It's been a while since Durban heavyweights Audioboyz last laid down a Gqom sermon. And with four tracks they're making up for lost time. Clearly inspired by the more techno-fused side of their city's melting pot, each track teeters into so many styles while remaining on its own. There's a dubby almost progressive feel to "African Conga", "Spotlight" takes us deep into the townships with its aggy, steppy dynamic while "Monster" takes us even further down the Gqom rabbit hole with an array of twist bass textures and abyssal kick spaces. Finally "Drifting Away" hits with the type of bruk-busted rhythm you'd expect IG Culture or Dego to play. Rise up!
