I seriously wish I had the time to give this release the essay it deserves. To celebrate 100 releases, Turbo Recordings, led by its proud founder Tiga, released today the much-hyped ZZafrica remix EP that just about everyone in the Indie Dance world has been clamoring for. Featuring remixes by the likes of Light Year, Sound of Stereo, Clouds, Afrojack, and Gesaffelstein (who in some ways steals the show with his remix), the EP is unquestionably one of the biggest of the year.
“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,
ZZT, aka the side project of Zombie Nation and Tiga, delivered one of my favorite tunes of the year with their ZZafrica release. Absolute banger.
ZZT – ZZafrica (Original Mix)
The best remix of the EP falls to French hero of the moment Gesaffelstein. This remix alone generated half the hype for this EP. Busy P has already called it the best remix of the year.

Afrojack was a surprise inclusion on the EP, but his rework is a brilliant addition.
