Unless you were checking in with Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 last Friday there’s a strong chance you missed this sudden newbie from bass legend Zinc. He’s just ripped it from Annie’s show and put it up on his Soundcloud this morning… And it seriously slaps!
Combining every style Zinc has contributed to, pushed and celebrated since he first entered the rave fray almost 20 years ago, Zinc – If You references everything the Rinse FM broadcaster is all about: old school hookiness, the funky breakbeats of his 138 Trek era, a catchy vocal sample and lavish helpings of low-end… Both of which have been trademark motifs of his since ever.
PLUS it’s coming out on the Bass off-shoot of his seminal imprint Bingo which proudly housed breakthrough releases from the likes of Chase & Status (Wise Up/Tricky in 2003), Random Movement (Scarlet Trouble in 2006) and Sigma (El Presidente in 2007)
Nice work. More of this please Mr Zinc.
