WEHEARTBEAT & SOULECTION
JOE KAY & THE WHOOLIGAN AT POOLSIDE
This February, Weheartbeat are proud to represent the South African beats scene alongside LA’s major beats collective, Soulection, for one night only at Maboneng’s Poolside, hot off the back of the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival. Here at Weheartbeat, our presence within the various spheres of beat-centric sounds could not have become what it is without inspiration from pre-existing forces such as Soulection, as well as the various producer-DJs who have made our cause worth every second, including Mellow Orange’s Freddie Joachim & Yusai, Eric Lau and Chief & Deheb who have graced both our shores and lineups. While the summer sun is still on our side, Weheartbeat residents Symatics and JustThemba , as well as the legendary Raiko and Y?NO$$, will accompany Soulection co-founders Joe Kay and Julio Galvez, aka The Whooligan in a divine day-to-night exploration into the music we have come to love, and have yet to fall in love with. Join us as we experience the future unfold with the sound of tomorrow!
VENUE: POOLSIDE, MABONENG PRECINCT, JOHANNESBURG
DATE: 15 FEBRUARY 2015
