We’re back from the epic Hard Summer Festival, watching Tiga, Soulwax, Erol Alkan and many more artists tear up the crowd with their bangin’ beats. Unlike last year how Hard got shut down at the Forum, Hard Summer Fest this was an absolute success! A big thank you to the Hard crew for making it happen! We had an opportunity to speak to Tiga, as he informed us that the new ZZT release is 80% done. We’re expecting some good news soon. Photos will be up soon…

Straight out of Quebec, Turbo Recordings has posted on their myspace a teaser of the new track from ZZT. The Worm by Tiga and Zombie Nation–collectively known as ZZT– will be released on the label soon and is one of the most sought after tracks in the scene. A few weeks ago we had posted a live bootleg of the Erol Alkan remix of Worm, as dropped by 2ManyDJs in a live set. That bootleg leak only included a small portion of the actual track. This teaser is about a minute and a half in length, and is more reflective of the release version of the anticipated glitchy-dancey soundpiece. But let me tell you this: the track is EPIC. It will definitely get a crowd jumping and screaming. I’d consider it a sin to drop it at anything other than full throttle.
Sorry, it’s not the complete track. We don’t have it. If we did, we’d show you; [But if we showed you, we'd have to kill you...] For now, though, the one-minute-21-second-long low-bitrate clip should do you justice. After all, you can’t get it anywhere else right now. Okay. Enough of the hype… Download the goddamn track already.
Expect TURBO 058 to be released soon. [whatever that means...]

ZZT is a collaboration between Tiga and Zombie Nation. The 12″ Lower State of Consciousness record on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings is the group’s only release, and features the Munich version of the track, as well a remix by Justice.
In the most recent issue of MixMag, Erol Alkan had listed a track titled The Worm by ZZT as one of his top tracks of the month. Although in the list, there has been quite a bit of confusion about this mysterious track, as it had never been heard…
2ManyDJs (AKA Soulwax) dropped the track at the Creamfields Music Festival last week. Originally an unknown track in the set list, the web community has identified it as ZZT – The Worm. We have ripped it from the set and posted it below for your listening pleasure. The Worm will probably be released on Turbo Recordings later this year..
In addition, Erol Alkan has just announced today that he will be doing a remix of the track.
The ZZT remix I have made is the one which features on the 2manydjs/Creamfields/radio 1 mix. I should point out that its more of a re-edit and re-mix of the elements more then a full blown REMIX, REWORK or REANIMATION. I love the original and just wanted to make it longer, give it some extra little bits and get my missus and a friend to clap over the top.
Following the success of ‘Lower States Of Conciousness’, ZZT (aka Tiga and Zombie Nation) release ‘The Worm’, currently topping Erol’s dancefloor chart.
Erol provides the re/edit/mix/work (delete were applicable), taking much of the original, extending the groove and attuning it into more of a bass mangling monster then before.
Soon to be released on Tiga’s Turbo Records.
A clip of the Erol Alkan rework has been posted on the Turbo Recordings myspace page. We have an [updated] myspace rip of the track HERE
