Ok, We'll Throw You a Lovers' Mix: Nguzunguzu's "Moments in Love"

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2010 at 1:21 PM


Love it or hate it, as Valentine's Day approaches, impending images of coupledom threaten to envelope us all. With a gushy holiday weekend around the corner, it's time to gear your thoughts toward your significant other, or at least toward someone whom you'd like to be significant to. To help get you in the mood, global-bass obsessives Nguzunguzu offer lovers and haters alike a free booty-shakin' and baby-makin' mix for V-Day escapades.

Entitled "Moments in Love," the new comp from the LA-based duo brings together the best party mix elements: old-school R&B, modern radio rap, 90's dance music, international rhythms, and more sex jams than you can shake a glowstick at.

The whole affair starts out slowly with melodic synths--as if it needed to seduce you into its warm embrace--before the beat bubbles to the top and Diamond K's "Go Down Baby" ushers in the bump 'n' grind. Featured throughout "Moments in Love" are numerous renditions of Art of Noise's song by the same name, including a live beat box version by Rahzel and a performance of the number by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Nguzunguzu also offer remixes of the classics-- Ginuwine's "Pony" and "Doing It" by LL Cool J.

Nguzunguzu's mixtape rides the arc between epic blowout and smooth operator with ease, providing the soundtrack for whatever speed love comes at you this weekend.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
