This megamix features all things disco, soul, funk and house as the duo have promised to provide the soundtrack to a summer of fun and "a party like no other".

The Disco Pirates, comprising of Shaun Duvet and Ronald Rowley, are also going on a South African tour over the coming months to bring the party to various venues around the country.
