DIY Presents: Asleep In Transit – Plans

Asleep In Transit are launching their latest EP, Kaleidoscope, tomorrow night at The Bat Center so they let us hear one of the new songs and share it with you. Aren’t they sweet? We also had a chat about the changes in the band and THOSE photos. Check it.   DIY: This is your second EP in a year, why’d you guys go the EP route and not put out a full length album? Vlad: The way that the music scene globally is going, people are releasing... Read More

Payne

Grant Payne is a man of few words, usually all that can be heard from him is “Yeah man!” or “Filthy”, which is why he lets his photos do the talking. This month he cruises town with his iPhone, sneaks some partying in and gets Veranda Panda on the couch.   Check out last month’s Payne for more filth and drive by shootings and give Grant a like on Facebook if you dig his work. If you don’t, feel free... Read More

Payne

TrollBot must have been playing with his Grant Payne voodoo doll last month since G-Payne was man down for most of it. No worries though, he still managed to get a couple choice images to share with you in this month’s Payne.     Check out last month’s Payne for more filth and drive by shootings and give Grant a like on Facebook if you dig his work. If you don’t, feel free to tell us how much you don’t in the comment... Read More

Humans Of Durban

This month’s Humans Of Durban pays a visit to a place familiar to the thrifty and those looking for unexpected treasures, The Car Boot Market.  Meet an economist, a mother who put her two daughters through school by selling at the market, a flashy dresser, a cute kid and a few more Durban humans. “I’m economist, and let me tell you we need to feed people. We need to bring back community gardens. People are addicted to grocery stores.” “We’ve... Read More

F.I.T.S

None of us at DIY have had the fortune of attending Fun In The Sun. It’s a shame really, we were meant to go this year but by the time we realised it was time for Durban’s biggest dance festival, all the lumo paint and MDMA supplies had dried up. Luckily for us, Al Nicoll was there to document the fun and he was willing to share some of his shots with us for your viewing pleasure. Did you hit up Fun In The Sun? Was it as fun as it looks?... Read More

Piece by Piece

ISO recently returned to Live to release their latest album, Piece by Piece, with instrumental sludge metal band STRAGE and the indie popsters Asleep In Transit sharing the bill. It was a weird one. Bob Perfect reviews the show.   It felt good to be back at Live for ISO’s Piece by Piece album launch. With the “new” and improved Winston re-opening the previous week, and Live moving forward despite their rather messy, confusing and long... Read More

Payne

G-Payne is back and he returned with some gold from his many an adventure of late. Check out his shots from Oppi with Fruit & Veggies, being the resident photographer at Amsterdam, Skullboy’s You&Me exhibit, the Winston’s re-opening and general filthy living.     You know you dig his vibe, so go give Grant a like on Facebook.  Read More

Humans Of Durban

Durban is known for its beaches so what better way to kick off our very first Humans Of Durban feature than by hitting the beachfront promenade and capturing the humans that frequent it. "Each sculpture takes about 5 hours. I rebuilt this one this morning after the rain." "Now that summer is coming, it means good business for me." "I love the things she calls me." "I love his face." "What weird stuff... Read More

1st Birthday Party Photos

Not the most original title, but whatever, I’m still hanging from Thursday. The always awesome Russell Grant took some shots of the good times, here are a couple of them, the rest will be on Facebook later. Once again, a huge thank you to everyone that pulled through, what a jol.       We won’t be DJ’ing but Heat City Nights, are teaming up with Uber Cool to bring you a bigger, bassier and better party at Live tonight.... Read More
