Flux Pavilion

Biography

A true polymath, Flux Pavilion’s ability to involve himself in all aspects of music cannot be understated. Known as Joshua Steele to friends and family, he is a singer-songwriter, record producer and label owner who can express himself as well with the drums, guitar, saxophone and piano as well as he can behind the studio desk. Releasing his first record at only 19 years old, over the course of a decade at the top of the bass music game Joshua has sold out the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado twice, notched up a UK top 10 chart hit with grime MC Sway, earned a place in the hallowed DJ Mag top 100 list and had the legendary Kanye West & Jay Z sample his dance floor anthem ‘I Can’t Stop’. The excitement around the young producer reached fever pitch in November 2012 when a Santa Monica event in association with MTV was shut down by riot police; almost 3000 fans turned up to see Flux Pavilion headline a 1000 capacity venue. No one was hurt, just a lot of excited bass fans missed a chance to see the hottest ticket in electronic music. Not bad for a guy who started out replaying TV jingles on his Casio keyboard.
