Momentss, short for Motheo Moleko & The Space Section, is a four-piece from Cape Town, South Africa. Influenced by African music, funk, and hip hop, the band believes hip hop music can be as musical as any genre and deserves to be showcased on any stage, regardless of scale. Motheo, who fronts the band, got his start in the SA music industry by helping form the Jeremy Loops project (as seen in one of the videos linked to in this form). With that act established and growing rapidly, Momentss is his latest project alongside drummer Asher Gamedze, guitarist Rob Scott, and bassist Daniel Bruce Gray.

Multi-talented Freestate born afro-soul singer, songwriter and producer Maxhoba (MAX-HOBA) Maponya, is a breath of fresh air to the local music scene. His sound is a beautifully blended fusion of traditional African melodies, with a twist of modern harmonies. This talented vocalist is also an experienced voice over artist and workshop facilitator. His journey to Johannesburg in pursuit of musical accomplishments led to his meeting with one of SA’s award winning Hip Hop artists, Hip Hop Pantsula (HHP). Together they worked on HHP’s albums Maftown, Omang Reloaded, YBA to NW and Acceptance Speech and created some of HHPâ€™s top hits. He has over the years worked with other highly acclaimed artists like Amu, Morafe, Shugasmaxx, Don Laka, Pebbles and Kabomo. 2006 saw Max-hoba join HHP’s band for the Africa is Calling tour of Germany. It was this experience that lead to him stepping out on his own to cement his solo career. In 2010 Max-hoba released his debut album titled Making History. This Urban African Soul album blends his musical influences and deals with life, love, daily living and celebrates all that happens under the African sun and beyond.

Formed in 2009, Science On Stereo is an electro-rap/pop-funk/pop-rap collective from Benoni, Johannesburg consisting of 4 members (3 vocalists/songwriters and a songwriter/producer). We’re always playing around with new sounds and manipulating untested musical approaches. On our way to building a fanbase, along with our electro-rap sounds, we’ve recorded over mellow live music from around the world with the classic S.O.S. style and subject matter remaining evident on records to merely showcase the versatility within the collective. We hope to share the fun we experience writing, recording and performing our music with more multi-dimensional music-lovers.
We have released 2 EP’s since the group’s inception in 2009. The genres we have experimented with have allowed us to have a broad general awareness of what the common ear prefers to hear.
