Zed Bias is an English electronic musician who operates within the UK garage and broken beat genres, both as a producer and a DJ. He has also released material under the pseudonym Maddslinky and is half of the Phuturistix duo, as well as other side projects.
Bias is best known for his single "Neighbourhood" which reached #25 in the UK charts in July 2000. He has remixed songs by artists such as Gabrielle, Kosheen, Maxim, Pharoahe Monch and The Streets. He runs the Sidestepper Recordings label. Bias' releases, which explore a more experimental or progressive side of the 2-step garage sound, have been hailed as a crucial element in the establishment of dubstep as a definable sound or genre.
He produced and remixed the Scrufizzer song "Kick It", which entered the UK Singles Chart at number 62.
