Zero Tep – Phaethon

Zero Tep – Phaethon


Zero Tep has taken a massive leap forward on his new album A Trick Of Physics, fusing both jazz stylings and prog indulgences to the ever pliable framework of footwork music.

The album as a whole is a broad sweeping and (more crucially) colourful listen, trading as much in free-form musicianship as it does ornately arranged drum programming. It would be easy for a record with ambitions as lofty as this to come across as either somewhat arch or merely rudderless noodling but Zero Tep, who has always had a deft ear for melody and a tendency to pack his records with an immediate gut punch has struck a marvellous balance between experimentation and maximum impact.

It’s particularly refreshing to see and artist taking the tropes of footwork to slightly further reaches than the usual club-centric juke and battle focused beat tracks and as such, we’re urging you to actually purchase a copy of the entire record from the Subviolet Bandcamp instead of merely streaming a few tracks here and there. Definitely one for those who were impressed by scope and widescreen assertions of albums like Ital Tek’s Nebula Dance and Kode9’s Nothing.
