THN059 >> THEODOR ZOX - PASTELS 1-4
      [28.06.2004 | CLEVER CRACKING CONCRETE MINIMAL PEARLS]

Theodor Zox age 26, was born and raised in Copenhagen Denmark, 
where he lives and works as a graphic designer. His love for 
music starts at a very early age, when his father, a disc 
jockey of the 70's, exposes him to Jazz, Funk, Disco, Dub and 
Kraftwerk. Theodor buys his first Computer and Keyboard in 94 
and immediately starts working on his first musical experiments. 
Later that year he hears Basic Channel and Detroit Minimalism 
on a local radio station for the first time,  for when he music-
wise found his true calling. From that point he dedicates most 
of his music making time in finding out what makes this music 
tick. Being a very discrete and perfectionist person, he spends 
all his spare time learning about and writing music for himself, 
and his close friends. Theodor is the sort of musician who can 
easily work for months on one single piece of music, being fully 
aware that the particular track will never get further exposure, 
because he’s hardly satisfied with the result. From 1998 - 2002 
he lost all interest in exposing his music to other people, to 
spend all his time exploring and learning new tools and tech
-niques. In late 2002, with the birth of his son, Zox finds new 
inspiration in music – the most productive period of his music 
making starts.

Musicwise Theodor now settled in the deeper end of Techno & House 
minimalism, where harmony, texture and propulsive rhythms are the 
most important ingredients. Therefore the “Pastels 1-4” EP on 
Thinner is a prime example of a unique and modern approach to 
Minimalism, with new techniques and a very clean sound. Theodor 
manages to spice up his Minimal House outlets with sharp and 
concrete hisses, pops and bypassing pads. Zox effects a feeling 
that every oh-so-little sound is truly defined. 

The four track EP starts with “Oker Motion”, synth pads drip-
ping from the ceiling that get framed in by unordinary bass-
lines and tactical beat programming. “B.Script” is a dry and 
clean rocker - edited on every end with funky basslines and 
groovey stabs. A groover that makes your feet tap immediately. 
Zox doesn’t need a delay hideout and also doesn’t deorientate 
in wide hallrooms. His sound is very concentrated and can be 
fairly easy described being clever. “Deep Fog” is even more 
full with dry scatterplots and waving basslines. Smooth pads 
float by like clouds in the background. The fourth cut “Dawn 
In Blue” reflects Theodor’s  ambient origins with skillful 
floating pads. The glassy bassline and very versatile playful 
elements make this song a secure hit for warmer days. Theodor 
Zox has releases upcoming on various other established labels, 
so you should take notice of him again shotly.
