Portsmouth-born Lynx had his first release at the tender age of 17, back in 1996 with Southampton-based Hardcore pioneers, Ramos, Supreme and Sunset Regime. A career in music beckoned and he set about racking up many years of commercial studio experience plus a Masters degree in Audio Technology, learning his trade and developing the skills to take his sound further. Starting with work experience at Chichester based studio ‘Airtight’, Lynx worked alongside the likes of Friction, Mampi Swift, Stakka, Skynet, and Skinny where he demonstrated a hard-working attitude plus a natural aptitude at the controls and earned himself the position of co-managing the studio. From his musical beginnings producing hardcore, in 2002 Lynx moved into the new, techno-infused wave of drum & bass and racked up a string of releases with Brighton based labels Underfire Recordings and Audio Blueprint (Stakka & Skynet). Tracks such as ‘Meltin Pot’ and ‘Special Agent’ were championed by Andy C, Ed Rush & Optical, Shimon and Kemal. Keen to progress and diversify his sound, Lynx collaborated with popular French DJ Flow to produce ‘Time-Out’ (Renegade Recordings, 2002). The track appeared on the first ‘Renegade Rollers’ compilation and proved a firm favourite with Radio 1’s Fabio and the legendary John Peel, giving Lynx confidence in his ability to capture the essence of a musical genre and produce drum & bass across the musical spectrum.
Lynx has clearly demonstrated he’s not afraid to break the mould whilst staying true to his own style. Reinventing drum & bass from the ground up, Lynx’s funk-fuelled sets have gained a reputation for smashing stereotypes as well as dance floors and, like his productions, appeal to clubbers across the spectrum. Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and his own imprint Detail Recordings are just some of the leading labels he’s released on, not to mention his most recent single on Ram Records; all are proof that his sound is not only fresh but diverse.
