Zuco 103 Whaa!
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Six Degrees
Take the title as a passionate cry of joy, or a question in the form of an imperative. Zuco 103‘s new disc can only be expressed in semi-nonsensical verbalizations: part Afrobeat/bossa nova drive, part electronic thump, part soul-injected jazz funk rave-up, and part studio dub workout (complete with two typically unpredictable contributions from Lee "Scratch" Perry). The Amsterdam-via-Brazil group is better known for more direct electro-bossa; while that‘s still here-along with Lilian Vieira‘s sunny vocals-Whaa! proves Zuco capable of exploring a range of musical possibilities with both youthful energy and intimate subtlety.
