Nguzunguzu's (pronounced en-goo-zoo-en-goo-zoo) otherworldly productions weave energetic polyrhythms, eerie melodies, and dramatic soundscapes to create a new emotive electronic club realm that is sad, sexy, and scary. Raised on 90s R&B/hip-hop radio and underground club music, the Los Angeles based duo (Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda) digs deep to complement the explicitly experimental modern sounds of international club music with some of the freshest urban pop happening now.
Nguzunguzu, who take their name from a traditional Solomon Island figurehead used to protect against supernatural forces during canoe trips, offer a unique blend of R&B, rap, club, house, kuduro, and grime. To date, they have released six EPs on a who's who of forward-thinking labels, all to critical acclaim and DJ support from the likes of Kingdom and Total Freedom. Their "Perfect Lullaby" mix series, a lush exploration of zouk beats and pop vocals, was released by DIS Magazine and has garnered over 150,000 plays on SoundCloud so far. Recently, the duo has forayed into producing for rappers and singers like Le1f and Kelela, with more collaborations to come.
A sleekly made thriller with a sparky sense of humour, this is also a rare action movie that has something important to say.
