Zenith: Nadir

In Greg Harrison’s compellingly reasonable docu-drama Groove, a fledgling DJ complains to Digweed that great vinyl is scarce in Fresno, CA. But that’s evidently false for Adam Mekalian and Mario Langone, who constitute Fresno’s trance duo Zenith:Nadir. The group creates amazingly mindless and hypnotic beats, examples, and grooves to ignite dancefloors in addition to ravers’ mental and physical state governments. Elevated on ’80s electro-pop just like the Treat, New Purchase, and Depeche Setting, Mekalian and Langone performed in cover rings and finally, after being presented by a shared friend, formed the choice clothing Polar. But their musical preferences soon evolved to add ambient, home, and hardcore. In 1995, they released their initial 12″ one on Vinyl fabric Republic, “My Odyessey,” which, afterwards that calendar year, was included on John Digweed’s Renaissance II. The “Supernaked” 12″ arrived on Oblivion in 1996, “Synfinity” on Dimentional Transfer in 1999, and “I REALLY LIKE the sensation” on Crush in 2001. In Apr of 2002, Zenith:Nadir released two 12″ singles of “Dance towards the Defeat” and their debut full-length, Great Stuff, on Dimentional Transfer Recordings. The record discovered the duo’s sound culminating in mind-altering trance, blending ambient, progressive home, and acid.
