    GQOM OH! X CRUDO VOLTA MIXTAPE BUNDLE

    This is a pre-order for the limited edition Gqom Oh! x Crudo Volta mixtape bundle. Each of the 50 numbered bundles will include a double sided 90 minute tape with one side containing 7 tracks from the documentary and the other side an exclusive 45 minute mix from Nan Kolè. The tape will also include a special Bandcamp card which will allow you to download all 14 tracks digitally.

    Also included in the bundle there will be a limited edition white ‘woza’ t-shirt which is screen printed on heavy cotton with a front & back design. The shirt will be accompanied with a 24 page mini tabloid which will include some of the best pictures taken from the trip by official photographer Tommaso Cassinis.

    Note: This bundle is limited to only 50 copies and each box will be numbered by hand.

    Press Release:

    The word Crudo [ˈkruːdo] in Italian translates as “raw” and this is the overarching concept around the latest Gqom Oh! Release.

    It is set to be in collaboration with Crudo Volta - a young Rome-based collective who focused on visual curation and dj culture. The mixtape is the soundtrack of the Woza Taxi documentary. Making the documentary in April 2016 - whilst visiting his artists and their families in Durban - label boss Nan Kolè painstakingly narrowed down this selection of tracks for the release. The trip lent a tremendous amount of insight to Nan Kolè, granting him both a detailed and broad view of the Gqom scene and what Gqom means to the youth of the township (for they consist the core music makers and listeners of Gqom).

    Their unique sound, which took Europe by storm at the start of 2016, is a way for the youth in the township to express themselves - something that music does the world over - but moreover enables them to express their pride and experiences in their Zulu culture and history. Mawbestana from Forgotten Souls gave some insight into how the music was made. He said in the documentary “…Everyone thinks we have a mega studio with huge speakers but we are just ‘Hlanganisa’..” Hlanganisa is a zulu word literally translated as 'putting together'; This refers to creating something out of the few elements available to you “…Just like when you scrap the bottom of a pan to get some food out of it..” cited Mawbestana.

“Gqom special stash out of the locations”

The word Crudo [ˈkruːdo] in Italian translates as “raw” and this is the overarching concept around the latest Gqom Oh! Release.

The release features 14 tracks ( + 2 bonus tracks exclusively on band camp ) showcasing different and new music from Durban - spanning Core Tribe through Sgubhu to Gqom.
