Zoura DS: Sharp, tight and groovy AF!
Legit, these guys are funky as hell with their melodies and pumping four-on-the-floor beats got my groove on and attention during the many enjoyable listens to their new EP, 'Who’s To Say'.
The talented Australian producers from Sydney are back, driving me forward, up, down and sideways as my fingers dance away, shaking my booty in the middle of the night while writing this review. No shit, it's 1 A.M. and I’m feeling buzzed, going through their collection of music on Spotify now instead of sleeping. I guess music has that effect on me, and I’m guessing that you might feel the same way maybe? Love, right? Regardless of the time, they’re on my radar now as they return with “Who’s To Say” with an electrifying two-track EP that pays homage to the timeless elements of House music and Funk.
Their recent release have already garnered widespread attention, receiving airplay on some of the hottest radio stations, including Toolroom and Dirtybird Radio. Moreover, their music has found its way into the DJ sets of artists such as Claptone, Eldeanyo, Riva Starr, and Tiësto, cementing their reputation as rising stars in the electronic music scene and building up the Australian repertoire of quality home grown production.
What sets Zoura DS apart is their ability to seamlessly blend an eclectic array of influences, ranging from Jazz to Funk and Soul, into an auditory sensation of jackin' percussion and irresistible rhythms with really uplifting vocal samples in there. Something which I always appreciate, it gives me a story and theirs is a super positive one. Respect!
These tracks are a testament to their craftsmanship, designed with a deep appreciation for traditional instruments that will resonate with music enthusiasts of all kinds, no wonder it’s been getting so much well deserved attention.
As they release their new powerhouse EP, Zoura DS gets your funk shoes on and takes you on a sonic journey that makes you hop, bop and jiggle, drop, stop and wiggle? Er, I don’t know, it sounded good when I was writing it, but don’t mind me and my silliness - have a listen for yourself!
With their mastery of diverse musical elements and instrumentation, they continue to push the boundaries of the genre, delivering a fresh and exhilarating sound that is bound to captivate both new and seasoned listeners alike. With the “Who’s To Say” EP, Zoura DS invite you to experience the fusion of classic and contemporary, a testament to their dedication to the art of electronic music.
