Zatua ‘Nun Vuelvas Más’

One of the great things about this “new” way of record shopping is it’s possible to actually live with music for a while before you take the plunge at your local vinyl emporium or Discogs. You can Spotify or Bandcamp the shit out of it before saying “yes, this record will actually leave it’s sleeve more than once and won’t be yet another circular monument to the fact my kids will never go to a decent school”.

This is a tune I’ve been hammering on Apple Music for months before buying the vinyl and I still bite my lower lip and let out a little ‘uh yeah’ every time it comes on. It’s the third track on the debut album Sin Existencia by Zatua, a promising outfit from Indonesia. It’s absolutely dripping in funk and is the kind of record you play to black music purists who think that anything under the balearic or world music moniker is just a load of Birkenstock (not that there’s anything wrong with Birkenstocks) tie dyed Hackney bollocks. It really is rather good.
