DJ Lag Headline Debut

20.00 — 02.00

DJ Lag of the South African coastal city of Durban, pioneered the sound that would come to be known as gqom – a Zulu word meaning drum or hit. Using little more than FruityLoops, while still at school he began making original gqom tracks, performing them at underground gigs and sharing them with the city’s taxi drivers who, in 2012, began using gqom tracks given to them by producers to attract customers.

Although rightfully known as a gqom pioneer, DJ Lag is a sonic explorer unafraid of moving across boundaries of sound and geography and easily capable of standing alongside the world’s biggest stars.

This May, we will experience a headline to remember when DJ Lag makes his London Headline Debut at Village Underground. Expect a transpiring World of exclusives as well as his well known musical assets!
