Year Zero is the second album of collaborative work from Apollon/Muslimgauze and is also Muslimgauze's last recorded work before he died.

The album uses dark textural soundscapes and cut-ups - the sonic equivalents of William Burroughs writings - interwoven with experimental electronic beats and pulse, ranging from mock dub to crunch drum + bass and middle-eastern patterns and sounds. The dynamic shifts between padded eerie ambience, full-on electronica and white noise distortions give the listener a feeling of unease while the concept is unfolding over 15 tracks and 66 minutes.

A rare collaborative work from Muslimgauze, the two artists work with synergy to create a truly remarkable and powerful album. The album was officially released on 1st January 2000.
