Having firmly rooted themselves within the South African Electronic Music industry, Twelv & Thesis have played almost every major festival and club in the country with their unique blend of nonsense & bass.

We were lucky enough to be able to catch up with Twelv & Thesis for a little Q&A earlier last week.
We talk about Microwaves, Avo Milkshakes & Phizicist singing in the Shower.

1.For all the readers out there who may not be familiar with you, tell us a bit about yourself and how Twelv & Thesis started.

” We’ve used to play racing games and deliberately drive in the opposite direction to crash each others car,  and have known each other since we were young enough that eating mud because it looked like chocolate was still an acceptable thing.  It was kind of inevitable that we’d end up making music together really..”

2.What piece of equipment could you not live without (not necessarily DJ equipment)?

” Microwave! or toaster, its a tough decision when you think of all the non bread related items you can trick your toaster into cooking. “

3.If you two never met, what do you think you would be doing right now? 

” Making paper-machette elephants, or destroying the rain forest with tanks. depending on who we ended up making music with instead. “

4.Im going to put you on the spot, now! Can you name three tracks that you feel will most represent the overall sound of Twelv & Thesis?

” Games, Sugar & Cold Like a Sandwich! “

5.If you could choose to work on a track with any artist or vocalist, who would be top of the list and why?

” At the moment its Phizicist, because local is lekker and this guy is killing it right now in terms of production. I know he sings to himself in the shower as well so that technically makes him a vocalist too. “

6.What can we expect to see more of from Twelv & Thesis at Grietfest 2013?

” If more equates to almost half an hour of never heard before material, then yes. “

7.We’re already half way through the year, what do you guys have planned for the rest of 2013, anything special?

” We’re releasing a computer game! . “

8.When you visit our website (, What are your first impressions?

” We want to touch the mixing desk in the artist section banner photo. “

9.Everyone’s got a hidden talent. What’s yours?

” We make games & avocado milkshakes. “
