Check out Black Motion:



 

Robert aka DJ Murder teamed up with Thabo aka Smol to form Black Motion in 2010. The two have been in the music production business for about 5 years or so. Their breakthrough came when they joined SPIRIT MOTION where they produced the hit single "Banane Mavoko."

The song was so BIG that Dj Oskido licensed the song for his compilation CD Oskido's 10th Commandment. 

TRIBE RECORDS UK came along and signed the song for international digital release. Black Motion have other singles featured on Mmthi's Essential Mix 6 - "Bhana Shilolo" feat. Zulu and Quantized Mix 6 - "Set Me Free" feat. XoliM.

NULU Records followed suit by signing "Mumi Wango" feat. Soulflow, which saw the song being remixed by the likes of Manoo and Antonello Coghe & Rancido

Ocha Records Mzantsi thought they won't be left behind, and they signed one of the biggest songs of 2011 "Set Me Free" feat. XoliM. This package contained the heavyweights: Master Kev & Tony Loreto, Bang the Drum (Jihad Muhammad), Ezel, Dj Qness and Black People. 

The group signed a licensing deal with Kalawa Records in 2011, which saw them releasing their first double CD album titled Talking to the Drums. The release was comprised of hit songs like "Father to Be" feat. the energitic Dr. Malinga, Kakaramba feat. Celimpilo, "Dimesions" feat. Lando and many more.

2011 was so big for the duo as they went on to do remixes for Dj Qness feat. Malehlokoa - Time, Black Coffee feat. Zakes/Tume - Bum Bum, Djeff feat. Sandy Spady - One Night
Their sound brought upon the new revolution where almost every single song that got released from there on was titled Black Motion regardless of the fact that they didnt't work on it. 

If Black Motion's past accomplishments are anything to go by, 2014 and beyond promises a bright future for the duo.
