He was scheduled to perform at the massive Hard Haunted Mansion event in Los Angeles. We had a couple questions lined up which the curious Zombie Nation fan would find interesting, especially questions about his side project tag-team with Tiga known as ZZT. ZZT has brought us such tracks Lower State of Consciousness (which Justice has remixed), as well as the hugely popular The Worm.
One big mystery has always been history behind the ZZT name. As disappointing as it may sound, there’s no funky story behind it. ZZT is simply a combination of the first letters Z of Zombie Nation and T of Tiga. The extra Z is simply there because it sounds good, and doesn’t really stand for anything…. but we still dig the name.
Second, we asked about upcoming tracks. Tiga has been pushing for a ZZT LP sometime in the near future for the Turbo label. In the meantime though, they’ve still been working on new tracks. As a matter of fact, they have two tracks which were nearly completed last week. Around the time that this is published, Zombie Nation and Tiga should be in Montreal mastering the two new ZZT tracks.
Zombie Nation dropped the new tracks this Halloween night. The tracks are not yet completed, but the general gist of it can be seen in the video. Click it below.
Yevgeny Alexandrovitch Pozharnov, Russian DJ/Producer a.k.a. Proxy, performed at Festival Transmusicales de Rennes. After playing a few of his signature tracks like Dance in Dark and Raven, he surprised the crowd by dropping an unknown track, containing some dirty, glitchy, and dark synths, and a build-up with mind-blowing potential! The track was identified as Who the Fuck Are You? which will be a future Turbo Recordings release sometime in the next few months. In other Proxy news, rumour has it Proxy will be remixing a few tracks including The Worm by ZZT and Mind Dimension from Tiga.
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.
