ZO! & THE MUSICAL SUNSTORM!I have been a Zo! fan ever since I discovered his first instrumental debut "Elevation Release" at a local "mom & pop" record store around the way. Remember those? He uses a lot of live instrumentation in his production, which gives it that smooth vibe that we've all come to know and love. He is definitely in my Top 5 list for my favorite producers from Detroit. The dude is really nice on the boards, so if you are still sleeping have a nightmare and wake up!

Zo! is part of the Foreign Exchange movement, so if you catch them on tour he'll be on stage playing the keyboards. He is also signed to the Foreign Exchange label, which is where Yahzarah, Darien Brockington, Nicolay and Phonte call home. Nothing but good music is coming out of that camp. Zo! will be adding another hot joint to the F.E. movement on July 27th. It's called "Sunstorm" and the line-up of vocalists on this album is RIDICULOUS!

01. Greater Than The Sun feat. Phonte
02. Greatest Weapon Of All Time feat. Sy Smith
03. Say How You Feel feat. Carlitta Durand & Phonte
04. For Leslie
05. Be Your Man feat. Darien Brockington

Below is a clip of Zo! on the keyboards. Can you guess song he's playing??

For true music scholars it should be easy to figure out...
