Olmeca Tequila and Mad Decent are blocking off the city streets in Joburg and Cape Town for one day each of world-class entertainment and street-style partying on the 8th and 9th of February 2014. Los Angeles-based record label Mad Decent are well known for their annual Block Party series across the United States and are home to DJ’s Major Lazer, Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus – our international headliners for the first-time events happening outside of North America.
Grammy nominated founder, owner and head honcho of Mad Decent Records and lead producer of Major Lazer, Diplo has risen through the ranks and asserted himself as one of the most pioneering producers of all time. Major Lazer has toured major music festivals including Coachella, Pitchfork, Sassquatch and Sonar, as well as worked with the likes of Beyonce, La Roux and Hot Chip. As Major Lazer, Diplo also retreated to Jamaica to work on the production of Snoop Dogg ‘s previous album “Snoop Lion Reincarnated”.
Joining the decks in Jozi and CT is 26 year old Moombahton mastermind Dillon Francis who’s made his mark on the global scene with a sexy genre of music he describes as “reggae tone meets Dutch House meets anything you want it to be.”
Chicago DJ duo Flosstradamus bring an irresistible sense of fun to every single set, whether it’s a sweat-soaked nightclub, in front of thousands at Lollapalooza or right here in February on SA soil. Expect an extra-hype stage show, Flosstradamous is coming… get ready to juke!
With a reputation for throwing some of the best parties in the country, Olmeca and Seed Experiences are collaborating with Mad Decent to ensure that this one raises the bar yet again. A selection of top supporting local DJ’s and urban entertainment for the Olmeca Mad Decent Block Party will be announced over the next few weeks.
