Girare a piedi by ZO:NA

DJ and production duo ZO:NA is debuting their first EP on Rollover Milano. It features two moody and atmospheric fusions of techno, wave, and dark chug that are unlike anything you will have heard.

Girare a piedi by ZO:NA Art by Rollover Milano Records

Pierantonio Gualtieri (iltoro) and Guglielmo Prati (dove quiete) formed ZO:NA in Milan and mix different cultures and backgrounds into transgressive sounds focused on the dance floor. Both are creative free spirits who head out on a shared path with a simple goal: to throw out discomfort and turn it into dance music. They make slow techno with meaningful dialogues of voices full of honesty and obscurity. Their sound is equally apocalyptic and ecstatic as proven across these two powerful cuts.

This Italian pair kick off with "Girare a piedi con il vento" which is described by the pair as "a community song to liberate the ego the frustration and dance to the rhythm of techno." It is a gritty post-apocalyptic club sound. The drums are heavy, with blasts of filthy bass, jumbled DIY percussive sounds, and an intimidating male vocal, courtesy of the artist sodapop. The scuzzy pads and dark wave synths add to the intensity of this soot-black backroom chugger.

"Io non Ballo sulla Techno" was recorded in a live performance, at night, in a forest and is "a cathartic moment that represents the power of music and improvisation." It is another mid-tempo chugger with angelic vocals from Beiza offering a counterpoint to sodapop's tribal male voice and the weighty kicks and bass. It's bleakly theatrical with intoxicating strings drawing you in deep to this shadowy sound. Instrumental versions are also included and become even more moody and claustrophobic and scuzzy club cuts of the sort an ALFOS crowd would love.
