Kilburn Park by Zero T & Onj
Last year Zero T teamed up with pianist Onj (Andre Louis) on what became an acclaimed conceptual album Kilburn. The project showcased a unique blend of bass-heavy music with soulful chord progressions.
Now the duo returns for a follow-up EP which surpasses expectations. Packed with downtempo versions, remixes as well as new music, this project is a worthy successor to last year’s praised album. Remixers include AfroForce (a.k.a. Afronaut & Mark Force of Bugz In The Attic), James Rudie and Kid Fonque and Jonny Miller, who morph Darkness into a super-deep House odyssey.
The EP also consists of three new Drum & Bass tracks: Blow (featuring Nottingham soul duo Melonyx), Love Thing (featuring the soothing voice of Mercy’s Cartel) and the darker sounding Killer Inside.
With this project Zero T & Onj “hope people hear the common thread of real soul throughout the EP, regardless of tempo”. Onj adds: “Kilburn Park seems like the obvious sequel to a story with yet more parts to it. The downtempo feel of Gone but Never Forgotten, which has personal significance to me, could be those thoughtful times we sit down and consider the world around us, and our place in it.”
