REAL NAME: Steve Nobes
LABELS: Detail Recordings
Producer, dj, remixer and general drum and bass misfit. Detail Recordings label owner. Attempting to drag the dnb scene out of musical mediocrity, one genre defying tune at a time. OR a producer that cant emulate the latest dnb fad. You decide…
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.
Since emerging at the forefront of the drum & bass scene in 2007, Lynx has established a reputation for high quality productions with an innovative edge and DJ sets to match. 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.
