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

Oh boy, we’re hella proud of this one. 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. Shot in gqom hotbed Kwa-Dabeka just before Lag set off for his international tour, Kets set out to capture the essence of gqom in its rawest form, something that’s not too hard to achieve with a party like this one:

Director & Editor: Chris Kets
Producer: Andrew Aitchison (Black Major)
Cinematography: Chris Kets & Jabulile Nadia Newman
3D Animation: Stuart Kets
2D Animation: Dada Khanyisa
Aerial Cinematography: Airbourne Media
Final Mix: Raiven Haansman (Popsicle Studios)
Maskandi artist: Bhekisenzo Cele (Vukazithathe)
Dancers: S’buh and Samkelo (Mexican Boys)
