about 2faced1.com

"2FACED1 is a visionary digital network,  a loose collective with members in Europe, Africa and North America, bound together by what we call ‘stereotypophobia’."


 

Stereotypophobia

“It is all about critical questioning of what identity really is. Would you be the same person in another context? Does society have certain expectations on you based on traditional parameters like class, gender, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and so on? And how much do these expectations affect your so-called self? Every forward thinking person are aware of those things, its a gift which  also make you relate to other peoples struggles.”

TRAMP

Post date Thu 21 Jul 2011 2:50 PM

I am posted up at the inlaws, and the only thing that has been on my mind is making a decent impressions. I imagine the family to be rife with concerns about their lovely pure daughter being defiled by my scabby brown mits...and so I am looking to role models in non threatening blackdom. 

Essentially I am dressing as if I work in IT...outfits that say ''I like computers and am willing to spend my days in dank rooms fixing them''. 

Ana's granny is such a dear, but i can still imagine this convcersation going down:

Tramp!
What you call me?
Tramp.
You didn't!
You don't wear continental clothes, or Stetson hats.
Well I tell you one dog-gone thing. It makes me feel good to know one thing. I know I'm a lover.

That's all right, Mama was. Papa too. And I'm the only child. Lovin' is all I know to do.

LAZERCAT THINKS KIDD IS A DICK, I CONCURRR

Post date Wed 20 Jul 2011 9:49 PM

DEAR LAZERCAT

YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ARE ENAMOURED WITH AN ARTIST'S WORK AND THINK THAT THEY CAN DO NO WRONG, BECAUSE THEIR WORK AND ENERGY IS SO AMAZING THAT THEY MUST HAVE A DIRECT LINE TO GOD AND THEREFORE JESUS AND THEREFORE FATHER XMAS, AND SO THEY ARE NEVER NAUGHTY, BUT ARE ALWAYS NICE. 

WELL, IN MY WILD FANDOM OF KIDD, A RAPPER FORM COPENHAGEN WHO I GUSHED OVER PREVIOUSLY ON ZOMBO, I BUMPED INTO HIM ON FRIDAY WHILST CHLLNGR AND MYSELF WERE MOONLIGHTING AS BARTENDERS AT A CPH BAR CALLED BAKEN...

WELL, YOU WILL BE SUPRISED TO HEAR THAT HE WAS NOT NICE, IN FACT HE WAS PARTICULARLY NASTY. HE ACCUSED ME OF PRETENDING NOT TO BE DANISH, BUT IN FACT HAVING LIVED THERE ALL MY LIFE...THAT I WAS A DANISHMAN PRETENDING TO BE A SOUTH AFRICAN. THIS ALL AFTER I TOLD HIM, I LIKED HIS SONG. 

LAZERCAT, WHY CAN PEOPLE NOT TAKE COMPLIMENTS. LAZERCAT, WHY MUST BE PEOPLE BE OBNOXIOUS ASSHOLES? LAZERCAT, WHEN WILL WE HOLD HANDS IN NIRVANA?

NTHATO

Let the summer begin.

 

 

GNUCCI BANANA - FAMALAM JAM (prod. by SCHLACHTHOFBRONX) by GNUCCIBANANA

 

This is for the fam !!! It's for me and you, your mama and her cousin too. At the BBQ, at the beach, in the car with the windows down, at the pre-party, at the after-party, this IS the party. Bro's before foes !

"All the woman and all the man, call your famalam your mom and nan. Oh we having a jam, oh we're going ham, til'the am out the beer canon"

EVERYONE IS INVITED. Don't discriminate , celebrate !

 

 

The song is produced by the bonafide fam Schlachthofbronx. The artwork is made by my old school fam Johanna Ehde and in the actual artwork you can see the real famalam, me and my brother Marko.

I also made a video for this little jam collaborating with the good people at Nike Sportswear. The video was directed by Timothy Erem and I look good thanks to the 2 faced 1 fam DECIDA , LINN "GYPSIE" MARCUSSON and the AMAZING AMAZING LENA BUSS who custom made the 2 suits I wear.  The video is out aaaaany minute so hang on the edge of your seat for that one.

HIGH ALL THE TIME X LEBO RABAJI X GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINA

Post date Sat 2 Jul 2011 12:33 AM

THIS IS A VIDEO FROM ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PEOPLE. LEBO RABAJI, THE DIRECTOR LIVES IN BEIJING AND COULD VERY WELL BE CALLED MY BEST FRIEND. HE SHOT WHAT I LIKE TO THINK OF AS MY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO, GWABABA. 

LEBO LIKES TO FLY KITES IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN...AND IT SEEMS DJ WORDY, CHINESE TURNTABLIST X CLUBROCKER DOESN'T MIND THE ODD FLIGHT OF FANCY EITHER.

CHINA SEEMS SO FAR AWAY, I CAN BARELY EVEN IMAGINE IT. IT SEEMS LIKE ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT LEBO TELLS ME GOES AGAINST THE IDEA I HAVE OF A CULTURALLY VOID, DRY COMMUNIST COUNTRY. LEBO PAINTS IT AS VIBRANT, ENERGETIC AND INCREIBLY COMPLEX SOCIETY. HE GIVES FURTHER INSIGHT INTO HIS IDEAS ON CHINA IN HIS FILM TRILOGY WHICH INCLUDES GEMS LIKE SINO AND METRO. 

I CHOOSE YOU...EVERYDAY

Post date Sun 29 May 2011 7:52 PM
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SONG THIS WEEKEND...BY MAPHUTI AKA THABILE RASA FROM PII-IMP (CAPE TOWN X JOHANNESBURG)
;::::::::::::::::::::::
I HAVE KNOWN MAPHUTI SINCE I WAS MAYBE 12.

MAPHUTI HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE FUNNIEST, SWEETEST, PERTIEST...BUT ON THIS TRACK SHE GOES STRAIGHT RAAAAAAAW!!
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
THIS IS A A MUUUUCH BETTER VERSION OF THE SONG 'BARBERSHOP' THAT I FEAURED IN THE LAST 'HATERTOTS' I WROTE...
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Although not all together the most 'south african/authetntic' or 'original' song...IT IS JUST BAAAAAAADASS AND SWAGGED OUT ENOUGH TO KNOCK BOTH OTHER VERSIONS OUT THE WATER!
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
PHUTI'S RAPPING ACTUALLY SHOWED ME HOW DOPE THE BEAT WAS!
GO GIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRLS!!

MY PENPAL, MINA PLAYS PERCUSSION IN THIS WEIRDass GROUP...MINA LIVES IN OSaKA. MINA IS THE ONLY JAPANESE PERSON I KNOW. I HUNG OUT WITH THE BAND AT A WU-TANG SHOW IN AUSTIN, TEXAS...BEFORE SEEING THEIR SHOW. THEN BY PURE COINCIDENCE I SAW THEM PLAYING THE WIERDEST WILDEST SHOW LIVE SHOW I THINK I'VE EVER SEEN (I WAS ON THE WAY TO A MEXICAN BARBERSHOP WHEN I FOUND THEM WREAKING HAVOC). THEIR LIVE SHOW IS PRETTY TERRIFYING IN A WAY THAT YOUTUBE CLPS DON'T SEEM TO SHOW.

HATERTOTS: THIS IS A SOUTH AFRICAN RAP FAIL

Post date Mon 23 May 2011 12:42 AM
Before going into it, the long and short of this edition of 'Hatertots' is that Ricky Rick and Da Les' new song is shit. Da Les has always been shit, and I'm a bit suprised at Riky.
This new Riky Rick, Da L.E.S track is so disgustingly wack it actually makes me sick to my stomach...partly because it's a shame for two South African artists to be going on so god damn PUSSY and YANKY, secondly because Riky Rick is actually a super talented guy (contrary to what the weaksauce rap and flow on this track might suggest) who could be making the best music if he didn't get so AMERICANA and CORNY on us and thirdly because I actually thought this video wouldn't be this wack, i actually waited for something halfway decent. Alas, Da L.E.S did not dissapoint with his long long career of serving nothiong but the ROACHIEST bottom of the barrel rapping. I think of rap as something that you cannot really stay shit at, but Da L.E.S keeps proving me wrong.
I know Riky personaly and have had the pleasure of working with him, he is a quick witted lyricist witha good voice and an ear for harmonies and melodies...he's a good producer...at some point in our talk I remember him saying that he wants to make pop. Luike really big records. And I believed he could make the best kind of pop. This is not POP this is POOP. Terrible US rap knockoffs are not pop. It's more like when you get a pair of pants after your 3 older siblings have spent a decade passing them down. This song is the equivalent of those pants, tattered with blood and jelly stains...bleach burnt and smells a bit like industrial disinfectant. NASTY.
Generic video for a generic song that fails at it's apiration of being a common yankee video. urgh.
So why am I posting it? Because I know you sick fucks like to watch car accidents and bugs get squashed.
PS. WHEN DID EVRERYTHING GET SO FUCKING PLASTIC?!

BIG NUZ - GET NASTY (SABF EDIT)
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Not the most uncommon dillema, you meet someone and just as they introduce themself you think 'jesus Modimo Wasatane, look at those beautiful blonde dookie braids'...and so you miss his/her name...the evening procedes and you might even share a kiss with this fancy, phennominal stranger under the disco lights. You might share a donner kebab on your way home. You might share a condom or two. And you will wake up with the most powerful of headaches (and if you were raised religious), peppered with the most pungent of guilt pongs...you don't know their name. And so you make one up to put your mind at ease, whiles looking for clues...and buy time. Until you get busted...which is inevitable.
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Well, that's me with the below song that I found completely untitled in a litter of tracks, and so I have christened it...like Simba by the monkey...like Kunta Kinte under a full moon with all the stars of slavery aligned. I have proudly named this song...it has an either or name which you might find confusing.
Get Nasty / Garbage Dance
