Jammer, Zed Bias Combine On Club Mover ‘Qualified’

The latest statement from Mas Tiempo...

Jammer and Zed Bias combine on new single ‘Qualified’.

The release has been years in the making, bringing together two formidable talents within UK club music. Jammer is obviously a grime legend, a hero who helped create platforms for others to thrive, all while maintaining his own singular catalogue.

More recently, Jammer has been focussed on Mas Tiempo, the label and club platform that he launched alongside Skepta.

‘Qualified’ takes Jammer back to the studio, alongside Zed Bias. One of the biggest names in UKG, Zed Bias has continually led from the front line, helping to expand the lexicon of UK club music in the process.

Sheer heat from start to finish, you can hear aspects of UKG’s supple low end, grime production techniques, and also pieces of afro-house.

Zed Bias notes: “This collaboration is a long time coming. I felt it as soon as I came in the studio. It felt like home”.

An extremely natural collaboration, ‘Qualified’ epitomises Mas Tiempo’s approach to both music-making, and the culture that lies behind it. Jammer explains: “When people make music and have a writer, there’s no depth to it. A&Rs just say, ‘Link that guy cos he’s popping and doing numbers’, but this collaboration is different. I’ve grown up on this man’s sound, and this is a whole new chapter for our music.”

Tune in now.
