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, Asia and, more recently, America. 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.
As part of his single-minded dedication to taking GQOM from Durban’s
underground to new audiences, September 2017 saw DJ Lag embark on a
world tour which has seen him play more than 15 dates in Canada, the UK,
Europe and America. Now in 2018, the GQOM King takes the sound to even more new territories as he heads off for his second world tour, playing to audiences in Russia, India and many more.
