Product Description

Five-track EP representing the past, the present and the future of gqom -- the thunderous club sound from Durban, South Africa. The EP's A Side is dedicated to two of the genre's most prominent producers. DJ Lag is known as the "King of Gqom". Griffit Vigo, a real innovator in the gqom genre, has attained a legendary status amongst his peers. "Ree's Vibe" was the peak moment of DJ Lag's sets all over the world. Sbucardo is one of the most respected DJs around the townships of Durban. Featuring Abnormal on "IPhoyisa", whose lyrics in Zulu translate to "We at the club, Mr police man don't disturb us", the track represents gqom culture in Durban very well. Naked Boyz' "Story Teller" is characteristic of the Sgubhu style, a blend of gqom with more conventional house sounds, the new genre taking over Durban and finding its way onto mainstream radio. Scene kingpins Rude Boyz round off the release's line-up of gqom originators with "Umshunto". Includes download code which features bonus tracks from Griffit Vigo, DJ Lag, Sbucardo da DJ, and Naked Boyz.
