LargeUp Audio: Zulu Mixtape Vol. 1


Our boys at LargeUp hip us to UK producer Zulu's Mixtape Vol. 1 in the latest installment of their Mixtape Mondays series. In their own words:

18-year-old London producer Zulu has just released a mixtape of all original material... Recently signed to tropical bass don Toddla T’s Girls Music label, Zulu is set to make some serious noise this year with his self-proclaimed Zimbabwean trance sound and upcoming EP dropping November 7th.  The African zulu elements are clear as day, as well as bits of UK funky & 2 step, house, and that good good future club that can’t be put into a box as it lacks a specific shape.  Whether or not this is a sound or style you’re used to, adding this mix to your life is highly recommended.

Stream Zulu Mixtape Vol. 1 below, grab the free DL over at dude's Facebook page and cop his Kwaito EP. You can get acquainted with more Afro-Carib riddims from the fam at LargeUp.
