WIN TICKETS to Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky & Black Motion Launch “Beat Of Africa” Album This Saturday


We’ve been longstanding supporters of Black Motion and Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky at MyCityByNight, which is why we were simply ecstatic when we heard the news that Ballantine’s Scotch Whisky and SAMA-winning, platinum-selling duo Black Motion asked people from across the country to submit the sounds, rhythms and beats that represent their life and experience of South Africa, with the goal of co-creating one incomparable album: the Ballantine’s Beat of Africa. 

Months of searching, collecting and curating will culminate this Saturday 6 May 2017 when Ballantine’s and brand ambassadors Black Motion officially launch the Beat of Africa album at Turbine Hall in Jozi, which we’re 100% sure is going to turn out to be a night to remember. The line-up includes headliners Black Motion, with special guests Jazzuelle, Trancemicsoul, DJ Fosta and Leighton Moody.

It has been a singularly unique journey to get here: Black Motion spent the last few weeks choosing the best sounds from the hundreds of submissions. From there they headed into studio to mix these everyday sounds into an incredible and one-of-a-kind track that is distinctly ours. This track will also form part of the bigger Beat of Africa album, which will include similar tracks from partner countries Cameroon, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia. 

Join us as we celebrate the sounds of a nation at this incredible event in downtown Joburg.

Date: Saturday 6 May 2017

Venue: Turbine Hall, 65 Ntemi Piliso, Johannesburg

Time: 20H00-02:00

Tickets are only R130. Get yours here:
