Minneapolis has a long history of distinctive R&B styles and flavors. ZULUZULUU arrived in 2014 and began to expand on that with an eye on the future but with respect to the past: “I see it as the next chapter of the Minneapolis sound” says guitarist ΔRT PΔRTÉ. One of their first shows was playing a Clash tribute; months later landing on First Avenue’s Best New Bands 2014. After bursting onto the scene the band took a hiatus and gathered to build collectively and contribute to the new vanguard of black music. ZULUZULUU is made up of six musicians/producers: MMYYKK, Proper T, Greg Grease, DJ Just Nine, ΔRT PΔRTÉ & Trelly Mo; armed with various synths, drum machines, and instruments set out to bring a new, exploratory modern sound influenced by the greats of funk, soul, and jazz with electronic excursions, hard grooves, Afro-futurism and soulful melodies. ZULUZULUU explores the psyche and searching for Black Excellence: “ZULUZULUU is church,
it’s therapy, it’s family, it’s a space where we can express ourselves freely as black men with no limitations”, states multi-instrumentalist/vocalist MMYYKK. The band works in communal fashion and continually seeks a greater a truth. The band see the groups mission as part of a bigger movement “we see ZULUZULU as a vessel, a spiritual, sonic culmination of our experiences and influences from our ancestors”.
