Florida based label leaded by well-known electro veterans Will Web (Astralwerks, Direct Beat, Joey Boy, Erotic City) and Scratch-D alias David Noller (Chaos Records, Cooltempo, Debonnaire, Rephlex), Zero One Music presents its very first release! Gathered together under Analog To Future name code, Ryan Jones and Rich Hutchings, two without complex young US talents, sign here four hard edged cuts, in pure Miami Bass Sound tradition. On A side, "Extinction Level Event" delivers a divine electrocore fury based upon a fast rhythmic, some furious industrial tonalities, a fearsome vocoder and an overstatement of wonderful apocalyptic strings. A robotic and futuristic tune that has nothing to envy to those produced by some of the genre precursors, Dynamix II or Jackal & Hyde. "Rock The Beat" goes on in a less aggressive register, sampling some of the Monotone USA 04 ("I Am The Enemy") main vocals. The dancefloor focused "Hiding The Pain" opens the flip with a loud bass line enhanced by a superb analogical synthesizer and lots of melancholic lyrics. At last, "Electro Tek", co-written with Trevor Rockwell and already published in 2004 on "The Future Sound Of Breaks" CD compilation, serves a magnificent old school production, that turns into a captivating masterpiece when a melody a la Anthony Rother appears. An essential 12'' that inaugurates brilliantly a structure called to great perspectives!
