SOUTH African house duo, F.eU, consisting of DJs Fresh and Euphonik, delivered the goods in the much anticipated Miller Sound Clash held on Friday night at Victoria Poolside in Maseru.

Friday’s show ushered the festive season in style, courtesy of Maluti Mountain Brewery (MMB), which brought F.eU to the Mountain Kingdom as a promotional event for Miller Genuine Draft beer.

MMB is an affiliate of SABMiller plc, one of the world’s largest brewers.

Its brand portfolio includes Peroni Nastro Azzuro, Miller Genuine Draft, Grolsch, Castle Lager, Castle Lite, Castle Milk Stout, Hansa Pilsener, Carling Black Label, Maluti Premium Lager, Thabure and Redd’s.

Miller has gained repute throughout the world for hosting huge promotional parties and this time around Maseru was the place to be. According to MMB’s Brand Marketing Manager, Beatrice Marsleet, they intend to host the promotional parties once or twice a year.

F.eU has played in such events as Miami Invasion in the United States, which is one of the biggest bashes in the world. Their collaborative work became popular as hosts of the House music show Club Culture on SABC 1.

Since joining forces, Fresh and Euphonik have released four albums with F.eU selling over 24 000 copies and F.eU Too notching 15 000.

The duo played a set comprising of old-school House jams juxtaposed with the trending tunes in a Victoria Poolside packed to the rafters. The South African DJs, who rank among the best in their trade in the continent, had been eagerly anticipated by Basotho and their performance was well worth the wait, with the weather ideal as there was no rain clouds in sight.

While F.eU did not only play the well-known tracks that made them famous internationally, they played popular songs from other deejays, such as hits by veterans like Charles Webster, Louis Vega and Chris Lake.

Despite Euphonik being a first timer in performing in Lesotho, he had the audience eating out of the palm of his hand, so to speak, as he seemed never to put a foot wrong with the audience duly appreciating his efforts.

The duo revealed that they had been warned about visiting Lesotho, which they had been told was politically troubled, to which they replied that nothing would change their minds.

Revelers were evidently glad F.eU came as they had the time of their lives in a thrilling three-hour show with mind-blowing mixes.

The local contingent of DJs also held their own on the night with the likes of Mekonko and Tshepza DJ belting out soulful House sessions while Dallas T and DJ Slats, who performed as a duo, gave the audience a foretaste of what two deejays playing as a set can do as the main acts were also a pair.

Revelers were at the receiving end of a lot of Miller freebies at the party which went on until the early hours of Saturday morning.
