Black Motion:
 
Flying the flag for Tshwane, the house music capital, Black Motion formed in early 2010 when Robert Mahosana (DJ Murda) and percussionist Thabo ‘Smol’ Mabogwane decided to work together. The partnership quickly began to yield fruit, with their music earning widespread radio play and being featured several local compilations. Their breakthrough came with the hit ‘Banane Mavoko’ (clap your hands) featuring the late Jah Rich. They’ve also worked with names such as DJ Oskido, DJ Mthi, QT and vocalist Bantu Soul, among many others. On stage, Black Motion makes use of vocalists and keyboard players to support their DJ and percussionist act.
 
They soon began to receive international attention, with labels such as Tribe and Nulu releasing their tracks overseas. Signed to Kalawa Jazmee and Universal Records, they released their debut album, Talking to the Drums, in 2011. It features hits like ‘Father To Be’ ft. Dr Malinga, ‘Kakaramba’ and ‘Dimensions’. It was followed in late 2012 by Aquarian Drums. Black Motion has performed in the UK, Portugal, Angola, Namibia and Botswana. In March 2012 they rocked the prestigious Winter Music Conference in Miami in the US, returning again in 2013.
