In the South African city of Durban, new stories are being born in a dancefloor language called gqom. This bass music often opens in a crescendo, takes a few shortcuts in 4/4, and gathers pace into a polyrhythmic frenzy. Everything happens in a DIY-oriented universe, grafting organic and homemade samples (dog barks, whip lashes, drumming sounds). There is a line of continuity with the South African house movement, though with totally new elements from the sounds of Dubstep. This sampler EP features tracks by Cruel Boyz from Mdantsane, Eastern Cape; Mafia Boyz (average age 17); and Citizen Boy.
