The American DJ Zach Lubin, aka as DJ Mumtaz, is from Chicago and has been DJing and making electronic music since 1991. He has performed across the US, as well as Spain, Holland, and Belgium. Playing alongside acts like The Advent, Claude Young, James Ruskin, Cari Lekebusch, Joris Voorn, Terrence Parker, Jay Denham, Plastikman and Larent Garnier, Zach is known for his high intensity and funky techno sets, which often infuse a lot of hands-on tricks similar to influences Dave Clarke, Derrick May, and Jeff Mills...... yet can often dive into deep avenues of Chicago, German, and Detroit-influenced house and classic disco and funk. After taking a hiatus to finish a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Zach returned to music production, and many works are posted at his Soundcloud page. He has releases on Jeff Mills' Axis sister-label 6277, Chicago-based Kimochi, and an upcoming album on Parity Records.
