BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix has made some of “the world’s biggest DJs on the world’s biggest decks,” household names, and is hosted by prolific DJ, producer and tastemaker Pete Tong. This past Saturday, BBC Essential Mix rolled out the red carpet for Gqom royalty, DJ Lag, in a momentous turn for his career. He is one of only two other African acts to ever appear on the show, including the legendary Black Coffee and Egyptian future-sound connoisseurs Aly & Fila, laying down his best for 2 hours of Gqom goodness.
It's amazing to see DJ Lag getting the attention he deserves on a massive global and iconic platform.
