NGUZUNGUZU have never failed to deliver productions that massively shift the way we conceive of dance music, so it makes sense that their release on Prince William and Kingdom’s collaborative record label Fade To Mind.
Billed as “a record label and a movement, a series of club nights and cooperative projects in music, visual art, video, and apparel”, Fade To Mind is off to a stellar start with the NGUZUNGUZU created “Timesup” EP – full of intricately crafted pieces of dance music.
“Water Bass Power” sounds like someone sharpening daggers on a waterfall – unstoppably fluid, movement based dance music with a serious kick to it, and Kingdom’s laid back but anxiety laden R&B recut of the shuffling, “Timesup”, a tune about having to call people back, turned off phones, and an underlying unsettled vibe about one’s relationship. With production like this, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Fade To Mind gang were responsible for 98% of computer hacking that’s going on these days – futuristic, global club virus music going full speed ahead.
