Coming from Bristol, a city that has been on the cutting edge of dance music for some time now, it is perhaps unsurprising how radically different newcomer Ziro‘s work sounds from the rest of the competition. Sure, the likes of fellow Bristolians Peverelist, Kowton and Shackleton can be held up as reference points, but Ziro has a manic fervor to his music that truly sets him apart. His drums stomp about with a nigh on feral intensity, that makes his tracks prime dancefloor weapons suitable for deployment either in a cavernous European techno club or in the sweaty confines of a nightspot in his hometown. Following on from last month’s Pulse EP on Damu’s Fulcrum imprint, we roped him in to mix Hyp 142 as well as chat to us briefly about his music, influences and plans for the rest of the year.
