South African gqom pioneer and producer DJ Lag is set to release his new single '3 Step Culo' on August 10th via London label and collective Goon Club Allstars. The new release follows the 22 year old producer's acclaimed 2016 self-titled debut EP for the same independent imprint.
The thrilling dancefloor heater '3 Step Culo' draws from the hard-hitting percussive sound of gqom made up of searing synthesisers, broken beat and hypnotic vocal samples to create a darker, bass-driven strain of house music. Also known as the 'Gqom King', DJ Lag was at the forefront of shaping the futuristic, explosive sound of gqom, the raw and distinctive style of drum-heavy dance music originating from the underground scene of Durban, South Africa in recent years and swiftly proliferating across the internet through the spread of social media.
DJ Lag's new single delves into the infectiously rhythmic and high-energy sound palette of his previous works, recorded fully in his home studio in Clermont, South Africa. He will be taking his unique brand of gqom on tour across Europe this summer with upcoming live dates at Outlook Festival in Croatia and Way Out West in Sweden. '3 Step Culo' will be followed by an EP for Goon Club Allstars later this year.
