Durban gqom originator DJ Lag and London's OKZharp have come together on new EP, 'Steam Rooms'. You can listen to 'Nyusa' below.
Incoming on Hyperdub 19th July, 'Steam Rooms' features four original tracks and will be available on vinyl and digital.
The EP draws influence from both the Durban and London dance scene, with title 'Steam Rooms' taken from the Durban nickname for local clubs.
Speaking about the EP, DJ Lag said, “We were inspired by that moment in the club when things get hazy and bendy and glowy. It has South Durban via South London DNA, so inevitably there's a heavy kwai-gqom vibe with a grimey funky London twist running through it”.
DJ Lag and OKZharp's 'Steam Rooms' is available 19th July on Hyperdub.
