First Listen: Citizen Boy – ‘Hlasela (ft Thalerh)’

Dark, hard-hitting gqom with one of Durban’s stars, Citizen Boy.

Young Durban producer Citizen Boy has been making waves in the now globally recognised gqom scene since back in 2012 when he was just thirteen years old. Fast forward eight years and the Mafia Boyz (fka Dope Boyz) co-founder has found global acclaim, counting Kode9 and Kanye West among his fans as well as sound-tracking a Nike Jordan campaign.

His new tape From Avoca Hills To The World is the eleventh release from Gqom Oh! and charts his progression from those early days of the Mafia Boyz in Avoca Hills, to their present status as global champions of the scene pushing the harder and darker side of gqom.

The thirteen track retrospective tape includes six brand new tracks from Citizen boy as well as fellow Mafia Boyz member Novelity. You can exclusively listen to the tough, rolling opening track, ‘Hlasela (ft Thalerh)’ below and order the full tape through Gqom Oh!’s bandcamp page.

From Avoca Hills To The World is released February 21st via Gqom Oh!
