From his beginnings as a bedroom DJ five years ago to headlining the Glade stage at Glastonbury in 2010, Sub Focus has become 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’ further propels him into the realms of both credible notoriety and mainstream success – no easy feat. With features from The Alpines, Jess Mills and Kele Okerere initial reactions have been overwhelming.
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 increasing obsession with electronic music, the year 2013 looks very bright for this rising star.
