If we take a look at the timetable of Zo!'s past two album releases -- SunStorm was released in 2010 and ManMade was released in 2013 -- then it'd be a sure bet that he's on track to release his next collection in 2016. Fans of the producer and multi-instrumentalist wouldn't be the least bit mad to get another stellar compilation of songs three years after the last one that are guaranteed to be on many a year-end Best of 2016 list. Yes, it's safe to say this, and we haven't heard not one note nor lyric to a song yet. But Zo! just has that magic touch with the ability to choose the right collaborators to bring his inner visions to life. And it also helps that he's let his social media followers know that he's been in the studio on various occasions over the past few months when he hasn't been on the road touring with Carmen Rodgers or as part of The Foreign Exchange.
Speaking of The Foreign Exchange, Zo! played a major role in the making of their 2015 release Tales From the Land of Milk and Honey. He shared production duties alongside Nicolay, and the two worked together well to create some heaters. (Zo! detailed the making of TFLMH in a special SoulBounce edition of Studio Campfire Stories.) Should Nicolay return the favor to work on Zo!'s next project, the tradition of incredible music from +FE Music will continue. -- Butta
