12" Vinyl UK
6 diverse drum work-outs from Jonas Friedlich.
The first track 'Principal Thing' is a dirty jungle-acid jam with a haunting vocal sample reviving one of the biggest dub-poets ever who was shot 36 years ago. Title track 'Gizzea' continues the record with banging broken kicks and percussion getting out of hand with rough noise excursions. 'Pow' completes the a-side with a simple but functional idea of messing around with a D&B break at 103bpm creating a heavy hip-hop vibe. The flip side starts out with 'No Delivery', a bass-heavy electro tool blended with tribal percussions before 'RioRio' confuses with jammy synth weirdness and trippy vocals while bouncing on some sort of latino acid rhythm. Last track 'Pyra' starts in a laid-back mood reminding of some old dub-techno styles but evolving into a playful drum-jam full of smokey spring reverb and tape saturation to round off a diverse 6-track mini album.
