‘Make Your Peace’ influenced a whole array of young producers in waiting and playing a key role in the creation of dubstep. Set to bring this important record the limelight it deserves, the re-release sports new artwork and incisive sleeve notes by Martin Clark aka Blackdown, with quotes from Skream citing the album as a major influence on him.
Always moving with (or more often ahead of) the times, breaking boundaries and filling dancefloors, the man behind the Maddslinky moniker has had a string of successes under various aliases, including Zed Bias, Phuturistix and Ruffcut Bias; his Zed Bias productions have had particularly notable success, with support from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Pete Tong. He hit the UK Top 40 in 2000 with the single “Neighbourhood”, now widely regarded as one of the all time classic UK garage tracks – so much so that with the recent resurgence in the 2-step sound in the UK club scene it was re-released last year with a remix from Roska that fully redefined its importance to a younger generation of clubbers.
