Nguzunguzu's (prounounced en-goo-zoo-en-goo-zoo) bubbling, otherworldly productions stitch percussively forward experimental sounds into a club-friendly framework. Alongside kindred spirits in the Fade To Mind crew (Kingdom, Total Freedom) Nguzunguzu seamlessly cross genres, tempos, and atmospheres to create a new emotive electronic club realm that immerses body and mind. It's something that has to be experienced to truly understand. Describing their own sound as "sad, sexy, scary", making you move isn't their only mission...they want to make you feel, maybe cry, and then dance the pain away.
Raised on 90s R&B/Hip-Hop radio and underground club music, the Los Angeles based duo (Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda) revere contemporary, radio-friendly producers like The Dream or Bangladesh to be cutting edge as many of the current fringe electronic movements and trends. While they reference the explicitly experimental modern sounds of Footwork and House-inflected UK Bass, Nguzunguzu dig deep to compliment those sounds finding some of the freshest urban pop happening now domestically and globally, both obscure and mainstream.
WIth just a few EP and mixtapes circulating the internet Nguzunguzu have gained a fervent following among fans and the press. Pitchfork Media called their recent Perfect Lullaby Mix "the most unique and evocative DJ mix of the year", while publications like The FADER, XLR8R, Stereogum, LA Times, and the NY Times have are singing their praises looking towards Nguzunguzu to lead us into the future.
