From his beginnings as a bedroom DJ five years ago to headlining the Glade stage at Glastonbury 2010 and chart success in more recent years, Sub Focus is one of the most interesting, innovative and important voices working in British electronic music today. He has created compositions for artists such as Chase & Status and Example, while his own tracks have won him fans in the form of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Grooverider and Mistajam. Since his beginnings as a jungle DJ to becoming one of bass music's key composers, Sub Focus has cemented his status as a forward-thinking creator with an incredible cannon of compositions.

Sub Focus’ second solo album ‘Torus’ propelled him further into the realms of both credible notoriety and mainstream success – no easy feat. With features from The Alpines, Jess Mills and Kele Okerere, the album was Number 1 in the UK Dance Albums Chart and had Top 10 UK Singles Chart success.

Refusing to be stuck within one genre, Sub Focus has ventured far and wide around the world of dance music. If it has bass and a hard hitting hook, he’s on it. This is brilliantly reflected on the new album which effortlessly balances dubstep, drum & bass, 90's jungle, 80's rave, future garage and even a steel pan symphony. “I like pulling threads from places that maybe aren't meant to go together,” he nods. “I’m quite a magpie in the way I look at music.” With the entire world's ever increasing obsession with electronic music, the future looks very bright for this star.
