Global Breakthrough South Africa: Sir Norman Jay!!

I would hate to compare Cape Town with Ibiza, mainly because I have never been there, but also I think I have a pretty good idea what it’s like. Red sweaty yobs on ecstasy at 200bpm. Anyhoo some people are touting Cape Town as the next Ibiza, namely the “industry experts” at DJ magazine, UK (The red sweaty ones). Cape Town has so much more than Ibiza, history, heritage, culture and, many more varied/scenic places to throw up.

Ibiza or not, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that Sir Norman Jay was to be playing at Caprice in Camps Bay!! Jay kicks ass. The last time I heard him live was at Bondi beach pavilion 12 years ago, before vinyl was even invented.

His appearance is part of a tour called Global Breakthrough, which by the looks of it is an extremely ambitious project: With unbelievable sounding venues like “The Predator tank” at the V@A Aquarium! and a Wine Cellar at the Bloemendal Estate. Cynic that I am, something tells me this is too good to be true… My hunches are itching further at the fact that


the dates that are circulating seem to be conflicting. So for reliable schedules check out (both of which are down right now?) and to be sure. If you are a fan of club music you will not want to miss this. If they pull it off that is. Tickets on sale at
