ZTT USA

We are proud to announce a new distribution agreement with Navarre Corporation, marking a major return of ZTT’s music to US stores.

ZTT Records, one of the most influential UK record labels of the 80s-00s celebrates the 20th anniversary of its most influential signings with a set of four re-releases specifically for US music fans. The first fruits of a new distribution agreement with Navarre Corporation, it marks a major return of ZTT’s music to US stores. All feature remastered music, rare tracks and classic hits inside new deluxe packaging.

Art Of Noise: Daft (18 track hits anthology)
The definitive history of one of the most influential bands on hip-hop culture. Alongside James Brown and Kraftwerk, Art of Noise is the third most sampled band in history. Contains the hits Close (To The Edit), Beatbox (a Billboard dance chart number 1 in 1984) and Moments In Love, all of which have been more recently sampled by Ying Yang Twins, Janet Jackson, Pharrell/Cee-Lo Green, Nas, LL Cool J, the list goes on…

808 State: 808:88:98 (greatest hits)
Definitive ‘greatest hits’ from the band that added Chicago flavor to the house sound of Manchester, England. Includes Pacific and Cubik – both top ten hits on the Billboard Dance Chart – as well as Ooops (featuring Bjork) and Bombadin (a Todd Oldham catwalk favorite). Hailed as “the UK’s answer to Kraftwerk”, and described by one New York Times writer as “an aural fantasy that can survive even if it is removed from the dance floor.” All these tracks originally appeared on Tommy Boy in the USA in the early 90s, a period which also saw the band play to 12,000 for a memorable concert at Long Beach, California.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood: Welcome to the Pleasuredome
One of the most commercially and critically groundbreaking albums of the 1980s. Frankie’s debut, double album went gold in the USA in 1984 with its lead single Relax going top 10. That same year the band played their first US concert on election night – the start of a six-week sell-out tour. Also contains the massive singles The Power of Love, Two Tribes as well as Frankie’s infamous cover versions of Do You Know The Way To San Jose? and Born To Run. Frankie nostalgia is on a high, following its central role in Zoolander (2001), VH-1’s Bands Reunited (2003), and a major reunion tour (2005).

Propaganda: A Secret Wish
One of the most influential and daring albums of the 1980s. Produced by Trevor Horn (Yes, Seal, Buggles) and Steve Lipson (Pet Shop Boys, Annie Lennox), this was the debut album by the German glam-industrialist four-piece. Two men, two women with dark, Depeche Mode overtones and Anton Corbijn photos, they were described by reviewers at the time as “Abba from hell.” Originally released in 1985, A Secret Wish spawned the groundbreaking singles Dr Mabuse and Duel and featured input from David Sylvian, Steve Howe (Yes) and Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17).
