Fast Facts about Gaming and Injustice 2

  • Jack Parow is an avid gamer. (He is, in fact, gaming right now when he should be busy writing his next album). Megarom sent him to the 2016 Gamescom in Cologne (Germany) to cover the event and this year in June he will be attending the prestigious E3 Electronics entertainment expo in Los Angelos to represent.
  • Fokofpolisiekar members Hunter Kennedy and Francois van Coke are also keen gamers. Although they are mostly on the road, they play games in their off time.
  • Gaming is the fastest growing entertainment industry.
  • Internationally professional gaming has become a viable profession and career path with players competing for millions of US Dollars as well as brand endorsements.

About the Injustice 2 Game:

  • For the first time, gamers can take control of how their characters look, fight and develop across a variety of game modes.
  • Injustice 2 expands on the previous title’s larger-than-life showdowns. With every match, players earn gear to equip, customise and level up their favourite DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains that meaningfully impacts not only how they look, but also how they fight.
  • Players can choose from the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game, from classic fan favourites such as Batman, Superman, Supergirl, The Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle, to astonishing new villains like Atrocitus, Gorilla Grodd and Deadshot.

Injustice 2 is built by NetherRealm Studios and Ed Boon:

  • Developers of the best-selling and critically acclaimed Mortal Kombat franchise, NetherRealm Studios brings unrivalled storytelling, robust content, and best-in-class fighting mechanics to the DC Universe.
  • In 1992, Ed Boon was one of four people who changed the games industry forever with Mortal Kombat. The arcade brawler shocked audiences with its realistic (at the time) blood and gore. The ensuing moral panic led to the establishment of the industry-standard video games rating system, better known as the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
  • "Mortal Kombat had four people working on it. It was a sound guy, two artists and myself. And I was the only programmer," Boon told CBC News. "Back in the day, I was the voice of a lot of the characters. I was the announcer and I was Scorpion yelling, 'Get over here!'" Read the article and interview with Ed Boon here: cbc.ca

JACK PAROW: Good Times Taste Like Parow Brandy

JP 2017 Landscape Allister Christie MR

Parow Brandy to get the good times rolling and

Jägermeister presents Dis Bef*k tour, supported by Nixon:

It’s no secret that Jack Parow loves brandy almost as much as he loves rapping. So much so that he often raps about it and included an ode to brandy, Ricky Louw, on his self-titled debut album back in 2010 – “Ek like my brannas drie vingers sterk en yskoud.”  (I like my brandy three fingers strong and ice cold.)

It has always been Jack’s dream to have his own brandy so that he never goes thirsty and now this dream has come true and he can’t wait for you to taste it.

The Parow Brandy is a 3-year premium hand-crafted brandy. It was created by Jack Parow to fill the gap in the local market for a premium locally produced brandy met skop and lots of flavour, hence the tag 'karate water' on the label.

It is produced by a small cellar in Montagu and is the highest quality and best tasting 3-year brandy around.

The brandy will be exclusively stocked in Checkers stores countrywide for February.  From March 2017 the brandy will be available country-wide at various outlets.

The Parow Brandy is the house brandy at The Good Luck Bar in Johannesburg and at all RocoMamas Restaurants country-wide and is rolling out to other bars and restaurants soon.

Jägermeister presents Dis Bef*k tour, supported by Nixon:

*Nixon is giving Jack Parow fans the opportunity to get a 25% discount when shopping at their Canal Walk store. When making your purchase use the secret password "Jack Parow". See here for more details: facebook.com

Jack Parow will also be giving away two Nixon watches later this week. Keep an eye on his social pages.

Kyk uit!  A New Album is coming…

Jack Parow is working on new material and his fourth full-length album is scheduled to be released in September 2017. 

Watch Dis Bef*k Remix featuring Jitsvinger:

Jack Parow and Jitsvinger released the Dis Bef*k Remix (censored version is called Dis Bfk Remix) for FREE at the end of 2016. 

The song is about Parow’s love for his 4-year-old daughter, Ruby, and the footage for the video was filmed by her.  She was fitted with a GoPro so that the lyric video portrays life from her perspective. This footage is complimented with the lyrics written in Jack Parow’s handwriting.

JACK PAROW: The 'From Parow with Love' EP is out Now

jack parow allister christie satallite dish

JACK PAROW’s brand new EP, 'From Parow with Love', is jam packed with the kiefest collaborations from ‘Cape Town all the way to the Netherlands’, and goes live on iTunes tomorrow! Fans can also look out for limited physical copies hitting the store shelves around the end of next week.

But, if you come to the launch shows this weekend (see the gig guide below) you can be the coolest cat in town and get it there first!

While Parow was busy conquering the Benelux countries he made new chommies and before you know it they started making some fantastic music together. Jack Parow dropped the first music video from the EP on 22nd January.

Watch De Kraaien and Jack Parow’s Kattenkwaad Music Video here:

 Get From Parow with Love on iTune

TRACK LIST:

  1. De Kraaien & Jack Parow – Kattenkwaad (Netherlands)

Jack Parow met Bernd Gansebev and Prins Clit in Paanham during his travels in The Netherlands a few years ago.  In 2015 he ended up visiting De Kraaien at their studio in Den Haag. After a full day session Kattenkwaad was almost finished. Jack Parow finalised his part in Cape Town and the two acts worked together to make the music video.

2. Ertebrekers & Jack Parow - Party Too Much (Belgium)

Flip Kowlier contacted Jack Parow in the beginning of 2015 about working together on a track that he had an idea for. That was the birth of Party Too Much. The Jack Parow parts were recorded at a friend’s flat in the East side of Amsterdam in July 2015.

3. Jack Parow - Thunderbolts & Lightning (feat Simon from De Likt) (Netherlands)

Jack Parow was only recently introduced to De Likt’s music by an Amsterdam based South African. He immediately connected with their energy and music. He needed an additional track for this EP. After a few emails and WhatsApp messages the production started on this killer track produced by Johnny De Ridder (Soft Light City) featuring De Likt front man Simon.

4. SKIP&DIE & Jack Parow - Perpetual War Remix (Netherlands)

Jack Parow met SKIP&DIE for the first time in 2010 at an event in The Netherlands where they were on the bill and they immediately clicked.  They worked together on two other projects, but when SKIP&DIE released their second album Cosmic Serpents in 2015 Parow immediately fell in love with their track, Perpetual War.  Parow suggested they do a remix of this song together and in August 2015 production started when he visited them in studio in Utrecht.

5.  Jack Parow - A Rebel Till He’s Dead (A tribute to Pieter-Dirk Uys) (South African)

*More information will be released at a later stage.

6.  Freshlyground & Jack Parow - Army of One (South African)

Secret agents of #zefspionage, Jan Bont (Jack Parow), Geldpenni (Zolani Mahola) and FRESHLYGROUND joined forces on the very thrilling and action-packed song, 'Army of One' for November 2015’s Sony Xperia Mashlab on 5FM.

From PAROW With LOVE - 'Kattenkwaad' with DE KRAAIEN

jack parow allister christie satallite dish

FROM PAROW WITH LOVE: Jack Parow | Photo by Allister Christie

JACK PAROW garnered massive success when he dropped his 'Nag van die Lang Pette' double album in The Netherlands and Belgium in 2014. Our Afrikaans rapper made his mark on this territory by appearing and performing on the biggest TV shows and radio stations there. He made thousands of new fans with two sold out club tours in 2014 and a super successful summer tour in 2015.

It was during these regular visits that Jack Parow met like-minded Dutch artists which resulted in inevitable next-level collaborations. During his European summer tour in 2015, Parow worked with a few Dutch and Belgium artists to create the 'From Parow with Love EP'.

This EP will be available from Friday, 29th January 2016. The first offering from this release, 'Kattenkwaad with De Kraaien' is out now to hold us over until next week.

Watch De Kraaien and Jack Parow’s Kattenkwaad Music Video below!

Jack Parow & Freshlyground - 'Army Of One' (Official Music Video)

Get 'Army Of One' on the South African iTunes store now: apple.co/1TxVkvf (or your local iTunes store).
Sony Xperia smart phone users can download it for FREE from the Xperia Lounge (only 2000 free downloads available).

Sounding somewhat like an intro to an anti smoking campaign, (laughs a little) JACK PAROW and  FRESHLYGROUND pull it off. Once Zolani Mahola (FRESHLYGROUND) begins with her vocals, you hear a somewhat familar sound hit your ears.. Is this James Bond? Nope, It's JAN BONT, South African style and only JACK PAROW AND FRESHLYGROUND could do this. Hear it here.

Jack Parow’s Gevaarlike colab with Freshlyground... coming soon!

Jack Parow was voted by 5FM listeners to collaborate with Freshlyground on this month’s Sony Xperia Mashlab track. Listeners submitted their ideas for a theme to a song and the brief came to #zefspionage.

The Freshlyground gang and Jack Parow has since been crazy busy working on this track featuring Jan Bond (Parow) and Geldpenni (Zolani Mahola). The song has been named 'Army Of One' and it will be played for the first time on 5FM on Thursday 26 November at 2:15pm.

Soon after the first airplay 1000 x free downloads of 'Army Of One' will be available on the Sony Xperia Lounge platform.

This single will be available on iTunes and other digital platforms around 8 December. A music video release in the spirit of espionage is also in the works.

Look here to see more of what’s happening behind the scenes:  

Listeners are also encouraged to send in their ideas for the artwork of Army Of One.
