What do you get when [[DJ Tiësto]] and the BLK JKS team up? Something like "Dreaming", a massive trance club banger with brooding synths, a killer bass hook, blips of township funk and kwaito bop, plus Lindani's intense vocals.

Tiësto talking about the collabo and the May 15th event
"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 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."
Smirnoff Experience South Africa 'Mashup Street' is an event that celebrates the fusion of vibrant South African music and street cultures. Tiësto will preside over this one-of-a-kind experience as the headline talent. Mixing modern and classic genres of music, fashion art and mixology, 'Mashup Street' provides the ultimate canvas for Tiësto and BLK JKS to bring their creative vision to the world.
