Zamali's real first contact with music happened at the age of 6 years old, discovering his father's records collection full of soul, funk, r'n'b & rock classics. Labels such as Stax & Tamla Motown were the ones he discovered first. At 11 y.o. he started to buy his first records. His first 7" is still alive (Blondie - Rapture) somewhere in his crates !
The house scene wasn't present in Belgium yet and he was still listening & digging the old 60's & 70's classic rock bands like Jefferson Airplane, The Kinks, The Doors, Pink Floyd ... till the end of the 80's. He bought his first turntables in '91, starting to mix pure deep house music first then quickly moved to the other interesting music styles such as techno, Jungle, Trip hop, Hip hop.
For around 6/8 years he was mainly playing at private parties, wedding, birthdays and bars, never willing to find a residency in clubs because he preffered raving at a fool moon party than spending all his weekend nights indoor in clubs.
At the end of the 90's he started to work for the first belgian online music store & met people who helped him to go back to his first love, funk ! He dropped mixing too, trying to play with computers & slowly starting to do remixes, mashups and mixes.
Nowadays, after some years of playing only with his computer, he comes back to mixing with some funky mashups, funky breaks, old school funk & hip hop, reggae, afro beat & funky house tracks in his selections.
On his new ep titled 6 million ways to funk he presents some of his favour sounds from downtempo funky and jazzy breaks and beats. The three of this forth track ep are remixed form timewarp music artists: Afternoons in Stereo, Timewarp inc & Umbo & Balatz!
