Boomkat Product Review:
Blank Mind bring the tally of Durban Gqom trax on vinyl to, like, at least two handfuls with four of Audioboyz’ rudely stripped and rugged darkside trips making their first appearance on wax.
DJ Motion, Atonic, MudPunk and Njeh are collectively known as Audioboyz, some of the key contributors to South Africa’s Kasimp3 node for new Gqom productions.
Following stacks of digital releases, their physical debut proper shells out four bony, narcotising examples of the current SA dance phenomena, starting up all slinky and nimble with the sloshing drum cadence and simmering pipes of Danger, and getting progressively darker thru the course of Gibbon 5’s dry, gasping electro-jack, whilst Insomnia uncannily comes off like some early Belgian techno raver stranded in a township, wide-eyed and petrified, before they pull out their doomiest strings and clonqing drums in the clipped dip of The Legendary.
BIG looks for the DJs and dancers!
