Dope producer Sophie Sweetland switches from D. Tiffany into new guise DJ Zozi for a faded, sample-based take on smoked out drum & bass. Recorded in her SweetPup studios in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown, this debut 12” brings together four jumped up and dazed slants on soulful rollers.
Zozi embraces hybridity throughout “Mellow Vibe”, taking on different breaks-driven moods—”Zozi’s Theme” for instance flips over some classic rave signifiers into a zonked stasis, “Snow Globe” loops almost Roulé-inspired house flavors into the mix, and the title track reaches up in a classic style with positive synths and chilled jungle shuffle.
