Revealed: new album title and cover art

Here’s the official first look at the cover for my new album!  As you can tell from the giant letters, the release is called Down to Dusk: Rural Sounds Volume 2. The cover art is by Kenji Nakayama, who also provided the art for Rural Sounds Volume 1, and the design is by Amy Pryor-Swayne who designed the cover for Volume 1 as well. By the way if you’re on the mailing list you may have already seen this image, and previewed the first single from the album, which is called “Getaway.”  Sign up below if you want to hear it!

Escape for Free

Updates on the new album are coming soon. In the meantime, here’s a slight throwback with some freeness thrown in. In 2011, I produced a deep house single called Escapism parts 1 and 2, and released it via Stilnovo Music. The label has now made it available for download – for a limited time – for free. Well, technically, it’s “name your own price,” but I imagine you’ll want to get it for nothing if you can. You can get it right here: Zane Tate -Escapism So click away if you like deep house music! And feel free to let me know on my Facebook page if you do pick it...

Newness is on the way

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been seven years since I released Boom Bap Sunrise. But the followup is on the way. More news to follow soon…

Groove Salad Volume 2 features Zane Tate

Groove Salad Volume 2 is out now, and it features my song, “The Last Resort” along with some other great downtempo music. Soma FM, “a listener-supported, commercial-free internet-only radio station,” and probably my favorite online radio station, broadcasts a number of genre-driven channels, one of which is Groove Salad. Groove Salad plays mostly instrumental downtempo, groove-oriented ambient, and trip hop music (Nightmares on Wax, St. Germain, Boards Of Canada), and it’s one of the largest online broadcasters of this style. Since Soma FM is commercial-free, the station relies on listener support in order to stay online. When you donate $40 you can get a copy of the Groove Salad Volume 2 compilation on CD, which features a tasty selection of songs from the Groove Salad playlist. I’m a big fan of Soma FM, and Groove Salad in particular, so I’m honored and excited that my song “The Last Resort” was included on the album. Soma FM has the full playlist, and more details on how you can get the CD, on its website...
