Watch Kids Dance Through Streets Of Langa To Skrillex

Skrillex may have been here to headline Ultra but in all honesty he made more social media waves DJing at Untamed Youth and annoying business owners in Long Street than anything else.

While staying at the One & Only the dubstepper did touristy things like visit the 2 Oceans Aquarium and a helicopter peninsular round trip, but he also spent some time in Langa, with the below video being the fruit of that labour.

Skrillex’s time spent in Langa comes as no surprise as he told NY Times last year, “I was in South Africa and went to this township, and the kids there had really cheap smartphones, and they could still build a window into another world, then adapt that to their culture. Some kids had D.J. gear in a little shack, and they were making this hack between house and African, like African house. Kids! Like, 8 years old. That’s where I’m getting ideas.”

About the video, Skrillex wrote on Facebook:

While hanging in Cape Town Jas Davis and I shot a little video with our friend Siphie Fassie and the kids of Langa Township dancing around. Track ID: “KILLA (feat. Elliphant) – Skrillex & Wiwek”

Watch the video below.
