Dauntless Queens: SEE & HEAR ZONEZ V.3: SUZI ANALOGUE’S NEW AMPLIFIED SOUND AHEAD OF MOOGFEST 20
Dauntless Queens is a community of women that are disrupting the music, tech and arts space.
This week we are highlighting producer/songwriter, creator of Never Normal Records and Dauntless Queen, Suzi Analogue. Suzi returns with a fresh new edition of her audio/visual beattape series: ZONEZ V.3: The World Unwinds But The Sound Holds Me Tight – available today on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Bandcamp and more.
The new project features 11 original productions by Suzi, including the debut of Jax, a new NYC artist by way of Jamaica – and also features from DJ Earl, DJ Taye, Nappy Nappa, who has appeared on all of Suzi’s ZONEZ, Opal Hoyt (of Zenizen), Blair, and WORKFLOWW – the production duo consisting of Analogue and DJ Earl. Artwork for ZONEZ was originally created by Natalie Hands.
Inspired from her many longstanding influences, like bass, hip-hop, and soul, and club, ZONEZ V.3 explores new music ideas as well, including the environment where most of the project was recorded, Miami.
The music for ZONEZ V.3, which Analogue says is “scored to her real life” comes with 7 visual ‘moods’ visually directed by emerging visual artist Souldreamin that have been dropped daily as a countdown to ZONEZ V.3. The countdown launched with visual accompaniment to "Wildflowrr," which you can watch below. The video starts with a photo shot by Dauntless Media's founder Rachael Hardway and features a dancing woman (Najja Safara) stamped with the digital projection of fuchsia flowers along with several other beautiful audio/visual pieces ranging from Girl Gangs to Pulp Fiction and everything in between. Today, the final featured visual in the countdown is ‘Flyyy.'
Listen to the 11-track piece in it's entirety on the Dauntless Queens playlist below on Spotify.
