As we noted about a month ago, BLK JKS will be playing the opening ceremonies of World Cup 2010 on June 10th in their home city of Johannesburg at the Orlando Stadium, alongside such superstars as Alicia Keys, Angelique Kidjo, Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, Juanes, Shakira, Tinariwen, Vieux Farka Toure. Someone on that list has requested BLK JKS play along for one song. Try and guess who it is. Hint: it won’t be terrible. The next night, the band celebrates the release of their new EP, Zol!, at Bassline in Jo’burg before heading to Europe for some festival jamming with Farka Toure. To prep everyone for the insanity that is about to go down in SA, they just sent through this new drum & bass remix of old standby “Lakeside,” a song from their debut album and longtime FADER staple.
