Unless you have a particularly good memory, or an encyclopaedic knowledge of Germany's long-forgotten Pharma Records imprint, you may not be aware of Zulutronic. It was a mid to late '90s side project from Jammin Unit and Air Liquide man Cem Oral (also the boss of Pharma, as it happens), and occasional production partner Roger Cobernus. They released two albums, delivering snappy and occasionally booming blends of electro rhythms, hip-hop beats, acid house sounds and ambient synths. If that sounds like a recipe for a more cultured take on big beat, that's because it is. Given how big beat has aged badly, it's a nice surprise to find that this is one blast from the past that still resonates.
