Playing Time: Over 2 hours

Zang Tuum Tumb, the Big Beat Colossus and a battalion of Fairlights and Synclaviers, equipped with light pens and 8-inch floppy disc drives, return to present the sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed Art of the 12”, which was released one year ago. In fact this is the first ever ZTT compilation to run to a second volume.

Like its predecessor it explores the ZTT aesthetic and the atmosphere of fearless experimentation at Sarm Studios – where almost every track was recorded – as applied to 12” singles and remixes.

Once again, it’s a treasure trove for fans of the label and its biggest acts (Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Propaganda, Art of Noise , 808 State…), as it contains some of their rarest and most accomplished remixes. And in addition we’ve spiced things up by featuring some sterling production and remix work by Trevor Horn and members of Art of Noise for Paul McCartney, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Scritti Politti and Mint Juleps.

Celebrations / revelations / extrapolations of the extended remix do not come any better than this. ‘Why quit now?’
