ZOMBIE DISCO SQUAD FEAT. DJ FUNK 'TWERK' (MADE TO PLAY)

Ahead of the release of the debut Zombie Disco Squad album ‘Brains’ on Jesse Rose’s Made to Play label, Nat Self joins forces with Chicago house legend DJ Funk to release his new single ‘Twerk’, out May 13th. Ready for the floor, ‘Twerk’ is raw house music underpinned by a classic Zombie Disco Squad bassline and DJ Funk’s ghetto house sensibility. The second single to be taken from ‘Brains’,‘Twerk’ is an unmissable introduction to one of the house records of the year. On the flipside Nat delivers ‘Ibiza Hooligan’, a percussive monster sure to heat up any dancefloor whether Balearic terrace or Dalston basement. A label with a deserved reputation for introducing some of house music’s most exciting artists, Made to Play’s policy of releasing just one album a year ensures the quality remains unquestionably high and ‘Brains’ follows in the footsteps of previous breakout long players from the likes of Riva Starr and Round Table Knights. The feedback sheet from the Twerk EP reads like a who's who's of dance music with a unusually diverse mix of artists supporting from Luke Solomon and Mandy to Erol Alkan and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip to name a few. With a residency at Berlin’s Watergate for Made For The Night and huge international demand for his DJ skills, London-born Nat will be making some serious noise this year as Zombie Disco Squad.

Duke Dumont "Street Walker" VIDEO (Turbo Recordings)



Seems like yesterday when I first discovered the deep and dirty productions of Duke Dumont, even though it was like at least 5 years ago. It's good to see he's still at it. The A-side from Dumont's upcoming "For Club Play Vol. 1" EP explores the seedy rhythms of sex work with this gritty video from director Ozzie Pullin. The EP is set for release on May 21st via Tiga's Turbo Recordings.
Here's some DJ support for the upcoming single: "Love love love love it. 'Street Walker' is the one for me." - Ewan Pearson "Shizu this is a dope EP. 'Street Walker' is a hit." - Crookers "DUKE DUMONT is one of the artists I wish I had signed on Ed Banger... Maximum support" - Busy P Turbo Recordings on Facebook.
