Chron Burgundy & HuckFinn have decided to pre-release another single called Menace II Society ,which serves as the second single after the New Jack City single.
Menace II Society was the song that birthed the idea of Chron & Huck putting together the New Rap City EP. It was also the first official OB-1 beat, that both artists had ever jumped on.
Look out for the Johannesburg duo’s first video dropping soon. In the meantime you can stream/download the song below.

Eryx is a techno DJ and producer who hails from the Basque area in Spain. Despite having an alias which originates from Greek mythology in Eryx, this DJ/ producer is actually from a city called Vitoria-Gaistez, while the legendary Eryx was a king of Sicily and renowned boxer.
As a techno musician in a monarchical country like Spain where one’s chances of being the actual “King” of the state are impossible, it means one has little or no influence in terms of the popularity of their music and attraction of a wide audience. . Hence having to be “King” is not enough in terms of national production and sovereignty – which means Eryx has to mix up his “boxing” set of combinations and take his music to other regions
This is where the UK-based Musica Dispersa records, as a meeting of points for Eryx, has come in to advance his cause. This is in particular to the current music culture where people may share (music) files more readily than opportunities. We spoke to Eryx about his passion for making music and how he got into it, the music industry in Spain and what he has in store for the future.
If one holds their breath long enough, then their face will start turning blue (visibility of which depends on the amount of melanin one has). For a white rapper like Tre, who has been plying his trade in the industry for almost a decade without a single radio hit, it’s easy to ‘catch the blues’ as he is still holding out. The blues as a musical genre is centered around the central theme of depression. If there ever was a time for the music industry to slump into depression, the current digital age would be it; which now seems to be past the point of economic recession.
Industry Blues is about Tre’s experiences since coming into the industry – from when he dropped out of his tertiary studies to pursue what many may deem as a fruitless dream. Although he hasn’t “made it” yet, Tre promises to keep grinding and is not about to let up. Industry Blues will be on Tre’s next album Get Up: All City Toy which is due for release in early 2017.
As Tre’s second single to be campaigned for national radio, this speaks of Tre’s tenacious nature despite his previous single Enough being play-listed on only one community radio station in South Africa. If at first you don’t succeed – you try again, lamenting that one must suck it up even if it means going blue in the face (of adversity).
