Record Label: 4AD
Years of elusiveness has led to a huge amount of mystique and anticipation building around Zomby, with this in mind - it's with a sigh of relief that 'Dedication' is well worth the wait.
The journey to this release has been interesting to say the least. Very different from his post-jungle pastiche debut Where Were U in '92, this album explores a far more melodic side to the mysterious London producer.
Labelled "Dedication" and supposedly recorded in tribute to "someone much loved and sorely missed", the album is soaked with melancholic minor-key melodies throughout. Lonely haunting piano solos give minor respites from the beat-based pixelated productions we know and love. We are pleased to say that we have waited in anticipation and have been luckily delivered an incredible album that sees a well-rounded and mature output from one of London's most enigmatic and talented producers.
