#Review | How To Make It Pop: Red Bull Culture Clash [In Pictures]

Red Bull Culture clash delivered the niceties on Saturday night in what turned into a lesson in how to package South African pop culture for a fickle audience.

Vibez were cold. War was rough. Each one of the four crews — AKA’s Top Boyz; Admiral & Jahseed’s Afrikan Storm Soundsystem; DT Tira’s Durban Massacre; and Patoranking’s Red Hot Soundsystem — packed  their toughest selections and presented them in front of Orlando Stadium, which was packed from the stage to the mid-field, with on-lookers flanking the sides, from the stadium seats right up to the VIP/media area located to the left.

DJ Tira took it home to eThekwini, where him and Sox created black excellence and named it Durban Kwaito more than 10 years ago.
