I don't know anything about tozo, other than what I've learned from his Soundcloud page: he lives in Tokyo and he possesses a device capable of running Nanoloop for iOS. But I also know that he is far and away the master of this program, turning out bangers in a wide range of styles, including jungle, hardstyle, bass and IDM. He's already had a couple of remixes featured on Love & Tonic in the past year, one for Jake Allison and one for myself, and I'm very proud to finally be presenting his debut album, which I hope will serve as a clear justification as to why tozo is my go-to artist for the very best of iNanoloop.

Nanoloop for iOS/Android has a lot of cool features, but by far the coolest is the "track send" feature. With one tap, you can e-mail a track to another Nanoloop user as raw data and they can import it and remix it just as easily. This is how my first collaboration came about; Jake Allison asked if I wanted to collaborate on a track and in the end we had "Z-Saber." Eventually he suggested I organize a remix EP with all the Nanoloop musicians we could gather and what you have here is the fruits of our collective labor. 12 remixes from 11 different musicians, from all corners of the globe, across a diverse spectrum of styles. I can safely say there's something in here for everyone. Well, everyone that likes music.

A quick note for listeners: you should use a stereo system or headphones that can reproduce the sub-bass spectrum effectively. You've been warned.

"New Jersey-based DJ and producer Christian Montoya (love and tonic records) produces music on the DS-10 that's drier and more exposed, as he programs intricate bass music on the unprocessed Nintendo cart. Christian works as a game designer by day, and channels some of the DS-10's game music and so-called 'chip music' heritage. The results, though, are a perfect marriage of game chip-waveform rawness, nude bass and synth and percussion sounds, and carefully-concocted grooves. For anyone concerned that game systems could hinder moving your butt out of the seat, this album is required listening. It's utterly stripped-bare dance goodness — and it turns out the DS bass sounds fantastic." -- Peter Kirn, Create Digital Music
