This Saturday, 9th September, you can party it up at arguably the raddest local venues catering to the rock scene in Gauteng, The Good Luck Bar, for their 2nd birthday celebration. The night will be filled with amazing local music, beautiful people and some ice cold beverages. Be sure not to miss this one!! On the night there will be nine local acts performing live, so be ready to dance. One of the acts performing this Saturday is Disco Izrael, the solo rap act that will get you off your feet with his infectious beats. We had a young chat with Disco, this is what he had to say:

- Hi dude… how you doing? Its rad to be speaking to you..
Heya. Can’t complain. Glad to chat with you 🙂
- Before we get started, can you please introduce us to DISCO IZRAEL? Where do you come from in SA?
Disco Izrael was my first rap alias when I started rapping professionally about 10 years back. I’ve only recently started working as a solo artist and needed a name that would be stick true to that. Many of my friends know me as Disco, so I thought the name would be perfect for my new project.
- Can you give us a short background on the name DISCO IZRAEL?
In the early days of Facebook I started a fake Facebook account called Disco Izrael to fuck with my friends, and for some reason the name just stuck.
- Besides being a DJ act, are you also involved in your own production?
I make all my own beats but my homie Narch makes some of the best beats in the world so he sends me some shit from time to time.
- Where do you take inspiration from in your “sound”?
Everywhere. Literally. I only rap about shit I’ve experienced or dream of doing.
- Our local scene has been growing positively over the past few years… What are your thoughts on our local music scene at the moment and if there is anything you wish to see happen differently?
More RAP. More time and energy spend on creating a dope product.
- Are there any local acts that you think need a special mention?
Push Push, Dada Shiva, The Word is Uhh. There is more, but i’ll tell you next time 😉
- You are playing at The Good Luck Bar 2nd Birthday… are you excited for this gig? What can we expect from your set?
I’ve never been to the Good Luck Bar, but I’ve done tons of shows in Jozi. Very keen to catch up with the peeps that side. Line-up for that party is DOPE.
- Anything that you guys are currently working on that we would be interested in hearing about?
Spellz P.t 2 (working title)
- Where can we follow you on Social media?
- Lastly, if you could have and 3 producers to work with in studio, who would they be?
Tough question. Probably Grimes from the states because I love everything she does, But it wouldn’t be a traditional rap record I’m sure.
- Thanks for your time guys…!!
