The US Grammy and BRIT Award award nominated Zoo Brazil also know as John Andersson has been producing and writing music since early age, and has released over 140 singles and 8 albums under a variety of 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, with his work appearing on some of the best labels in the world, from Get Physical Music, Toolroom, Ministry of Sound, Size, Great Stuff, Dessous and Renaissance, to Spinnin, Turbo, Sci/Tec, Defected, Strictly Rhythm, Systematic, Hed Kandi, Yoshitoshi, Blackhole label, Wall of Sounds, and Armada Music to name but a few.
His music has also been featured on such major labels as EMI, Warner Music, Universal Music, Sony and Virgin. As a producer and song writer, John has seen huge success in the world of pop music having co written Kylie Minogue’s hit song "The One" featured on her 2007 album “X”.
Zoo Brazil continues to work with and remix some of music’s most influential artists including, Lana Del Ray [Umusic], Moby [Mute], Inflames (Sony), Iamamiwhoami (Cooperative Music), Steve Angelo (Size), Zombie Nation (Turbo) Tiesto [Blackhole], Fatboy Slim [Skint/Astralwerks], Human League [Virgin], Dannii Minogue [FFRR], and Nitin Sawhney [V2], as well as a host of the most respected and credible 'underground' dance acts such as James Holden [Border Community], Ian Pooley [V2/Ministry Of Sound], Rex the Dog [Hundehaus], Blaze [Slip N Slide], Dirty Vegas [Credence/EMI], Lo Fidelity Allstars [Skint/Astralwerks], Zoot Woman/Stuart Price [Madonna's producer] [Wall of Sound/EMI], and many more.
This new release pits two prestigious forces together as Zoo Brazil enters the family fold of Tiefschwarz’s Souvenir imprint. This release fuses John’s evident ear for both the underground and overground as EP opener “Lower” exemplifies as it teeters the perfect balance on the edge of both audiences. “Every Little Thing” dives a little deeper with more minimal flourishes, deep reverb and syncopated bleeps. Closing off the EP is “Do You Really” - a driving, malevolent pursuit built for building perfect peak time sets. Yet another example of Zoo Brazil’s versatile production style, these weapons could easily smash a big room to pieces yet equally be sneaked into a deeper, headier set
