One of the pioneers of breakbeat garage his pseudonyms include Zed Bias, Phuturistix and Ruffcutt Bias Zed Bias, Phuturistix, Henchmen, Daluq, Talissman, Ruffcut Bias, Nu Design, 7 Wonders, Dekata Project, Strontium Dog – just some of the names Maddslinky, aka Dave Jones, has recorded under in the last ten 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. 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.

He is 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 Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs, as well as into the record boxes of DJ / producers like Toddla T, Blame, Skream, Plastitian, Oneman, Benga, Kode 9 and Marytn (who included “Lost On Tenori Street” on his recent “Fabric 50” mix).

The first Maddslinky album, “Make Your Peace”, dropped in 2002 and although not given a very wide release it proved to be a highly influential record in the early days of dubstep, with the likes of Skream still citing it as a massive influence on his music. Featuring collaborations with Will White (Propellerheads), Kaidi Tatham (Bugz in the attic), Luca Roccatagliati (Ajello/Daluq), Kevin Robinson, Kayo, Juiceman and Simba, “Make Your Peace” will be officially re-released on Tru Thoughts in the end of October of 2010 to bring this pioneering album the attention that it deserves, alongside a brand new Maddslinky album with collaborators including Skream, Omar, Jenna G and many more.
