Grammy and BRIT Award nominated Zoo Brazil, also known as John Andersson, has
released over 160 singles and 8 albums under various monikers. Throughout his career
John has steadily carved out a reputation for himself as one of dance music's most
innovative and respected producers and DJs. As a follow up to his last album "Please
Don't Panic" and the mix compilation "Songs For Clubsâ€ from last year, Zoo Brazil now
presents his brand new artist long player entitled "Any Moment Now".
John has seen much success as producer and songwriter with Kylie Minogueâ€™s hit "The One" for
her Grammy nominated 2007 album â€œXâ€. Zoo Brazilâ€™s 2010 artist album â€œPlease Donâ€™t Panicâ€
drew attention all over the world and harvested the hit singles â€œYou Can Have It Allâ€ and â€œThere
Is Hopeâ€; the latter was picked up for a Lâ€™OrÃ©al and Dermablend â€œGo Beyond The Coverâ€
commercial on Youtube where it became an instant success, leading to over 26 million views
(and counting) and various awards. Besides having produced music for HBO series like
â€œNip/Tuckâ€, MTV and countless other programs, 2012 also marked the year in which Zoo Brazil
was assigned to write three compositions for the opening ceremony of the London Olympic
Games. As a remixer he also worked for Lana Del Rey, Moby, Fatboy Slim, Rex The Dog,
James Holden, Pleasurekraft, Sebastien Leger, John Dahlback, Green Velvet, Human League
and many, many others.
Travelling across the world as a highly acclaimed DJ, Zoo Brazil performed in established clubs
including Ministry of Sound, Space and Pacha, and played all the major venues and festivals in
Australia, Europe, USA and South America. All these travels eventually gave John the
inspiration and motivation to begin working on a brand new artist album. What was most
important for John however was to deliver a high quality track list that would keep the release
interesting from start to finish.
When asked about the recording process during the sessions of â€œAny Moment Nowâ€, John said:
â€œFor this album I only worked with vintage gear and classic analogue synths that I played live
instead of programming them. It gives the entire structure of all songs a warm, human touch. Itâ€™s
still an electronic dance album, obviously, but I wanted to avoid big room melodies and vocals.
My goal was to turn â€œAny Moment Nowâ€ into a timeless piece of work. I hope that five, ten or
even fifteen years from now, the music is still as fresh, original and danceable as it is now; just
like an album I would listen to myself still. You just know that itâ€™s amazing music that engages
and inspires, up to this day. A good song is always a good song and the future will tell.â€
Just as with Zoo Brazilâ€™s previous album, John secured several collaborations with other artists.
On the opening track â€œGive Myselfâ€ we hear the vocals of Ursula Rucker, known from her singles
with Louie Vega, King Britt and Sander Kleinenberg. Vocalist Rasmus Kellerman, who also
featured on â€œThere Is Hopeâ€, joins forces again on â€œThe Dark Endâ€, while vocalist Philip (known
from the band The Mary Onettes) delivers his voice on â€œGlassâ€, â€œHeartâ€™s A Legendâ€, â€œJust A
Breath Awayâ€, â€œShoutâ€ and â€œFor Goodâ€. American house legend Roland Clark teamed up with
John for club track â€œThe Messageâ€.
â€œAny Moment Nowâ€ by Zoo Brazil is a massive album that flows all the way through, boasting a
powerful track list of well-produced electronic dance music that should be of strong interest to
every fan of the genre.
