Ziro's debut release aims squarely for the dark heart of the dancefloor. Punishing 4×4 kicks ride thunderous sub-basslines to devastating effect. It’s an astonishingly simple formula but it serves as a bold statement of intent from the young producer.
Early support from the likes of Mosca and Brackles on Rinse FM and BBC Radio 1 saw Ziro invited to record a guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM show back in January – a significant feat for a producer with no releases to his name.
Backing up the title tracks, a stunning, hypnotic remix from man of the moment Om Unit flips Oni on its head, Wrongspeed style. Completing the package, one of the UK’s most promising new talents – Thefft – turns in a gritty, low-slung house rework of Coded in his own inimitable fashion.
“Coded is a gleaming diamond in a whole heap of rigid no-vibe UK bass carbon copies… it’s got that groove, it’s got that sexiness, it’s meant for the club and it works in the club”
-Mosca, BBC Radio 1
