The Remix

Channel: SABC1
TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Reality Competition, Music

DJs, singers and musical performers join up and compete for a cash prize and the chance to collaborate with one of South Africa's biggest music stars.

Ten trios - made up of a singer, producer/DJ and musical performer - have to work together to bring new flavour to existing tracks. They must create a unique sound while retaining the authenticity of the song, doing justice to the original composers and artists.

There are different themes to mix for every week, such as hip-hop, gqom or pop. In the final week, the groups' musical talent is stretched by having to compose their own original composition.

For all the details, including presenters and judges, go here:
