NO ZU - Afterlife
How different? I'm glad you asked, because it is time to find out for yourself. This Friday, February 5, Chapter Music will release Afterlife, containing eight tracks of NO ZU's polyrhythmic global music, emphasizing percussion and completely club-ready. And riding the percussion are distinctive male/female vocals, jazzy frills and funk horns. It most probably is like nothing you've heard before, but chances are it will end up on your permanent playlist.
Of course, we wouldn't suggest you buy without trying the goods, so we've included some clips below. And we strongly suggest the wonderfully bizarre video for standout song "Ui Yia Uia". You may decide to buy this album just to have that song and a couple of others available for your party mix. You won't be the only one.
NO ZU are Nicolaaas Oogjes, Andrew Noble, Adrian Vecino, Mitch McGregor, Daphne Camf, Kieran O'Shea, Cayn Borthwick, and Becky Sui Zhen. Additional credits go to Nao Anzai, Adrian Tregonning, Sal Principato, Maria Minerva, Margarita Strateas, and Luke Hodgson, presumably because you can never have too many people contributing to your heat beat. And given the results, who can argue?
