DJ Lag (South Africa) – Small World Music Festival Afterparty
Co-produced with Harbourfront Centre and sponsored by TD Bank and Lagunitas IPA.
Presented in partnership with The Academy Presents and Wintor Massiv.
History will remember DJ LAG GQOMking as a pioneer who propelled the quintessentially Durban Gqom sound beyond the confines of the coastal city, straight into the capitals of the international electronic music industry.
At first listen, it might not appear that Gqom’s minimalist, bass-heavy sound would take Lwazi Asanda Gwala from Clermont township in Durban to commanding dancefloors in Europe and Asia. But DJ Lag’s superb production skills have played a big part in transforming a sub-genre of house – one that began by soundtracking taxi trips around Durban – to an enviably innovative participant in the global scene.
