DJ Lag and Que DJ have joined forces for the first time on their new single ‘Where’s Your Father?’, which is out today.

The gqom artists have infused some high-pitched screams and quick flutters of a high-hats to the bass-heavy track.

Released via Que DJ’s label Amagogogo Sounds, our previous cover star DJ Lag came up with the concept of the track while DJing.

He retells the moment: “Que and my best friend Skoro were there and Que just took the mic and started saying, ‘Where’s your father, where’s your mother?’ There had been a video of Skoro saying those lines and it was trending on social media. Que started saying it in the club and in the morning we headed straight to the studio to record the song.”

On top of this, the track pays homage to their heritage, which Que DJ explains: “We are considered as the Gqom originators and so this collaboration is only befitting personally. I’ve always wanted to work with DJ Lag and now we’ve finally found the time to make it happen.”

DJ Lag has previously worked with Beyoncé and Tierra Whack on ‘My Power’, and this year he released his debut album ‘Meeting With The King’.
