DJ LAG & SINJIN HAWKE

RAPTOR

2021 was undoubtedly the year of South African music, due in part to DJ Lag's strong output throughout the year. Often credited as one of the pioneers of Gqom, Lag's highly anticipated debut studio album will be released soon. Alongside brand new solo work, "Meeting With the King" also sees him collaborate with a number of representatives from the gqom and amapiano scenes and beyond. The latest single "Raptor" is a club banger with another king, Sinjin Hawke of Fractal Fantasy-fame.

“Sinjin is technically so advanced and has a really good feel for gqom. I think we have achieved a great crossover between our two sounds and ended with a track that is also technically sophisticated…I am stoked with the way it turned out.”

The Raptor music video was directed by Johannesburg-based photographer and filmmaker Travys Owen and features performance artist, designer and musician Manthe Ribane, and a troupe of energetic young moshers. "Meeting with the King" releases on 18 February, 2022.
