RBMA explore Gqom in new series of H∆SHTAG$

A trip to Durban to speak with some of the scene’s main proponents.

As part of H∆SHTAG$ Season II, Red Bull Music Academy have shared four mini-documentaries exploring the role of the Internet in the rise of global music subcultures – with episodes titled Health Goth, Kawaii, grime and Gqom.

In their exploration of Gqom, RBMA head to the scene’s birthplace of Durban to speak with the likes of DJ Lag, Rudeboyz and Emo Kid, and then head to London to explore its global following with record label Goon Club All Stars – who’ve previously released EPs from DJ Lag and Rudeboyz – as well as Hyperdub artist Okzharp.
