Against the Clock is a series on FACT TV where we give an artist 10 minutes in the studio and see what they come up with. Past episodes have featured xxxy, Thefft, KiNK, Sam Binga (twice), Artifact and Addison Groove.
Bristol up-and-comer Ziro broke through with last year’s brittle ‘Coded’. Speaking to FACT at the time, Ziro explained that he’s inspired by “those moments where a track drops and there’s an audible air of shock and interest from the dancefloor. It’s those simple, effective but obviously well though out devices — I’m always like ‘I wish I’d made that'”. It’s a quality that’s definitely present on his next single, a three-track EP for Manchester’s Fulcrum label that ups the violence factor – play it loud.
