His unique style of production has achieved international recognition filling Prolix with the courage he needed to establish his own imprint in 2011; cue the birth of the mighty Trendkill Records.
As his reputation has grown, Prolix has found himself collaborating with an array of top artists from across the genre such as Noisia, Misanthrop, and Icicle, as well as remixing the likes of Ed Rush and Optical, Black Sun Empire and Chase and Status. It was with his work for the latter that led to an introduction to d&b pioneers DJ Hype which began the conception of Ganja Tek for the sole purpose of releasing his distinct sound. Since then, Prolix‘ production has gone from strength to strength, securing radio support from several BBC radio DJs including Friction and Mary Ann Hobbs.
Other landmark releases for Prolix include ‚Crater‘ on Renegade Hardware with Nocturnal, ‚Asteroids‘ on VISION with NOISIA, ‚On Like That‘ EP with MC Coppa, and the ‚Transcendent‘ EP on Trendkill featuring collabs with Misanthrop, Mob Tactics, Rido, Meth and MC Coppa again.
Having toured America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Prolix is well known for his high energy, floor-filling DJ sets. As well as doing his own headline shows accross Europe, he has also shared the stage with some of the top names in drum and bass including Chase and Status, Subfocus, and Pendulum.
