Warm, summery vibes from the musical metropolis of South Africa.
Gqom Oh! has teamed up once again with the collective Crudo Volta to deliver another banging mixtape, introducing the Sgubhu sound and a new variant of Gqom which are literally taking over the very dynamic sonic landscape of South Africa, but to a global audience. The project is titled Washa, a Zulu word used commonly among youths in Durban to epitomise a feeling of enthusiasm and delight. Literally it means " You got burnt" or "this track is on fire!" which tells you all you need to know.
Coinciding with the physical release of the mix via cassette, we are premiering an exclusive mix by nan Kolè aka Malumz, below. Get ready for some summer vibes to warm up our glacial winter.
