ZIYAD "Compost Regrowth" C35 (Hear Now Records)

Formerly “Noah’s Heark”, Pakistan’s Ziyad Habib conjures up some pretty dynamic electronica, ranging from peaceful synth soundscapes to outright dancefloor jamz. The layers and production are tight as all get-out and the beats, when employed, hit hard, as do the sparse vocals of Lady Midnight. Probably too psychedelic/experimental for mainstream radio, this album ought garner some serious attention for anyone who enjoys dancy electronica mixed with r&b & footwork.
