    Easily one of the best producers if you're looking for proper jump up. Dark and rolling but always catchy at the same time. Love his tunes. Kebab Knife was one of the first 12"s I bought.

    What about shit like this though, geared up material

    Kebab Knife is quality and September B was the best tune off that Months series. This was a stand out Zen tune for me



    lots more old Zen gems out there

    Only record of his I ever owned was this, bought way back before I knew any better, but tbh it stood the test of time better than almost all but a tiny handful of early 00s jumpup records I can think of, and it still sounds HUGE today.
