The Insert Mix Series combines art and music in a collection of mixes from a line of seminal DJs and producers. We intend to bring the music to a visual level with our favourite established designers, interpreting the music in graphic form.
Gqom or ‘Igqom’ is a sound emerging out of the South African House scene and has been gaining large amounts of attention internationally in the first half of 2015. The sound first onto our radar when Gqom trio Rudeboyz were announced to be releasing their self-titled EP on one of our favourite labels ‘Goon Club Allstars’.
The INSMIX that DJ and producer Kolè has put together for us features 12 exclusive tracks that are taken directly from the forthcoming release on GQOM OH called “GQOM OH! The sound of Durban”. A fitting title to represent the small coastal town of Durban, where this minimal House sound has its roots.
This INSMIX will take you on a journey of deep bass and booming kicks, painting a picture of the Durban sound. We expect Gqom to keep growing in popularity and for this forthcoming EP from GQOM OH to play a major part of it.
