Distruction Boyz – From The Streets To The World

The album is fourteen tracks in length and features an array of artists and took well over 7 months to come together. Distruction boyz took to social media to debunk the betting of Gqom against Amapiano.
“Mzansi we are very happy to announce that we’ve officially created a new world sound.
If you’re a music producer that produces Gqom music, a vocalist that loves dance music, a Gqom music hater, a proudly South African, a general music lover or an artist from abroad looking to work with authentic African sounds we have exciting news for you. We have created a brand new sound/subgenre called “EGM” which stands for Electronic Gqom Music.”
Said, Distruction Boyz in a Facebook post.
“While people are deciding if Gqom is dying or Amapiano are killing Gqom we’ve been self-investing and creating new sounds, things that don’t exist. Since when is music a competition? Create music to entertain people not to compete or take anybody down. Same goes for listeners, listen to what you like and stop thinking what YOU like is right and what others like is wrong. It’s about what you like or get along with – it’s not a competition.”
