Stiff Pap is the name that’s been rolling off tongues since last year October, when the duo released their debut track “Dlala”. The Cape Town-based act of electronic producer Jakinda and rapper AyemaProbllem, combine elements of gqom, kwaito, house and electronic music with their hair-raising creations.

As part of Kwaai-Fi, GinaJeanz remixed Stiff Pap’s intense and cheeky track “Amagroovist” that was released in February. The original is described as future gqom on Stiff Pap’s  SoundCloud page. It breaks ground and creates it at the same time.

GinaJeanz takes the beautiful chaos of “Amagroovist”, and creates a track that surpasses genre and has an enthralling flow to it. Her approach is subtler compared to the original, however not making it any less masterful. The GinaJeanz stamp is firmly placed on the original, as she morphs it into a volcanic concoction of trap, and rhythmic future beat elements. The melody and synths are both lush and refreshing, and brings across the right dosage of attitude and confidence. Like Stiff Pap, she’s a visionary and this remix proves why she’s the queen of future beats right now.
