Dirty Paraffin is "genre-defying"

We’ve been following The Fader’s Pitch Perfect documentary series since the start of the World Cup two weeks ago. In episode 2, The Fader documentary team receives a “short history of SA dance pop” from Johannesburg’s “genre-defying” duo, Dirty Paraffin. I’ve never heard of these guys before but after watching this video, I’m hooked. That party looks dope. But then again, everything looks better in black and white.

Check them out in their “Exhibit A” music video.
