In this talk at the 2005 RBMA in Seattle, Zinc explains his early beginnings and involvement in the seminal production outfit Ganja Kru, the importance of...

The virtues of dance music are either setting the pace or, in most cases, at least keeping up with the ever-changing flavours of the season. Lars Bartkuhn has a different ambition. He's aiming for longevity, combining influences like classic deep house, soul, funk or Brazilian music with modern jazz elements. Together with his brother Marek and Yannick Elverfeld he set up Needs Music in 1999, a production threesome and label based in Frankfurt that rose to international fame among music lovers...

A hook-up with a reggae soundsystem in Milan meant Enrico could also throw parties, and invite friends like Ian O' Brien and Titonton...

From the age of 17 he decided to expand his repertoire of instruments, moving from cello to the world of synthesized segues and clunky MIDI clocks. The broken beat sound came...
