Last Monday Peterborough synth-house duo ZX dropped their brand new High Crimes EP on Metamimetic. The three jam EP combines catchy licks with layered synthlines and Parisian filters which at times sounds refreshingly Ed Banger-esque. Giving the nod to a variety of genre including 80s synth-pop and new-wave, ZX have pioneered their own brand of maximalist house to great results. This is a solid debut EP from a pair you can expect to hear a whole lot more from.
If you’re London based, be sure to head over to the legendary Old Blue Last in Shoreditch on Friday 20th August, where you can catch ZX playing a live set alongside a stack of other artists including GDD homie Fazhands, to celebrate the UK launch of the Metamimetic label. In the meantime though, check out their EP as well as the firey Jupiter bonus track:
