Zombie Disco Squad are two young Djs from London (I heard 1 of them was born in Durban but moved to the U.K. as a wee babe, but can't reveal my source as it would appear as shameless name dropping), they are approaching the scene from such an acute angle, their music seems to cross various genre boundaries liberally and without passport every season. I guess it's house based rhythm that is stripped bare, fed with meaty miami bass while peppered with lashings of Baille Breaks and Tribal drums and vocals.
Their music has always kept me interested, I'm always keen to hear in which direction they have taken with every new song or remix of theirs I uncover. They have probably had the most staple track I've ever held onto in my sets (in an age where music isn't pasteurized and the interest expires before tracks are released), their remix of Kids On Vacation. That first break forever thrills me, and they show house music in it's true light since "House" has been a dirty word for so long. If I owned the "Kid's On Vacation" single on vinyl, it'd be ratty, warped and it'd hiss at you like an angry cobra every time the needle dropped.
We might someday see them on our shore's since their padre' Mowgli was here earlier this year, and would gladly
let them nosh my brain for evening.
This is some personal info from their agency's website:

Zombies say NO: new rave, breaks, blog house, dreadlocks, slow computers, bad mp3s, crap promos, writers block, rollerblades, mens cycling shorts, sandals, rain, bad design, bandwagon jumpers (suddenly like disco?), ryan air, nazis, cheeky promoters, skins, cheapskates."
And on some other unrelated Zombie news, try watch a 4 part 1 hour show called "Dead Set", to learn what would happen if Zombie Apocalypse broke out during an eviction night on Big Brother.
