Coming of age at a time when the breakbeat was still in its infancy, DJ Zinc has been there, done that and copped the t-shirt.
A true veteran of the bass wars, the DJ, producer and radio presenter is still supporting new talent, still ahead of the curve.
Hosting a Rinse residency, DJ Zinc continually supports fresh sounds. Allowing these to seep into his own productions, the bass saturated house of new single 'Show Me' could mark something of a breakthrough.
Out on July 20th, it's a buoyant yet bruising slice of house music as only a Londoner could craft. Alongside this, DJ Zinc has had a hand in selecting a batch of remixes from some intriguing names.
Explosive duo Sigma have stepped in to remix 'Show Me', delivering something which is steeped in Zinc's own roots. Ruffneck drum 'n' bass, the pair stretch and warp the vocals into something funky yet surreal.
The tempo is upped, with Sigma smashing a blast of energy into the original production. Check it out below.
