Producer and multi-instrumentalist ZOiD has been zoiding away deep in the underground trenches of the Irish electronic music scene since the late 90s, but several releases have brought him more to the surface in 2022, along with his robot ZIMMY.
First his own label Zoitrax released his 3rd album “ZONGS”, featuring collaborations with 8 different vocalists, on digital and CD formats in April.
Then Irish electronic label Front End Synthetics released his Vera EP on 13th May.
Next up he's releasing two collaborations with Irish avant-pop queen Meljoann. The tracks also feature Cora-Venus Lunny leading a String Quartet, for a sci-fi-electronic pop experiment. Early support from Dan Hegarty on 2FM, Peter Curtin on 2XM and Cian O Ciabhain's An Taobh Tuathail show on RTEnaG.
His album "Internal Space Element" including these singles and 7 other tracks is out on 31st March on Zoitrax. The Irish Times called it "Invigorating and Inventive". It has been featured on Lyric FM and RTERnaG's An Taobh Tuathail.
In June 2022 his first proper vinyl release came out via Berlin-based US techno innovator Dan Curtin's label Metamorphic Records. This label has been at the forefront of techno since 1998, releasing the first records by producers such as Titonton Duvante and Morgan Geist. The record is called Dexaphonic EP and features 2 ZOiD tracks, a Dan Curtin remix and a John Tejada remix.
In 2023 his second 12" will come out via Irish label Winthorpe Electronics.
ZOiD’s music has been described by the Sunday Tribune as “either the future of jazz or the end of jazz as we know it” and as “wonderful future-bop realms” by The Irish Times.
