Makes electronic music inspired by vintage
computer games

Since 97' Zalza's been releasing music for the masses in the computer music scene. Being a kid growing up in the late 80's he early became swept away by the Nintendo, SEGA consoles and Commodore 64 and Atari computers that were commonly used at the time.

The first time being introduced to a Nintendo 8-bit console, he was amazed by the quirky sounds coming from the soundtracks. He got his first computer when he was 13 years old. A few years later he joined a group of newfound friends who also loved computers, staying up all night, programming and drinking Jolt Cola.

While as the Internet era was seamlessly evolving, he spent much of his time being online dialing up databases (BBS:es) to download files. Among those files were so called .XM .S3M and .MOD modules (Chiptunes) which sounded just as they came from a Nintendo or Commodore 64. It was love at first listen.
