Watch a Documentary About Johannesburg's House Scene

Featuring interviews from DJs, producers, promoters, and label heads, the 20-minute piece tells stories of hardship, apartheid, and the resulting poverty and struggle which Johannesburg's people overcame, partially through local dance music and its growing patronage.
