First French artist signed on Renegade Recordings & booked for the Transmusicales Festival back in 2002 (Rennes, FR), DJ Flow is an up & coming drum’nbass French DJ & Producer to watch out for in 2004…bringing a nu generation to the music scene.
Fresh new talent on the French Drum’n’Bass scene, DJ Flow used to be a respected reggae dub select before diving into jungle/drum’nbass in 1994 @ the Notting Hill Carnival.
In 1996, a monthly residency in Rennes electro bar “Le Chantier” starts of his career as a Drum’n’Bass DJ. Since then, he has built strong basis for a promising future.
Founder of the respected Suburban DJ collective, DJ Flow has been resident of the massive Suburban parties since 1999 (held by NuLevel organization @ UBU club, Rennes).
He has also been getting booked at the biggest French electronic events (Festival Astropolis, Technoparade, Transmusicales, Nordik Impact..) and bombed dance floors of the main D’n’B clubs (@ Rex Club, Batofar, Divan du Monde, Cabaret Sauvage, Flèche dOr, OPA, Glazart, Tryptique @ Paris // 4sans, Nautilus @ Bordeaux // Roxtore @ Montpellier // Ubu Club @ Rennes // Terminal Export @ Nancy // Espace Julien & Cabaret Rouge @ Marseille // Bikini @ Toulouse and many more).
Flow’s awesome sets at Suburban & his ability to bomb a dancefloor in a minute lead him abroad, to spread his style in countries such as Belgium (DrumnBass Session @ La Chapelle – Liège), Switzerland (@ Sommer Casino, lUsine), Holland (@ Effenaar), Austria (@ Arena), Spain (@ Sala Pagoa), or even UK !!! Quite unusual for a “froggy”, he’s one of the few French Drum’n’Bass artists that big Drum’n’Bass promoters trust in. Quickly after his first UK residencies (WASTED and FDT parties in Portsmouth), the “Frenchy” gets quickly to the higher level.
First slot with Matrix (Ocean Room @ Brighton) then Flow got his big time playing for the Moving Shadow Tour (Concorde @ Brighton) alongside Technical Itch, Dom & Roland, EZ Rollers. A last minute no show allowed him to come back for another set, rinsin’ out a packed dancefloor until the end of the night.
The freshness of his mix, his amazing technical skills, his musical sensitivity and his productions on some of the best D&B labels are largely acknowledged. With his name getting bigger within the scene in France & U.K., Euro D’n’B promoters & UK DJ / Producers are sending him unreleased tracks to cut dub-plates, which make his DJ sets even more exclusive !
FLOW lived in England for more than 2 years, hangin’ around at Airtight studios (Chichester) where he learned production skills with DJ/producers from South East coast (Stakka, Friction…). He worked on several collaborations with different artists (Lynx, Jarman a.k.a. Raiden…) and signed his first tracks on renowned labels such as Renegade Recordings, Renegade Hardware, Nu Directions & Touchin Down Productions – a new label set for big things in 2004 – and on French labels such as B:CUTS and Underpressure Rec.
Deeply attached to England, Dj Flow is still on very good terms with producers like Friction, Skinny, Stakka, Universal Project and the Airtight Studios.
He is now supported by Hardcore Session.
New collaborations, solos projects: Dj Flow still holds for us many surprises!
