NO ZU “HI GLOSS” EP
NO ZU extend their very own world of percussive groove and "Heat Beat" into deeper territories than ever before on their Hi Gloss EP.
Leading with the second single from their forthcoming LP (Afterlife due in Feb 2016 via Chapter Music), Hi Gloss sets the tone for the record - one of wild-abandon boogie and no-wave styled house that is at once uniquely NO ZU. Triple X funk and NSFW moods continue to flow and mutate throughout the EP with hedonistic freedom.
Hi Hypnomania sees the group nodding to influences like Konk and Pigbag, but then swiftly takes them down into a smoked-out, dungeon basement at an un-godly hour to forget about time and space.
Side B begins with a jam (Do Deep Dee) recorded in NYC with Sal Principato (Liquid Liquid) during a session that went from 1am to 6am. The result is as gloriously zonked and dubby as you might expect - a true continuity in free-groove and abstract percussive joy. Finally, the last track sees infamous LA boogie-man, Moon B (PPU, 1080p) take NO ZU's Ui Yia Uia into a darker dub and bouncy minimalist realm.
It's so sweet and fresh that it acts as the perfect after-dinner mint for the Hi Gloss EP. Let the "Heat Beat" possess you.
