The global bass movement is here; you can’t escape it. It’s the dark growl beneath Arca’s Venezuelan trap, the Andean huayño rhythms and postcolonial critiques on Elysia Crampton’s American Drift, the fair-trade parodies and free-jazz pastiche of ADR’s Chunky Monkey — heck, it’s even arguably the Caribbean riddim on D.R.A.M.’s Billboard-hit “Cha Cha.” Like South African kwaito and Caribbean dancehall before it, club culture is changing, as rhythms of the Global South again find their way into our dance consciousness, now often paired with sharp postcolonial commentary and a dizzying pastiche of popular forms.  Lafawndah delivers blisteringly hi-fi, hypercompressed dance tracks flooring clubs the world over.
