David Kennedy's work as Ramadanman and Pearson Sound has been a positive scourge on the airwaves this past year. His current deviation from any kind of conventional 'dubstep' template hasn't come as a shock for anyone who's been following his career from the start - he's always had a particular slant and a percussively textured style all of his own that's often layered with thick and potent bass frequencies and synth washes - but it seems like with recent material like 'Work Them' (released on Loefah's Swamp81 imprint) Kennedy is simply toying with the world's expectations of him.
As a key component behind some of the most daring dancefloor music released in the last year, both as a producer and as a label owner - Kennedy co-runs the Hessle Audio imprint, alongside Pangaea and Ben UFO - he's travelled the world numerous times over releasing music by key producers like Joe, Elgato and James Blake as he's done it. Scoring his label a well respected residency at London club, fabric and more recently, starting his own vinyl only night called Acetate in Leeds, his knack for working over a dancefloor shows no sign of waning. Finding the perfect space between bass bin and monitor he's constantly innovating, refusing to sit still and feeding off all kinds of temperate influences - from old house to Chicago juke music - and the end of 2010 sees him hording an array of productions that are absolutely battering soundsystems, radio shows and eardrums alike.
Zed Bias aka Maddslinky:
In winter 2010, Maddslinky was chosen to co-host BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra's Dubstep Takeover night with Mista Jam - testament to his status as one of the godfathers of the scene. He was also heavily referenced in the same station's two-part 'Story Of Dubstep' documentary.
January 2011 brought the second single from 'Make A Change'; "Further Away" featuring Tawiah was finally released in its own right, with a cutting-edge stash of remixes by Falty DL, Hint, Illum Sphere and more, gaining fantastic reviews and more high profile radio play.
If Maddslinky is the deeper side of Dave Jones' musical mind then Zed Bias is the out and out club music; music MADE for dancing. Ragga and breakbeat infused garage hooks and infectious bassline rhythms combine to make the finest and most cutting edge UK club music. Continuing a flourishing partnership, Jones has now signed his Zed Bias alias to Tru Thoughts, and the new album, to be released mid 2011, will feature collaborations with Skream and Warp Records' Mark Pritchard, aka Harmonic 313, aka one half of Africa Hi-Tek - plus exclusive artwork by Boo Cook of 2000AD/Judge Dredd/Marvel Comics fame.
