"The collective is an evolving outfit, and the meeting point of improvisation and dance music." - Worldwide FM
Ziggy Zeitgeist has become a staple of the Australian Music scene. Touring and recording with Melbourne Nu-Soul/ future-jazz collective, ‘30/70’ has enabled Zeitgeist to forge new frontiers in improvisation and drum-set application. He has since stepped up to the role of bandleader in the debut self-titled album Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange.
Ziggy’s music has already been championed across the breadth of the jazz and dance world, with support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Kamaal Williams, Byron the Aquarius and Alexander Nut just to name a few.
Growing up in Australia, with no real club culture in sight, Ziggy’s formative years were at the ‘bush doof’ – an outback rave where speakers were driven to remote lands and dance music would blast from the wee hours in the morning to the wee hours at night.
This is what Ziggy describes as the playground of Australian Electronic Music. “This is our culture of electronic music. It’s about exploring the spectrum of consciousness and a connection with ourselves, one another and the land.”
Z*F*E*X is the synthesis of dance music in human form. A live band experience humanizing the extended DJ set. Heavily influenced by club culture and transcendent psychedelic expériences – Z*F*E*X is a continuous odyssey of sound, where synths intertwine with flutes, Jazz drums are played with the raw energy of classic broken beat records, and natures call and the response is mimicked in musical form.
