It is VAN PLETZEN’s mission to spread great vibes and it is exactly what they are doing with the launch of their debut album, 'Kak Lekke Vibe'. This album was released on Friday, 23 March 2018.

This Afrikaans electronic super-duo consists of Peach van Pletzen (Bittereinder, Yesterday's Pupil and previously from Oorlog Frankenstein) and Matthieu Auriacombe a.k.a. NIK NAX (Hello Beautiful and Beach Party).

They had the whole of South Africa dancing with their singles 'Eiland Styl' and 'Goud' which was released in 2017.  Their very first show was at 2017’s Oppikoppi.

Van Pletzen regularly uses satire and humour, but just because they are often funny, doesn’t mean that it is a joke. They deliver world-class production value and their live shows are truly something special.

“In a time when people have become overly serious and often passionately fight and debate issues and non-issues on social media, we rather offer an escape from it instead of participating in these "discussions”," says Peach.

Instead, they choose to make hilarious videos and share good times on social media this way. 

Van Pletzen believes that people shouldn’t take themselves too seriously and that people should laugh more and remember to enjoy life.  Follow them on social media to see what they are up to next!
