DJ Zinc (real name Ben Pettit) is a DJ/producer hailing from East London, his career stretching back to 1993. Zinc went on to produce some of the most well known dance anthems such as 'Super Sharp Shooter' and '138 Trek'. After launching the seminal True Playaz label alongside Hype and Pascal and as part of the Ganja Kru, Zinc continued to release and produce many successful jungle and drum 'n' bass anthems throughout the 90s. In 2001 he launched a new label, Bingo Beats releasing tunes under a new sound he calls 'crack house'.
Lenzman has established himself as one of the most exciting new producers in Drum and Bass. Having gained momentum with his deep and soulful beats, it was the release of the highly anticipated ‘Open Page’ that truly set him aside from the pack. Having risen through the ranks over the last few years with breakthrough releases such as ‘Emeralds’, his ‘Soul Patrol’ remix and ‘Fade Away’, Lenzman continues to release his soul-immersed Drum and Bass on some of the top labels in the industry.
You probably know this London born, Bristol based rapper as a regular MC on the dubstep and drum 'n' bass circuit, but he's now dropped his first hip hop EP. With production by Charlie P that often gives more of a nod towards old school US hip hop than much of the sound of the current UK scene, there is a refreshing familiarity and optimism to the beats over which Linguistics' storytelling skills come to the fore. Have a listen to his "Free Speech EP" out now on UK records, and see for yourself why he is causing a such a stir on the scene.
