PERFORMING ARTIST

Flux Pavilion

DJ / Producer

Flux Pavilion’s polymath-like ability to involve himself in all aspects of music cannot be understated. Known as Joshua Steele to friends and family, Flux is a singer-songwriter, record producer and label owner who plays the drums, guitar, saxophone and piano. His achievements range from releasing his first vinyl at 19 years old to selling out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado twice, notching up a UK top 10 hit with Sway and having Kanye West & Jay Z sample his dance floor anthem ‘I Can’t Stop’ in addition to featuring in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s 2015. Not bad for a guy who started out replaying jingles he’d heard on TV on his Casio keyboard.

Influenced by the likes of David Bowie, The Beatles and Frank Zappa in the early years, it was when he heard The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers that Flux Pavilion knew he had found a musical direction he truly wanted to explore for himself. A deluge of musical projects followed, writing instrumental hip hop and dirty drum & bass, joining local bands and producing for other acts all while studying at university. But the major turning point for this unquestionably talented musician was a visit to London superclub Fabric:

“I never went to clubs because I didn’t feel accepted into that scene; it felt too showy, too well-groomed. Then I saw Rusko play at Fabric and it changed my perception of everything. He was jumping around wearing a big cardboard hat shaped like a bird playing the most outrageous music I had ever heard. I loved it.”

From that day forth Flux Pavilion was destined to rise, first to the top of the dubstep scene, and then to the peak of electronic music the world over. His own label, Circus Records, started alongside childhood friend Doctor P with the backing of D&B pioneer DJ Swan-e and Earl Falconer of UB40, has been responsible for unleashing some of the most successful electronic music that the underground has to offer, launching the careers of scores of new talent in the process.

Meanwhile Flux’s own output has gone from strength to strength, having worked on a diverse selection of original tracks and collaborations with Childish Gambino, Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki and Turin Brakes plus remixing for the likes of Skrillex, Jamiroquai, MIA and DJ Fresh. While most students are thinking about where to go on their gap year, Flux Pavilion was celebrating ‘I Can’t Stop’ being picked as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’ when at the time he was still living in student halls. Ever since, Flux’s music can now be found regularly cropping up in the playlists of MistaJam, Fearne Cotton and Eddy Temple Morris as well as drawing attention from Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Prodigy, Fat boy Slim and Christina Aguilera to name a few. Reaching new heights, Flux has recently been the first producer ever to be officially asked to remix the Star Wars theme song in what will surely be a highlight of his career to date.

The intervening years have seen Flux notch up three headline US tours, two headline UK tours, DJ sets at every festival worth mentioning – from Glastonbury to Reading, Coachella to EDC Vegas and beyond – plus live performances with Example, Foreign Beggars and Chiddy Bang. In that time Flux has continued to develop his signature sound, retaining the all-important energy that The Prodigy and Rusko inspired him with in the early days and undoubtedly inspiring a generation of electronic music producers of his own in the process.

Flux Pavilion’s debut album, “Tesla” is out now on Circus Records.

SKisM

DJ / Producer

Internationally renowned DJ, pioneering producer, label head and artist manager – these are the job titles that summarize SKisM’s illustrious career since blasting onto the dubstep scene in 2009.

As one of the forefathers of heavy dubstep, he has collaborated with and remixed the likes of Flux Pavilion, Excision, Zomboy, Porter Robinson and The Foreign Beggars, whilst his back catalogue of originals is punctuated with classics such as ‘Rave Review’ and ‘Like This’. The seminal concept track ‘Experts’, which was accompanied by the video that infamously rocked the internet in 2012, continues to be referenced as his greatest musical contribution to the genre, and arguably the best music video within it to date.

Known to his peers as the ‘Dj’s Dj’, SKisM’s technical prowess and energy on four decks has cemented his name as one of the busiest and most electrifying DJ’s on the circuit, and has seen him continually tour the globe over the past 5 years. His mixes gain almost as much, if not more attention than his tracks, and his inimitable ‘Double Drop’ style whips dance floors into a frenzy wherever he plays.

As a scene leader, SKisM is constantly pushing things forward through his award winning record label Never Say Die Records. Both the founding father and sole A&R, he has brought some of the most exciting artists in bass music to the masses, such as Zomboy, Eptic, MUST DIE! and rising star LAXX (with whom he collaborated with on his most recent Beatport chart topping single ‘Hostile’).

Poised once again to take things up a notch, 2015 has seen the hugely successful launch of the ‘Black Label’ imprint with the first in a series of XL compilation albums, picked and mixed by the man himself.

Having millions of plays on his Soundcloud and Youtube, YULTRON's new songs and releases in 2016 are definitely going to be ones to look out for.
