Zomby Delivers Long-Lost 'Mercury's Rainbow' LP
The album arrives almost a decade after it was recorded
Published Nov 23, 2017After releasing the GASP! EP earlier this year, Zomby has reached further back into his archives to unearth a long-lost full-length album nearly a decade after its completion.
Titled Mercury's Rainbow, the 16-track release is available now through Modern Love. Recorded over two weeks "around 2008-2009," the release finds Zomby interpreting grime vet Wiley's Eskibeat productions, which played an instrumental role in grime's formation.
Specifically, Mercury's Rainbow is said to document "Zomby riffing on intricately hand-programmed arpeggios, using theories of colour and its relation to the sonic chromatic spectrum — the circle of fifths — to place an expressively avant spin on the Wiley Kat's slyding Triton squares and frozen, post-garage drum patterns."
Mercury's Rainbow is available for purchase as a double-LP set on clear vinyl here, where you can also hear track previews. Read through the entire tracklisting below.
