Zomboy in Concert
British bassmaster Zomboy named his 2017 release Rott N' Roll — and for very good reason. The EP hits you with four blasts of disorienting dubstep steeped in an aggressive energy more at home in the mosh pit than the dance tent, while exuding a sense of dramatic grandeur tailor-made for arenas.
With his Rott N' Roll tour of large concert halls, Zomboy has engineered nothing less than an all-out sensory assault, complete with a retina-frying light show, psychedelic big-screen visuals, and skeleton-themed animations that morph and mutate faster than your brain can process them. But arguably the most transfixing sight is Zomboy himself, who can be seen enthusiastically jumping, fist-pumping, and shouting along to his tracks from behind the decks as if he were seriously contemplating a stage-dive into the crowd below.
Born in the small English town of Penzance, Joshua Mellody cut his teeth playing in rock, punk, and metal bands before moving to London to study sound engineering in the early 2010s. While living there, his flatmates initiated him into the world of EDM, and Mellody developed a particular affinity for the harsh, tougher-than-metal dubstep of Skrillex.
Adopting the name Zomboy while playing the Xbox zombie game Left 4 Dead, Mellody released his first EP, Game Time, through London label Never Say Die Records in 2011. He swiftly became one of the buzziest names in U.K. bass music.
Within a year, he was making his U.S. debut at Las Vegas' Electric Daisy Carnival. Meanwhile, tracks like the dancehall-damaged "Nuclear (Hands Up)" and the earthquaking get-your-hands-up directive "Like a Bitch" vaulted him to the upper reaches of the Billboard Dance charts and festival lineups. His induction into EDM's elite inner circle was confirmed in 2016, when the ubiquitous Chainsmokers commissioned Zomboy to deliver the absolutely bonkers official remix of their chilled smash single "Don't Let Me Down."
