They’ve been dropping some of the most celebrated Gqom hits in quick succession for a minute now, so the commercial success of Destruction Boyz’s album, Gqom Is The Future, is not much of a surprise.
The album features a few bangers to which many morals have been lost in the last few months, so many that it was a no-brainer for the famed Gqom champions to put out a cohesive album for every single party from now until further notice.
ALBUM REVIEW: SHEKHINAH’s ROSEGOLD ALBUM
The Durban duo – who’ve produced hits such as Uzophuza Amanzi, Shut Up And Groove and Babes Wodumo’s Wololo – released a full body of work consisting of some of their best works and a whole lot of new banging stuff that many have declared the ultimate sound for the looming festive.
Gqom Is The Future debuted atop the iTunes chart upon release, and has continued to be a trending conversation on social media.
Those who are familiar with the popular Durban sound will know that there is a whole sub-culture around it. And while the occasional lyrics tend to use local Durban slang and references that may not make much sense to everyone, the language of the broken, rhythmic kicks seem to have really taken over in 2017.
While Wololo is known as the track that introduced Gqom to the mainstream market, Gqom Is The Future is the album that seals its prominence.
