HEADLINE: NO ZU
NO ZU are an 8-piece, body-music extravaganza dug up from deep within the Melbourne’s underground Hades. Otherworldly group vocals, wild horns, housey synths, deep groove basslines and Latin percussion are the ingredients that make up their acclaimed “Heat Beat” sound. Each NO ZU show threatens to manifest into an unbridled, sweat-fest of a mutant dance party where distinctions between performer and audience disappear and the Heat Beat possesses all.
DJ: SIMON & LAUREN
Known for their genre-spanning selections, and ability to play exactly the right track at the right time, Simon and Lauren are regular performers at music festivals, arts events, clubs and on Breaking and Entering, the New Releases Drive show on Australia’s largest community radio station, 3RRR FM.
