DJ Zinc B2B Special Request


Saturday

Don’t miss a fiery B2B from UK dance legend DJ Zinc and Paul Woolford’s alter-ego Special Request.

DJ Zinc:
DJ Zinc, the London-based dance music DJ and record producer known for pioneering new styles, has consistently redefined his sound. He jumps effortlessly between musical genres, and is one of few artists who can claim to have had genuine underground and commercial hits across house, breakbeat, UK garage and drum & bass, having sold over 1,000,000 physical records across his own productions and labels.

With more than two decades at the forefront of electronic music, there can be no question that DJ Zinc is one of dance music’s most respected pioneers. Zinc has forged his own fiercely individual path for the outset, winning both the respect of industry peers and legions of fans along the way.

Special Request:
Special Request is the new rugged alias for house and techno stalwart Paul Woolford. Inspired by the unruly conventions of UK pirate radio stations, this project captures the raw energy and diversity of the illegal airwaves and uses this as a springboard of inspiration for a series of heavyweight productions that span from murky house through darkside techno to chaotic eye-of-the-storm hardcore/jungle tear-outs. The end results are incendiary.

This new moniker serves as a channel for a much more physical, rough around the edges sound, fusing the energy of the hardcore and jungle wonder years with modern production techniques and a seriously heavy aesthetic. As the producer put it himself “Special Request is the ruffage, the rowdy younger brother” of his previous Paul Woolford output.
