Review: Having previously impressed with a handful of sporadic singles releases, Tiga and Florian Senfter finally unveil a full-length of ZZT material. Those who enjoyed previous much-played singles "Lower State Of Consciousness" and "The Worm" will be in their element, as much of Partys Over Earth explores similar hard-wired territory. In addition to the relentless machine rhythms and droning dancefloor workouts (of which the album includes many fine examples), the duo has wisely included a smattering of experimental pop and downtempo electro moments. As a general rule, these that really hit the mark, with the quirky vocal outing "Nickel Und Dime" standing out.

Review: Collecting together some of the enormous remixes to have sprung from Tiga and Zombie Nations' ZZT project over the years, this new Turbo collection is simply faultless and a must-have for fans of the most fearless electro-tech of the last five years. From Julio Bashmore's tranquil take on "ZZafrika" to Justice's disco-destroying remake of "Lower State of Consciousness", via contributions from Proxy, Erol Alkan, Gesaffelstein, Duke Dumont and Clouds, this is a simply indispensable revisit through some hands-down classics.

Review: ZZT (aka Tiga and Zombie Nation) have enlisted the talents of Instra:mental's Jon Convex and hard-to-pin-down producer Duke Dumont to remix the lead single from their forthcoming debut album. Entitled "Partys Over Los Angeles", the original is a typically hard hitting piece of warped electro from the duo, but Jon Convex's revision adds a futuristic sheen to the track, softening the sharper bass edges and adding some rhythmic swing. The Duke meanwhile whips the original's demented synth hook into even more frenzied territory!

Review: Whilst Turbo have demonstrated a willingness to think outside the box in recent times (most notably a Murphy Jax release that featured Populette and Freak Seven remixes) this ZZT release will no doubt please fans of the label's trademark sound. "Vulkan Sound" is every bit as abrasive as you'd expect from Tiga and Florian, craftily building from a scratchy groove into the kind of ever twisting tunnel of white noise that sends the Friday night Fabric crowd crazy. Be sure to check the requisite remixes, with Turbo's resident Russian speaker worrier Proxy borrowing rhythmic ideas from an under appreciated Felix Da Housecat jam amidst the usual array of crescendo building synth madness. Joining him is BNR's Jan Driver, whose remix will please fans of tracks that begin in the lower recesses of the speakers and dig up all the dirt as they reach stereo parity in sync with massive 808 kicks and thumping bass, while UK techno don Perc turns in a driving, industrially tinged reimagination.

Review: Florian Senfter aka Zombie Nation and Tiga's ZZT project gets the remix treatment with a diverse set of results. At the raucous, bleepy house end of the spectrum are the versions by Clouds and Sound of Stereo, with the latter's tweaky remix sounding restrained compared to the atonal madness of the former's reshape. It's not all noisy exuberance though; Gesaffelstein's remix seeks to plumb to Drexciyan depths with a bassline that sounds like it was inspired by the Detroit legends and the versions from Crowdpleaser and Plein Soleil do a fine approximation of raw, analogue house. However, it's Julio Bashmore who steals the plaudits here with a soaring bassline fused with intelligent techno style melodies for an unforgettably sublime outcome.
