A duo created in 2008, Zumo are synonymous in their obsession of music. Not just about house music, but anything with a dusted groove, rich melody, ambient mood or refreshing lyrics. The concept of the project is to have fun and not take things too seriously. "We have no real artistic backgrounds or radical formative years of living in different countries, we just love to write and release music and if we can have a party whilst doing it then all is right with the world".
When it comes to the dance floor, the most important thing for these guys if a funky polished groove with flavorsome vibe. They like to blur the line between different sounds, keeping the direction unknown. "Dance music in particular, is always evolving and its hard to just go out and play deep house or techno. There always seems to be some sort of style or sound being revived, take disco/funk for example. This stuff just cannot be ignored".
Zumo like to take things deep, but with an objective approach like to show essence in their productions. 2009 saw Zumo release their first 12" cut on the Hypercolour imprint with their ‘Warped Warehouse Remix' of Frankie Flowers' ‘It's Funk, It's House' with big support from London to Berlin, around and back again. Following this, Zumo saw their debut release with Spanish Label Flumo Recordings with their 'Organic EP', supported by many DJ's and artists including; Luciano, Matthew Dear and Panorama Bar's Margaret Dygas.
Zumo promise big things following foregoing success with music coming out on Hypercolour's Losing Suki Records, Flumo Records and Landed Records. It doesn't stop there so keep a close eye...
