Zvrra: The ‘Wednesday Alternative’ Mix
Chicago-based producer Zvrra is an advocate of techno in its many forms.
Crediting the 2003 video game Midnight Club 2 as the starting point for her love of the genre, it’s since this point she’s been dreaming up her own genre-hopping productions that have ranged from industrial to tribal, ambient and house, showcasing her meticulous approach to sound and a distinct sense of texture and atmosphere.
Alongside producing and DJing, she also works in the world of video game development, a field that, when it comes to style and concepts, has continued to feed into her musical output including releases for Rare Type and Avian.
Hot on the heels of her debut LP Bizarroland, she he gets us over the midweek hump, taking us on a wild, pacy ride through diverse shades of techno. Buckle up!
Please introduce yourself… Who are you, where are you and what are you
My name is Zvrra, I’m based in the Chicago, Illinois Area and I’m a music producer and indie game developer.
What does your music sound like? Can you draw what you think it sounds like for us (an image from the old internet is acceptable)?
It sounds like the final boss of RTYPE, the corridors of Dead Space 2 and the atmosphere of No Man’s Sky.
