DJ Lag is giving spring a bounce with the release of a brand new single featuring up-and-coming Durban vocalist, NOTA.
Titled “Jungle”, the track is the first in a series of singles that will be released from now until the end of 2020. In February, DJ Lag will release a mini-album as the kick-off to what looks to be another landmark year for the South African artist.
“Jungle” featuring NOTA has been mixed by Chris Tabron, a New York-based producer and mixer who is known for his work with a diverse range of global artists including Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, Common, The Strokes, Lianne La Havas and Battles.
The track continues DJ Lag’s journey into music, layering a club-ready gqom beat with off-kilter synths and fizzing breakdowns, giving NOTA an expansive musical canvas for his vocals.
Since 2015 DJ Lag has established himself as a world-class sonic innovator and taken one of the exciting electronic music movements of the 21st century from South Africa into the global spotlight – all while under the age of 25.
Although rightfully known as “the king of gqom”, DJ Lag is sonic explorer unafraid of moving across boundaries of sound and geography and easily capable of standing alongside the world’s biggest stars. The most high-profile of the latter was when he was tapped to produce “My Power” for Beyoncé’s 2019 Grammy-nominated album The Lion King: The Gift.
“Jungle” featuring NOTA is the latest release from one of South African music’s most consistently exciting artists.
