Since as back as 2004, the world of electronic music has barely known a force as unstoppable as Federico Ágreda Álvarez, the man behind the mask of Zardonic which, in the words of Ryan J. Downey (Billboard / MTV / Alternative Press), is “increasingly as ubiquitous in the hard EDM and heavy metal underground as the mask worn by deadmau5”.
From constant touring in 37 countries to hundreds of releases, millions of YouTube views, multiple awards, official remixes for household names as Bullet For My Valentine and Nine Inch Nails, all of this while topping Beatport, Amazon Germany and Tower Records Japan Charts, the Venezuelan army of one strikes back with “Become”, his second record with Entertainment One Music, sharing the roster with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang Clan, Rex Brown (Pantera), Ace Frehley (KISS), Zakk Wylde (Ozzy Osbourne), Wacka Flocka Flame, The Game, DJ Drama, and The Bloody Beetroots, to name a few.
“Become” is already poised to reach the German Alternative Charts, with a total of 11 tracks including collaborations with The Qemists, Celldweller, Coppa, Shining, American Grim, Malke and A.P.E. For this particular mailout, Zardonic and Entertainment One Music have teamed up with Cygnus Music to send four handpicked tracks from the record as a DJ sampler catered to the Drum & Bass scene. The playlist includes “Takeover” with The Qemists, already featured in long running German zine Sonic Seducer and garnering over 10.000 plays on the day of its release on YouTube, as well as the heart pounding “Children Of Tomorrow” with legendary award winning MC, lyricist and producer Marvin Hay aka Coppa, “Before The Dawn” featuring godfather of Electronic rock Celldweller, and his own Rave anthem titled “Follow The Light” which opened his set at the recent VK Fest in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
From all of our team, we are immensely proud to present you this advance DJ sampler, as we are sure these tracks will find a fixed place in your sets for many months to come.
