Boomkat Product Review:
Big new album from Zed Bias, showcasing the full breadth of his production talent. Bashment is the watch-word here, with an early highlight coming in the shape of 'Do It', a carnival smasher vocalled by Dynamite MC. Jenna G turns up for a turn on springy West London house jam 'Fairplay', while elsewhere there are plenty of swinging, UK-flavoured electro-house cuts like 'Koolnahman' (brightened up by the rudebwoy mic chat of Specialist Moss) and several curveballs too - Toddla T drops in to collaborate on unreconstructed boogie number 'Koolade', while pop crooner Sam Frank lends his vocodered pipes to the spacey electronic pop of 'Night Lovers'. Predictably, the best tracks are the ones where ZB concentrates on proper rhythm engineering, really stepping up his game for 'Trouble In The Streets', a roughed-up UKF burner co-produced with another august veteran, Mark Pritchard, and turning out a fine, frenetic techno stepper in 'Salsa Funk'. There's a heavily syncopated, Funky-influenced revision of the classic 'Neighbourhood' that's worth a look, but the classiest thing on here is probably 'Lucid Dreams', a hydraulically-enhanced, minimal garage roller featuring New York's FaltyDL. Skream drops into to midwife a tough, well-judged dubstep wobbler ('Badness') and 'Sinner' is an epic, synthed-out grime cut that's worth the price of admission alone. Zed Bias is growing old disgracefully, and we wouldn't have it any other way; this diverse album shows exactly why he's currently revered by a new generation of soundsystem-smackers.
