Irish Drum & Bass veteran Zero T returns to Amsterdam imprint The North Quarter with his Former Self EP. Following up from his ambitious multi-genre project Baby Grand, Zero T now strips things down to a focused five-track project that manoeuvres through a broad range of styles within Drum & Bass. From his Soulful reinterpretation of Mango x MathMan's Lonely Night to the dubbed out weight of Clash - with Bristol-based rising producer Myth - this is a well balanced EP that displays Zero T's expansive vision and is a testimony to his growth as a producer and technician. I had a number of aims with my second EP for The North Quarter Zero T explains. While my first release 'Baby Grand' was an opportunity to explore working in different styles of music and utilising live instrumentation, I wanted this second release to be stripped back to basics: five Drum & Bass tracks that cover the spectrum of what I like within this music. There's two vocal tunes in the classic 'Liquid' style, one tune that could easily be described as Jump Up, a Dub/Jungle in fluenced track with Myth and finally what I would call a listening track; something not necessarily designed for DJs/clubs. If someone wants to know what I stand for, then this release says it all."
