We touched upon Qgom yesterday and here’s some more courtesy of Spoek:
This month I am premiering my documentary Future Sound of Mzansi (www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A0ZzKybU1U). Future Sounds of Mzansi is a documentary directed by Spoek Mathambo and Lebogang Rasethaba which aims to explore, express and interrogate, South Africa’s electronic music landscape.
This edition of the mix series is an ode to the Kwazulu Natal dominating style called Qgom.
Much like a lot of other mysterious subgenres, Qgom is filled with it’s special quirks…lo quality MP3s…weirdly named songs…unlabeled MP3s…hard to find artists.
Mixing lo-fi MP3s always gives songs a strange ethereal distance. In a way, songs are reduced to a crude essense, some of the subtleties are lost. If a song still bangs as a 96kBps MP3 there’s definitely a banger there. I’m not mad at that.
Enjoy the bangers.
