Zombies are undead by nature and these ones seem to be not only not dead, but very much alive and active: ZOMBIES IN MIAMI is a project created by Canibal & Jenouise and despite the name they are not crawling around Miami, but shining out their light from Mexico. The couple became one of the most prominent members of Mexico's vital electronic scene over the last decade. You can call their sound a rhythmic and synth-driven house and techno hybrid, with a disco and balearic twist, which is held together by the oh so sweet Italo Drama. As the living dead always seemed to be a big inspiration for Italian filmmakers, the love seems mutual and the movie scores rubbed off on the other end as well. After highly acclaimed EPs and tracks for such diverse labels as Gerd Janson's Running Back, Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant, Prins Thomas' Internasjonal as well as Hippie Dance or Bordello A Parigi, here's their debut single for Permanent Vacation previewing their forthcoming album.
Last seen operating on Internasjonal with the delay-laden nu-disco drugginess of "Space Is The Place", Zombies In Miami pitch up on Permanent Vacation for the very first time. "Frodo" sees the long-serving Mexican duo charging off in a different direction, one that sits somewhere between vintage Inner City, the more crystalline end of the Italo-disco spectrum and the piano-heavy Balearic house revivalism of Tuff City Kids. The edited version packs a punch of course, but we'd suggest checking the full-length mix (track two), where the track's cascading synthesizer lead lines, rushing piano house riffs and bubbly, arpeggio-driven groove rise and fall throughout. The result is a giddy, loved-up workout of epic proportions.
