Maramza is the tapeworm inside South African DJ / Producer Richard the Third’s head, rooted straight into into his racial-integration obsessed, white-paranoid, politically disgusted id, leading to an unfiltered outpour of global future bass music. 2013 has seen Maramza remix the likes of Sibot (released through Jarring Effects), play at parties such as Cold Turkey, has an upcoming Ep featuring Ruffest coming out on Bombaada and produced well over an albums’s worth of material including original production, bootlegs and remixes, ensuring that any Maramza set is guaranteed to sound fresh, unique and bass-fueled.
Having firmly rooted themselves within the South African Electronic Music industry, Twelv & Thesis have played almost every major festival and club in the country with their unique blend of nonsense & bass. As well as playing alongside Local & International Legends such as SkiZM/Far Too Loud/Document One/The CyberPunkers/Dubsidia/Funtcase/Jenna G/Haezer/Double Adapter/Sibot/Mala/SchlatofBronx/Ali B/Gazelle/The FreeStylers/Autodidakt/Crossman & Phizicst/Liver/Dank/Hugs on Drugs/Richard The Third/The Blunted Stunman/Niskerone/P.H.Fat/Jam Jarr/BTeam/Voicetag/Mix&Blend & More – Having met at the age of 2 in a sandpit it was inevitable that these lifelong friends would one day make music together.
Twelv & Thesis are difficult to categorise. They’re not your average DJ and MC combo, nor are they simply purveyors of Break-Beat and its brethren. With touches of electro and drum n bass, a spoonful of glitch, and the ever present tooth rattling bass, one thing’s for sure: they make music designed to be partied to. An eclectic high octane blend of Electro, BreakBeat, Drum & Bass and Booty Shaking Dubstep Beats, blended into a single unique sound, tied together with rhythms that are current and accessible to everyone.
