About the album

SKOP GAT is a music campaign initiated by Music Mayday to spotlight talent in South Africa, through collaborations with Dutch artists with the purpose of drawing attention to the creative potential of youth living in inner cities and townships. Not coin- cidentally the campaign took off during FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup, where the focus was on South Africa and the African continent. As a result, SKOP GAT was able to bring to life 10 unique songs on one CD, which serve as soundtracks to South African daily life.

This product is the result of dedication, passion, energy and creative juices that flowed between the youth and artists of a diverse background, who never met prior, but shared one commonality - the desire to create something that will change the world and create a better future. Allow us to take you on a musical journey through diverse genres including: hip-hop, house, afro-soul, mbaqanga, dancehall, folk, and a touch of jazz, therefore providing a tasty concoction that will no doubt satisfy your broad musical pallet.
Music Mayday has devoted years to stimulating and guiding talented youth in Africa. We are convinced that creativity is the backbone to social, cultural and economic evolution. Talent can be broken down into various categories ranging from music & dance to film & theater. We build on the creative potential which is already existing among youth. This is where Music Mayday has proven to be effective - by offering guidance and coaching, our projects serve as a safe haven and launch pad for talented individuals. Not only do we provide the necessary equipment, but we also find it crucial to teach these youngsters the business by linking them up with industry professionals and media. Finally we provide them with international connections. Music Mayday has successfully executed various “talent support” initiatives
in Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi and Namibia) since 2003.

Eric Vloeimans

Eric Vloeimans (Huizen, 1963) is an improvising trumpeter and composer who regards the term ‘jazz’ as too limiting to describe his music. His work is characterized by melodic and lyrical power, and a distinctive, individual sound that is called velvety or whispering in the more subdued pieces. From 2006/2007 Eric Vloeimans has been active with two much-praised formations: the chamber jazz trio Fugimundi (Anton Goudsmit guitar, Harmen Fraanje piano) and the electric band Gatecrash, in which rock and funk elements can be traced (Jeroen van Vliet keyboards, Gulli Gudmundsson bass, Jasper van Hulten drums). With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time. In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band...

With the latter group, he employs electronic effects in his trumpet playing for the first time.
In addition, he continues to develop other projects, such as the band Oliver’s Cinema with accordion player Tuur Florizoone and cellist Jörg Brinkmann (CD available from August 2013, and a US tour in October 2014)) , and a duo with pianist Florian Weber, with a CD release : Live at the Concertgebouw in 2011.
His broad range of interests has led Vloeimans to collaborate with artists from other musical worlds. In the pop music area, these include Fay Lovsky, Doe Maar, Spinvis, Jan Akkerman and trumpeter Kyteman (Colin Benders). Where world music is concerned, Vloeimans was involved in projects with flamenco guitarist Eric Vaarzon Morel, Latin pianist Ramon Valle, and the fado-inspired Pessoa of Fernando Lameirinhas.
Vloeimans has performed as a soloist with classical ensembles such as the Matangi Quartet, the Calefax Reed Quintet, the Metropole Orchestra, the Gelderland Orchestra, the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, the Holland Baroque Society, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
2011 saw the premiere of his first trumpet concerto, Evensong, with the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, orchestrated by Martin Fondse, and recorded for CD with the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.
