Subb-an’s rapid rise to prominence as a DJ, producer and one of the most exiting new British live acts of recent years is testament to his hard work, natural talent and wholehearted commitment to underground electronic music.
Named as DJ Magazines ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ in their 2011 end of year awards and 79 in RA’s 2012 Top 100 DJs, Subb-an’s prodigious studio talents have seen him release on his own One Records, Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels, Spectral and Saved, to name but a few, and deliver highly acclaimed remixes of Jamie Woon, Tiga, Lana Del Ray, Blood Orange and Noir & Haze. As a result of his highly praised production output Subb-an was named the third most charted artist of 2011 on Resident Advisor. Additionally, he is gearing up to unleash his debut artist album on Crosstown Rebels in 2014.
Outside of the studio he is a regular feature at clubs and festivals all over the world including fabric (London), Panoramabar (Berlin), DC10 (Ibiza), Warehouse Project (Manchester), Movement (Detroit), D’Edge (Sao Paolo), The Electric Pickle (Miami), Just Jack (Bristol), Glastonbury Festival (Pilton), Bob Beaman (Munich), BPM (Mexico), and Hideout (Croatia).
The 2008 release of his debut track ‘Italia’, on Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom records, earned widespread praise from Mixmag, DJ Mag and IDJ and quickly gained support from many figureheads of the industry including Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Sasha, Paul Woolford and Luciano, to name but a few. Six years later, Subb-an’s discography reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of underground house and techno’s biggest labels with releases on Visionquest, Crosstown Rebels, Spectral, Hot Creations, Saved, Silver Network, Leftroom, BPitch Control and 2020 Vision.
Subb-an is also co-owner of One Records with Adam Shelton founded in 2009.
