Emo Kid Shares a Track From New ‘Gqomtera’ EP
The eight-track EP drops via Gqom Oh! at the end of the month.
The title, Gqomtera, refers to a slang term Emo Kid and his peers use for the music, but the tracks on the record actually explore the rhythms of sgubhu, another strain of South African dance music that shares many stylistic cues with gqom—although, sgubhu is always written with a 4×4 beat. Whatever the term or genre, the music on Gqomtera is stylish, groovy, and immaculately produced, insatiable tracks that reflect the raw, gritty nature of Durban and an exciting artist now on the map.
