The gameplay trailer in which is merely 2 minutes longs shows the rough look and feel of the game but which seems to look like any other of the trailer FIFA videos we have seen in the past.

You’ll have Confidence in Defending, take Control in Midfield, and you’ll produce more Moments of Magic than ever before. FIFA 16 – Play Beautiful.

Phuza Thursday: ”The Goodness – Byran Travis” mix

Its a Thursday, most parts of Mzansi is either cold as hell or covered in snow. But than again a thurdays is that small start to the weekend and also for some Phuza (A traditional zulu term for drink, it follows that ‘phuza thursday’ is the act of drinking (most commonly binge drinking) on a thursday night).

This weeks Phuza Thursday mix is in the form of ”The Goodness”, which is mixed by Byran Travis. I been listening to this DJ since i was a young ”Disciple of the Deep” back in the Mother City. And with having to move to another city, i knew i was not going to be able to be apart of the disciples. But than the release of his mix series called ”The Goodness” was released, in which we have heard some sounds of deepness house, some futuristic beats and catchy hip hop noise in the mix.

 

Check out the latest beats to keep warm this winter and to start off that PHUZA Thursday.

”To be saluted is a unique sign of respect. While people around the world are saluting each other with numerous hand gestures, cannon or rifle shots, and even the hoisting of flags; Cape Town’s prodigy child of Hip Hop, YoungstaCPT, has recently celebrated admiration for his city with a club banger, ‘Salutas’ – his first official single.” – Youngsta CPT

Tonight we will see what this rapper from the streets of ”Wittebomme” Kaapstad has been aiming for a long time and has eventually made it become a reality. Youngsta made this song to be his first official single and too have the music video debut on national television, and even though the rapper has been denied by a few major network companies, that didn’t allow the him and the record label company to get discouraged. Instead it pushed them to try even harder and had too persevere to this point they are at now.

Channel O’s ‘Turn Up’ (Channel 320) will debut the official ‘SALUTAS’ music video between 19:30-20:30. They haved urged the whole of Mzansi to gather around and too show their support.

Gold Khromo by Urban Enzo

Ensly Dooms, also known as Urban Enzo, has always been a big dreamer. His passion for music, travel and determination to succeed in business has led to the launch of his own earphone range called Gold Khromo by Urban Enzo.

Gold Khromo, Urban Enzo, Technology, Entrepreneur, Business, South Africa

The 25 year-old originally hails from Eldorado Park in Johannesburg South, a community stricken with poverty, drugs and unemployment. His surroundings in this environment did not hamper his entrepreneurial drive.

“Having my own earphone range has been a dream in the pipeline for the last two years. I have always been critical as to how I want music to sound, from the clarity to the bass and to the design – but I could not find one that matched my requirements,” said Enzo.

Gold Khromo, Urban Enzo, Technology, Entrepreneur, Business, South Africa

The lightweight Gold Khromo offers superb sound quality at every frequency and has a premium design to match. The earphones are sleek and stylish with luxe finishes of gold and metal on each side. Khromo also features a bullet design made out of metal, copper and mesh. It has a 56 core wire with four professional-grade balance pins allowing the music conduction rate to be close to perfect at 99.9998%. It also features a gold plated 3.5mm plug and noise-cancelling technology.

Enzo wants to be a role model to the youth in his community. “I want to show them that irrespective of your background, anything is possible with hard work and determination,” concludes Enzo.
