MODZ (Dustin Zahn & Material Object) – Mid Life Vices EP
Available now on digital and where all Vinyl is sold.


A1. MODZ – Signals
B1. MODZ – Promotion of Vice

D1. MODZ – Prevention of Virtue


MODZ is the highly anticipated collaboration between Dustin Zahn of Minneapolis’ Enemy Records and Berlin-based producer Material Object, fresh from a more subdued collaboration with Pete Namlook. SIGNALS begins in dark territory with the pulse of an alien telegraph, but after a minute of tension the track screeches into collision with with a 10-ton kick. Attentive sound design and a growing, hypnotic pulse slowly craft a detailed environment fit for the largest of systems. PROMOTION OF VICE jumps straight into its main rhythm, proceeding with expertly placed embellishments, ebbing the track in and out of intensities and moody environments. PREVENTION OF VIRTUE picks up the pace and expands on some of VICE’S themes, opening the track to a wider sound and an equally wide appeal for the dance floor.

Records will also be available locally and exclusively at Mount Analog Record Store. Each vinyl purchase will include a limited edition “MODZ” t-shirt. Available while supplies last. Mount Analog is located at 5906 1/2 N. Figueroa St, Highland Park, CA 90042.
