Boomkat Product Review:
Ice cold gqom direct from source in Durban, SA via London’s Hi-NRG - knee knocking bass trills and martial percussion to darken the dance
A “super-group” of as-yet-undisclosed membership, Da Gold Dust trade in 24 karat nastiness. ‘Chaos Da Return’ sounds like it was recorded in a mine shaft with 10 second reverbs, with boots-on-the-ground trampling rhythms and knife-edge string pad tension holding the heaviest chthonic pressure. Danker yet, ‘Dance Nation’ summons heavier bass trills and monotone chant that will sound deadly in the fug of a proper club setting, and ’Sizokhonga’ eases off a degree to allow more space in the drums, building incrementally to oblivion.
