I cannot believe I slept on this banger of an album up until now. Hearing it was like finding the album I've been searching forever to find.
Thank you for keeping our libraries fresh with these amazing tracks!~
Favorite track: The Technogaia Accelerates Technology and You!.
Originally gaining attention under his former project Acetantina with his vapor-infused footwork record ‘Temple of Null,’ which went on to gain cult status in underground electronic music; Kaizo Ziad returns with his first album under his new alias Kaizo Slumber.
In a world where internet music scenes and styles are predominantly cynical and overly ironic in nature, Kaizo Slumber’s music stands out as it embraces the idealism of '90s and early 2000s retro-futuristic aesthetics.
‘The Kaizo Manifesto’ revolves around hyper-futurism and environmentalism, and the perceived contradiction of those two concepts. All told through hard hitting ‘90s-rave hardcore inspired sounds with a modern sheen baking the plastic-y optimism of that era in electronic music into the sound of this album.
A bold start for both the German-Libyan producer and the new year.
