Bongos Bleeps & Basslines
Zero dB

Released: 19 Aug 2022

Label: Tru Thoughts

zero dB’s debut artist album Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines, now released on Tru Thoughts, is a slamming musical tour de force of Latin-infused, UK dance music, with elements of house and hip hop, ably assisted by vocalist Heidi Vogel, New Orleans native Voice and Pase Rock, sometime member of Five Deez and regular Spank Rock collaborator.

“A PomBa Girou” combines disorientating echo with fat electronic bass stylings. Title track “Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines” as the name suggests, harnesses the music’s rhythmic drive to earth-rumbling bass noises, alongside drums and synth bleeps, while “Know What I’m Sayin’?” heads in a more hip hop-influenced direction.

zero dB are known for their unique blend of hard jazz, electro, Latin, hip hop and house, laced with heavy basslines. Fluid Ounce released their early 12″s, including ‘Party Girl’ and a compilation album of their remixes, ‘Reconstruction’. zero dB later signed to Ninja Tune and released ‘Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines’ in Summer 2006.
