Listen to Distruction Boyz’ New Album ‘It Was All A Dream’ Featuring DJ Tira, Mr Eazi, Dladla Mshunqisi & More

The gqom duo return with their sophomore album.

Durban gqom duo Distruction Boyz just released their sophomore album, a year after their platinum-selling debut Gqom Is The Future. It features the likes of DJ Tira, Mr Eazi, Dladla Mshunqisi and Beast, among a few others.


While their debut led with the massive hit single, "Omunye," It Was All A Dream is a stand-alone body of work that is yet to give fans a hit of choice to lose morals to this December.

Listening to the album, that shouldn't be a struggle. Songs like "Amaxoki," "Umuthi," "Shasha Kushasha" and "Izinja Zami" come with infectious catch phrases, which are the key ingredient for a gqom hit.

Most of the songs on It Was All A Dream are instrumental, so if you are into the knock of those 808 drums and eardrum slicing synths, you'll have the album on repeat.

Listen to It Was All A Dream below, and/or download it here.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
