Turbo Recording’s 100th release + ZZT – ZZafrika (Marseille Remix)
100 years ago i had a dream: release music I love, with pro graphics, without going bankrupt. 100 12-inches later, Turbo stands high on the rubble of crumbled empires: Mo’Wax, Factory, EMI all dead in our wake…. we will never give up the fight: music we love, dressed for success, format-democratic, NEVER going bankrupt. Climbing to the stars, 300 copies at a time. it’s just us and Jack White, motherfuckers… bring on the next 100. See you in 2017.
Love from Montreal,
Over the last 13 years Turbo Recordings have dropped out 100 releases. Pretty incredible, huh? The 100th release comes in the shape of ZZT’s (the love-child of Tiga and Zombie Nation) track “ZZafrika”. Gesaffelstein works the techno vibes, Julio Bashmore drops a melodic remix, and Proxy protegé Marseille supplies the package with some raw bleeps from Russia. All in all, pretty darned good. The ZZT remixes are available on Beatport.
“What is that box above?” you shout…. In fact, it’s a 180-gram triple-vinyl box set which includes a code for Turbo Century, a retrospective compilation of the label’s best music from it’s first 100 releases. Wow.
