Joshua Steele, better known by his stage name Flux Pavilion, is an English dance music record producer, singer-songwriter, DJ and label owner who has been performing since 2008.
Flux Pavilion has headlined three US tours, two UK tours, and several festival DJ sets, including
Glastonbury, Reading, Coachella, and EDC Vegas. He has also made live performances with Example, Foreign Beggars and Chiddy Bang. Flux has listed his sound to be inspired by The Prodigy and Rusko.
Flux Pavilion co-founded
Circus Records along with childhood friend Doctor P, in 2009 with the backing of D&B pioneer DJ Swan-E and Earl Falconer of [1 ] UB40.
In 2011 he produced the single "Bass Cannon", which peaked at number 56 on the
UK Singles Chart, and was placed on the Radio 1 A-List. Along with Doctor P, Flux Pavilion presented the 2011 compilation album Circus One, to which he contributed four tracks. He is arguably best known for his song "I Can't Stop" from the Lines in Wax EP. In February 2011, Chiddy Bang created a freestyle to the song, which has appeared on their mixtape. In August 2011, the track was sampled by producer Shama "Sak Pase" Joseph for the song " Peanut Butter and Swelly Who Gon Stop Me" by Jay-Z and Kanye West on their collaborative album . Watch the Throne On 5 March 2012, "I Can't Stop" was used in the viral [2 ] Kony 2012 campaign. It was also featured in the 2012 video game , the 2013 film SSX and the trailer for The Great Gatsby Ron Howard's 2013 film starring Rush Chris Hemsworth.
In December 2011, Flux Pavilion was nominated for the BBC's
Sound of 2012 poll, as one of only two independent artists on the longlist. Steele has also sung on multiple tracks for both himself and other artists, including "Voscillate", "Starlight" and "The Scientist". On 28 January 2013, he released his new EP, [3 ] , which was received generally favorably by critics. Blow the Roof One of his songs, "Double Edge", is featured in the 2012 video game [4 ] . On 8 September 2013, Steele announced a new EP to be released in October. Released on 11 November 2013, the Need for Speed: Most Wanted Freeway EP consists of his big hit "Gold Love", which features the vocals of Rosie Oddie, in addition to other featured artists Steve Aoki and Turin Brakes.
He worked on a diverse selection of original tracks and collaborations with
Childish Gambino, Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki and Turin Brakes plus remixing for the likes of Skrillex, Jamiroquai, MIA and DJ Fresh. While most students are thinking about where to go on their gap year, Flux Pavilion was celebrating 'I Can't Stop' being picked as Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record in the World' when at the time he was still living in student halls. Ever since, Flux's music can now be found regularly cropping up in the playlists of MistaJam, Fearne Cotton and Eddy Temple Morris as well as drawing attention from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, The Prodigy, Fat Boy Slim and Christina Aguilera to name a few.
In September 2014, Flux Pavilion was asked by
The Walt Disney Company to remix the theme to Star Wars Rebels in order to market and draw attention to the series.
