"Zea is the alter ego of Arnold de Boer, singer with Dutch experimental group The Ex. Someone described his music once as: 'Arnold de Boer deploying guitar and sampler for an almighty bout of crazily high energy songs - urgent lyrics over guitar, roughshod beats and grimy bass lines. Joyfully obstinate, wonderfully bonkers.' Breakpop is another term used for the style, and it is a fitting term as Arnold mixes pop tunes with breakbeats and electronics to create a totally unique hybrid of experimental pop music. The project started in 2000 and has released six albums up to date. Crimes Against Pop gives a perfect overview over this music. For us at Klang the idea to work together came up when we (as big fans of The Ex) went to see Zea perform a solo show in Austria. We were blown away by the strength in the simplicity and asked Arnold immediately if he wanted to work with us. Luckily he agreed, and here is Crimes Against Pop. This album was originally planned to become a release on TOOK but we decided it didn't fit the parameters that made such a release, so here it is on Klang."
