Over Zed Bias
As one of the pioneers of breakbeat garage, Dave Jones has recorded under many aliases, with the Zed Bias moniker his best known. It was under this name that he released a string of seminal underground 12-inches through his own Sidewinder and Sidestepper imprints, as well as leading labels such as Social Circles, while also hitting the UK charts in 2000 with the irrepressible bounce of "Neighbourhood" on Locked On. It was on this label that that the first Phuturistix releases surfaced a collaborative project with Manchester-based artist Injecta. Together they went on to record the critically acclaimed Feel It Out album, released in 2003 by Hospital Records. Jones had already begun to explore this more soulful, jazz-tinged style under his Maddslinky guise, culminating in the release of the Make Your Peace album on Laws Of Motion, and with Hospital recently releasing his first drum 'n' bass track "Something About This," Zed Bias is one producer who is becoming increasingly difficult to tie down.
