2019 has indeed begun on a high note for undisputed gqom king DJ Lag who’s doing his own BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. The gqom pioneer is also set to tour in the next few months hitting events around the world including Sonar Istanbul and an all-nighter at Berlin’s legendary club, Berghain. The last single off DJ Lag’s exemplary Stampit EP entitled ‘Switz’ embraces the way that music and movement come together to stir both body and spirit, on an international scale.

Shot and directed in New York by Bon Duke, Mette Towley’s interpretation of “Switz” is her response to the feeling that dance, and its ability to act as a mode of communication, needed a serious revisit, zeroing in on the essence of the moving individual in question. Mette is the performance artist known for her dynamic solo in N.E.R.D and Rihanna’s “Lemon” video, and has since become the face of freedom in a genre that embraces just that. With just the right music, that freedom can be shared in projects such as this one, where she found DJ Lag’s unique Gqom sound effervescent and liberating enough to accompany her and her collaborators’ steps. Choreographed in collaboration with the dancers, this piece truly embodies the spirit behind the ritual of movement and collective power.
