Zomblaze is a Magyar that drops downtempo glitch-hop of a rare caliber, matching British and American contemporaries in innovation and originality, and wiping the floor with other stagnating Continental producers of trip-hop.
Favorite track: Hundian.
Including the original sampled track before the remix was a beautifully executed choice. This isn't my usual cup of tea when it comes to sound, but there is a lot of very intelligent things going on here that have turned my ears to come back like a siren song for another listen.
Favorite track: Breathe Deep feat. RK.
We are kindly initiating Zomblaze' current wisdom in music production, before twistedly reaching back in time to the second volume of Machinstruments.
The present material is holding on to moderate pace, and shares the common glitch-hop ground with his previous works. Only these tracks are more laid back, with less harsh stimulus on the nerves. The kick-off theme is RKs’ original version of ’Breathe Deep’, that inspired a remix take, and is an extension of the cover artwork, also by the hands of RK. 'Stratosphere' gives the rock-bottom here, the other sounds are just gathering around it reflectively, unveiling a different musical perception of Zomblaze. 'New Age' has a gently improving, and cleverly shifting pulsation, that leads you through the whole EP unawarely, so much that you don't stop, until listening it all at once.
Chi Recordings was brought to life in 2001 to bring down barriers in genres of electronic music. The label became a hideout

Chi's goal is to entertain, and somehow make an impact on the taste of the supporting fans, through 60+ vibrating releases of remarkable Hungarian producers, and some of the worldwide bigshots....more
