From Avoca Hills to the world – Mixed by Citizen Boy

Gqom

At just 21, Durban’s Citizen Boy should be too young to be considered a veteran, yet having made music since age 13, his position in the world of gqom is hard to overstate.

He began as a founding member of Mafia Boyz in Avoca Hills and this history, along with the evolution of the once hyper-local sound, is celebrated with an upcoming mixtape that references their Durban neighbourhood, due for release via Gqom Oh! on 21 February. The tape perfectly encapsulates gqom’s frenetic power, and is exclusively available online via crackaud.io.
