Citizen Boy – “Indaba Ka Bani Besibenuza”
The excellent Gqom Oh! label returned in July with its third release titled Gqom Oh! X Crudo Volta Mixtape. The Durban, South Africa based label specializes the emerging Gqom genre, combining slow motion house with intricate polyrhythms and stark, undulating synth pads. One of many highlights from their latest mixtape is “Indaba Ka Bani Besibenuza” from Mafia Boyz member Citizen Boy. The track dives deep, propelled by a crumpled kick drum, heavy toms, hypnotizing chants, tolling bells, and topped with an atmospheric horror show drone.
