UK-based award-winning DJ and producer DJ Cable has collaborated with one of South Africa’s hottest artistes Robin Thirdfloor to release a brand new track called Ungasabi.
This unique track is an exciting blend of two top genres – Gqom and UK funky. It is a first and must-have for every gqom, hip hop or EDM fan.
How the two artistes met
DJ Cable, whose real name is Chris Painter, was introduced to Robin Thirdfloor by a mutual friend. He already had a liking for gqom music.
Cable therefore wanted to create a unique sound that isn’t too different from what both South African and UK audiences are used to and one that will be enjoyed across continents.
“I got introduced to Robin’s music via a mutual friend and just had to reach out to him,” the talented DJ and producer explained.
“I’m a massive fan of gqom, so I sent over my UK take on the genre whilst bringing my love of UK Funky & Grime into the production process. He got the vibe and the result is this!”

A boost of courage in the right direction, the song speaks about not being fearful and facing every one of life’s hiccups with confidence – a power statement and affirmation in one song.
“The song is about not being fearful. I touch on various references which emphasise that I’m not scared of any rapper in the game and I am not scared of any unfavourable situation I come across,” Robin explains.
“The song is a power statement. On the chorus I rap, ‘Abasiyeke senze lento ngenkani ungasabi [Let them allow us do this by force, don’t fear].’
“I continue to rap, ‘ithina abenzi bezinto,’ which means, ‘We are the ones who make big moves.’”
Robin is also know for hits such as Gibela and eThekwini.
