I stumbled across the most wonderful video this morning highlighting Joburgs growing youth subculture and the changes within the city. Videos…or anything with this tone always make me smile and make me want to get up and dance around like a crazy person. I’m so excited to be part of something great in this city and it’s amazing to witness the changes going on everyday. Joburg is my home and my family and I flipping love it!

Over two days and nights in Johannesburg, South Africa, we travelled to illegal rooftop parties, warehouse raves, street fashion shoots and poolside jams to meet some of the young musicians, DJs, zine publishers and artists set on taking the SA scene global, and asked them how the city’s youth culture is changing. 
Features great music and interviews with Dirty Paraffin, Richard the Third, Desmond & The Tutus, MJ Turpin, Jamal Nxedlana (CUSS) and Khaya Sibiya AKA Bhubessi. Joburg…It’s like a movie.
