Durban’s Rudeboyz (aka Massive Q and Andile T) return to Goon Club Allstars to follow up their self-titled 2015 debut EP with new record, ‘Gqomwave’.
Widely acknowledged as Gqom originators, alongside Goon Club label mate DJ Lag, Rudeboyz’ raw, energetic compositions took the sounds of Durban’s townships global back in 2015, opening doors for a whole new generation of South African artists in the process. They themselves hail from from Mount Mariah, just outside the KwaMashu township in North Durban.
The duo’s latest record, ‘Gqomwave’, is comprised of four tracks, each bursting with the intense, driving rhythms and boundless energy their productions have become renowned for. Gqom is again the core around which the whole EP functions, as blazing sirens and charging beats play out on opener ‘Major Turn Up’, but subtle, stylistic nuances point to a growing maturity in their work.
The springy elasticity of ‘Bounce Back’ and the sharp, stripped back drums on relentless club burner ‘No Mercy’ each offer different, smouldering takes on the Gqom sound, while final track ‘Asjableni’ features the gritty, hypnotic vocals of long-time collaborator T_D Snaxx who tragically passed away earlier this year.
