ZZT have been with us since 2007 and have consistently if not that regularly released defining electro bangers that have always found their way into the record boxes that count. ‘The Worm‘ was perhaps their most notable achievement (2008), and despite Electro Bangers loosing a little of their former glory ‘ZZT – ZZafrika‘ (2010) still managed to serve ZZT with another big release.
Off the back of these releases ZZT are currently preparing the release of the debut LP and like Boys Noize and a few others they are one of the few electro artists who have managed to maintain a credible profile despite the environment around them increasingly demanding more subtlety in their music. Unsurprising then to find that their next single ‘Party’s Over Los Angeles’ is a fairly un-subtle main room Acid track, however it is interesting to find that the stand out track on the single is the remix by Jon Convex. Jon Convex aka one half of Instra:Mental is a producer who likes well textured layered sounds and he gives the single a much more subtle fuller main room sound, perhaps suggesting that even the mainstays of Electro are also gravitating to these newer sounds.
