Zero T drops ‘Former Self’ EP on The North Quarter
Drum & Bass veteran Zero T releases a versatile EP on The North Quarter 5 track EP featuring Dublin’s Mango x MathMan, Loah and Steo.
Irish Drum & Bass veteran Zero T returns to Amsterdam imprint The North Quarter with his ‘Former Self’ EP. Following up from his ambitious multi-genre project ‘Baby Grand’, Zero T now strips things down to a focused five-track project that manoeuvres through a broad range of styles within Drum & Bass.
From his Soulful reinterpretation of Mango x MathMan’s ‘Lonely Night’ to the dubbed out weight of ‘Clash’ – with Myth – this is a well-balanced EP that displays Zero T’s expansive vision and is a testimony to his growth as a producer and technician.
“I had a number of aims with my second EP for The North Quarter. While my first release ‘Baby Grand’ was an opportunity to explore working in different styles of music and utilising live instrumentation, I wanted this second release to be stripped back to basics: five Drum & Bass tracks that cover the spectrum of what I like within this music. There’s two vocal tunes in the classic ‘Liquid’ style, one tune that could easily be described as Jump Up, a Dub/Jungle influenced track with Myth and finally what I would call a “listening track”; something not necessarily designed for DJs/clubs. If someone wants to know what I stand for, then this release says it all.” – Zero T
Today we premiere ‘Clash’ which sees Zero T join forces with Bristol-based rising star Myth. This is a dub/jungle infusion with nods to the early days. The bassline on ‘Clash’ is wicked and the use of techniques and sounds really add to it and take it to new levels, it is genius and ticks all my boxes. I can definitely see myself dancing like no one’s watching at a rave. God, I miss the raves!
