[DN.04] Rico Zerone - Quick Freeze (2009, Disconinjaz)

DN.04-b1-Rico Zerone-Quick Freeze Balearic Extended Mix by disconinjaz

Rico Zerone, our 16-bit agent from Vienna, Austria, presents three tracks somewhere between VGM electro-funk and arcade-disco complemented with an extended balearic remix by Owen Meyers and Dimitry Ghost. Lo-fi 80’s full on!

Rico Zerone is our 16-bit VGM-disco agent from Vienna, Austria. After discovering the Micromusic netlabel and other chiptune related communities, he decided to follow the evolution of electronic music. By ascending through the synthetic emanation of retro-futuristic structures like chip-funkin prototypes Spacesynth, Minneapolis Sound and Electronica throughout the 70’s and 80’s, he reconstructed a LoFi identity. Check out his previous releases on Kanalattacke and Select Start Records.

Owen Meyers is a Canadian electronic music artist living in Barcelona, Spain. During his previous years in Montreal, Canada and Boston, USA, he has been involved with the three-piece laptop ensemble hiQloKey, performing live improvised electronic music, and the COLLISIONcollective, an experimental art show exhibiting invented new technologies and art forms. Currently, he is an active member in both the improvisation rave group Barcelona Bakalao and the tech-house project Circuit Flow & The Bird.

Dimitry Ghost is the head of Disconinjaz label, dj, musician and promoter from Moscow, Russia. He started as a net-audio deep-tech house dj, taking part in the famous Moscow internet radio Deepmix in 2004-2005. In april 2005 Dmitry and his friends founded Chipcult, the first russian community devoted to chiptunes and micromusic – starting a modern scene in Russia and organizing parties between Saint-Petersburg and Moscow. Since that time he has played a unique mixture of danceble 8bit chiptunes, micromusic, electropop, keygen music, video game music and disco. Dmitry’s mixes became a catchy password in the world of chipstyle music for a lot of people. In 2006 he lunched Disconinjaz net-label. In 2007 he moved to Barcelona and started expanding his projects on international ground supporting the local indie electronic scene. Dmitry’s current projects include dj performances in his unique style around the city, managing the label, participation in Barcelona Bakalao improvisation rave music group and his own avantgarde-minimalist production as Lonely Night Flighter.
