SOME of South Africa's leading house DJs will set beaches in Miami, US, ablaze with their music sounds next month.

DJs Fresh, Euphonik, Milkshake, Fistaz, Mahoota, Pepsi, Black Coffee and Culoe de Song will hook up with their international counterparts such as Master Key, Nick Holder and Keith Thompson to wow music fans at the Miami Showcase on March 26.

This is an exclusively South African music showcase, the first initiative by local DJs to ever take place in the US. This is essentially a gig hosted by SA DJs, with the rest of the international DJs restricted to the status of guest DJs.

South Africans in Miami, who want to connect with their country's contemporary music sounds, should head for the South Seas Hotel and Pilika.

The gig is part of the festivities at the US Winter Music Conference taking place at about the same time.

These DJs have certainly paid their dues on the local music scene. Their impressive résumés speak for themselves in terms of their status on the local music scene.

Some of them have already made their names on the international music scene and this gig confirms that they are up there with the best.
