Evolved out of the Brooklyn based Lectric Sands studio / label and featuring members of their Zoovox and Mazing Vids, this ‘super-alumni’ is a perfect meeting for the label and US brotherhood Out 2.
Based around a longtime friendship, this slow-burner project is centered around the NYC life of onetime roommates, DJ sparrers and just possibly the latter day duo behind the Locks & DDM project that was released (semi-)anonymously in 2016, step out in to the (fluorescent) light.
With just one Out 2 track given to the world back in 2012 on Lectric Sounds 1, these recordings have morphed for a near decade to reach fruition in long-form EP and soon to come ‘Showcase’ vocals and dubs album.
While some is known of Mr Jeremy Campbell – forum/blog educator, DJ Tropical Jeremy monikererer, half-a-Zoovox and studio (dub)don - his cohort, the little known R. Zanzibar remains a man of mystery.
Zanzibar’s free-flowing lyrics, shredded guitar and bass grooves come together before plunging into Campbell's wall-of-dub mixing matrix. With fellow Lectric-head, Ben Gebhardt contributing sometimes-synths and general mixpertise, Out 2 offer a timely reminder of the best of their hometowns post-punk / new wave history, but with a laid back irreverence and killer, leg shaking, live-dubbed grooves that are very much for today.
