Zombie Nation is actually just one man from the nation Germany, Florian Senfter. He resides in Munich and is currently jumping all over Europe playing sets pretty much everywhere. Here's the exciting part... His coming to the land of OZ. The sauerkraut lover is coming to Australia for the first time in November and doing a pretty solid tour of the whole country starting off in sunny Sydney on Nov 28.
His most recent studio album Zombielicious is his fourth release and was completely written and produced solely by Senfter. 'Forza' was the big single released on the tail end of last year which received a lot of deserved credit and is still being played regularly by world class DJs. The second single 'Worth It' is starting to receive the same sort of credit (and so it should). Zombie Nation's techno/electro style is quite common in a lot of production today, the difference is he does it WELL. Here are a few of my favourites from the album including 'Worth It' and a few remixes too.
Worth It Pt 1 - Zombie Nation
Seas Of Grease - Zombie Nation
Supercake 53 - Zombie Nation
Mystery Meat Affair (Shadower Dancer Remix) - Zombie Nation
Forza (Housemeister Remix) - Zombie Nation
I've got a few other bits and pieces for you. This is a remix he did of a recent Kid Sister track along with one of his older tracks.

Gizmode - Zombie Nation
Lastly, to show you that this guy can also DJ (often a skill producers lack) I've found some of his work behind the decks. First is his Mini Mix which was live on Annie Mac's Mash Up a couple of weeks ago. Can't find a track list for this one but it's a very fun uplifting complilations of real disco (i.e. old) style tunes.

This is a set from the beginning of the year when Zombie Nation played at Modfest in Hasselt. It's pretty fucking good. Tracklist in comments...
