Since issuing a clutch of 12”s in the late-noughties and the 2008 release of his debut album Where Were U In 92? - a rave-homage made using equipment from the period - Zomby has consistently proven himself to be a unique presence in an increasingly cluttered field.
Following the success of his debut, it took him three long, thoughtful years to next break cover, this time with an altogether different record. Dedication (2011) was an after-hours meditation on mortality, weighed down with an audible sadness, and it was abundantly clear why he had taken time out. Not only did it deliver an unexpected twist, its surprisingly human qualities also offered a rare, candid glimpse of an artist who prefers anonymity and little fanfare. The response was unanimous - he had written a modern masterpiece: “A mind-blowing record and one that will stand the test of time” DJ (9/10); “Downbeat and terrifically eerie” The Observer (4/5); “The scary thing is (that) he’s anywhere near peaked” FACT (4.5/5). An accompanying seven-track EP (Nothing) followed six months later, acting both as an encore bow and cue to retreat back to the shadows. With Love is Zomby's third album. An astonishing 33 tracks that collectively trace an arc through dance music’s history, revealing an artist in his most creative phase yet. Divided in to two volumes that move invariably between a dancefloor focus and darkened emotional introspection, With Love is the work of a producer who has absorbed the shifting textures and plains of electronic music first hand, and reconfigured them into a definitive, sprawling love letter to the soulful dance music of his past.
NanosauR is the moniker of 23 year-old artist/producer Michael Solorzano.
Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, NanosauR (Lil B, Dev) is an artist who will command your attention in 2012.
With washed out sunsoaked reverberated vocals layered over uptempo electronic and chillwave sounds, NanosauR brings a much-needed freshness to the saturated world of electronic music and its popular indie s
Solorzano is already having a big year in 2012 highlighted by the release of his new album Afterglow. Crafted over a 10-month period, Afterglow is 16-track electronic journey made in the vein of romance and late night parties with the people who mean the most. He has already released three videos from the new album for "Gold Coast," "Move Your Feet," and "This Can't Be."
So far this year has been fruitful with Nanosaur preforming a number of live shows this spring including opening slots for national acts Zion I, Tokimonsta, Teams, Yalls, and performances at this year's Noise Pop Music Festival and Noisette Music and Food Festival.
2012 is shaping up to be the year NanosauR comes out of the bedroom and onto the national scene. Establishing himself as one of the most exciting electronic artists coming out of the Bay Area, it is only a matter of time before he begins his conquering of the United States and beyond.
