Zinc

Zinc: a metallic chemical element; having the symbol Zn and atomic number 30.

THINK AGAIN

Zinc is a dj out of the UK who's been around for quite some time now. At the start of his career, he became well known for his Drum and Bass. He recently moved away from this style, took some time off, and has come back with his own style of house; Crack House.

DJ Zinc - 128 Trek
This song perfectly describes his take on house; fusing it with his roots in Drum and Bass and adding a few jungle sounds. He once again shows his skills in producing a low BPM banger like he had previously done with "138 Trek".

Since his comeback with the Crackhouse EP, Zinc has been working hard and recently dropped the Wile Out Ep. Zinc brings back Crackhouse's "Blunt Edge" and throws some catchy vocals by Ms Dynamite over it. The result, the A-Side of the EP.

He also collaborates with Benga on the insanely wobbly bassline behind "My DJ" which once again has Ms Dynamite throwing in some erratic vocals.

Ah and now "la pièce de résistance". The last song on the EP, "Music Makers" is one of my favorite songs of February. The vibe is so spacey and uplifting I can pretty much listen to it nonstop. Plus the lyrics are mesmerizing "We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams." Don't be fooled though, this song could easily kill it in a club.

  2. I've been listening to Blunt Edge on repeat for a month. Delightful little intro there, Bynette.
