This weekend GANGS OF BALLET won the MTV MAMA Award for Best Alternative for their debut album ‘yes/no/grey.’ The album was released in August 2013 through Universal Music South Africa. It was recorded at Openroom Studios in Greenside and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Darryl Torr (who also won a SAMA for best producer this year for the album). The album was mixed by Ryan Gilligan and overseen by Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Michael Brauer, and mastered by Electric Lady Studios in New York City.
