Flux Pavillion, AKA Joshua Steele, is a producer, performer and composer of some of the most exciting electronic/dubstep music currently in the UK. He first started making music in his early teens, and now at the tender age of 23 is being hailed as one to watch in 2012 by none other then antipodean musical prophet/shouty-man Zane Lowe.
His musical influences of artists like Basement Jaxx and The Prodigy perhaps explain his rapid rise to fame and commercial success: this is hard-hitting and powerful dubstep, but also radio-pleasingly tuneful. The progress of this one-time teenage genius seems inevitable: even global superstars Kanye West and Jay-Z have got in on the act, sampling part of his track ‘I Can’t Stop’ for their 2011 collaboration album ‘Watch the Throne’.
Mr Pavillion is playing his first full UK headline tour, and is at the O2 on Friday 5th October. Dubstep/ electronica fans: you would be wise not miss this.
