DJ Zinc - Essential Mix

DJ Zinc in my opinion has to be one of the biggest standing examples in the game at the moment of longevity and creativity that never seems to run out of steam. Over the years he's always been two steps ahead of anyone else whether it be in terms of Drum n Bass, Jungle, Hip-Hop, Breakbeat or even now his own perfectly crafted sub-genre of bass-fueled trickery and substance, Crack House.

2009 has seen the re-invention of a true legend and as I found out back in August when I met the man, a thoroughly nice guy as well. While Skream and co. were raking in the booze at a 16plus event at Ministry of Sound, Zinc declined the offer of some free stella with simply the remark "ahhh no thanks, that's what the young-ens do don't they". A truly remarkable and professional individual who has surely influenced my own DJ sets in the past year more than any other DJ or Producer in the land.

His January, April, July and September Crack-House mixes speak for themselves in terms of the 'Nu Sound' of his own that he has begun to forge, but for me this is the ultimate package of what he is about at the moment. Bringing together a smoldering hot-pot of sounds ranging through all scenes and sub-genres of House music, and even the odd compotent of Techno and UK Garage, ladies and gentlemen I bring you the best Essential Mix of 2009... Believe It!
