Ramadanman and Zed Bias Invade Miami
April 12, 2011
Future Bass is finally getting the exposure it deserves with the Surefire Sound North American tour featuring heavyweights Ramadanman, Zed Bias, Salva and DJG. The tour makes it stop in Miami at Eve on April 23rd.
Ramadanman and Zed Bias are both bass music pioneers. Founder of the extraordinary label Hessle Audio, Ramadanman started his DJ’ing career at the age of 14, spinning Deep House and Hip Hop which greatly influenced his production later in life. Discovering dubstep through making grime instrumentals for artists, Ramdanman became involved in the scene in 2006 by making tunes and selling them directly through Dubstepforum.com. After that he had several songs pressed to vinyl and released by labels such as Soul Jazz Records who released his song “Every Next Day” on the Box of Dub 2 compilation.
Hessle Audio was formed in 2007 with Ben UFO and Pangaea at the start of 2007 with its first release from TRG selling out in weeks. Ramadanman started playing in UK cities such as London, Leeds, Bristol, Nottingham, York, Brighton, Cambridge, Stoke and Durham as well as international bookings in Amsterdam, Berlin and Brussels. In 2009 he did a mix for Tempa’s famous Dubstep Allstar series which brought him major exposure.
In 2010 Ramadanman took the world by storm with dozens of releases and remixes for Swamp 81′, Hemlock, and Aus Music, just to name a few. He has performed alongside a large array of artists including Digital Mystikz, Skream, Benga, Modeselektor, Kode9, D1, Rusko, Kromestar, Plastician, Appleblim, Martyn, Mary Anne Hobbs, Heny G, Scuba, Joy Orbinson and Headhunter.
Dave Jones aka Zed Bias is one of the pioneers of breakbeat garage and has recorded for the last ten years as himself or under a multitude of pseudonyms. Jones has had many huge tracks over the years, including the UK Garage smash “Neighborhood” in 2000 which is now seen as an all time classic.
Loved by Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs, Jones has influenced many electronic artists and helped make the Dubstep scene what it is today. Hear his XLR8R podcast HERE
