Joshua Steele always knew music would be a major part of his life.
The humble Towcester, U.K. native says he was so sure of his musical path that he “gave up” on school subjects that weren’t an interest to him early on. Instead, he invested time learning new instruments and eventually teaching himself electronic music production.
It paid off.
The 24-year-old producer now tours the world sharing his lyrical dubstep productions under the name Flux Pavilion, well known for his tracks “I Can’t Stop” and “Bass Cannon.”
His career achievements already include the cofounding of Circus Records with Doctor P and Dj Swan-E; collaborations with Diplo, Jay-Z, and Kanye West; and musical features in the major motion picture The Great Gatsby, the Kony 2012 campaign, and the video games SSX and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
And it seems you “can’t stop” him now.
We caught up with Flux Pavilion before a show in Kansas City last month. He told us more about his early days as a house party DJ, why Colorado is home to his favorite venue in the world, why he’s more interested in the new Justice album release instead of Daft Punk’s.
Flux Pavilion is currently on tour to support his latest EP Blow The Roof and is set to perform at this year’s Camp Bisco, set for July 11-13 in upstate New York.
