German/Swiss duo QBIG & Zenith B change their name to QZB
After five years of establishing themselves as firm fixtures in drum & bass with releases on labels such as Flexout, Demand, Liquicity and Blendits and their monthly Random parties in Basel’s respected underground hub Sommercasino; the duo born Thomas and Ben have taken the plunge and rebranded the Dickens out of themselves. QBIG & Zenith B is over…
… Now is the time for QZB. And it started earlier this month with an outstanding debut for Critical in the form of a five track Systems EP. Sonically it’s business as usual; crisp, sleek, oft-foreboding, future-focused dark, rolling underground drum & bass. Visually it’s a clear upgrade with a name and logo that complements their aesthetic and striking stylised videos
Motivationally, QZB is a whole new energy, too. Galvanising everything they’ve achieved so far – as artists and as promoters who’ve invited many of drum & bass’s leading figures to their events, some of whom on their first Swiss booking – their Critical Systems 009 EP represents a whole new chapter for the duo as they find themselves more inspired and enthused than ever before. Whether the successes of their future will echo those of Brad’s Drink or BackRub, only time will tell, but it does seem like a new level reboot. Talking to them in their Basel HQ (in a studio below the same club they host their raves) it sounds like it, too…
