Bittereinder have been making waves in the South African music industry over the last year or so. This Afrikaans Rap outfit burst onto the scene in late 2010. Jaco Van Der Merwe, Louis Minnaar and Peach van Pletzen are not newbies in the industry though. Jaco Van Der Merwe formerly had a solo career as the rapper Ajax. Louis Minnaar is famous for his design work and music video for Die Heuwels Fantasties, Van Coke Kartel and various other artists / venues in the industry. Peach van Pletzen is well known for his solo project Yesterday’s Pupil and another side project Oorlog Frankenstein (with Francois van Coke). These Pretoria based boys rocked out in front a 8,000+ strong crowd at Oppikoppi Unknown Brother this year (which was one of the most memorable sets that I’ve seen this year by any South African artist in my humble opinion).
If you have not seen these okes live yet, you should make a plan. This video below (filmed by Neil van der Walt) shows you just why you should:
