“A Detroit underdog steps up.
Scott Zacharias is a well-kept secret in a city full of them (Detroit), but that may be starting to change. Many know him from No Way Back, the Motor City party series where, sometime around dawn in the chill-out room, following hours of mind-bending techno next door, he unspools psychedelic tapestries of disco, jazz, Italo and whatever else seems to suit the moment. He applies the same freewheeling style to The Fantasy, his edits duo with Interdimensional Transmissions founder BMG, whose choice of source material stretches from Chris & Cosey to The Fatback Band. Central to his appeal is his unpredictability: on any given night, he’s as capable of odd eclecticism as he is of dirty club jams. Usually you’ll get a mix of both.
This anything-goes approach reflects a cornerstone of his city’s musical tradition: freeform radio, the genre-hopping format embodied by figures like The Electrifying Mojo. It’s earned Zacharias an ever-growing cast of die-hard fans, from regular punters to the likes of L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli. RA.606, an off-the-cuff romp through the clubbier side of his sound, shows what the fuss is about.”
