Alongside a spanking new mix feat Kanye, Jokers of the Scene and Tiga, the Kernkraft master chats about surviving the (non)-apocalypse
An eccentric studio master of high-NRG electro sounds, Munich superproducer and one half of ZZT (with Tiga), Zombie Nation known for his full on abrasiveness and perhaps less remembered for his iconic late 90s hit Kernkraft 400, returns with an intense new album on Canadian label Turbo Recordings. Sawing through carnival-esque breakdowns, moody synths, cavernous bass, to grimy Kraut-Hop, his big-room bangers allow him to work his analogue magic as heard via his new mix here. As the Mayan Apocalypse hits us today (still pending), here's what ZN would do in case of emergency:
Dazed Digital: So it's the end of the world on Friday, what would be your last words?
Zombie Nation: "Oh shiiiiit!" - but who would remember anyway.
DD: Name the four things you'd take with you during a zombie outbreak?
Zombie Nation: Bicycle, cellphone, hammock, and a bag of good blood sausages to distract them.
DD: Soundtrack to your apocalypse party?
Zombie Nation: Napalm Death - You Suffer
DD: World doesn't end, what's next?
Zombie Nation: Breakfast, then studio
