Zimbardo from P&Z presents Benchmarc Records

Zimbardo's new label Benchmarc is to launch in March 2006. Z is taking the reins of his first solo project and delivers an altogether different sound. The first release is from the UK's finest, Deepgroove, and certainly shows that Benchmarc means business.

Having rocked the floors of the worlds clubs, DJing from Chile to Kazakhstan, Taiwan to the USA, Russia to Singapore no-one can deny the passion and energy that Z so obviously has for House Music. Over the past few years alongside his longstanding production partner Piliavin, P&Z have remixed and produced for some of the finest labels in the world including Sondos, Star69, Juicy Music, Stereo, and many more, and remix credits taking on the likes of Jocelyn Brown, Peter Rauhoffer, Loleatta Holloway, Ann Saunderson (Inner City), Afrika Bambaata and the list goes on. Also their stellar imprint Distraekt Records has played host to the likes of Terry Farley, Smokin Jo, Robbie Rivera, Steve Angello, D.Ramirez, Tim Healey (Coburn), Flash Brothers and a whole host of other top names in the biz

Joined at the hip through a love of extreme partying, Deepgroove's Grayon Shipley and Lee Pattison are setting the UK alight with their incendiary four deck DJ shows and red hot productions. It's all part of a new "four to the floor" dance sensibility which is sweeping the UK, bringing "up for it" funky chunky house grooves back to the fore. Bristol's finest, Deepgroove have been at the forefront of this push, spreading their gospel of dirty, big room, twisted 4am moments on key labels such as Underwater, Whoop, Toolroom, Slave, Distraekt, Harlem, SlipNSlide, UMM, Junior, Southern Fried and the list goes on.
A special duo, with two special tracks to kick start a special new label – Benchmarc Records.
