On Hate Speech, The Realist deliver bone crushing basslines with ruthless urban lyrics as easily as they drift into inner city turmoil and emotive soundscapes and then round it all off with the humorous, filthy and edgy ‘The Ass Track’.
The recent attention been given to South African Hip Hop is not in vane with artists like ‘The Realist’ emerge, bridging gaps between Electronica and Hip Hop. Hate Speech also features guest appearances by Gambino and Ben Sharpa who also featured on Milanese album ‘Lockout’. The EP is being released as both a vocal and an all instrumental version. Check out a recent MC battle between Waddy / The ninja from Die Antwoord vs Sinister Dexter from The Realist here
The Realist Manifesto:
The Realist are here to tell it like it is. They are the political party that doesn’t want your vote. They are the religion that doesn’t want you kneeling at their altar. They are the uncomfortable truth that you don’t want to hear. Taking no prisoners in their war of attrition against the superficiality and moral hypocrisy of polite society and popular culture, The Realist stay true to their name.
Part hip hop crew, part rock group, The Realist are; producer T.O.B. (The Triplet of Bellville), and rappers Kid Clever and Sinister Dexter.
Wearing their anger and disgust like a badge of honour, The Realist defy genres with their bone-crushing fusion of glitch-hop and electronica. With the power of an apocalyptic opera, their sound is characterized by heavy electronic basslines underpinning orchestral soundscapes layered with powerful lyrics and tortured death metal vocals.

4. I Got … (Dov Remix) 4:20
5. I Got … (Random Rab Remix) 3:30
6. I Got … (Mochipet Remix) 3:08
The success of An-ten-nae’s Acid Crunk series has helped define more than a genre but a culture of freaky funk for the dancefloor.
This time round An-ten-nae picked Cape Town, South Africa based artists ‘Mix n Blend & Narch’ and then put the track through his own remix actions and got remixes by some of the US west coats most sought after artists of the moment, namely; Beats Antique, Dov, Mochipet and Random Rab. From the jazzed out instrumentation of Beats Antique to the hyphe glitch of Mochipet the effect is high impact and made for dancing.
Mix n Blend & Narch have been rocking festivals around South Africa from Oppikoppi to Rezonance and then keeping their local Cape Town scene funky and fresh with diverse beats.
Mix n Blend s debut album in 2009 ‘Look Mom, No Hands’, on African Dope Records was widely supported including Boom Monk Ben from Solid Steel Records UK including numerous Mix n Blend tunes in his now famous Solid Steel Mixes. 2010 also started hot for these young fellas with their dubstep crunk ‘Get Crunk Wit Jesus’ track getting signed to UK based Skanky Panky Records and selling well. The future is bright with Mix n Blend & Narch bringing us a little of that sunny South African heat.

David Starfire (Six Degrees): “glitchy rock busters!”
Pathaan (BBC / Worldwide / iDJ): “feeling this in bits and pieces…”
Psymbionic (http://www.bwompbeats.com): “Having never heard of these guys, I am pleasantly surprised by a myriad of amazing (and thoroughly loud) sounds. Eardrum bursting, mind-melting craziness jampacked into a full length LP. I’m honestly not even sure what else to say, I’m kind of in awe, although I don’t know if it’s from the fruits of the loudness war or because I’m going to have to scrape my brain off the floor now.”
Inaudible: “Huge range of experimental music here, would love to see a list of influences. Hard to pick a fave, 8 Bit Chinsocilliator drops into a beast dancefloor wise, but I’d have to go for ‘US of Air’ for the cool factor.”
Neptune (Beat Church SF): “Really nice diversion from the usual stuff being cranked out. Phresh sounds and style, I like the range of styles between tracks, says a lot to me and with an understone of funk, that always gets me. Good work!!! keep it up! bless it…tune.”
Sam (www.brapdem.com): “Wow! Really diverse beats. I could even call them truly funky.
Alan Ranta (tinymixtapes.com / popmatters.com / The Skinny): “The yo sauce.”
