New Music Video. Miss Celaneous – #CheckMeOut.

Last Friday saw the release of a new hard-hitting drop from Cape Town MC Miss Celaneous, with the video for ‘#CheckMeOut’. Directed by Jean Daniel, filmed by Young Photography and edited by Malatskovic, CheckMeOut was filmed in The Trap, on the South of Johannesburg, the track being a remake using a Nipsy Hussle beat with the same title.

Interview with Mia Chaplin.

1
Mia Chaplin, a Cape Town based artist, has been making waves in the local art scene with her interesting style and magnificent paintings. We decide to throw a few questions around her style, some of her influences and what she plans to achieve with her art. Where is your style of painting inspired from and what was the process you went through to get to where you are now stylistically? Edvard Munch has remained my favourite painter since high school. I have always been drawn to moody expressionism and I think I’ve spent the last few years trying to figure... Read more
