Gorillaz Sound System fronted by Remi Kabaka will be taking over Zuma on Thursday, April 30th. The Gorillaz, who have had hit songs like “Feel Good Inc” and “Clint Eastwood,” are a concept group started by Damon Albarn (from Blur) and Jamie Hewlett. The duo makes music with a revolving cast of contributors under the guise of a four-person animated group.
London-based music insider Remi Kabaka, who will be controlling the decks on Thursday, is an accomplished drummer, producer, and the founder of Gorillaz Sound System, as well as the man who discovered M.I.A.!
The Gorillaz don’t just make awesome music, they are also diehard music fans just like you and me. G.S.S. is a chance to hear a curated set of the kind of music they love. Coming from such a talented crew, there’s bound to be a wide selection of interesting songs that you’ve never heard before, plus a few exclusive remixes for Gorillaz aficionados.
The event takes place at Zuma inside the Landmark shopping center in Central. Zuma has been the site of major parties in the past and is the former location of the Alive Not Dead Halloween party. It’s spread out over two floors with an indoor and outdoor area.
If you’re curious what sort of music they’ll be playing, have a look at the Gorillaz Sound System soundcloud page for a few of their mixes. Our guess is that it will be everything from futuristic Bass music to African Electro beats.
The Gorillaz on occasion have been known to cover other people’s music. If you haven’t heard it before, check out their amazing version of The XX hit, “Crystallized.”
The event is brought to you by the promoters: Do What You Love and Fresh Off The Boat.
