Zomby’s new album is his most focussed to date.
His ultra-modern music has a unique character, and ‘Ultra’ really displays his ability to create varied and detailed mutations. On ‘Ultra’ he warps discordant Eski grime (‘Burst’, ‘Freeze’, ’Yeti’), creates dreamlike blooms on ’Her’ and Thaw’, and builds crystalline music box takes on house and 2step on ‘Glass’ and ‘I’.
Zomby also collaborates on the album with Darkstar, Rezzett, Banshee, Burial and HKE. These all throw up unpredictable fusions and immaculate fissions.
The album is housed in a metallic red sleeve, designed by Ben Drury, reflecting the glow of Zomby’s music.
