The Gqom Oh! head offers up an infectious free download ahead of his Tropical Tottenham EP.
As head of Gqom Oh!, the label championing the high octane club music of Durban in South Africa, Rome-born Nan Kolè has built a deep understanding of the city’s sounds and the local artists he works with.
The label first dropped The Sound Of Durban teaser EP last year – containing popular remixes from Durban’s Citizen Boy, Mafiaboyz and Cruel Boyz – and followed that up with Gqom Oh! The Sound Of Durban Vol. 1, which showcased much of the city’s fledgling club producers, including Formation Boyz and Emo Kid, whose hard-hitting contribution to the Gqom Oh! X Crudo Volta Mixtape we premiered back in June.
Ahead of his new EP, Tropical Tottenham, Nan Kolè is offering up a free download of ‘West Green Riddim’, which pays homage to West Green Road in his adopted home of north London. It’s an exhilarating club cut, containing an inspirational sample you may recognise from Instagram of a kid urging his friends to train harder. Press play and download below.
