has worked on numerous productions in various roles and positions. Kun. (2012.) When did you first know you wanted to become an actor? What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I guess I’m kind of a latecomer to acting, and film in general really. I’ve had a bit of a twisting path that actually put me onto the film world. I studied interactive design at University after finishing my A Levels (in four subjects that really had nothing to do with film!), and it was that course that let me try out film […]
