DJ and musician Zeb was born in Milan, but got his start after relocating to New York and joining up as part of the dance collective Organic Grooves. His work has appeared on several compilations (including 2000's Breakbeat Experience, and 2001's Playground, Vol. 1, Black Coffee, Vol. 3, and Organic Grooves 3), while he received rave reviews for his DJing stateside, as he specialized in creating irresistible dance beats with several live musicians jamming along. In 2001, Zeb released his debut album, Jesterized, on the Irma label.
