Label: U-Cover CDr Limited
Released: Apr 2006
Zool.'s first album Vadem expands the musical universe that made his two previous ep's, zoolepone & zooleptwo, released on his own Hidden Pleasure Recordings, stand out from the electronica crowd. This album emphasizes the harmonic and organic melancholy that makes his work more human than most other computer-orientated artists. Most of the tracks are not merely based upon computer-generated sounds, but are made using a lot of real-world sounds as banjo, guitar, cello, piano and voice, sometimes digitally treated in a way beyond recognition. Vadem blends diverse influences, ranging from dub to idm, over postrock to ambient, resulting in a very personal style of his own. As U-cover likes to stand for a high quality label, Zool.'s music fits perfect in their roster. For those who are not familiar with Zool.'s music it is now time to discover this musical talent.
