about

Young Durban producer Sleeping Buddah's s/t ep presents three Gqom killers.

***Boomkat Product Review***

Killer Gqom from Durban’s Sleeping Buddha for Hakuna Kulala, the sister label of Uganda’s amazing Nyege Nyege Tapes. Keeping the levels high after aces from Slikback, MC Yallah, Rey Sapienz and Disco Vumbi, the label looks due south to the virulent sound of South African taxi techno, or Gqom, with Sleepign Buddha’s debut volley. Frozen, nut-crack drums and cold sweat-inducing bass drones pave the way for stinging strings, sirens and tart trance stabs in ‘Goro’, before ‘Onimusha’ keens off on an even darker path with some of the finest, trippiest soundscaping that we’ve heard on a Gqom cut, and ‘Tengu’ balances the mood between lighter, breathy vox and chords, but it’s ultimately still dread AF and irresistibly rugged. Don’t miss!!!
