NO ZU “BODY2BODY2BODY” (Chapter Music)


Australian mutant punk funk outfit, NO ZU, have returned with a burner of a remix for Body2Body2Body from their 2016 album Afterlife.

The landmark Manchester band A Certain Ratio, who are about to have their entire back catalogue reissued by Mute Records, ventured into the studio for the first time in eight years to record a wholly reconfigured version of NO ZU track Body2Body by incorporating elements of their own Do The Du to create the Do The Du ZU Mix. The track stands firm in the tradition of new-wave, post-punk and disco not disco collectively merging to form this coveted bastard mutation.

Jonny Sender from New York ’80s legends Konk did his own club-centric take on key Afterlife single Spirit Beat. NO ZU themselves have remixed both Body2Body and Spirit Beat to complete the four track EP. The vinyl edition will be a one-off pressing of 500 12”s.

The “Body2Body2Body” EP is out now in digital and vinyl formats on Chapter Records
