Zombie Disco Squad's... Plat Du Jour

It occured to me that ZDS were big when I found a record sleeve for this record mislaid at Mondo. What a coincidink!

I used to travel, paint, steal and spin with Lucas Hunter back in the glory years of Sheffield. Yes indeed; when the Arctics were mere chimps, Gatecrasher was keeping the KetaGeeks entertained and the best parties took place in an ice-rink, Luke and I were trying to carve out our likenesses in the Sheffield Rushmore hall-of-fame.

Good times were had, but names were not made. Luke slipped down the M1 to London, worked really hard for nothing for ages, got some residencies here and there and blew up. I bounced to Barna, homeboy to Berlin. We may have deviated in musical paths, but I still consider Luke and Nathanial Self, as Zombie Disco Squad, to be true leaders of a tremendous throwdown.

I put the Plat du Jour questions to Lucas for the benefit of our loyal readership.

1. What's your current favourite record?

There is a shedload, but at the moment I am loving Congaloid by Solo, its on the flip of our Dirtybird release. Solo is king of the grooves, proper dance music.

2. What is the ultimate end-of-night track?

It used to be Dont you forget about me but I doubt I could get away with that shit right now. That track had people on the tables! Nowadays I favour Be by Laidback Luke.

3. Which artist gets ultimate ZDS respect right now?

Franky Rizardo, man is 19 years old and making some crazy tracks, check for Flutetest and Voodoo.

4. What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

We have a residency at Panorama Bar, going there changed my view of everything, it is a life changing place. The atmosphere is amazing, the people are friendly, it has an ice cream parlour and a gay sex room if you are into those type of things.

5. What is your Plat du Jour?

My plate of the day? Bourbon Milkshakes, with a boiled egg with some gold leaf sprinkled on top.

Now go buy a tshirt from the
