Best Jozi Produced Road Trip Music

We all know that good tunes can make or break a road trip. Thanks to our little roadtrip playlist, that won’t happen any time soon.


The Moths

Heading down a long dusty road, listening to surf rock can only be good for you. The Moths is a three piece instrumental band that will leave you feeling like you’re the last man standing in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Go for their song Snake Eyes. It’s so good.

Black Coffee

For nearly two decades Black Coffee has given us some of the best afro pop dance music to drive to. Since his groundbreaking performance at the Red Bull Music Acadamy in 2003 to his latest releases, the 40-year-old producer just keeps on bringing the heat. Our favourite tracks to put the pedal to metal would be the classic, Stimela and his latest hit, We Dance Again.

Desmond and the Tutus

If you ever wondered what a Joburg summer would sound like, look no further than our hometown heroes Desmond and the Tutus. Just do yourself a favour and get your hands on their Tuckshop album, which released in 2008, and listen to it until it breaks. Classic road trip and overall feel good music.

Gang of Instrumentals

Since 2007 Gang of Instrumentals have been producing hit songs as if it’s not hard work. From jamming internationally to getting local crowds jumping, there’s a very good reason why we love this afro-pop hip-hop flash and smash group. Our favourites to add to the road trip compilation would be Woza December and My Number One.

Mi Casa

What compilation would be finished without including afro-dance music inspired by jazz? Mi Casa has been going at it for a while now and have proven themselves worthy of being played on all major radio stations. You already know which songs we’re going to choose, don’t you? Well, Jika needs to go on there just because it is so catchy and then of course La Vida.
