Crack House EP is the latest in dancefloor weaponry from Zinc’s revered and feared arsenal. A 10 track sampler bulging with his high energy take on the house genre, including features from Benga and Sweetie Irie . The few exclusive cuts from the release that have been let off so far are already receiving heavy rotation from DJs including Annie Mac, Sinden, Drop The Lime, Toddla T, Geeneus and Jack Beats, as Zinc marks his territory in pastures new with enviable success.

However, he’s long shown a rebellious contempt for the perceived barriers laid down by genres, tracks like ‘138 Tre
