Control Z are are a Nu Skool Breakz production duo hailing from London. Tom Petais and Nicky D’Silva aka Dash and Inch met through the Community Music Program in London. The pairing up of these two DJs by their tutor was to be the start of something special and their first Control Z Production was unleashed.

Now with 15 releases and remixes under their belts on respected labels such as 777 and Hardcore beats, Control Z have had support from some of the biggest players in the scene such as The Freestylers, Freq Nasty, Tayo, Aquasky, Deekline , Breakfastaz, Skool of Thought..the list goes on…Radio Support has seen Ctrl Z tracks on Both Radio 1 and Kiss Fm as well as pretty much every specialist station around.

As well as regular gigs, Control Z can be heard smashing up the airwaves on the Double Award Winning station Pyrotechnicradio.com. Hotly Tipped by Breakspoll as ‘the next BIG thing’ , Control Z show no signs of slowing down over the next year and are currently collaborating with breakbeat stalwarts such as Tayo and the Autobots, as well as a host of vocalists in preparation for their next onslaught of tunage!
