Since 2013 Lulamile Selela aka Scriby Lula aka DJ Scriby has been working behind the scenes with the gqom originators to help promote their sound and help manage people like DJ Lag. 2017 marks the year of a new dawn for him as he signs to Trax Couture with pending releases which will see him explore the world to celebrate and spread the sound of gqom, a hypnotic version of broken beat house centred around large captivating drums
Lula’s radiant and effervescent personality is clearly present in his music, which is just as infectious as his DJ style and his plans for you to share his musical expression in the very near future.
Gqom is only the first chapter for this young, bright star.
DJ Scriby is stepping out into the forefront on this latest instalment of the Trax Couture World Series. Standing up for Clermont, a township of Durban, SA this bold and fresh take on the city’s own gqom sound is a winning debut release.
Across the whole EP DJ Scriby carefully carves out the shades and different characters of the gqom sound.

He even jumps on the mic for a cameo…
…YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS!…
