The digital music veterans known as Zenith Horizon have released their latest EP record, “Colour Is Key.” The record is composed of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 35 minutes, making it more of a brief full-length album than merely an extended-play release. It has been published on the Inertech Music Group independent record label. Characterized by intuitive and expert songwriting, old-school electronica effects, and a spaciousness not to be found easily in today’s burgeoning EDM music market, “Colour Is Key” is an album for fans of digital music who haven’t been excited about a modern release for far too long.
Zenith Horizon cite as main artistic influences Orbital, the Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, the Orb, and the Prodigy, all of whom are some of the digital sound’s most seminal innovators. Certain to please longtime listeners of the genre, “Colour Is Key” has all of the slick, futuristic, and shadowy undertones which first popularized the underground digital scene in the early 1990s. Zenith Horizon have pared this style down to its core components, as well, making “Colour Is Key” a new and contemporary collection of music in a vein not readily available from other digital composers.
Asked to describe any message their new EP might have for fans and new listeners, Zenith Horizon write, “The overall message is to have something to engage with, to listen to, to relax and unwind with, or maybe have a skank out in your back garden or a field with some friends whilst watching a sunset / sunrise. :-D”
Zenith Horizon’s official bio reveals them as Al Dixon and Kev Salisbury, two DJs from the original house music subculture in the United Kingdom. Each performed opposite the other for many years in the DJ, house music and rave subcultures. Now in their thirties, Dixon and Salisbury have banded together as Zenith Horizon to produce modern variations of the original sound that started it all.
