Video: LV and Okmalumkoolkat "Boomslang"
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Hyperdub goes kwaito? Believe it or not, the stalwart UK bass/dubstep imprint is taking cues from South Africa on this new single. LV puts a new spin on the stuttering African sound, while MC Okmalumkoolkat—his friends just call him Kool Kat—says "Boomslang" like 800 times and generally looks like the coolest dude ever. How can you say no to Dwayne Wayne glasses and a hi-top fade? The "Boomslang/Zharp" single drops on October 11.
