certainly subverts received ideas of what African music should be....

if it's like any kind of house before it's like the most mechanistic posthuman clanking-grinding sort of tribal house tunes Danny Tenaglia might have played in the mid-90s around about 3-AM

Adam Harper piece on the sound, in which he says: "Gqom tracks are very long and harmonically static, often built on single-note or octave string drones, and the rhythmic interest comes in the form of off-beats that are so commanding they often trick your ear into thinking they're on-beats, an effect that imparts a feeling of weightlessness"
