DESTINY LOUNGE - Hosted by Trust:
DZ (Badman Press)
2008 was a massive year for DZ with no shortage of releases bearing his name, and even though he builds new material incessantly, forever chasing new sounds, arrangements, techniques and styles, he has maintained a core sound that continues to appeal to listeners worldwide. From “the speaker-popping drop of the year” (phonica) on High Deaf’s “The Boss” (OffRoad off001), to the “no-nonsense slice of dancehall murder balladry” (forced exposure) of “Old Timers” (Black Acre acre006), down to his “truck-sized steppy 4×4 floor packer” (phonica) remix of Bobby Caldwell’s “What You Won’t Do For Love” (Slit Jockey sj002), to the #1 selling dubstep track of 2008 on beatport (www.beatport.com) in “Down” (True Tiger ttr013), you would be hard-pressed to find a dubstep mix in 2008 without at least one of his tracks on it. Even house DJ’s have been playing his releases and dubs, from Diplo naming “Down” his #1 track of the month in XLR8R’s October 2008 issue, to Herve playing his remix of Jokers of the Scene’s “Baggy Bottom Boys” on his Radio1 Essential Mix, to Jack Beats battering his dub “AWOL” and the hundreds of mixes posted online featuring (and most opening with) his Bobby Caldwell remix.
