Premiere: Grimey Cape Town Noise Rap In Dookoom's 'Kak Stirvy'

Watch a dark music video from grimey South African rap group Dookoom.


Dookoom is the grimey noise-rap incarnation of Cape Town rapper (and past Die Antwoord collaboratorIsaac Mutant alongside producer Dplanet. The pair present a dark and unapologetic sonic landscape in "Kak Stirvy," a track that sneaks in underneath the skin and bubbles up in an aggressive onslaught.

Watch it below and stream/buy Dookoom's 6-track album.
