Zomby - Where Were You In '92


LIMITED REPRESS ON BLACK VINYL - When first released on Actress‰۪ Werk Discs imprint, ‰Û÷Where Were U in 92 ?‰۪ was instantly hailed as the rave album that was never made in the early ‰Û÷90s, a tumbling anthemic barrage of lost mixtape masterpieces from an artist who was starting to take the electronic dance scene by storm. However, ‰Û÷Where Were U in 92 ?‰۪ is not just some facsimilie-style homage to the past, taking a firm grip of the energy and sheer rushing dynamics of early hardcore breakbeat, and placing those sounds and styles smack in the centre of right now. ‰ÛÏHe‰۪s gotten to the point where he can invoke old signifiers as something more than you-had-to-be-there nostalgia: all at once, Where Were U in '92? is a history lesson, a depiction of a musical timeline that folds in on itself, and a revival that works because it approaches its subject with the idea that it simply evolved instead of died.‰۝Pitchfork (8.3) // ‰ÛÏEvery texture and every nuance is immediately recognisable, an instant memory rush. But, far from being a facsimile, it all ends up sounding a bit well, weird. Zomby treats rave the way early Young Gods treated metal.‰۝ Quietus
