I’ve been into this dude, Barbarix for a few years now. He is based local to me in the West Midlands. We stuck him on our Transnational Dubstep compilation and his track was one of my faves on that. He has been all over BBC Radio 1 on Mary Anne Hobbes show etc.
He is not just a Dubstep producer but a very talented Ambient Electronica artist too as these tracks below will testify.
He is certainly a name to watch out for in the future cause as he matures, so will his sound and I’m waiting for a masterpiece to drop from him one day soon in the imminent future.
Watch This Space!!!!
At the age of eighteen Steven started producing Happy Hardcore which led to him DJ’ing all around the Midlands. Then he heard Mary Anne Hobbs on her BBC Radio1 show. The sound she was supporting totally changed his whole outlook on music and made him realize that you don’t have to stick to certain formulas to make good music. This is when he started producing his own interpretation of Dubstep, IDM, Ambient and Sci-fi Glitch under the guise of Barbarix. Since then he has had airplay on a number of internet radio stations in England, Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Florida, Atlanta, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Russia, Ukraine and regular plays on Radio1 and the Asian network by Mary Anne Hobbs, Bobby Friction & Nihal and Radio1′s ‘IN NEW DJ’S WE TRUST’ DJ Nerm. Barbarix has also been a feature artist on Rob Booth’s well respected Electronic Explorations podcast.
