Following on from the live Omar show, we throw a late-night afterparty with special guest DJ Zed Bias, plus Jim Bane (Eastern Bloc) on the decks.
UKG stalwart, broken beat fanatic, dub connoisseur. His pseudonyms include Zed Bias, Phuturistix, Funk Bias, Daluq, Talissman, Ruffcut Bias, Nu Design, 7 Wonders, Almighty Beatfreakz, Dekata Project – just some of the names Maddslinky, aka Dave Jones, has recorded under in the last 14 years as himself or in collaboration with others.
With a slew of seminal releases in 1999 on his own Sidewinder and Sidestepper imprints, Jones then hit the UK Charts as Zed Bias in 2000 with Neighbourhood, now widely regarded as one of the all time classic UK Garage tracks.
He is cited as one of the pioneers of breakbeat garage but is always moving with – or ahead of – the times and his recent productions still grace the playlists of Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac, Benji B, Nick Grimshaw, Gilles Peterson and Mista Jam, as well as into the record boxes of DJ / producers like Toddla T, Loefah, Skream, Pearson Sound, Oneman, Julio Bashmore, Kode 9 and Martyn (who included ‘Lost on Tenori Street’ on his ‘Fabric 50’ mix).
Entry to the afterparty is just £8 advance or free for all Omar gig ticket holders.
