SummaryDubstep pioneer Maddslinky , also well known under his Zed Bias alias, has signed to Tru Thoughts to release his brand new album, 'Make A Change'. The first single to be lifted from the record is "Special" featuring Omar, out September 14th on 12" vinyl with a bonus remixes CD.
Omar's 20 year career at the forefront of British soul has seen him collaborate with Stevie Wonder (who declared himself a fan on hearing Omar's debut, "There's Nothing Like This", in 1992) and other greats including MOBO winner Estelle, Angie Stone, Common, Rodney P and Erykah Badu to name a few. "Special" is a perfect marriage of his immense vocal talent and charisma with the cutting edge production of Manchester-based beatsmith pioneer Maddslinky. A full colour 12" sleeve housing a 5 track vinyl EP and a 10 track bonus CD, this single release package also boasts a new track co-written with Mr Scruff plus an all-star clutch of remixes from MJ Cole, Toddla T, At Jazz, Chimpo and Simbad (the latter two also bringing tasty dub versions to the party). The original instrumental and Omar's a cappella are also included on the CD, as is the video for "Special."
