Watch out for Chris Kets’ iteration of Major Lazer’s “Bumaye” remix video with DJ Maphorisa and DJ Raybel

Congrats to our friend and collaborator Chris Kets and the team behind the Major Lazer’s ‘Bumaye’ Remix video with DJ Maphorisa and DJ Raybel. Catch the video via the link in his bio and keep an eye out for Global Bass, also directed by Mr Kets, and produced by yours truly…

As a mashup between Gqom styles of South Africa and the futuristic Dancehall of Jamaica, the Bumaye remix video takes place between the Rastafarian Dancehalls of Cape Town South Africa and the taxi ranks and salons of Bellville and Woodstock where the Pan-African nature of South Africa and the Gqom sounds are present. Capturing the vibrant and diverse culture of these spaces the crew decided to take dancers from different styles and subcultures for the video in this way showing the evolution of the style and remix culture in Gqom and Dancehall in Cape Town.
