ZIMMER RELEASES STUNNING EP ‘COMING OF AGE’

Roche Musique producer Zimmer is now set to release his latest EP – ‘Coming of Age’, to the masses today July 10. This four-track window into Zimmer’s new musical direction is available to download and stream now.

Zimmer’s steady rise from Parisian based bedroom producer to a staple on the international DJ circuit and top 10 Hype Machine regular, has been nothing short of incredible. With a host of wildly popular remixes of the likes of MØ, Wunder Wunder and Tina Turner, as well as originals like “Galapagos” or “Saturday Love” that have clocked up countless plays, Zimmer is primed to show the next chapter of his musical journey.

Recorded in Paris and Los Angeles, Coming of Age oscillates between euphoric moments and nostalgia. The EP starts with “Heartbreak Reputation”, rising through multi-layered chords, majestic vocals from Polina and backed by a crisp slow-mo groove. ‘Escape’, the lead single from the EP, builds on this momentum with a playful piano melody and ethereal vocal from Norwegian singer Emilie Adams.

“Moonrise” revolves around a luminous guitar melody while ghostly vocals sweep in and out along muted drums, before an array of hand claps takes the song to it’s euphoric tipping point. Coming of Age ends with “We Are Infinite”, an epic indie finale that feels like the soundtrack of Lost In Translation, capturing the feeling of the morning after an incredible night out in Tokyo.

Zimmer describes his sound as a modern and colorful house music, and his new EP Coming of Age is definitely proving it. “With this EP, I took time to experiment, to sharpen my sound, to bring out the emotions I wanted on the record. I put my heart and soul into this, and hopefully it’s my most complete work to date.”

Zimmer will be touring around the world to share his EP in DJ sets. Be sure to catch him playing in the US, Canada and Mexico from September to October.

About Zimmer

Zimmer writes dreamy, modern and colorful house music. He is part of the new wave of Paris producers redefining French House, alongside Roche Musique label mates Darius, FKJ, Kartell and more.

In the few years he’s been around, Zimmer’s made his name largely of blog-hit remixes, earning millions of plays and support across the globe. He broke out in 2014 with his remix for Danish singer MO, clocking over 5 millions plays. His original work proves just as good: “Galapagos” is a luminous slow house gateway, while “Saturday Love” dips into night-time. True tastemaker, his religiously followed mixtape series keeps listeners in a year-round summer state of mind.

His new EP ‘Coming of Age’ marks his transformation into a well rounded artist ready to take it to the next level, with a more refined, minimalist sound. Recorded between Paris and Los Angeles, the EP oscillates between euphoric moments and nostalgia, seamlessly travelling between soundscapes. But perhaps the best way to experience the magic power of Zimmer is to see him DJ. His busy touring schedule took him all around the globe with over 80 dates in 2014, including sold out shows in NYC, SF and Paris. Coming of Age will be followed with a huge world tour that’s set to take Zimmer’s sound on festival stages and clubs alike.
