The second age of DJ Zinc's heroic career continues. Having been a pivotal figure in the rise of D&B around the world, his conversion to slower house/bass/breaks tempos has served him just as well as both a DJ and producer, as evidenced by this new collab with superstar electro-turntablist A Trak for this release on Fools Gold. With faint touches of his seminal "128 Trek" drum pattern on "Stingray", Zinc and A Trak steer this new banger through some sub-aquatic bleeps and sirens while Benga steps up with a trademark dread 'n' half-step beauty that nicely vamps around the original.
Zinc and A-Trak's transatlantic collabo connection picks up where "Stingray" left us with this firing piece of no-nonsense euphoric grit. Natalie Storm's vocals hog most of the spotlight. A dancehall diva with crisp delivery and just a smidgeon of raunchy undertone, she drives the floor into oblivion as the levels peak beneath. Remix-wise it's satisfaction central as we're smashed to pieces by Shadow Child (woozy breakbeats with a heavy dose of sub), Dismantle (boshing, full-paced electro stomp) and JWLS (D&B/half-step madness).
