Tennerz: Zo! feat. Erro & Phonte – We Are On The Move (Shur-I-kan Vocal Mix) (Z Records)
“Get ready, coz’ we are on the move…” Pretty much looks like it as a matter of fact. Although we’re talkin’ here of a revamp. The one of this uplifting gem which originally saw the light back in 2013 as a part of Zo!‘s ‘ManMade’ album. With the latter sharing the duties with long time collaborator Phonte. But also Eric Roberson aka Erro in charge of the vocal duties.
As for the (new) move, DJ/producer/keyboardist Shur-I-kan gives it an enlightening remix treatment on a moody cool jazzy funk tip.
We are on the move… Just what it says! So just get yourself ready to dance until the morning lights…

Also known as The Musical Architect or simply Zo!, the man is a definitive workaholic. This with no less than 8 albums to his credit since 2003 including his latest – ‘SkyBreak’ – that saw the light back in 2016. An album that includes ‘Lifelines’ featuring Dornik which Reel People eventually remixed on their Reel People Music label a few months later. With N’Dinga Gaba bringin’ it to a new dimension with his rework for Foliage Records two years after. Meanwhile ‘We Are On The Move’ which we welcomed in our Top 10 in November 2014 with remix courtesy of Shur-I-kan, initially appeared eighteen months before as a part of the Zo!‘s ‘ManMade’ album. The latter seeing him sharing the duties with Erro and Phonte.
As a musician, Zo! collaborated with an impressive amount of other artists. From Slum Village to Malik Alston. But also Platinum Pied Pipers and Sy Smith. Not to mention The Foreign Exchange. Eventually becoming their musical director and one of their regular producers.
Most recently, Zo! has expanded his musical repertoire to include film scoring. Thus completing full scores for two documentaries: ‘Black, White & Blue’ (2018) and the Northwestern University commissioned, ‘The Takeover’ (2018). While in production for another upcoming studio release, Zo! is also currently composing music. This for the newly-acquired IFC sketch-comedy series, ‘Sherman’s Showcase’, that should see the light in 2019).
