Electro superstar Zombie Nation is a true veteran of the studio, having been generating gritty analog hits since his career-defining stadium anthem, “Kernkraft 400.” Next week, Florian Senfter will be releasing his fifth studio album, RGB, on Montreal’s legendary Turbo imprint. To mark the release, ZN stars in the first edition of Turbo’s new Studio Sessions video series, which shows Senfter hanging with studio pro Spaceman as he works the vintage Roland System 700 analog synth. Things get groovy once the track that gets going and the in-studio disco lights come on. Watch the video and read Zombie Nation’s breakdown of his own home studio set-up after the jump.

Turbo Recordings is offering a second set of remixes of Tiga/Zombie Nation’s Work, the most recent single from their Partys Over Earth LP. Check out the mindtrip of a video above for Torontonian’s Gingy & Bordello’s take on the track, due out February 21st along with remixes by The Advent & Spiriakos and Norman Nodge.

Turbo will be hosting a video contest for the tune, with more details to come on the label’s Facebook and Twitter next week. So start thinking about your entries. …MORE
This month, the Finnish production outfit Renaissance Man releases their debut album on Turbo Records. They both come from an architectural background, you can tell from listening to the record their jobs intertwine with writing their full length record. They’ve progressed so far from 2008 when they appeared in the ‘blog house’ generation, their outlook now is on more ‘serious’ production, and thinking outside of the box with a full length that stands next to the ever growing Turbo roster.
