Zed Bias - Night Lovers feat. Sam Frank - out on Tru Toughts



Zed Bias Night Lovers feat Sam Frank

(Digital Single) Tru Thoughts Recordings TRUDD039, 2011-12-12

A stunning slice of wonky vocoder funk, the edgy, woozy and downright irresistible Night Lovers featuring Sam Frank (out digitally on 12th December) is the second single from Zed Bias' highly acclaimed Biasonic Hotsauce - Birth Of The Nanocloud album on Tru Thoughts. One of the standout songs on an LP brimming with heavy-hitters, Night Lovers is as pristine and darkly alluring a cut as you'd expect from the combination of revered producer Zed Bias and wunderkind Sam Frank (whose Skream/Magnetic Man collaborations have seen him take over the airwaves of late). At once timeless and futuristic, a honed and classic pop song shines up through the layers of heavily plied effects, giving this instantly arresting ear-worm a real and lasting charm that will see it gracing playlists aplenty. The single release brings a killer selection of new remixes from Greenmoney, Scratcha (Hyperdub/Rinse/DVA), C.R.S.T. (Well Rounded/No Hats No Hoods) and Heavy Feet, twisting the song for new dancefloors; plus the original and Dub mixes of uptempo album track Yagga feat. Serocee (Basement Jaxx/MJ Cole) as a B-side.

Press Release :
"Brilliant, amazing, fresh, relevant music" - ANNIE MAC (BBC R1)

A stunning slice of wonky vocoder funk, the edgy, woozy and downright irresistible "Night Lovers" featuring Sam Frank (out digitally on 12th December) is the second single from Zed Bias' highly acclaimed 'Biasonic Hotsauce - Birth Of The Nanocloud' album on Tru Thoughts.

The 'Biasonic Hotsauce...' LP, which came out on 26th September, is enjoying major BBC Radio 1 profile including a recent Zed Bias Minimix and interview for Annie Mac, an hour-long special feature with Benji B, an upcoming special with Toddla T and numerous plays from Gilles Peterson; plus rotation across 1Xtra, Choice, Kiss FM, Rinse, Ministry and beyond. Meanwhile, positive coverage in Pitchfork, Fact, XLR8R, Clash, BBC Music, The Fader and more continues to stoke the international press and online buzz.

One of the standout songs on an LP brimming with heavy-hitters, "Night Lovers" is as pristine and darkly alluring a cut as you'd expect from the combination of revered producer Zed Bias and wunderkind Sam Frank (whose Skream/Magnetic Man collaborations have seen him take over the airwaves of late). At once timeless and futuristic, a honed and classic pop song shines up through the layers of heavily plied effects, giving this instantly arresting ear-worm a real and lasting charm that will see it gracing playlists aplenty.

The single release brings a killer selection of new remixes from Greenmoney, Scratcha (Hyperdub/Rinse/DVA), C.R.S.T. (Well Rounded/No Hats No Hoods) and Heavy Feet, twisting the song for new dancefloors; plus the original and Dub mixes of uptempo album track "Yagga" feat. Serocee (Basement Jaxx/MJ Cole) as a B side.

The man behind the Zed Bias alias is pioneering Manchester based producer Dave Jones, also well known under his deeper, dubstep-influencing Maddslinky moniker and cited by many of today's young talents as a major influence. The new album finds him on emphatic form, distilling and reworking a wide spectrum of club styles, from house to R'n'B, dancehall to dubstep to UK Bass/Funky; first single "Fairplay" / "Phoneline" featuring Jenna G (Chase & Status) and Rosco Trim (Dawn Raid) dropped in August to huge radio and press support. Other big collaborators on the album include Skream (Magnetic Man), Mark Pritchard, Toddla T, Falty DL, MdCL, Dynamite MC and more, and you'll also find the new 'Biasonic Version' of chart-storming UK Garage anthem "Neighbourhood".

In the last year Jones has placed himself firmly at the forefront of UK dance music once again. Chosen to co-host BBC Radio 1's Dubstep Soundclash alongside MistaJam last December, he was also heavily referenced in the station's 'Story Of Dubstep' documentary. His 2011 DJ exploits have included Glastonbury and Coachella and a double-header US tour with Pearson Sound; and "Dancing", his massive collaboration with Omar, was christened this year's Carnival anthem by both the Guardian Guide and Metro, gaining 1Xtra and MTV Playlisting and Radio 1 spins from Annie Mac, MistaJam, Benji B, Trevor Nelson, Pete Tong and Rob Da Bank.
