GQOM: Durban → NYC

GQOM is a style of dance music from South Africa that is making waves in the United States and beyond. Watch RBMA’s H∆SHTAG$ video below to get a taste of what GQOM is all about.

The lo-fi beats and rugged dance moves of GQOM started evolving in Durham, South Africa from bedroom producers to crazy warehouse parties. GQOM kings DJ Lag, Rudeboyz and DJ Twitty brings the Durban sound to NYC dancefloors at Tender Trap in New York City on May 12, 2017.

Trade Show USA

Trade Show USA: a 12 hour techno, house and disco queer warehouse party. Need we say more? Featuring Honey Soundsystem, WRECKEDnyc, Hondo, Sotlight, NeedlExchange, Men’s Room Chicago, The Carry Nation and DJ Holographic.

Queer dance parties have a long standing history in New York City. RBMA is bringing together all the dance music kings and queens under one roof from 6am-6pm on May 13, 2017. Check it out at 592 Johnson Ave in Brooklyn.
