"Getting deeper than anyone into the mechanics and mindset of South Africa’s viral township techno sound, 27 year old Menzi Shabane makes seismic moves on the ‘Impazamo’ EP with six trax of gobsmacking Gqom pressure advanced by shocking levels of sound design detail and searing synth dynamics" - Boomkat
