In what can best be described as a fluid reimagining, ZULUZULUU has compiled a list of cherished classics and launched them through a sonic wormhole to pay tribute to the various musical influences that has paved the way for the synthesized WZRDs. Mixed and mastered by Big Quarters‘ own Medium Zach, The Cover Up allows the acclaimed afrofuturists to meld together the distinct soul and funk of the 1970s with the golden era of Hip Hop to continue on with their ethereal evolution of sound. Acting as a befitting end to a profound month of highlighting the individual talents of Proper-T, MMYYKK & Greg Grease, The Cover Up proves to be a vibrant regrouping back into their collective consciousness as they prepare to jubilate their final AstralBeat Theories residency show this Wednesday night.
Along with The Cover Up, fans can also rejoice at their chance to own their illustrious debut, What’s the Price? on vinyl as it’s slated to be released to select record stores as part of Black Friday. To celebrate, the 2016 Pick To Click six piece also dropped the new visuals to their funktastic title track. Directed by Adam Dunn, the video holds true to the song by capturing the exhaustive psychological effects after a brash brush with the law, all while questioning what’s the worth of overly oppressive police state that largely targets the same communities of color they are sworn to protect.
Be sure to keep up with all the happenings of ZULUZULUU on their website, Facebook and Twitter pages. And be sure to grab your ticket to Wednesday’s AstralBeat Theory residency show as well as their New Year’s Eve Party with Metasota, Destiny Roberts & Sophia Eris at First Avenue 7th St Entry.
