UK and SA music mash up!!

Well if you listen to radio1 xtra at all you would know that Rodney P and Skitz are in Africa (more specifically dirty south at the mo). They have covered a really interesting piece on South African youth culture in their documentaries section that is definitely worth checking out to get a feel for what’s happening in the scene.

Well, the ever-inventive movement crew, known for their huge events at carfax, have decided to get the UK boys to mash it up with some top SA talent at the Spark gallery in Johannesburg. Alongside Rodney P and Skitz will be SA beatbox-dj Redwood, C-live and Tumi and the Volume. On the house floor will be 2-lani of Retro Music and the Pimp Squad whipping the commercial house tunes for the masses(ahem..).

Spark Gallery – 10 Louis Road, Norwood Entrance: R40 before 14h00, R70 after
