The vibe at the Orlando Stadium this past weekend was on another level as four sound systems battled it out for the Red Bull Culture Clash 2017 crown. AKA led the Top Boyz sound system and battled out against DJ Tira’s Durban Massacre sound system. Patoranking, Admiral & Jahseed with African Storm each represented their respective genres.
The hosts on the evening, Scoop and Thapelo Mokoena kept their audience entertained. In the end, it was DJ Tira and Durban Massacre Sound System that won over the crowd and took the coveted title.
Moved by his win, DJ Tira was proud to hoist up the winner’s title belt: “Winning this title means a lot to me because it shows people that Gqom and Durban house is here to stay, and will dominate and shape future sounds. That’s all we ever wanted to do – stay true to ourselves and where we come from. We gave people what they wanted and they responded to the genuine, heartfelt music we shared. That’s what it’s all about and we are proud to solidify our sound further. Thanks to the music lovers and supporters, it wouldn’t be possible without them.” said the DJ.
