Johannesburg's CBD is fast becoming a happy place. Reverberating to the rhythm of Africa, the DownTown Music Hub (DTMH), situated in the heart of Johannesburg's evolving CBD, is so much more than just a studio or rehearsal space. It's a recording studio, a venue, a training and development resource, and an incubation node for start-ups in the music industry. It is a space with unique features and a remarkable heritage that inspires and ignites the musical soul of the city. "DownTown Studios started out in 1979 as RPM Recording Studios and it proudly flies the flag as one of the oldest surviving big recording studios in Johannesburg," says Chola Makgamathe, chief executive, DTMH. "It offers artists a truly inspirational and openly creative space and has done so for decades."
