Time Zones - Vibe Shack EP
The debut record release from our friends in New Orleans, Mystery Zone Records.
"Time Zones is the dance music project of Dan Gentile and Jack Murphy. The two began making music together in 2014 while living in Austin, Texas. Their work is rooted in the appreciation of soulful house music and dollar bin disco singles.
The Vibe Shack EP wears its influences on its chipboard sleeve. Crackling litigation-worthy samples loop over an assembly of live (read: non-quantized) tracked instruments, including a Korg PolySix, Roland JX-3P, modular synthesizer, and a broken x0xb0x, giving each track that lively, human touch. Also included is a punchy Unknown FM remix of the title track. The tunes have been mastered hot by Benoit D at Perception Mastering for maximum dance floor impact.
Thoughtful and understated, the Vibe Shack EP combines witty sample-work, live instrumentation, and analog synthesis to create 4 sonic collages. By marrying 70’s soul and disco samples with more subtle classic house themes, live bass and keys, Time Zones’ take on a familiar palette manifests as fresh, inventive, and playful."
