Though only three releases deep, the Hypermedium label have already acquired an impressive roster in EVOL, Patino and No God Ritual. To that crew of dancefloor futurists we can now add Durban’s Gqom pioneers Audioboyz. The group look to capitalise on Gqom’s rapidly globalising popularity with these four tracks of no-messing dancefloor smashes. The drum-’n’-drone formula that is a staple of the genre is adhered to uniformly. Only on ‘Drifting Away’ do the pair dare add extra notes to the undulating bass hum, though opener ‘Spotlight’ does contain a nice boinging octave loop. Rather than focussing on melody, the trick of this EP is to spin propulsive grooves from insistent, tense drum tracking.
