The adidas Originals Splitpiece campaign will culminate with a massive street party on Saturday, 23rd October in Newtown, JHB. The main act scheduled to play at the party is American turntablist legend and scratch DJ supreme – Craze.
The Originals Splitpiece campaign started on Wednesday 22nd September with renowned graffiti artist Falko One painting different mural characters in three major South African cities over the last three weeks. The completed O’Bra characters will be unveiled by Falko at the street party on Saturday.
On the dance floor, Craze will be joined by other exciting South African DJs including Milkshake, Shaun Duvet, Vinni Da Vinci, Euphonik, Household Funk, Crazy White Boy, Phat Jack and DJ Soosh.
Craze plays hip hop and practises turntablism and is the only DJ in history to claim the World DMC Champion trophy for 3 consecutive times – 1999, 2000 and 2001. Craze was Kanye West’s DJ for the hip hop star’s Glow in the Dark tour in 2008.
As part of the Splitpiece campaign, winners of the Splitpiece competition that has been running over the past three weeks have been invited to the party. Two of the winners that will go to the party could win tickets to the MTV EMA awards in Madrid on 7th November.
Tickets to the street party will be available at the door at Carfax on Saturday, 23rd October for R100.
