Biography

There are three artists using the name Zinc.

1) Hardcore punk band from Madrid, Spain. They’re playing since 1995 and have five records released (mostly on Rumble Records).

2) Drum & Bass / Crack House DJ / Producer. Hailing from london’s east end, Zinc first became involved in the dance music world via pirate radio, which led to the meeting of like minded DJs and producers at the birth of jungle – an exhilarating clash of breakbeats, basslines and samples that defined a generation of UK clubbing.

He went on to produce some of the scene’s biggest anthems, most notably ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ and the remix of the Fugees’ ‘Ready Or Not’ – both of which still devastate dancefloors to this day.

In 1996, Zinc launched the True Playaz label alongside jungle veterans Pascal and DJ Hype and continued to produce and release many jungle and drum & bass anthems on True Playaz, throughout the end of the 90s, making the label one of the biggest and most successful of the era.

In 2000 Zinc produced the genre defying ’138 trek’ – which went on to chart in the UK and single handedly created a whole new genre, establishing him outside of his native dnb. During this time he also released music under the moniker ‘Jammin’ and once again found the way into the hearts of ravers and record bags of DJs, way outside of his perceived home – drum and bass.

In 2001 Zinc launched ‘Bingo Beats’ his own imprint, releasing breakbeat and drum & bass from artists including Shy FX, Chase & Status and D.Kay.
