Zomby Signs to 4AD, Preps New Album
Published Apr 08, 2011Zomby is still riding a wave of acclaim following his 2008 full-length Where Were U in '92? and its 2009 followup EP One Foot Ahead of the Other. Next, the dubstep-loving producer will be looking to reach a much a larger audience, as he's inked a deal with the storied 4AD.
On May 10, the imprint will put out a limited-edition ten-inch featuring the new track "Natalia's Song." As 4AD points out on its website, the song "initially debuted as part of a radio mix from Burial and Kode9 late last year." Listen to the chilled-out cut below.
Even more exciting for Zomby fans is this: the label says that "the single is the first material to be taken from the 4AD-released album due later this year."
Zomby also has some more friends in high places. He recently got kudos from Panda Bear during a NPR guest DJ set, and next month will appear at the Animal Collective-curated instalment of ATP.
