Pride 2021 (DJ Mix)

Johannesburg DJ Lelowhatsgood crosses multiple genres, moods, and continents in his Pride mix: Deep house from Germany’s FJAAK and Korea’s Peggy Gou rubs up against Jersey club from UNIIQU3, hard drum from London’s LSDXOXO, and baile funk from São Paulo’s MC Bin Laden. “Often, we get put into boxes, and this is the one chance to reclaim my musical influences and love for different genres that are influenced by the queer community,” Lelo tells Apple Music. The backbone of his set is made up of songs by South African artists like Black Major, DJ Lag, Faka, and Griffit Vigo. “Gqom is spiritual to me,” he explains. “It reminds me of growing up in Durban when the sound was so raw and untamed. You’d just let it take control of you. It still does that, and that’s why it’ll remind me of home even on an international scale. Everyone wants a taste of that feeling.”
