"Totally blown away by the production on this new EP from Her Records co-head Sudanim. The whole thing is intensely tangible and layered with caverns of tactile percussion, creating a kind of UK bass gorge walk for the listener to meander through with trepidation. There’s so many influences combined here, from dancehall to grime to hip hop, but all the elements combine to make something that sounds original and fresh."

"It’s an aesthetic built on ever-building percussion that can tumble down in a violent crush at any moment. It’s nominally dance music, but offers an equally impressive post-industrial sentiment."
Gabe Meier - dotheastralplane.com
"Across four original productions, Sudanim crafts a selection of tracks that are structurally diverse yet sonically coherent, exploring a diverse set of influences while always making sure his production style remains front and centre."
Liminal Sounds - liminalsounds.com
"It's a highly exciting new take on club music, taking global influences and turning them into a strange new form in typical London fashion."

The Sound of Durban is a perfect introduction to a new genre that's caught the ear of many DJs & electronic music producers around the world. This style is heavy hitting but not necessarily as dark as people may seem to think - more-so intense and rhythmic. I can see this dominating late night dancefloors as well as after hours parties where you want to keep the heat going and growing. I'm eager to hear more from artists in this genre as it expands and gains more of the notoriety it deserves. Ate Bit Emilio
