ZDS aka Nat Self has earned his reputation as one of the most consistently exciting djs and producers around with a long list of achievements that include performances at many of the worlds best clubs and festivals, a residency at Panorama Bar when it was just a twinkle in most techno tourist’s eyes, a long list of influential original productions, remixes of a diverse mix of current and classic dance records and sustained support from the world’s top djs.
Nat grew up in Brixton, South London and was from a young age exposed to the best of the UK’s underground music scene via pirate radio. This exposure is what started Nat’s passion for music and his thirst to discover and take influence from a wide group of musical genres.
The ZDS sound could paradoxically be described as both strippied back and driving as well as playful and fun. His unique take on house music takes influence from classic house, berlin techno, dirtybird records and late 90’s chicago ghetto house.
Under his ZDS moniker Nat has released over 25 EP’s, 1 album and over fifty official remixes on labels that include Dirtybird, Defected, Toolroom, Snatch and The Classic Music Company to name a few.
