Biography

Phuturistix, otherwise known as Zed Bias and injekta, head up the Phuture Lounge operation as label bosses and executive producers at the PL Studio. Betwee running the studio and playing a part in many of the label’s releases, somehow they still find time to maintain their reputation as the most prolific music makers around. The duo are famed for their tight beat-mastery and tough, funky, but soulful and atmospheric style. Countless aliases include Phuturistix (Locked On, Hospital Records, Inspirit Music), Maddslinky (on Sirkus Records), Daluq (with Italy’s DJ Rocca) and The Henchmen (with MC Juiceman and Simba).

Zed Bias, a producer, DJ and true innovator from deep within the UK music scene, scored his first top 30 track with ‘Neighbourhood’ before setting the blueprint for the darker UK Garage sound at the end of the 90s. He was asked to mix the definitive “Sound of the Pirates” compilation and at this time began to infuse a jazzier influence into his tracks. Alongside remixes for Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child, The Streets, Kosheen and Gabrielle, Zed was instrumental in the formation of an alternative urban scene that ‘Wasn’t dependent on champagne, Versace and Moschino; A scene that was all about the music.’

Soon after the Maddslinky project was signed to west London beats label Sirkus. Having remixed ‘Hook And A Line’ for 2Banks Of Four, the ‘Make Your Peace’ LP hit the streets mid 2002 and heralded a new direction for garage, somewhere between the west London sound and garage’s b-line dynamics.
