Great News for fans of SA Music! The video for Die Dinkdansmasjien has been released! Bittereinder have been making waves with this song on some of South Africa’s radio stations. They first played this song live at Oppikoppi Unknown Brother in 2011. It was only released as the title track on their second album in late 2012 though.
The video features footage of Bittereinder’s live performances all over the country. I see glimpses of Oppikoppi, Synergy Live, the old Arcade Empire and other venues in there. The video was created Louis Minnaar and Christo Jansen Niemandt. According to the description on the video for Die Dinkdansmasjien on YouTube “Bittereinder lovingly dedicate this video to TUKS FM 107.2, Pretoria‘s finest radio station, who made this song #1 in February 2013 before anybody else even had it on a chart. All 3 of us grew up listening to TUKS FM: respect to Elvis Hitler, The Preacher, Stav, Jaco Smit amongst many others. Pretoria in ons hart.” I think that sums it up for you. The video features footage taken by Christo Jansen Niemandt, Fritz De Jäger, Neil van der Walt and Neil Human.
I think that this video is one of the better ones that I’ve seen released in 2013. Die Dinkdansmasjien is one of my favorite Bittereinder tunes though. There’s only Afrikaans electro / rap tune that can get a crowd that is predominantly English dancing at a festival.
