Premiere: Griffit Vigo ‘Superman’
Gqom originator Griffit Vigo dishes up six new cuts of percussive heat on Belgian label, Maloca. Hear ‘Superman’ now
Griffit Vigo will release a new EP, ‘Art Is Talking’, via Belgian label Maloca this week.
Following his 2020 album, ‘I Am Gqom’, on GQOM OH!, the Durban-born artist, who is one of the originators of the gqom sound alongside DJ Lag, Rudeboyz, Citizen Boy and others, serves up six new tracks of percussive heat. There’s a cinematic quality to these tracks; their driving, syncopated rhythms are underscored by tension-building bass drones, organic samples and vocal trills, locking into a dancefloor vibe while demonstrating a knack for more expansive sonic world-building.
Listen to ‘Superman’ from the EP below. ‘Art Is Talking’ will be released this Friday 3rd December. Pre-order it here.
