ZE is an eclectic, free-spirited producer/artist whose works
are epitomized with tough beats and smooth, soulful textures mixed with clever word play,
wit, and a thought provoking, definitive message. Having toured with national acts and
worked in several recordings studios, Ze is one third of the group Fleshwound and the
founding member of KohZe projects. He produces in a wide range of styles, not limited to
soul, house, hip hop, and acid jazz. Ze strongly believes in the power of music to change
things, speaking directly in a language all his listeners can feel a language called

His debut release on the Nylon Trax label was the
Hello World EP, which was critically well-received and
supported by the likes of Graeme Park, Abicah Soul, Doc Link, Mousse T. and Claudio
Coccoluto. This latest single, the Let's Go Higher
, expands on the previous EP's manifesto and launches Ze's
sound further into uncharted waters. Its two tracks, "Let's
" and "Higher," combine mid-tempo house
music with a bit of techno-soul for a fascinating and unique late night sound. Ze is
assisted by singers E.D. Body andAutum
to add to the already spicy flavor, with vocal lines reminiscent at
times of Motown as well as the call-and-response jazz chants from old Sun Ra records. It's
a special sound, certainly deserving of attention.

Nylon Trax own maverick DJ/producer Jaymz Nylon is on hand to
remix and remodel both tracks into his patented 'afro-tech' style. Jaymz's mix of "Let's
Go" leans on the low end, with a solid kick and ultra-warm bass hugging the dreamy synths
and piano while the vocals amble overhead. Next, Jaymz turns in a solid re-work of
"Higher" that slinks and slides along a sultry rhythm track, with the vocals riding the
insistent bass line motif. Proper after-hours appeal here, and ready for the more
distinctive DJ sets out there.

Marques Wyatt - "Tight."
Abicah Soul - "The Afro Tech remix is nice."
Mauricio Aviles (Movido) - "It's all about the original 'Lets
Go' for me. The track recalls a kinda of deep Arthur Russell vibe. Dope!"
Joey Silvero (Distant People) - "Cool tension and nice,
stripped back feel to 'Higher.'"
Edground (Brazilian Soul Crew) - "Sensational release. I'll
play this a lot."
Nick Holder - "Dope!"
Joan Ribas (Ibiza Soulstice Music) - "Love it!"
Red Rack'em - "The Jamz Nylon remix of 'Higher' is dope."
Thomas Pudell (Black Alley) - "'Let's Go' really touches the
Michael Fossati (Spirit Of House) - "An eclectic release
taking you on a blissful journey to previously unexplored deep house territory."
Al Bradley (3am Recordings) - "Of the two originals, 'Let's
Go' gets the nod from me; retro sounding vox (in a cool way) and the overall vibe make
this the one. Both remixes are cool, but the 'Higher' remix is smart. Original use of bass
percussion ace."
