Russian act Bad Zu fuse grime and tribal African music, to create a style totally unexpected from a band from the North European nation. Head over to their Soundcloud to hear tracks like ‘House of Zu’ and ‘Smile Against Bullet’ each of which exemplify their varying approaches to music. Vibey stuff, this threesome should get even the most timid of clubgoers going this Thursday.
