While we are cooking away at our new season we are bringing back this gem that really deserves to be heard again.


Black Motion is Thabo “Smol” Mabogwane and Robert “Murdah” Mohosana, the duo who have been flying the flag high for Tshwane, the undisputed house music capital of South Africa, for the last decade.


Their percussion-driven electronic dance music and wildly energetic performances, helped establish them as purveyors of South Africa’s burgeoning house scene, as they travelled the world and climbed the charts to praise and critical acclaim. 


From their early roots in Shoshanguve, to their deeply spiritual musical journey, Smol chats the importance of their Pedi culture and how they built their sound on the foundation of the drum, executed in the familiar style of house music.
