South African BLK JKS collaborating with Tiesto

The next novel for Tiesto’s collaborations and remixes in 2010 is with the best African Band BLK JKS.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for SA indie band, BLK JKS. Firstly Rolling names them the best new African band, then they score themselves to SAMA nominations, they get added to the first ever, FIFA Kick-off concert bill on the 10th of June and now this. The guys will be mashing it up on stage at the Smirnoff Experience party in Jozi- and they’re doing so with world famous DJ Tiësto. The party goes down on the 15th of May. Can’t wait to hear the sound, the mash? Well the guys are hard at work with the mashup and while it will be premiered at the party, fans will get an opportunity to hear the track next month. I’ll keep you posted.

On the collaboration Tiësto says: “The chance to collaborate with BLK JKS, the most exciting new band from South Africa, is something I might not have done were it not for not for Smirnoff asking me to be part of the Smirnoff Experience™ ‘Mashup Street’ in South Africa. The concept of mixing and remixing music genres and cultures is something that continues to inspire me. I’m really excited to share the new track we’re making and the live show with the entire world.”
