Johannesburg-based rapper Okmalumkoolkat shares a gqom remix of "IJusi" by Jumping Back Slash, from the upcoming 're:code H0' EP.
Okmalumkoolkat's Holy Oxygen I from last fall condensed the Durban-born, Johannesburg based rapper's future-leaning delivery and sonic experimentations into four striking tracks. For the upcoming re:code H0 EP, the South African artist has recruited a noteworthy cast of producers, including Petite Noir, Sibot, Wandl and salute, to rework the EP's originals. Cape Town-based producer Jumping Back Slash's "iJusi (Gqom Dub)," premiering here today, strips down the original and places Okamlumkoolkat's non-linear rhymes over broken and syncopated kick drums in the Durban-bred electronic style of gqom. For more, revisit the Holy Oxygen I singles "Fancy Footwork,""Holy Oxygen," and "Allblackblackkat."
