But it says a lot about the strength of these tracks- and Zomby's preternatural propensity for prolific greatness- that the seven odds and sods on Nothing make for such a strong whole. It's not quite the sound of Zomby having fun- this music is still too dark for that- but it's Zomby being his usual tangential self again, after bearing the constraints of a second cohesive album
Zomby – Nothing (2011). Posted by NewAlbumReleases. net On November - 25 - 2011. Previously on NewAlbumReleases. net: November 25, 2017 - Zomby – Mercurys Rainbow (2017).
Stream Zomby’s Album Nothing. By Sam Hockley-Smith. As much as we all love reading Zomby brag on Twitter about being the first person to do everything ever, it's a lot more fun to listen to his music. Dedication, his project from earlier this year, was a gorgeously fragile album that was basically one continuous highlight. This new thing Nothing, which is an EP that seemingly came almost out of nowhere, finds the artist in a much less sad state (except on "Trapdoor," which is pretty dark).
With the seven-song Nothing EP, the deliberateness of Dedication is gone, as we are left with a ramshackle collection of glimpses into Zomby’s back catalog, without looking too far forward. Not all is lost, though, as stunning opener Labyrinth and Sens bring back the ’90s aesthetic that made aptly-titled Where Were U in ’92? so addictive, providing an uplifting return to the dance floor– a notable departure from Dedication‘s ruminations.
Zomby - Nothing Stately though Dedication was, its serious mien and careful composition made it an introduction to Zomby that made his work seem less appealingly messy than it oftentimes is. This seven-song, 23-minute EP remedies that. It's not a heavy-duty statement-simply a seven-track sampler platter of Zomby specialties, from rave manqué to 8-bit-but that's a good part of the appeal. The music isn't tossed off, but it's made to feel like music that was-invitingly so.
Zomby’s Nothing isn’t exactly exciting, but it’s hard to criticize it for that. Clearly designed as a addendum to his Dedication album from earlier this year – which as you’ll doubtless recall, was exciting – its main intention is seemingly to explore and develop themes that have been established as part of Zomby’s musical makeup without really taking centre-stage. If not quite tying up loose ends, it’s certainly shining a light on sub-plots of the Zomby saga to date. Zomby’s 2008 album, Where Were U In ’92 tributed classic hardcore, and several tracks on Nothing look to jungle for inspiration.
