RA Horizons: Cape Town
December 16, 2012

 

Famed for throwing some of the best parties around the world, Resident Advisor (RA) is excited to
announce that it will be coming to South Africa as part of its global event series: RA Horizons.
Last year RA celebrated 10 years with its X series, staging ten events in the most essential venues
in many of the world’s biggest electronic music hubs (London, Berlin, New York, Tokyo, etc.). RA
Horizons has a different objective. This time RA takes a journey down the road less travelled to
stage a series of parties that focus on the dedicated scenes that exist outside the established
global club circuit. Places with devout crowds, savvy promoters and great venues, but where you
can’t just stumble out the front door and see one of your favourite DJs every weekend.

So far we’ve brought Levon Vincent to China and Japan, Martyn to the Pacific Northwest, Julio
Bashmore to Scotland and Dyed Soundorom to Norway and shone the spotlight on a host of
hugely talented local artists. For our two events in South Africa, we’ve tapped RA’s #2 DJ in the
world and probably the biggest personality in house music today: Seth Troxler.
It’s always hard to know where to start with Troxler: the Michigan-born 20-something has become
an icon of club culture in the past few years, thanks to his label and DJ outfit (Visionquest) and his
countless gigs around the world, which include regular spots as a festival headliner or
performances at premiere clubs like fabric and DC-10 – the latter at which he enjoyed a residency
in the 2012 Ibiza season. His inimitable charisma behind the decks only adds to his performance
mastery.

RA founder Nick Sabine explains why he is excited about the Horizons series:
“ Our readers come together from the four corners of the globe to share in a collective experience
based on the music they love. After the success of our RA X series last year, we wanted to show
appreciation – and shine the spotlight on – the readers, clubbers, DJs and promoters who
contribute significantly to the worldwide electronic music community through their own dedicated
scenes. “

Our first event in South Africa will happen on Saturday, December 15th in Johannesburg, a city
whose long relationship with raves in the ’90s laid the groundwork for what has become one of the
most important and fertile (if under-appreciated) house music hubs in the world. We’re teaming up
with local promoters The Warm Up for a sunset session on the rooftop of the Citilec Building.
Troxler will be joined by local export and Innervisions signing Culoe De Song, Warm Up founder
Jack Gorton (AKA PhatJack), Jullian Gomes, Digital Rocket and Marshall.

The next night, Horizons will make its way to Cape Town for a party at The Assembly, a raw space
that spent the first part of its life as a manufacturing plant and is now home to one of Cape Town’s
best nightclubs. The main room will be soundtracked by Troxler, local techno torchbearers Killer
Robot, Flloyd Lavine and Thibo Tazz. Sunday party crew Cold Turkey will take care of the Annex, a
200-person cavern tucked away in the west wing of the venue and have invited their A-list of Rebel
Clef, Blotchy, Terrence Pearce, Big Space, Pierre Estienne, Richard the Third & Jakobsnake to
soundtrack the night.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale at 9am South African time on Wednesday November 14th
