Calling

SVBKVLT
Beijing-based audio-visual group Zaliva-D channel the darkness and shuddering rhythms of South African gqom music on ‘Calling’, ricocheting snappy hi-hats and snares atop tectonic bass shudders. Fractured vocal samples lend the EP a ceremonial quality, particularly on the maddened and trippy ‘Groan’. A trio of remixes are included too, Durban-based gqom stalwart Citizen Boy effortlessly rejigging Zaliva-D’s weirdo production into an outright banger with his remix of ‘Groan’.
