Today’s hard-hitting techno update comes in the form of ZZT’s latest release, Work Pt. 1. The single, originally a two-side vinyl, saw a digital release last week on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings label. For those of you who have taken an interest in the not-so-mainstream sound of the label’s recent releases, this one is for you. A remix from Nautiluss is an added bonus for you pure tech junkies out there.
Work Pt. 1 is a minimalist’s dream. Think of a robot, now think of a robot breakdancing. That just about describes the sound in its physical incarnation. Hard-hitting, yet groovy drums are the powerhouse behind this song. The distinct synth is what really gives it its personality, though. The layering over the bass screams “rocking” in an analog language not yet heard by man. For a more tech-inspired version, check out the dark remix by Nautiluss. Nautiluss takes the bang out of the original and replaces it with deep, shadowy textures. A perfect selection for any underground show.
