If you’re a fan of Jitsvinger’s music, you’re gonna love his latest contribution which pays special tribute to Youth Day, taking place on Saturday, 16 June.

Quintin Goliath, aka Jitsvinger, has launched the Knapgat series in honour of the 1985 Trojan Horse Massacre, a historical event that led to the killing of three youths during an anti-apartheid protest in Athlone.

Jitsvinger will be out at the Rollingwood Surf and Skate Store in Muizenberg to launch his new EP, Strategis.

Known as an Afrikaans cultural activist, the 36-year-old muso says: “Strategis celebrates the power of the youth and their ability to create change and commemorate those who have lost their lives during this attack. I’m a laaitie from the ’80s so this speaks very dear to me.”

Jitsvinger was born in Mitchells Plain, but moved to Kuils River when he was seven years old.

He already has two albums released, called Skeletsleutel and Jitsologie.

Jitsvinger regularly collaborates with other big names such as Jack Parow, Youngsta CPT, Claire Phillips, Kyle Shepherd, Blaxtar and Zulu Boy.

The Slow Life event will also premiere his latest video, as a follow-up to the Knapgat series of remixes from his Jitsologie EP.

“The audience can definitely look forward to an audiovisual adventure through rhymes, riffs and remixes from my debut album, to the most recent releases,” says Jitsvinger.

“The remixes are especially aimed at the youth to encourage their own authenticity and identity through music.”

The event will be hosted by actress Kay Smith and the audience can also look forward to the sounds of old school, inspired mixes by DJ Fingaz and Vintage Blue.

Tickets can be purchased at Quicket at R100 each.
