On november 7, ZZT will be releasing their first ever album, called Partys over earth. Last week though they also released the track Partys over Los Angeles and a couple of remixes (Turbo 112). This is the Jon Convex version that reflects the vanguard of new-school UK-bass influenced techno.
Don’t forget to listen to the entire new ZZTalbum by the way!
PARTYS OVER EARTH is relentless, uncompromising Combat Funk. If the new ZZT were a drug, it would be DZZMT. Not the stuff some loser shaman huffs behind the village gas station, but a new-school cut of Freebase Free-Bass that tears out your central nervous system and forces it to dance with the hottest elf you’ve ever seen.
Don’t even try to “share” it. Save your generosity for when you’re reduced to eating Mayan Calendars to survive.

Here on Phase02 we’re always open to a lot of different genres. So this post is dedicated to the beauty of music in general! You’ll find some techno, tech-house, dubstep and even eurodance! So go on, don’t wait, start reading!
Swedish producer Tony Senghore has released his latest EP this week, called Score! It features six great techno electro’ish house tracks. The following tune, called “Ravers March”, is also part of the EP. It starts a bit hesitatingly with a piano doing the intro but it steadily builds up to a superb beat! Buy the whole EP right here!
I Feel Love is the newest EP of Electrosexual & Mz Sunday Luv. Electrosexual, who has recently worked with Shunda K. (of Yo! Majesty), Peaches, David Carretta, Kiko & Scream Club, now teams up with Berlin’s wild multi-artist vocalist Mz Sunday Luv. The featured track here made me think of Kosheen meeting Miss Kittin in a forrest with Proxy playing some beats in the background. It’s also a form of eurodance I think, if that ever was genre, which to me always sounded pretty weird actually.. do check it out! The whole EP, that features 5 tracks, was released on november 15th. You can buy it here!
The brand new EP from Kraddy, called Labyrinth, was digitally released on November 9th. For those of you who are not so familiar with the name Kraddy, he’s a former member of L.A. based The Glitch Mob and known for his experiments with music genres. Labyrinth, released in collaboration between Alpha Pup Records and Minotaur Recordings, is a crowd moving EP loaded with powerful rhythms, epic symphonics, and savage gauntlets of body-throttling bass… a style Kraddy likes to call, “Led Zeppelin 3000.” The 5-track original collection includes elements of hip hop, dubstep, dancehall, and rock that are woven together to create a brutally pounding EP. The featured track here is called “into the labyrinth” and will most certainly make your head go up and down! Oh and do turn your speakers up to actually feel the track! Buy it here!
To end, I’d like you guys to have a listen to the latest The Advent track. I don’t have the permission to post it here but do check out the video! It has been released on the “Kombination Research” label and the EP also features two tracks of Minimal Rome. This is good old techno my friends! Also big up to Pedro Delgardo of Yin Yang Records for playing this track during his radioshow and therefore keeping me up to date! Buy the EP here!
1. What is Shobaleader One?
Shobaleader One is my band. Last summer a bunch of kids got in contact with me. They were talking about forming an ensemble, which I thought was a ridiculous idea but I was impressed by their perseverance so we met up. Their idea was that they wanted the ‘fantasy group’ I had written about in connection with ‘Just A Souvenir’ to become a real entity that would record and tour. So we had a go at doing some recording and the story so far is documented on this record.
2. Who is in the band?
Basically a bunch of people who you may or may not have heard of from other bands and projects. Part of their idea is that this music is a completely clean break with whatever they’ve done in the past so I’m not allowed to mention any names. I can tell you that they are pretty frightening players.
3. What are the aims of Shobaleader One?
The overall aim is to articulate my music through the medium of a band. I always thought that a band would be a limiting thing. I’ve got very used to being able to make music by programming or playing without having to explain anything to anyone, and I assumed it would slow everything down if I had to. Actually it has made it quicker because I’m not trying to be four people simultaneously any more. I’m not over-explaining anything to them as they’ve got strong ideas of their own and I want to hear that in the final results.
4. Do you have live plans?
At the moment the plan is to tour next year after we have recorded more material. Playing live is part of the focus of this music. I’m really excited about playing live as this group of musicians is an extremely potent mixture. I’ve no idea what it’s going to be like touring with them as not one of us is what you’d call easy going. Every member of this band is a high-tension freak so who knows what’ll end up happening!
5. How did the Mr Oizo remix come about?
That was Pedro’s idea from Ed Banger. I’ve always had respect for that bunch. I thought it would be great because Oizo is on quite a different tip to Shobaleader One.
6. What’s next?
I’m writing more material for the band to record. It’s an ongoing experiment. Each one of us is trying to develop the sound of their instrument. It’s really exciting to be involved with instrumental players who are as into sonic experimentation as much as the actual music. I’ve also been in contact with Andre from Outkast recently.
7. How would you describe the sound of Shobaleader One and are there any
specific sounds, artists or albums that have influenced this new
We are playing my compositions, so in that respect it relates quite clearly to what I’ve done before, but as I’m not doing much playing or programming it is sonically quite different. It sounds more focused. Lots of musos end up just making their music a platform to display their skill. The great thing about this lot is that although they are great players they keep 99% of that hidden and just use it to give a very acute delivery of the songs.
Musically speaking these kids come from a metal background but they’re all bang into really slick R&B which I found quite funny at first but it’s making more sense as we go on. The basic premise at the outset was ‘space pop’ -a utopian pop music hallucination. It’s a stand against the affectation of knowing indifference in urban life and its corollary in music. I’ve always wanted to sabotage coolness as for me music is about laughing and crying, not about standing around smoking cigarettes.
Time for a new load of tracks! Every day we receive tons of new things and trying to listen to everything is not that easy, but we try! Therefore, here’s a personal selection of the things we’ve recently received. Lot’s of variation so fun for everyone!
Let’s go downtempo first, shall we! Egotomb did a rework of Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy. It’s a couple of BPM’s faster now than the original and it creates a nice vibe! Really love this one!
Time for something completely different then! Moscow Youth Cult, based in Nottingham UK, produces tracks which they call “VHS pop”. In their e-mail they also referred to Four Tet, Fuck Buttons and Boards of Canada, having more or less the same style/sound. I was intrigued by that description so I listened to their latest album.. and yep it’s good! Really reminds a bit of obscure 70′s sci-fi films! They even have a track called Phase IV, so we really couldn’t ignore that .
To finish, here’s the sickest track I’ve heard in a while! The guy calls himself Wondawulf, he’s from Budapest and he creates drumstep. Yep drumstep… take some drum&bass, add a bit of dubstep and there you have it.. moreover the following tune also has a bit of a jazzy feel.. take a listen, you’ll know what I mean! Also check out the video, hilarious! It’s a 320, let’s see if you guys dare to drop this one in public!
