One debut follows another: Next up on Stil vor Talent Zoo Brazil and Anthony Middleton’s 'Good Times' combines the result of a longstanding friendship and their first incursion on the label while delivering a true dancefloor anthem.
Anthony Middleton kick started his career DJing in iconic Marbella clubs and refining production skills at a pioneering UK music technology school in the mid-90s. His musical journey led him to the vibrant dance music scene in London. Meanwhile, Zoo Brazil, also known as John Andersson, earned Grammy and Brit Awards nominations, solidifying his reputation as an innovative and respected figure in dance music.
Guided by a shared affinity for analogue exploration, the duo employed an arsenal of vintage and modern gear, including the Vintage ARP 2600, Moog Model D, SSL AWS 900+se Console, and more. The resulting composition, “Good Times,” has seamlessly woven haunting melancholy into an irresistibly groovy symphony.
As a testament to its prowess, the track has been a closely guarded secret weapon in the DJ sets of both Zoo Brazil and Anthony for over a year. The mindset behind its creation was one of spontaneity, a deliberate choice to let creativity flow unhindered. “Good Times” stands as an authentic reflection of their musical synergy, inviting listeners into a realm where friendship and innovation harmoniously converge.
