Manchester-based Zachary Bruce aka Interplanetary Criminal has flourished so much over the last year with releases on labels such as Sneaker Social Club and a slick, stripped back 4-track EP on Banoffee Pies. Often sampling catchy R&B and dancehall vocals plus his great feel for arrangement and ultra tight sounding drums, it’s no surprise that his music is played extensively in clubs, radio shows and beyond, particularly by garage and breakbeat fans.
Zac’s truly a machine in the studio, having become one of Time Is Now’s strongest representatives with numerous EPs to his name on the much loved Shall Not Fade sub-label. You’d think that’s productive enough right? Not in the IPC universe, as he’s also started his own “ATW” imprint in 2020 together with his good mate Main Phase.
His DJ skills are equally impressive, with a distinctly UK sound, he picks some of the finest from garage, rave and dub and puts a lot of thought into the structure of his sets.
And things are definitely on the up, with his new track ‘B.O.T.A.’ flying high in the charts (at Number 2 as we speak):
