Boomkat Product Review:
Hyperdub continue to blaze a trail around global ‘floors with a deadly Gqom EP from South Africa’s DJ Lag and OKZharp
Working with the more experienced studio hands of OKZharp, Gqom king DJ Lag’s signature style is buffed-up to optimal pressure while losing none of its raw, direct dancefloor traction.
In ‘Now What’ there’s a detectable extra space in-the-mix, and ’Steam One’ makes great use of sweet marimbas and sharp, pointillist drums, but it’s really all about the other two, namely the fiercely held stare-down pressure of ‘Nyusa’ with its viciously buzzing, distorted lead and speaker-worrying subs, and the pensile, unyielding dread of ‘Sambe’ which sounds like a super clenched, early Roska riddim.
