Future Classic: Maddslinky “Compuphonic”

I am genuinely taken aback that I have not yet written about one of my all time favourite producers. Time to change that. David Jones, aka Zed Bias, aka Maddslinky, aka one half of Phuturistix, is one of the reasons I fell madly in love with UK Garage, and never …

Forgotten Treasure: Zed Bias & MC Juiceman – My Sound (Al Brown Remix)

The sound of flute. Do we hear that in songs anymore? It’s definitely one of the signature instruments for Disco, Italo, and sometimes yes – old school Garage. I’m really loving this 1999 UK Garage classic by Zed Bias and MC Juiceman “My Sound (Al Brown remix)” right now. Nostalgic …

Future Classic: Omar “Dancing” produced by Zed Bias

Ohhhh my lord. An absolute instant classic. The Zed Bias and Omar tag team strike again. Last year they teamed up on the Maddslinky record for the absolute dancefloor bomb “Special” which was for me the single of 2010. “Dancing” picks up where “Special” left off. A perfect mixture of …

Forgotten Treasure: Zed Bias “Let Me Know” (1999)

I’m really down with the whole revival of original UK Garage meets new-school house from Julio Bashmore, Jacques Greene, Joy Orbison, Falty DL, etc… but sometimes I can’t help but feel that people who are into that sound don’t pay enough attention to the originators of the whole skippy beats, …

Future Classic: Maddslinky “Make a change” LP

Most definitely one of the essential records of 2010 for me. Zed Bias makes a furious comeback under his Maddslinky moniker, not that he’d been away but it had been a while since he’d released under his aka more geared towards broken beat and future soul. For those who are …
