AnimalZOO is a side project of one of our favourite dance hippies, Lanny May. Lanny has been working on some interesting things throughout his musical career. He releases music as Lanny May, is running his own Maripoza label, recently released an album with his band The Hypnotic Lights and makes name as a DJ. Today, he drops an EP as AnimalZOO with us.
'All Together' is an adventurous, handcrafted EP that's crossing many electronic genres. All tracks have a specific Lanny May sound, although this release seems more daring, experimental, or just showing his versatility as a producer. All tracks and the EP as a whole tell a story. Is it about the love for music, girls, or just about stuff like you and me being together and having a good time. Together with the release comes a jazzy Applescal remix of the track 'Flower Setup'.

Neat idea for an album (comprised of 1-minute mini-songs) which showcases quickly but elegantly the talents of the artists contained here. It's also for a good cause, plus introduced me to several artists who are new to me, but who I can already tell I will enjoy further by checking out their respective other releases. Jim Payne
