Minneapolis-based supergroup ZULUZULUU are on a roll. Following the summer release of their debut EP, this fall they've taken another step with each member releasing solo EPs in step with their month-long residency at Icehouse. Today they release a new group mixtape, The Cover Up, as well as a video to accompany their previous album's title track, "What's The Price."
The Cover Up is a collection of covers of soul, funk, jazz and R&B artists from the 1970s and 80s, as well as DJ Quik and De La Soul, reinterpreted with a double dose of ZULUZULUU's Afrofuturistic electro-funk flavor. The 10-track mixtape also includes an irresistible remix of their own song, "On Our Way."
Check out ZULUZULUU's homage-paying mixtape and the new video below.
