Partnering for the first time, Gqom King DJ Lag and Stream Queen Shekhinah combine their creative powers to release a stellar single titled ‘Anywhere We Go,’ due on all DSPs on May 24th. Both artists hail from the coastal city, and have left listeners awestruck both at home and abroad. Dominating dancefloors across the world with his unique approach to Gqom, DJ Lag has pioneered this young genre from his hometown of Clermont, KwaZulu-Natal, and garnered the attention of enthusiasts from Johannesburg to Asia and greater Europe, embarking on tours circling the globe twice over. The single sees DJ Lag temper his signature sound to marry perfectly with the wistful vocals written and performed by multi award-winning vocalist, Shekhinah, who skyrocketed to success and became Spotify South Africa’s highest streaming artist in the past year, with an armful of SAMAs to boot.
The ‘Anywhere We Go’ single is brought to life by a dynamic music video directed by one of South Africa’s most acclaimed music video creators, Kyle Lewis – who over the years has lent his keen eye to the likes of Spoek Mathambo, Cassper Nyovest and Nasty C. The music video is an ode to the creativity of the human form in motion, celebrating what Shekhinah and DJ Lag do best – moving bodies wherever they may be, from the club to city street corners… both near and far, present and future.
