Happy tuesday dance music lovers,

I’m excited to share with you an exclusive track from Tiësto & Blk Jks called Dreaming for Smirnoff Experience South Africa. Tiësto will perform the track at Smirnoff Experience South Africa ‘Mashup Street’ on May 15, 2010 in an aircraft hangar in Johannesburg - an event that celebrates the fusion of vibrant South African music and street cultures, mixing modern and classic genres of music, fashion art and mixology.

You can watch the live performance of Dreaming (Smirnoff Exclusive) Tiësto v BLK JKS on May 15, 2010 via livestream at facebook.com/smirnoff

“Dreaming” Tiësto vs BLK JKS ... An exclusive download for Smirnoff
“Dreaming” has the Dutch dance music superstar’s signature all over it, with a brooding synthy intro and a building bassline pulsating then breaking to reveal BLK JKS’ intense vocal. The electro-trance breakdown follows a cinematic mix of rising strings and a chorus of call and response using a bass hook of epic proportion, infused with blips of township funk and kwaito bop.
Tiësto is no stranger to collaborations having recently worked with the likes of Nelly Furtado and Jónsi from Sigur Rós, but even the man himself admitted this one was something special:

Tiësto comments:
“Over the past year, I’ve done several collaborations with artists from a variety of genres, but have never worked with an artist from South Africa. I was excited by the opportunity to work with an act like BLK JKS, who are influenced by their South African roots, but also have some dance music sensibility. I’m looking forward to playing “Dreaming” live for the first time on May 15 at Smirnoff Experience™South Africa and on tour this summer. ”

BLK JKS said in response:
“Some people don’t realise it, but we are big fans of dance music. We’re honoured to be selected by Tiësto and Smirnoff to take part in this collaboration. We’ve created a straight up dance track, which is not what we would normally produce on our own. I think “Dreaming” will surprise our own fans, and hopefully open us up to new ones.”
