Read our recent interview with Justin Hasting of Zoogma

Live electronic quartet Zoogma has been busy over the past year. While maintaining a busy tour schedule, the band has been steadily working on their new concept record, A Future in Blue. The new record combines their Mississippi/Memphis blues roots with their unique electronica sound to bring listeners their own refreshing brand of “Future-Blues”.

The first single, “What It Is”, mixes Leslie-driven guitar and classic 70’s-era horns, with catchy vintage-blues samples that mesh with the funky, futuristic electronic sound Zoogma delivers both live and in the studio. Listen to the new single, streaming below.

Zoogma is a live electronic band based in Nashville, TN. Since 2010, Zoogma has been blending genres into a musical experience that has been called "refreshingly original, yet steeped in dance music tradition".  The band is no stranger to the studio or touring either. With two full studio albums, a live compilation album, a slew of remixes, and the most recent release of their chart topping New Era EP, as well as a handful of national headline tours under their belt, Zoogma has carved out an incredibly loyal fanbase. The band's next record, A Future in Blue, is due out early 2017.

Chark began expressing his interest in music early on as a member of the Birmingham Boys Choir. In his early teens, he began to gravitate towards the punk and metal underground, which would quickly encourage him to break in his own musical chops in a series of hopeful high school garage bands, as a lead vocalist, trying to find his place in the music world. His first forays into electronic music came through classic house channels, like Justice and Crookers, but the first time he heard a dubstep track by Distance, he knew he wanted to recreate that weird, wompy feeling it gave him. Chark began DJing in 2011 at local venues, with an incredibly supportive response from the community, and has never looked back.
