Its nearly time for the Cape Audio College Annual Live and Direct party, so get ready for an awesome night featuring 5 Bands, 5 Djs, 2 Floors, 3 Bars, promo girls…the works!
On the 29th October we’re going to pack the new Zula Sound Bar at 98 Long Street with a massive line up of crazy party madness and two massive JBL rigs. The line up for the electronic dance floor consists solely of Cape Audio College students and graduates, and will be primarily playing a mix of Electro, Dub-Step, and good ol’ Drum and Bass. We will be starting the night with Django, followed by Fun Toy and then Callan Maart. You’ll then have to pardon the interruption for the first Cape Audio Kill or be Killed MC Battle (open to all – enter on the Cape Audio blog page). There will be a legendary Telefunken M80 vocal mic up for grabs (sponsored by SEGMA South Africa) and the event will be hosted by the one and only Whosane. The floor will then be handed over to the epic DJ Mezzanine who will keep the dance floor jamming till we’re all kicked out the club. There will also be a band stage hosting a line up of 5 amazing local live acts, all in one way or another affiliated with Cape Audio College. We will be kicking off with Llavado, followed by the lovely Chantal with her band LA.VI. 7th Son will then be bringing in the ska-ness, followed by the amazing Captain Stu, and ending the night with the party machines, The Rudimentals!

Last week Friday, the Cape Audio College course director, Gaston Roulstone, was asked to head through to Bellville Studios to help Theo Crous with some technical issues he was having in his studio, so Gaston organized two Cape Audio College students to join him, giving them the opportunity to chat with South Africa’s biggest selling rock producer. Both Noel Kriegler, a first year student, and Daniel Brieter, one of our second year students, were very happy to be chosen to join Gaston on his Visit. Read more »Share

Always good to hear what our Cape Audio College graduates are doing. The Cape Audio College has been producing quality sound engineers for the past 16 years. Our graduates are working in all aspects of sound production in all corners of the globe. This time we catch up with Kyle Sanders who has been “making waves” with his band Wolftown. We thought we would catch up with him to see how things are going.
LA.VI is an upbeat alternative blues band fresh from their cross country tour and first ever gig at Splashy Fen music festival in KZN, It’s great to see a band with such musical vibe getting started. We first heard of them here at Cape Audio College last year, when they came in to do some recording with some of our first year students as a brand new band from Cape Town. We were all mutually glad to have them back here in studio.
This last week was the first year student’s studio recording practical held in the Cape Audio College ‘main room’ studio. Read more »

This weekend was a busy one here at Cape Audio College. The campus was teaming with people, more specifically interested prospective students, all here in the Waverly Business Park to see Cape Audio College on display.
The day was spent through tours around our facilities, as well as a very informative talk presented by Terrence Adendorff of Primedia/Kfm on careers in Sound Engineering, some valuable inside information on the radio business, and on the sound industry in general. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come out to the event on a Saturday morning, so now it’s time to join our forum, and I’m sure it won’t be long until we’ll be seeing you back on campus as student getting to grips with the art of recording.
