NO ZU are a Heat Beat band from Melbourne, Australia. They make a particularly antipodean type of percussive, boogie-influenced, mutant-dance music.
Founded in 2007 by Nicolaas Oogjes as a recording outlet for his “weird, no-wave funk” music, NO ZU has continued to evolve as both an electronic (with live percussion) solo/collaborative project, but also as a big (6/7/8 piece), live band.
Otherworldly vocals, punctuating horn parts, housey synths, deep groove basslines and Latin percussion are the ingredients that make up their art-damaged sound.
With their second album, Afterlife, due for release in early 2016, there is sure to be a long sleuth of more NO ZU to come.
