Unstoppable percussionist Valentina Magaletti pairs with dub scientist Zongamin for an unruly run of ragged dream-pop-post-punk steppers.

Suono Assente (the English translation of which is 'I’m Absent') was the first release under the V/Z moniker from Vanishing Twin bandmates Valentina Magaletti and Susumu Mukai (aka Zongamin). Veering away from the psychedelic pop of Vanishing twin, V/Z leans more heavily on influences from hip-hop, dub, post-punk and electronica. At times on 'Caffe Giallo' they sound like a 1970s Italian giallo soundtrack by Morricone, all druggy Hammond whistles, deadpan vocals and low-slung bass. Like Froid Dub, they tick all the boxes for us!
