The RAW Sessions project is a touring series of events and short films, which unite the frontier of musical and directorial talents across the world. For Johannesburg’s edition film, G-Star took a journey into the tropical underground of the Gqom scene in Durban, South Africa as viewed through the lens of local filmmaker Chris Kets.

The documentary style work stars DJ Lag as he tells the story of this new genre and its subculture. Also making an appearance is Durban native and godfather of the Gqom sound Okmalumkoolkat.
