CZN stands for copper, zinc and nickel the raw path of materials used by percussionist and sculptor Joao Pais Filipe, composer and drummer Valentina Magaletti (from the great Tomaga) and producer Leon Marks. This is ritual music for the whole family.
"Next level, ritualistic percussion jams from blessed percussionists João Pais Filipe and Valentina Magaletti, alongside producer Leon Marks. Two trance-invoking, long-form time melters that wouldn't be out of place in one of Offen Music boss Vladimir Ivkovic's notoriously heady mid-morning DJ sets. Fans of Nihiloxica, This Heat, Donato Dozzy, Beatrice Dillon or Muslimgauze don't wanna miss this one."

No one knows where dub goes. UK duo Holy Tongue are doing their damndest to track it down. Witness: Post-punk spliced with dub the way it was done, anachronistic but futuristic like if at the end of Primer the time machine room was revealed to be This Heat’s Cold Storage studio. It’s refreshing in the 2020s to hear something so raw yet technical, unsequenced but rhythmically tight. MDonaldson (8sided.blog)
