ZZT, as well as being an early nineties computer game, is a long running collaboration between Zombie Nation and Tiga.
As with many collaborations the gaps between releases can be protracted – so it was a pleasant surprise when this new two-track EP release appeared after a lengthy lay-off.
Both tracks plod along nicely in a style we’ve come to expect of Zombie Nation – plenty of bleeps, thick drums and analog squelchiness – but reveal themselves as more than just filler with two unexpectedly melodic breakdown sections.
The EP retains the dark and experimental qualities of 2011’s ‘Partys Over Earth‘ but with a slightly more dancefloor-friendly feel.
‘Givin’ In‘ was released March 10 via Turbo Recordings.
