A new concept in ZTT compilations, Zambient One draws from the catalogues of the most celebrated acts on the label (Art Of Noise, Propaganda, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, 808 State) but selects some rather different remixes to keep things interesting and add a sophisticated twist. Sprinkle on some laid back dancefloor delights, slinky selections by the likes of Hoodlum Priest, Instinct, Novecento and L.a.z.y. and leaven with a handful of classics from the Stiff Records archive - Tracey Ullman's wonderful reading of The Waitresses I Know What Boys Like, a 21st century re-boot of Jona Lewie's Always Find Me In the Kitchen At Parties and Mint Juleps' exalted take on Neil Young's Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Then pick up the 6am Ambient Mix of Kirsty MacColl's hit single Walking Down Madison and pause for thought while Heights Of Abraham cause temporal stasis (or make time stand still, if you prefer) with their blissful version of Fred Neil's Dolphins. In short, Zambient One is Zang Tuum Tumb s very personal collection of modern day lullabies (and wake-up calls). The soundtrack to an imaginary road movie that heads off from Sarm Studios in West London on a torrential Friday night and arrives at the burning embers of Studios Mediterraneo in Ibiza just in time for sunrise on Sunday. It's a highly involving trip; one that will leave you refreshed and relaxed, ready to hit the bar - and wanting to experience it all over again.
