New Gqom Oh! artist Dominowe releases EP
Gqom Oh! has released the first EP by their new signee, Dominowe.
Dominowe is a nineteen year old producer from the Newlands east township of Durban. The title of the EP is “SiyaThakatha” and the release embodies his unique style and presents itself as tell-tale of his own interesting journey.
Dominowe started out making Gqom just for himself and his friends. His passion for making music is organic and motivated purely by the joy of making music.
The EP will be out on vinyl on the 27th of January 2017. “SiyaThakatha” is a musical display of Dominowe’s one of a kind style in the context of the Durban electronic music scene especially when paced beside Gqom and Sghubu.
When listening to it you are able to get a real sense of the complexity of the varying styles that he enjoys producing.
When translated, “SiyaThakatha” means black magic or we witching. This idea of magic and wonder is at the core of this release.
Tuning into the rhythms of these tracks opens you up to a world you may have not yet tapped into. Imagine finding yourself immersed in this invisible energy known as Gqom.
Gqom does this, with it you can get into the mind of this young township dude. You will experience a combination of the ideal, the intangible, the unattainable and the other-worldly.
This original South African genre is dance floor focused and offers you a good time while getting into the deepest rhythm of your soul.
