Mad Max and Back to the Future. I reckon they were the best trilogies I can think of without resorting to Wikipedia. I suppose it shows my age that the dystopian tale of, well, actually I can’t remember with Mel Gibson strutting his stuff, and Steven Speilberg‘s epic tale of teenagers, love life and cars that travel time.

Three is (to quote De La Soul) the magic number for Zen Death Squad. It’s made up of three hot London producers, Screenager, Halogen and Z-Whip (probably not their real names) are right in the middle of their own epic trio. It started with Where the Whales Sleep, which quickly attracted the attention of 6Music, comes Oni Valley. It’s opens with that heavy dubstep feel, huge keyboard riffs (who would have thought that sentence even possible a few years ago) as the track ebbs and flows its way through, with increasing use of that buzzy bassline so beloved of dance music acts, as well as snippets of what sounds like metal guitar work. It’s all rather exciting. You can get the tune (as with all the songs in the trilogy) as a free download, over at their Facebook Page

To go along with the track there’s a (in keeping with Mad Max/Back to the Future) pretty special animated Science Fiction-based video. It comes from the mind of award-winning director and animator Bruno Costarelli, who has worked with Deadmau5, Avicii and Chase & Status to name a few.
