change is very important to everyone. its a sign of moving on. a sign of better things. although there's change for the worst: there's a bit of chance that its preparing you for the better, so inevitably change is good. i think its in a way you steer it; in a direction of where you want to this change to take you.
change: embrace it!

Chilling with Vice talking about how music is such a great aspect of life. How it makes you feel in a way you can’t explain. How we know people like kid Fonque, wireless g, Leftoo, Kuriosoul & Gilles Peterson. These are some of very few names that got me open to a whole new world of music. Pleasure, in all its glory. Music we love you! ☺
THESIS Social Jam Sessions was inspired by such a vast range of music. Monthly we give a report back illustrating a new point of view about Soweto & a different kind of lifestyle. Change is undergoing at the Thesis Concept Store & for that all will be unveiled on 4 March 2012.
On the decks we got the finest Djs our ears can listen to. We have Trevor the Japanese, Khumza, Housecats & PlayKayStat. Tickling our funny bones is Jason Goliath. Band on stage is The Fridge. Do yourself a favour & come through. Bring your friends too & lets just chill out!!!

Molofo cultural bowl situated in Mofolo, Soweto! Is remembered as far as the 1970’s. A great place to have existed in the hearts of all Sowetans. SA: you know about it. World: you know about it too. Named after legendary poet, writer & author: Thomas Mofolo. 5 roses got into the mix & gave the bowl a refreshing feeling. Hence now we all call it 5 Roses Superbowl. It was made for funerals, conferences, weddings & festivals. It had a little lake running behind it, giving it that warm feeling of a festival. And it was perfect for festivals. It had a little Centre & offices where youth & community development was exercised on a daily basis. The history is rich with local & abroad artists preforming to thousands of people. We’ll miss the original structure, art & culture has promised a come back. I bet its even going to be better than before.
THESIS did a tribute to 5 Roses superbowl. Its part of our heritage & it’s a landmark for Mofolo. Just like the Thesis Concept Store. Crossing our fingers for a modern, fresh & innovative structure to be built. Hope your eyes enjoy!

A chance to associate with Nike was never on my mind, especially through running. Which is something I do to benefit myself. Being a friend of Nike has installed in me confidence and has made me more comfortable running in my environment. Wednesdays have become half day for me at work as I have to make way to Rosebank for the once a week Nike Run Club starting at 17:30.
Thesis Concept Store in Soweto being my everyday zone means #RunJozi will be removed from reminders on my phone. This is because there is a pretty cool painted wall you can't go without noticing just outside Thesis. For me it will be a constant reminder as it is the first thing I spot when I get off the taxi, walk to the shop and that's always been my favorite space to take random pictures.
#RunJozi is to be the greatest experience in my relationship with Nike. For me its not about being number 1 but seeing Jozi people [especially the youth] come out to take part in such positive event. People have a chance to run through Jozi , have fun, network and take back the city. Unless they never had it. I'm hoping to see you there.

Dilla was an American hip producer that was a beat icon. He was the master of a very saturated industry(well like any other one I guess). He emerged from the underground hip hop scene in Detriot, Michigan. Produced some of the best albums for Erikah badu, Slum Village, Dwele, Common, Janet Jackson, Ghostface Killer, Busta Rhymes & Tribe Called Quest to mention a few. He passed on in 2006 from a rare blood illness he was fighting for years. A true artist like Amy Winehouse, Micheal Jackson & moses molelekwa!
Stussy was hooking him up with some gear before he passed on. James Dewitt Yancey is his birth name & his music was his right of passage.Stussy honoured his memory by doing a range of Ts in his name in Feb 2010, marking the 4 years since he passed on. It was long overdue since he really dug the brand. Here are some of the styles they had. Well this year, last Friday would be 6 years since his passing & he'd be 38. Our resident DJ AirMaxOwe did a Dilla tribute, since his music has been one of TSJSs influences. It’s a very dope mix, so enjoy!

The term Avant-Garde refers to any cutting edge movement led by a small group of people to open new doors within their realm of interest. The Avant-Garde (Vintage Lounge) movement seeks to identify and give platform to more sophisticated than regular dance music, on the scale of Broken Beats, NuJazz and Electronica/Lounge.
We decided to take a chill pill in January, and make sure we deliver quality Avant Garde guests in the next upcoming months.
We kick-start the year in style with two legendary guests:
GREG MALOKA (The Maestro): well known for his soulful signature sound, with releases such as the classic "What's Phat Pussycat 3", he's also a founding member of DJU who are responsible for the South African Music Conference. Greg spear-headed popular radio station YFM into a solid brand, then later appointed MD/Station Manager at Kaya FM. He's not only a musical maestro, but also a creative genie who has his hands on both Branding & Advertising, which simply explains why he's called "THE MAESTRO".
THE JEZREEL: Hails from Mamelodi, Pretoria, a true Avant Gardist with a super eclectic taste, will surely blow a lot of minds. He let's the music speak for itself.
DATE: Friday 10th Feb 2012
VENUE: Rockerfella, Soweto
COVER CHARGE: R30
Trev The Japanese
