Hailing from Durban in South Africa, DJ Lag is a pioneer of the genre that his city is known for: Gqom. His bass-heavy beats have earned this prolific producer and DJ a big fan base in the club scene world wide. And his talent didn’t stay unnoticed outside of the electronic music world, either: in 2019 he collaborated with Beyonce for her album Lion King: The Gift. By now, DJ Lag's excellent EPs on Goon Club Allstars and Hyperdub have become DJ-essentials to many. You might have seen and heard his skills at Dekmantel 2022, and if not, be sure not to miss him during Lentekabinet 2024.
