ZOZO Tek is a band that defies description. Fronted by Minneapolis' most psychedelic man and local legend - Joseph "Chaos Orb" Berns and thee #1 disco pixie Mariel Oliviera, most performances find them within the realm of avant garde disco or some kind of acid pop. However, our cassette captures them at Drone Not Drones 2016, a 28 hour long non-stop series of drone performances featuring over 50 artists. They had my favorite set of the night by far, it is an absolute gem and totally out of left field. The recording was taken between the hours of 4 and 5 AM and finds them collaborating with two bassoon players and Kool Toad on a pile of electronics, with Mr. Berns hitting his usual stride on a heavily modulated saxophone.
Recorded live at The Cedar Cultural Center and mastered by Tom Herbers and Mike Whitney at Third Ear, Minneapolis.
Highly recommended download of the entire 28 hour drone -
