Ramadanman and Zed Bias Drop Surefire Sound North American Tour at Eve April 23

Categories: Concert Preview
UK producer Ramadanman.
Dubstep was impossible to avoid during last month's Miami Music Week.

Even electro-house megaproducers like Fedde Le Grand and Benny Bennassi threw some dubby stuff down in the middle of their Ultra Music Festival sets. So it's safe to say that the womp-womp has hit its saturation point.

And even though plenty of producers continue to innovate within dubstep proper (whatever that means anymore), it's definitely time to check out the next evolution of bass music.

If you missed some of the more forward-looking parties that week, like Trouble & Bass and Overthrow's castle jam, this Saturday at Eve is a good place to start. The downtown throwdown stars two producers likely to be new to a Miami audience, up-and-comer Ramadanman and U.K. garage veteran Zed Bias. Both play sounds that are loosely based on the low-end, but rarely rely on the easy reverse-warp bassline. And they also share a predilection for two-step garage, a kind of skittering urban English dance music.

Where Ramadanman often takes this approach in an instrumental, more experimental direction, Zed Bias goes straight for the gut. His sound is unabashedly female-friendly, with mixes full of silky vocals and ragga chants.

Another flavor both will no doubt air out is the growing U.K. funky, a Caribbean-tinged mish-mash of house, garage, broken beat, and even dubstep that's beginning to infiltrate the English charts.

Ramadanman and Zed Bias with Gooddroid, Troy Kurtz, Somejerk, and others. Saturday, April 23. Eve, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The party starts at 10 p.m. and tickets cost $10 via wantickets.com. Ages 18 and up. Call 305-995-5050 or visit miamieve.com.

Zed Bias was "up and coming" in the 90's

You're right. That should have been worded more carefully to only apply to Ramadanman, or to indicate that what I really meant was that these guys will be new to many of the people who come out to the show. Considering that Miami largely missed the late '90s/early 00's version of UK garage/2-step stuff (as I recall we were knee-deep in the Beatcamp era of drum'n'bass), old Zed Bias tracks like "Neighbourhood," etc will sound new. Anyways, thanks for reading, and should be a great night.

Even Beatcamp played UKG every week in the side room and T.S. Heritage hosted the Transatlantic Showcase featuring UK and American garage every WMC. Miami has been there every step of the way, just because people haven't heard it yet doesn't make it new.
