Primate is the fourth album from Zubzub, one of the UK's top live,
psychedelic dance acts which features former members of space-rock legends, Ozric Tentacles. It is released on
Zubzub's own, newly-formed record label, Monkeyface Records.
As with their previous releases, Primate
is a real smorgasboard of dance genres, from thumping beats and manic
synths to moments of blissed out lushness, all with a healthy dose of pure
psychedelia. The band's unique style is brought ever closer to the listener,
taking them on a journey through highly detailed soundscapes, with strong
production standards complimenting the live musicianship on display.
This is their most accessible album to date
and has been filling dancefloors and attracting fans all across the globe.
The Zubzub sound incorporates an epic
musical feel, complex programming, deliciously-groovy dance rhythms and
bass-lines all infused with live musicianship. They seamlessly blend an
eclectic variety of styles and genres; trance, drum and bass, techno, breaks
and dub all feature and are tinged with pure psychedelia. Also in the mix is a
distinct taste for ethnic instruments and influences.
The band have played hundreds of gigs, with multiple appearances at the Glastonbury and Glade festivals, along with headline
appearances at the likes of Off the Tracks, Solfest, Sunrise, Waveform,
Offworld, Antiworld, Eden, Wickerman and Knockengorroch to name just a few.
ZUBZUB have also played at the renowned Brixton Academy and
have performed alongside some of the best-known names in electronica including;
The Orb, Eat Static, System 7, Banco De Gaia, Dreadzone and Shpongle. They also
regularly appear with the foremost names in UK club nights and have ventured in
to Europe playing from Amsterdam to Budapest.
