Durban’s DJ Lag is a pioneer of the world-conquering South African dance music genre, Gqom, and his story is told internationally as the September cover star of world-renowned DJ Mag.
Having toured the world and worked with superstars, but also fought battles – against copycats, at home and abroad, and a changing dance music scene, DJ Lag announces his debut album “Meeting With The King” and talks about how these battles and South Africa have made him and how he’s looking to the future by blending Gqom and Amapiano.
“I always used to think that I was loved more internationally than here. But after the will.i.am thing, I saw that South Africans really love me. Maybe it’s just that they’ve never shown it before,” reveals DJ Lag.
