Locnville – Wanna Meet the Apprentice Longhair?

www.MyPE.co.za: Both
the Official Longhair and my Apprentice Longhair are avowed Locnville
fans and have both booked their transport to the St Georges Park Fan
Fest on Tuesday evening 29 June. Entrance to the concert is free.

Locnville Live in Port Elizabeth“I’ve got the sun in
my pocket and the moon in my hands . . .”

The catchy lyrics of Locnville’s debut hit, “Sun in My Pocket”,
accurately sum up the stellar success the electro dance duo is
currently enjoying.

Port Elizabeth audiences can see the young musical stars at the Fifa
Fan Fest™ at St George’s Park on Tuesday evening (7.20pm), just
before the start of the 8:30 Spain vs Portugal Round of 16 soccer match
in Locnville’s home town of Cape
Town
.

Born in New York and raised in Cape Town, identical twins Andrew and
Brian Chaplin have been electrifying dance floors around the world with
their hip-hop infused dance music.

“The American influence is the hip-hop side of things,” says Andrew of
their trans-continental upbringing. “South Africa – and specifically
Cape Town – inspired a different way of thinking, as well as the more
electro or electronica sound.”

Many first-time listeners are surprised to learn that the deep-voiced
African American sound belongs to two young white guys from Cape Town.
“We’ve heard that many times before,” laughs Andrew, “but I think it’s
a good thing because it definitely creates conversation.”

The Chaplin twins have been a talking point since their former band,
III, released an album on Mxit. They became the first band in South
African history to debut their album on the social messaging platform
and it achieved double platinum download sales status.

However, it was only with the formation of Locnville that their musical
vision began to take shape.

Locnville signed with leading South African independent label Just
Music in November 2009 and released their first album, Sun in My
Pocket, in February.

“It took about two weeks to record everything,” comments Brian. “We
actually produced the entire album, so everything you hear from
Locnville is 100% Locnville.”

Sun in My Pocket became the highest charting debut album by a local
artist on the Musica charts. It also went to number one on the official
South African charts.

After signing a global deal with Sony Music International in May this
year, the meteoric rise of the Chaplin brothers shows no sign of
slowing down.

“People can expect a lot from Locnville,” muses Andrew. “We’re already
working on a lot of new material for the new album. Also, we’ve got our
European release going down in August so I’m really amped for that!”

They are also looking forward to returning to the Friendly City. Having
played here before, they are unreservedly enthusiastic. “Port Elizabeth’s
definitely got a party vibe about it! People can expect a banger of a
show.”

Successfully entertaining the audience would appear to run in their
genes – Andrew and Brian’s great-grandfather and Charlie Chaplin’s
father were brothers.

Now the new-generation Chaplin brothers are also making it on the
international stage and entertaining fans during the World Cup.
