This release comes from Durban gqom originator DJ Lag and London based Hyperdub mainstay Okzharp, of Okzharp and Manthe Ribane. Having initially linked up online back in 2012, DJ Lag and Okzharp connected in different places while touring, putting the wheels in motion for the Steam Rooms collaboration EP.

The EP’s title originates from the Durban nickname for local clubs, “they used to refer to clubs as steam rooms, a lot of the early gqom-style music was played in these places, there were quite a few tracks named after them. The name for the EP is a tribute to that.” The EP features 4 club heavy tracks made in London in 2018 when Lag was passing through on European tours.

Steam Rooms is a collection of 4 dancefloor heaters that are set to make the club sweat, the amalgamation of a London / Durban link up reflecting both producers environments and sound pallets for icey cold gqom tracks with funky house shadings.
