Every artists dream life
  • 1 There’s no school for popular music.

What’s we mean is simply that, you cannot study to be a pop superstar or Kwaito superstar or Famous house Dj ,there are some cause on the deejaying but still people who run the game bypassed school .there is no barrier of entry but in the big leagues there is .Money you need to keep investing month after month ,this point make the playing flat which really makes the game fair ,that why they say hard work beat the talent if the talent doesn’t work hard enough..You get to learn more than what you would have learned in school. there are music courses but those artists maybe engineers streets smart is found on the streets and can beat the few months you studied .Here what’s we suggest in every hood there’s a guy that doing better than the most in music and he manages himself, ask him politely without demand and show you respect his time few questions that you lack about the industry then get a little bit of mentorship or stick to this channel.

Dj Swing Radio Promo for FS Tour.
  • 2 You think someone is closing doors for you.

We didn’t want to start with the blame game ,but you look at people who are sacrificing all they have to make their music work and say they’re gate keepers while you not doing anything about your verses ,you don’t buy quality beats , you don’t book a better studio, you don’t want to pay for mastering which is a specialized thing within the music only less than 5 people can do it well in Dbn  and Jhb especially in Dbn .If those people can try to give you a hand ask yourself this are you ready? Do you have something worth presenting? So all we want from people who follow our channel is simply stop looking outside but look inside them. The getting a deal myth artists should stop waiting for recording deals that an old mentality DYI nowadays if you get a deal you need to be good and that deal should balance or be in your favor or you won’t enjoy your life worried about money .Little disclaimer we don’t know anything about deals we just encourage artists about what’s we know being independent, yes its takes time and a bit of paperwork but it’s something we have done and you can do it.

  • 3 Music Artists they respect more their producer who is as naïve.

You get a deal from underground producer and now you have a hope that things will work out .No that is really the beginning unless that producer has build big artists you are starting from the bottom take charge and let your producer focus on the production, do all of the above as we asked you and don’t count on the manager that has no previous artists he managed that you look up too. When we started out Makhula kept on changing the producers and mine was So Long the music work ended up coming 2nd with ULwaz z and So Long because friendship became a priority and we started to care about each other more than our music work that what’s lead to the opening of Spliff Entertainment it’s hard to fight with your friend of music coz someone is getting lazy and you can see the lesson there if you cannot balance the two something must change or you won’t be efficient and that will delay your progress.

  • 4 They think its hard

If in your mind it’s hard to do something even before you start it, you not going to do it. Dismiss the fact that it’s hard to open a company, it’s hard to make a beat, it’s hard to or I don’t have time to go to Samro. You see I had friends that its took them years to sort out free Samro, Samro built the internet portal still they don’t do it, but we did hang out, and drink and so on we had time for that .You see we can work together but if you don’t play your part right and that wont effect me than there is nothing I can do. Loll Other thing I found fascinating news from one of my friend and yourl think all my friends are so unique loll he says my Samro has been blocked because I don’t submit any songs and I was like but bro you always do songs .So at some point we differ namajita some of us believe this is one life we rather focus on one thing and make it work ,others say I want it all well I prefer the 1st and that music it’s should give me all or I’m not looking forward to anything else that is what’s I know to be focus. Can you comment below what’s do you prefer? Want it all now or fix your career 1st?

  • 5 They know they will never make it.

You see ULwaz No Makhula both met at DUT, Durban University of Technology and became the best friends in 2009, Makhula Graduated and ULwaz didn’t. ULwaz in his second year he knew he won’t make it in IT Information Technology and luckily personal challenges came in to rescue him, He was terrible in Coding bugs after bugs by then he was already hooked on music, He would be putting posters in the faculties and using face book to push as what’s he still does today and miss some lectures he’s mind was all over the place, passed some modules though. So in music there are people like ULwaz in IT they know they not going to make it but anyway because they already in there is not going back. We cannot leave you like this we have to give you a suggestion, how about you do a self check and look at your odd or find something else within the music that you might love to do and be good at.

The time we wrote these episodes we didn’t know when we going to release them so, make sure you read the description below or inbox us in the social. Thanks for tuning in we appreciate making the time to all my friends on what’s app I see you ,Makhula allow me  ULwaz is also a hip hop beat maker if you interested have worked with best of the best in SA ,so inbox us about that as well .please press the notification bell to know when we release a video ,hopefully we will have guests sometimes in our show so they would teach you guys ,Music is a practical thing ,is not  a mind thing if you not producing someone is and you are left behind.

  • 6 Bonus Point they can’t focus.

This website is based on our music real life experience so if you know one of us you might be a victim but know we will never put you in a bad light if you realize that is you just self check and improve and if it’s a compliment keep doing it. Back to the point see if you work with us you need to rise to our level we always on to something , other artists spend less than a year with us maybe because too much paying go around or something but the things that push you away  are those that make us who we are .so focus and take the pressure from your peers if they are putting the work ,take the weight or else you won’t enjoy the shine when the time comes .We can get signed today but our momentum won’t go down while we waiting for the new company budget we have our own budget and aspiration so you need to be like that ,don’t be a get around telling people oswing nghlala nabo ,that really doesn’t matter ,win with us don’t stay with us, That why when we record new music it just us no one else except the featured person .If you not going to add value to what’s we are doing you will be a destruction …

Our time is up for a day like the article we will see you on social media LnM  We out.

How to maintain a group work relationship as artists.

  1. How to separate your personal life and music?

Well this is another separate episode but we will touch on it. 1st of all you can’t separate it music is your life and your life is music anything you do is driven by your ambitious goals of becoming a superstar so you will serve your supporters great content all the time.

You need to be always in touch with your friends, and remember each other ideas when you meet again. Be productive when you together because one of you might get busy and you guys have few song or music videos.

I prefer you talk regularly so that you won’t overwhelmed each other by information when you meets always offload and do. Updates each other if someone has a big life event and be considerate of each other even if you feel what’s other person is doing feels like delaying the whole group progress just put yourselves in their shoes then yourl see.

Wize ft Sandile – Boom

Real Hip Hop will never die ,when we still recieve such bars in the time where new sound is overrated Wize decided to remind us how thia ish is done.

  1. 2. Who’s responsible for one another in a group?

Look at this point we are all adults, and if you are your starting out remember this the success of your music will happen with or without your friends or the group you work with right now. I know this above statement doesn’t sit well but its true no one is responsible you all need to show some commitment and others are trapped in this like us. ULwaz in our group its clear there’s nothing I came to do on earth except music so if you in a group like that and one of you maybe wants to be a policeman as well the policeman doesn’t stand a chance I’m just making an example. You can have your job it’s important to help to push your work but if your job is more than your music even when you daydream you say even if I make it I won’t leave my job then you are a problem in a group because your dedication to your job is too high obviously your art will fall short.

I will tell a bit story because ULwaz No Makhula we have a lot in common before we focused on our brand we were doing hip hop and kwahip and kwaito with other friend who somehow left the hustle to their personal lives we are still friends with them but no offense they will never catch us again if they decide to come back and time for what’s we use to do back then  is so scarce its will mean shutting whatever we are doing coz its takes all our time so my point they left their responsibilities as artists and no one could solve that except themselves.

  1. 3 Always show up in the studio, shows, anywhere you supposed to be.

Don’t be bagged by your team to attend certain things if you in 9-5 its understandable but if you at excuses nah ,We all have babies now , we have family now other big artists you respect balance this so well why can’t you ,We all have side hustle and business make time for your big dream. We can create a quote if it’s not out there mnganam saying “If You not your living your dream life now’ yourl never will”. What’s we mean by this is if you not busy as signed artist or independent successful artist who is how they live their lives by constantly releasing , shows , interviews ect now you won’t be able to do it smoothly once you get a deal. You will get tired easily, yourl thing they are exploiting you. Study the game yourself look at videos like this ask other successful artists but they will not tell you much because from the experience people don’t use the lessons they got easily .So Showing up is the key for Dj Swing that what’s made him well know in Kzn he was always there

Every group needs a leader
  1. 4 Respect and tolerate each other.

In Some years in the underground studio ULwaz was recording in Safe Side Records, Dj So Long the producer and a friend said something in the interview we were making as an interlude. ULwaz Asked so how you guys has manage to stay together for such a long time since 2007 till today and here what’s he said “Ukbekezelelana” nokHloniphana meaning respect  and tolerate one another that hit me.

You don’t give up on someone just because all of a sudden he got into drugs that can happen to the best of us,if he still putting the work then you will keep together while trying to solve this issue .it’s more like marriage of some sort you don’t give up on your partner after one infidelity strings of events will lead to saying I’m done.

Respect a person with a short temper then laugh about it later and tell him to calm down, we all have different personalities so let’s not jump into conclusion .priorities projects but don’t create a system earlier do the work in front of you as a team the always late guy give him early wrong time so automatically he be on time, the lie find a way to get him to talk the truth there’s lot of videos about that here on youtube.

This is the insightfull article i have ever read.

  1. 5 Talk about obvious stuff that might ruin your relationship

This point is leaning to life rather than music but as I said there’s a small distinction. Talk about your friend beautiful sister and see how he react this is the hard one as gents we just watch and die from within or joke about it while someone is really destructed . How you go about this way back again ULwaz and Dj So Long I saw my producers  sister coming back from school  and I couldn’t hold myself that when he intervene and said that my sister bro you don’t stand a chance. So that happened by luck so now you guys can be intentional other brothers might’s not mind if you are a good guy in the hood it’s a taboo to let your sister date a friend but we really don’t know this things can happen behind your back either way,if they come out end up ruining the work relationship. The problem with this point some of the guys don’t have sister’s but still lot of girls out there if your friend say no get over it and focus on ispan. Talk about can I be in studio as an artist while you away and see if that okay with parents because some steals at the end because we use bedroom studios when we starting out. Talk about money guys , see others assume that the producer is responsible for the equipment that fine if other team members are responsible of something else , someone else might have a car we still need to put some petrol  unless the working arrangement is good and maybe artist already buy electricity. Others can sacrifice others cannot afford to sacrifice since the background are not the same. Be considerate don’t watch your friend buys food every time he hit the studio and you don’t contribute he is not paying ,that just how it’s supposed to be help each other make a great environment  to make hits. And lastly tell people who are not welcomed there are people who are fans or artists who come to the studio for no reason you don’t talk anything of substance maybe you can feed them with info they might fascinate them and leave it like that you need to be on the hunt and work consistency or flow. With this point its might seems like someone is centre of attention its shouldn’t be like that since the producer is normally has a finally word and one of the artist sees that there is a guy who keeps coming in the studio for no reason tell a producer to tell him politely that he’s not welcomed unless he came to work.
