DJ LAG

DJ LAG

2022-05-1836:36

DJ Lag is frequently described as a gqom pioneer – helping shape and usher the drum-heavy sound to the forefront of South Africa's dance music scene.    Always looking to break new ground, his latest album employs a broader palette fusing amapiano, Afro-house, and Afro-tech – and slowing down a few tracks that he’s seeing as a bit of shift in the genre, calling it gqom 2.0.   From hearing his music in a taxi for the first time, to that first trip up to Johannesburg, to touring the world, DJ Lag seems to have taken it all in his stride, one giant leap at a time.    Outro Song: DJ LAG feat Babes Wadumo and Mampintsha - Apple Music   Set List:   Let’s Do This - Apple Music  3 Step Culo - Apple Music Ice Drop - Apple Music Portland - Apple Music Drumming - DJ Lag and Moses Boyd - Apple music Something Different - Apple Music Remember to Check out Apple Podcasts for their featured pods for Africa Month 2022!   For our growing back catalog of awesome, head on over to www.texxtalks.com or follow us on Facebook Instagram Twitter for updates, things you need to hear.

For our 100th episode and the start of Africa Month we chat to a South African rap powerhouse whose lyrical flexing is world class, a lady who has unapologetically blazed her own trail, preaching empowerment and taking names on whichever stage she steps.    From the moment the country heard her hot, on point rhymes it was very clear that a new kind of hip hop star was born and her career has been equally as interesting to follow as it unfolds.     From her humble hard working roots through to finding her own form of spiritual enlightenment that very often sought to buck the status quo, Gigi Lamayne is blazing a trail that you best don fire protection to keep up with.    Outro Song: Mashonisa feat.

Committed to a telling of a lived experience of struggle in the past, present and future, YoungstaCPT exists only to be a custodian of a proud tradition and add to the mythos of the legends that have come before him.    Outro: Hometown Advantage feat.

ByLwansta was first featured on Texx and the City back in 2016 with his debut EP “Your Absolutely Right”. Over the course of the last 6 years he’s become known for his biting lyricism and his charismatic flow and his attention to every single detail of the roll out of his last few releases is on a whole other level, worthy of massive praise.   Relating to creative output primarily through colour palates and inanimate objects, they serve to set the scene for a meticulous voyage of self discovery that has culminated in SPIGØNGET (Chapter 3), a study in the seemingly mundane, brought forward in a rich audio joint. t   Outro: WHITEBOARD - SoundCloud   Set List:   ASMR - SoundCloud Stay Naked - SoundCloud Funny How - SoundCloud ESTBLSHD - SoundCloud Okay Fine - SoundCloud Lindiwe - YouTube   For our growing back catalog of awesome, head on over to www.texxtalks.com or follow us on Facebook Instagram Twitter for updates, things you need to hear.

This time around we have the frontman of an indie rock band that has a knack for churning out those singalong earworms.    With one of the most exciting and energetic shows across the board, they were a staple on every festival stage and Texx owns more of their merch than any other South African band, so their much-anticipated comeback is making her super excited to break out her t-shirts again.   From ill-advised band names to pop culture references that fuel the songs that the band has no choice to play on any set, Shortstraw is back and they don’t know what they are doing for their new album release.    Outro:   Okinawa - Apple Music    Set List:   Edible - Apple Music Uh Oh - Apple Music Keanu Reeves - Apple Music Couch Potato - Apple Music Say Anything - Apple Music My Favourite Place - Apple Music    Check out Gaddles Candy Company HERE!   For our growing back catalog of awesome, head on over to www.texxtalks.com or follow us on Facebook Instagram Twitter for updates, things you need to hear.
