The one and only DJ Zinc - the jungle/DNB/house legend touches down in Dunedin on Wednesday May 12th.

It's the badboy DJ Zinc get low! Hailing from London's East End, Zinc first became involved in the dance music world via pirate radio, which led to the meeting of like minded DJs and producers at the birth of jungle – an exhilarating clash of breakbeats, basslines and samples that defined a generation of UK clubbing.

He went on to produce some of the scene’s biggest anthems, most notably ‘Super Sharp Shooter’ and the remix of the Fugees’ ‘Ready Or Not’ – both of which still devastate dancefloors to this day.

In 1996, Zinc launched the True Playaz label alongside jungle veterans Pascal and DJ Hype. In 2000 Zinc produced the genre defying ‘138 trek’ – which went on to chart in the UK and single handedly created a whole new genre, establishing him outside of his native dnb. During this time he also released music under the moniker ‘Jammin’ and once again found the way into the hearts of ravers and record bags of DJs, way outside of his perceived home – drum and bass.

Testament to his remarkable achievements in British dance music, 2008 saw Zinc included in the ‘British Music Experience’ alongside the Beatles and Sex Pistols. The permanent exhibition in London’s 02 Arena, chronologically documents the major contributors to contemporary British music.

With the dawn of 2009 Zinc called an end to his hiatus on the dancefloor and began producing and DJing again, only this time producing and playing ‘house’, in the loosest sense of the term. With his blatant disregard of genre blueprints (see 138 trek, ‘Faster’ et al) you can never be exactly sure what’s coming next.

Not to mention Zinc's latest smash release featuring Ms. Dynamite - 'Wile Out.....'
