DJ Lag has teamed up with Sinjin Hawke for the next single from his forthcoming album, 'Meeting With The King'.
The two producers have enlisted the vocal talent of South African artist Manthe Ribane to contribute to 'Raptor', which sees Lag's percussive-heavy gqom sound form natural bedfellows with Hawke's colourful melodies, as heard on previous Fractal Fantasy output.
Griffit Vigo will release a new EP, ‘Art Is Talking’, via Belgian label Maloca this week.
DJ Lag has shared details of his debut album, 'Meeting With The King'.
Due out in November, the 15-track album sees the producer team up with a number of artists from his native South Africa, collaborating with representatives from the gqom and amapiano scenes. Sinjin Hawke also features on one track.
Lag has also shared the first of three songs to emerge ahead of the album's release, in the form of lead cut 'Lucifer', which features amapiano vocalist Lady Du. The track, which you can check out below, is out now via Black Major and Lag's own Ice Drop imprint.
KG has shared a new single featuring South African star Toya Delazy. ‘Nzinga’ is taken from a forthcoming EP due to land next month.
The track combines afrobeat, gqom, hard drum and R&B elements, paying homage to the roots of both artists involved. "Nzinga name wise is of African origin, has multiple definitions — Higher Level, Beautiful, Queen of Africa. Queen Nzinga fought for the Independence and stature of her kingdoms against the Portuguese in a reign that lasted 37 years," KG said of the track name.
