    After last night there are now no doubts in my mind that Zinc is leagues ahead of anyone in the scene. Tight and creative mixing. Diverse and interesting turntable tricks. And tune selection that surpasses anybody and i mean anybody

    Please discuss...

    I have to say despite there being so many decent big name DJ's out there, Zinc is one of the only ones who never disappoints. Top selecta! (y)

    I would have to say he is my favorite also. I like how he's such a badass producer as well. You know someones really got some talent and are dead serious about what they do when they have skills both in the booth and in the studio.

    I think Zinc is heavy, and always have done. He's not my No.1, but he is the right hand man. The thing about Zinc is that he has got loads of unique little talents on the dex which he uses when mixing, and not everyone picks up on them because he doesn't flaunt them like DJ "King of Scratching" Hype. He will just without warning let rip on a sick 3 deck mix, or bit of phasing which just fucks up the dance floor. Respect to the man for being humble and not trying to big himself up the whole time!!! (y) (y) (y)

    zinc sets are always heavy. i like the way he double edges tunes, double drops after a rewind & teases loads. his mixin is tight & is always brave with his selection (e.g. he playd killa bees wich doesnt get any plays nowadays). always got fresh dubplates aswell!
    big up 2 zinc!!

    can't forget his exclusive dubs:
    pitcher rmx
    fruitella (riddim killa vip)
    3 tones
    ska your body

    if he ever released em im sure they'd reach the top forty easily
