Eindhoven born and London based, Proxima has been involved in music for most of his life. Having initially produced and released Drum & Bass on labels including Renegade Recordings, Frequency and SGN:LTD. He then turned his attention to Dubstep and was quickly taken on board by scene leading label Tempa where he really found his stride, forging a reputation as one of the most talented and exciting up and coming producers in the scene.
With a collection of stand out releases between 2012-2014 including “Formal Junction”, “Lie Detection” and “Thermal Vision”. Building up to his debut album “Alpha” that was released in December 2014 and features collaborations with Shogun Audio star producer (and Proxima’s cousin) Icicle, plus vocals from Dnae, DRS, and P Money as well as the massive opening track “Trapped” which you’re almost certain to have heard rattling the speakers recently.
Since the release of Alpha, Proxima’s attention seems to have been turning back towards Drum & Bass, with 2015 seeing scheduled releases on a Hospital Records compilation, a remix for Shogun Audio, and of course his latest release the hallfstep DnB style single “Crane / Jibber” that just dropped on Australia’s Plasma Audio imprint on October 12th.
Whilst Proxima’s latest output sees a return to Drum & Bass, this mix showcases more of a classic Dubstep sound in keeping with his upcoming appearance as part of Youngsta’s Contact takeover in the Tunnel on Friday 30th October at The Blast Halloween Carnival of the Dead.
