Zombie Disco Squad - Brains

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on May 29, 2012


The wait is finally over - Brains is here! Get ready for 9 tracks of absolutely smashing Zombie house as only Nat Self can make it. From smash singles 'Righteous Sound' and 'Twerk' to new bombs such as 'Be Down' and of course title track 'Brains', our only LP of 2012 is a varied collection of bouncing grooves and killer hooks peppered with a landslide of bass.

Whether you're an old fan or just new to that Zombie Disco sound: 'Brains' will set the mood for any summer party this year (and a couple to come). Check it out now on Beatport, or listen to the teaser mix on Soundcloud!



DJ Sneak – Respect to Zombie Disco Squad this is a brilliant masterpiece of musical knowledge, full support and i'm dedicating a whole Cd in my book to them as i will be playing most of these tracks. Serious Love.

Dyed Soundorom – Outstanding album! Be Down and Just Can’t are my new favs here

Davide Squillace – some really good stuff on here!

Roman Flugel – Yep, ready to get some sunburn with this hot release. Even in

Riva Starr – Its very rare to find an album where all the tracks are good... and this

Zombie Disco Squad - Twerk feat. DJ Funk

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on May 14, 2012

Here it is.  The second single from Zombie Disco Squad is out today - a massive teaser for the debut album Brains which is out at the end of may.  Watch this space!

Twerk feat. Dj Funk is all claps and low slung bass, bouncing through old school vocal snaps and a monster of a bassline. Showcasing the darker side of Brains, it's dancefloor catnip for those who like to get down and dirty, whilst  'Ibiza Hooligan' employs woozy synths and a subtly menacing chord progression, building to a massive break before snapping back into its percussive groove.  Start your monday off with a boom.

Out now on Beatport!



Erol Alkan - Like the hooligan best, thanks!

Diplo - love it man

David Squillace -  Another good piece around

Justin Martin - Twerk is the JAM!!!!!!!! this shit kills the club:)

Round Table Knights - Sweeeet! Cant wait for the LP

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Apr 23, 2012

Our fiftieth release comes courtesy of Gene Siewing, who has been making a name for himself with releases like last year's brilliant You're Not A DJ EP.

Gene's debut EP on Made To Play is a powerhouse of funky, deft guitar licks and pounding grooves. 'House Shoez' shows off his knack for combining tongue-in-cheek vocals with a seriously jacking sound. The EP will be out the 23rd, exclusively on Beatport. Celebrate our 50th with us!

Zombie Disco Squad - Righteous Sound

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Mar 19, 2012

It's here - the first single of Zombie Disco Squad's debut LP on Made To Play!  A guaranteed peak-time weapon with one of the biggest hooks we have released yet, 'Righteous Sound' is a stomping, infectious track featuring the rich vocals of soul star Omar over the percussive groove you've come to expect from Zombie Disco Squad.  In addition to the dub and acapella, Jesse Rose's edit adds even more oomph to the package, streamlining the original's catchiness into a no-nonsense partystarter.

Available today exlusively from Beatport!

Jesse Rose and Oliver $ join forces for a unique mixtape, free to download for all our friends and family.

Be sure to check out the recent interview on ResidentAdvisor as well. Enjoy the tape!


Filtertypen - On The Streets

Posted by Laura Dambuleff on Feb 29, 2012

Hi guys, hope you are ready for our second release of the year! 

Filtertypen are an exciting house outfit from Hannover that heavily bring the funk in their floorfilling productions, and we are proud to have them debut on Made To Play.

Title track ‘On The Streets’ is a slowly building monster, plodding along carefully triggered boom-bap vocal samples and laidback keys that belie its ability to make you groove along. It reminds mostly of a certain early 90’s hip-hop sensibility, fusing classic elements of rhythmic funk and emotive soul with an in-your-face aesthetic that promises nothing but good vibes on the dance floor. On the flip side, ‘Wrong Track’ fires straight into organ-heavy house territory, heavily bending the warm sounds of a Hammond B3 into a tongue-in cheek build which drops into dance floor mayhem. This EP  promises nothing but a very warm 2012 for the soulful German duo. Grab it now, exclusively on Beatport!


Jimpster - 4/5 On The Streets is sounding just lovely!

Christian Martin - 4/5 Sick bassline in Wrong Track!

Sinden - 4/5 Wrong Track for me, dope!

Catz N Dogz - 5/5 Amazing! On the streets is great!!

Nick Catchdubs - 4/5 Both tracks muy groovy!

Hannah Holland - 4/5 On The Streets very Jesse Rose! Nice jackin' happy music
