Biography

Zomby is a British electronic musician who began releasing music in 2007. He has released music on several labels, including Hyperdub, Werk Discs, 4AD, and You Never Been to England. Zomby’s influences include jungle music and Wiley’s eskibeat sound.

Zomby’s first major release was the Zomby EP in 2008 on Hyperdub.

He released his first full length album, Where Were U in ‘92?, also in 2008. The album’s title refers to the opening line from the M.I.A song “XR2” and is a homage to the rave scene of the early 1990s, reflected by Zomby’s mixture of chiptune-inflected UK Garage style with the more upbeat, ravey stylings of breakbeat house. Zomby used equipment from the period, such as the Akai S2000 sampler and Atari ST computer.
In 2009, he released a subsequent collection of tracks, One Foot Ahead of the Other.
In 2011, Zomby signed to 4AD Records, on which he released Dedication, also in 2011. In a four-star review in The Guardian, it was described as “an album of pensive, thought-provoking sadness,” drawing comparisons to pianist Keith Jarrett and 1990s techno act Spooky. Later that year, he released the Nothing EP.

In 2013, Zomby released a double album, entitled With Love.

    Dude is a genuine piece of shit. Saw him in Boston; he didn't even do anything, just smoked all night, touching the touch pad to his computer to fiddle some nonexistent knob every five minutes or so. Someone flicked him off or something so he threw a cigarette at the guy and was trying to get down to fight him. Haha, great way to treat your "fans". Zomby has that inflated ego, trying to overcompensate for something. Seems like a tumblr madonna more than anything, interested in his fashion, money, and showing people he likes to smoke weed. So cool, for a 14 year old.

    I probably won't translate that last shout, there's a sort of solace I found in showing apathy for good spelling/grammar, kinda comical but still a good underlying moral message. Both are good artists, blud.
