Zomby Returns In Pixel Vision

Dedication takes on a changed dance landscape

Still, if Dedication sticks with non-dance-heads, I suspect it'll have more to do with how stubbornly the things that sound alien wind up lodging in your head. It helps that he writes plainly stated piano themes that are still lush ("Haunted") and stately ("Basquiat"), and especially that he makes his screechy digital tones more luminous and friendly than ever, even when he's highlighting their harshness, as on "Digital Rain." It helps to be nostalgic for ancient video games—of course it does. But the next two years, it seems safe to say, will not provide dance fans with the kind of ruptures we've become re-accustomed to over the past few. Explosions are followed by retrenchments. If Zomby hasn't beaten the pack again, figure it matters less. And figure that maybe he has.
