Zombie Nation – Ticket EP
Get Physical Music [GPM442]
“Ticket is one of these tracks to the idea came easy, but it took many attempts to get the sound right. Mixing is a passion of mine, and that is why over the years it has become a big part of my production process. You probably save time by doing all that after the track is done but you will get different results. And ‘efficient’ was never a thing for me when making music. I like to chisel around on single elements until they fit, it can be painful but it’s what I do” – Florian Senfter

After releasing largely on his own UKW label, Zombie Nation now makes a huge debut on the mighty Get Physical Music.
Zombie Nation is German DJ and producer Florian Senfter, the man behind a massive collection of esoteric electro and techno tracks and albums. A mainstay of International Deejay Gigolo and Turbo, Senfter twists weird sounds and computer game soundtracks into his own frizzled version of techno. Also a mesmeric live artist, he is a collector of vintage synths and that always shines through in his richly textured music.
First up here is the brilliantly twisted ‘Ticket’. It’s a typically unusually tune with bobbling bass that keeps you on your toes as lead synths get skewed, stretched and smeared in all different directions. The groove builds and builds and its Florian’s mastery of his machines that keeps you locked in.
Then comes ‘Drafty’, a more curious and deep tune that sucks you down the rabbit hole where piano chords and warped synths keep you on edge. Crisp boom-bap drums drive the whole thing along and ensure this is another classic Zombie Nation freak-out. No one sounds like ZN even after all these years, and this EP proves that
