The Cereal Killaz is an Washington DC area breakbeat/drum n bass act created in 2005 in Orlando FL, headed up by the mastermind producer, songwriter, & multi instrumentalist - [zarbizarre]. With elements of Nu Metal, Florida and UK Breaks, Drum n Bass, Industrial and Indie Rock, the sound can be described as hard hitting, with gut wrenching bass, heavy hitting drums, and nasty distorted synths and guitars that make you want to chew your face off.
The act has performed at events all over the US and Europe, with several heavy hitters in the electronic music scene, including: Deekline, Ctrl Z, Aut0b0ts, Noisia, Baobinga, Mephisto Odyssey, Breakfastaz, Hyper, Dynamix II, Frankie Bones, Keoki, Dopamine, Krafty Kuts, Scott Henry, The Rogue Element, Annalyze, Reid Speed, Simply Jeff, Baby Anne and many more, and has been one of the only American acts to perform at the Breakspoll International Breakbeat Awards, held at the superclub, Fabric, in London, UK (Feb 2007).
“... conceptually apart from the average nu skool ... innovative breakbeat ...” - Mike Hogan, owner of Breakspoll - from review of the single“Reality”
“Disturbing, in a good way.” - Carl Loben, DJ MAG, May 2006
As a DJ act, Cereal Killaz / [zarbizarre] is one of the few breakbeat DJ’s who practices harmonic mixing - the technique of mixing different keys artistically, instead of randomly, in order to create musical blends rather than bland or sour mixes.
