Culprate’s musical intuition started at the age of just 13 when he decided to learn the guitar. By the age of 15, Culprate’s passion and creativity really came into bloom as he was introduced to electronic music. From then on it was simply a matter of time before his driven persona and growing production skills resulted in Culpate becoming one of today's most interesting and intricate producers.

ZES manoeuvres between atmospheric futuristic beats, forward-thinking sounds and innovative compositions built to last. With an instinctive ear for blissed-out melodies, sometimes topped with his own voice and the subtle use of his guitar to complete the melancholy, it's no exaggeration to state that ZES' gift of musicality is being put to good use, time and time again.
