Zed Bias AKA Maddslinky (Tru Thoughts)
Charles Green (Audio/Schtumm)
We are happy to announce the arrival of Zed Bias on the 'Audio presents' series, showing the versatility of the brand with this Tru Thoughts booking.
Maddslinky 2010 album ‘Make A Change’ features collabs with Mr Scruff, Skream, Tawiah, Jenna G, Omar, Nile Sugar, Ghost 1 and Mighty Moe. The album track “Further Away” feat Tawiah was voted No.3 track of the year in the 2010 Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards.
The first official single from ‘Make A Change’ is “Special” featuring UK soul legend Omar on vox. A full colour 12” sleeve housing a 5 track vinyl EP and a bonus CD insert, this amazing package boasts remixes by MJ Cole, Toddla T, Chimpo, At Jazz and Simbad, and a track co-written with Mr Scruff. 5 Star ‘Top Tune’ reviews greeted its release, in publications including iDJ and Mixmag.
The new album track “50 Shades Of Peng” featuring Skream is now out on an exclusive fluorescent yellow Serato 12”, much to the delight of DJs and collectors alike, and is being touted as a timely master-meets-protégé hook up amid the current dubstep fever.
On the same day as the new album, Tru Thoughts officially reissue ‘Make Your Peace’ to bring this seminal album the limelight it deserves, with new and incisive sleeve notes by Martin Clark aka Blackdown, featuring an interview with Skream in which he details the huge influence the album had on him.
Upfront tastemaker promos of the new material have seen regular rotation from the likes of Benji B (1xtra), Gilles Peterson (Radio 1), Alex Nut (Rinse FM), Mary Anne Hobbs (Radio 1), Toddla T (Radio 1), Annie Mac (Radio 1) and more. Features and rave reviews are stacking up across the dance music press and beyond, including DJ Mag, iDJ, XLR8R, Fact, Vice, Clash and many more, with the album being hailed as a triumphant comeback for the man who never really went away, but has been busily toiling underground while the scene he helped to shape has taken the music world by storm.
