The Home Of South African Music features S.A’s local talent, covering the latest up to date news, gig reviews, gear reviews, interviewing local bands and featuring international acts, covering the latest events in South Africa and offering related featured articles based on user related opinions and editorial analysis.
Established in March 2003, Underground Press set about the task of informing the local community about Johannesburg based events, which later escalated to bringing you news, reviews and interviews around the Local and International Alternative, Goth and Metal scene.
After a 3 year break, between 2010 and 2013, We returned, heading into a newer direction, opening our doors to all genres of music, histories and opinions about the South African music industry.
We recruited some fresh blood, giving us a chance to create the ultimate South African music portal in order to highlight the multiple talents and diverse range of music that this country has to offer. We want to connect South African musicians and music lovers and give them a home, where they can discuss and learn the ins and outs of the industry via a range of written, visual and social media.
We are ultimately striving towards growth, cross-over and unity in the South African music industry; by providing an educational stepping stone, into the vast, complex and largely undocumented world that is South African music.
Currently Underground Press is a small team of 7 volunteers based across the country. Each of them with unique talents ranging from Photography to a qualified Editor and some even include writing as a special talent. They all work in their own spare time and produce fantastic results.
We are constantly on the lookout for new volunteers who are always willing to share some of their spare time with us. We are not shy on credit. [Visit ‘Write For Us’ for more details.]
