13 - Zombie Nation - Meathead by Turbo Recordings published on 2012/11/30 12:39:29 +0000 Turbo Recordings is proud to present RGB, the fifth album from top-class veteran super-producer Zombie Nation. The LP's 14 tracks refine and expand upon the Munich studio genius' signature sound, making it a worthy successor to previous classics like Black Toys and Zombielicious, not to mention his groundbreaking work as half of cult demigods ZZT. This is some of the biggest-sounding dance music you'll hear all year, infused with a masterful attention to detail and one of the scarcest commodities in the genre: genuine character and personality. Since emerging on the scene with a track on the shortlist of the biggest stadium anthems ever ("Kernkraft 400"), Mr. Nation has delivered a stellar series of albums, EPs and remixes, in addition to becoming a popular draw as a mindblowing live performer. His sound combines handmade Italian grooves, stark German efficiency, and a decidedly pro-ethnic swing. There is nothing overtly trendy going on here, no stadium EDM or poolside lifestyle house. These are off-the-leash party tracks that dance to their own tune. This pioneer of crowdsourced music creation is an absolute master of the MPC, and a true analog studio wizard, resulting in a feel simultaneously loose and tight, like a pair of Munich disco-lederhosen - bursting in the crotch and open on the calves. RGB is the work of an artist at the peak of his considerable powers, featuring music that literally could not have been created by anyone else.
