    label: Chapter Music

    Remixes by 80s punk-funk icons A Certain Ratio and Jonny Sender (Konk). Unstoppable heat-beat pioneers NO ZU unleash a remix 12” of tracks from 2016 album Afterlife, reworked by 80s punk-funk icons A Certain Ratio and Jonny Sender of Konk, as well as the band themselves. The Body2Body2Body EP sees NO ZU’s dark, mutant punk-funk reworked by two of the masters of the genre. Manchester heroes 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, incorporating elements of their own Do The Du to create the Do The Du ZU Mix. 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. In 2015 NO ZU had the lead track on Cut Copy’s compilation of Australian dance music, Oceans Apart. In 2016 second album Afterlife was released to rave reviews from Pitchfork, The Vinyl Factory, Test Pressing and elsewhere. They picked up KEXP song of the day, KCRW premiered one of their videos, and in Australia the band hosted a month of Triple J show Mix Up. The band toured Europe twice, playing Transmusicales Festival in Rennes to a huge crowd, televised live on FranceTV. In Australia the band ruled at Golden Plains and WOMAD, and have burned up the summer at Lost Paradise, Fremantle Festival, National Gallery of Victoria and elsewhere. They also found time to record a cameo on Melbourne rising star Tornado Wallace’s debut album Lonely Planet on Running Back Records. Tracklist 1. Body2Body (Tooth4Tooth Mix) 2.
