It was just the other day when a little package from LDN’s The Trilogy Tapes arrived at the office. Inside was Dean Blunt’s ‘Jill Scott Herring OST’ cassette as well as a SK8thing designed Zomby T-shirt. While opening up and stumbling through our EB Twitter feed, a post by masked dubstep & glitch producer Zomby popped up – which is quiet unusual since Zomby keeps things notoriously down low communication wise.
Besides a couple of rants and LÖLs, Zomby also dropped a link to Posh Beckham’s upcoming spring summer 2012 fashion line – the ‘fashion icon’ used some of Zomby’s tracks for her New York Fashion Week catwalk show. Anything else notable? Yes, this Tweet in particular:
Blimey! No word of his latest productions or release schedules until last night though – which is why this news came as quiet a surprise today: new Zomby ‘Nothing’ EP in December!
The digital and limited white 12″ vinyl release will come with seven new tunes via 4AD records, a quick listen during this writeup s places the EP somewhere between Zomby’s albums ‘Where Were U In ’92’ (2008) and ‘Dedication‘ (2011). While the opening track ‘Labyrinth’ and middle piece ‘Sens’ are heavy on the jungle, rave and drum&bass section, tracks such as ‘Tropdoor’ and ‘Equniox’ have a similar slow rhythm and acid sound design as the ones from his most recent album.
