Australian DJ Thomas Jack and Vintage Culture (Brazil) are the first two international electronic music acts announced to play at the Caribbean Twist Beach Bar at this year’s Rocking the Daisies, South Africa’s premiere eco-friendly Music and Lifestyle Festival, happening from the 1st to the 4th of October this year, at Cloof Wine Estate, Darling.
These two phenomenal DJs will form part of a stellar line-up for the Caribbean Twist Beach Bar, alongside local artists Miss CJ, Burn to Tape, Stone Age Citizens, Lamagier and Brother, with more acts to be announced soon.
Hailing from Bemboka, Australia, at 20 years old Thomas Jack’s rising star and future are shining as bright as the music he creates. His hit single “Final Speech” led him to a viral tear on top of the HypeM charts, where he continued a successful run with follow up tracks such as his stellar remix of ‘Little Talks’ for Of Monsters and Men as well as the extra smooth remix for Adrian Lux’s hit single ‘Teenage Crime’. His smooth tracks ebb and flow, sometimes unpredictably, but always beautifully.
Expect an electric set filled with pleasure, sax, flutes, trumpets, and almost every kind of instrument you can imaging. Bringing jazz orchestras for a unique style that appeals to the masses, this developing artist never ceases to amaze.
Brazilian producer Lukas Ruiz, popularly known as Vintage Culture, has dedicated himself to creating a unique brand of Nu-Disco that focuses on blending the sounds of retro synth-pop with the innovative feels of the modern Deep House/Nu-Disco scene. Growing up Lukas fell in love with the sounds of Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk and found inspiration in the music of the 80’s and 90’s. He began combining elements of these styles with the sexy rhythmic feels of the Brazilian dance scene and became the much loved DJ that is Vintage Culture. The beginning of 2013 marked the birth of this project and has since garnered support from leading players in the deep house arena, such as Teenage Mutants, Betoko, Kolombo, Amine Edge & DANCE, Danny Daze, Thomaz Krauze, Gabe, Saccao, Adriatique and more.
Caribbean Twist is certainly shaking things up at the Beach Bar this October at Rocking the Daisies. The very cheeky, fruity cocktail-in-a-bottle, promises to bring more of the Caribbean and island lifestyle to the festival. The Caribbean Twist Beach Bar will be curated by We love Summer on the Friday, Rocking the Daisies on the Saturday and Tropical Roast on the Sunday.
We Love Summer – Friday 2nd October Caribbean Twist Beach Bar at RTD:

Tropical Roast – Sunday 4th October Caribbean Twist Beach Bar at RTD:
The Tropical Roast is a project born from great friendship, a deep love of music and many years events experience. Based on such foundations it’s no wonder that in two short years the brand has built such a dedicated following. Renowned for always going that extra mile, they create dance floors that heave and churn with an energy and intimacy that has since become their hallmark.
