The history of MC Flux is the history of Drum & Bass. The man was on the mic at the very beginning and is still going strong today appearing at Drum & Bass raves all over the UK and beyond. A true innovator of DnB and the scene that we know and love today.
With his career originating in the reggae sound-systems of the 80’s he was rapidly sucked into the growing rave scene and established himself as the MC of choice for fellow titans Fabio, Grooverider, Jumping Jack Frost and Randall. Growing beyond the rave, Flux was signed to Moving Shadow as resident MC, leading the charge at their flagship London event, ‘Voodoo Magic’.
Flux was soon absorbed into the Metalheadz family, hosting the likes of Goldie, Bailey, Kemistry & Storm, Fabio and Grooverider, touring his distinctive London sound across the whole world.
Flux’s microphone technique is one of the most versatile around, enabling him to let the music breathe when required or unleash the power and rolling energy of a seasoned crowd-hype MC. His undeniable skills on the mic see him busier than ever, as comfortable hosting for the darkness of Source Direct as he is for the jungle vibes of Bladerunner, the liquid elegance of Lenzman or the jump up sounds of Hype and Hazard.
With such a deep history in the scene and with such a wild life, it’s almost impossible to describe here all the twists and turns of Flux’s career. Thankfully the man himself has saved us the trouble and recently released a book, ‘Dirty’, detailing the highs and lows of MC life, and much, much more besides.
Having been involved in the pioneering sounds of Drum and Bass for more than 25 years, 2018 now sees Flux busier than ever. They say styles come and go but class is permanent and the new generation of drum and bass heads are equally prepared to recognise Flux’s talent and flow on the mic. Appearing in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield, London to name but a few locations the man continues to be in high demand.
