Press Release :
zerodB return with a punishing Braziliano-dub dancefloor filler and the world will never seem quite the same again. "A Pombo Girou" combines disorientating echo with ridiculously fat electronic bass stylings and the kind of rhythm designed to get the hips twitching. Second track "Te Quiero" continues the theme, this time a sunny piece of guitar driven mad by a hundred conga players. Building with all the beautiful self-evidence of classic house music, zerodB manage to throw a variety of influences into the blender and come out with something pumped up and downright evil enough to blow away any of the froth which usually passes for latin-influenced dance music.

Since they started properly working together some 6 years ago, Chris Vogado and Neil Combstock aka zerodB have been concocting a provocative, innovative and addictive brew of hard jazz, electro, latin, hip hop and house, laced throughout with their now signature dirty, heavy basslines. After releasing their early records on Vogado's own Fluid Ounce label, Zero dB are now signed to Ninja Tune and ready to step it up, with their debut album, "Bongos, Bleeps and Basslines" scheduled for release in September. Their main starting point is usually jazz, but they dip into a multitude of different influences and work with talented musicians and vocalists to create a track. In contrast to the general climate of somewhat old, tired, formulaic and unmemorable dance music, zero dB's meticulous production forces their audiences to discover previously undeveloped musical places. Feel it.
