DJ Lag’s ‘Ice Drop’ Video Delivers Durban to the World

Premiering on FactMag last week, Durban-hailing DJ Lag dropped his latest offering to the global stage – a Chris Kets and Jabulile Nadia Newman-directed 6-and-a-half-minute short that reveals gqom in all its grassroots glory.

Introducing: itsbkkr

There’s just something about bare skin. Bekker’s decided to go big and share his pieces with the world via his first ever exhibition next month.
