Having already toured Japan, Australia and most of Europe Detboi is no stranger to the scene. 2015 was a huge year for Detboi, releasing his heavyweight ‘Scatter EP’ on Keysound Recordings. The four-track EP saw heavy rotation and presence on Rinse FM, BBC Radio 1 and 1 Xtra. Scatter EP is a firm assimilation of sounds Detboi has come to emulate. Early Hardcore and Jungle, mutated into the tempos of house, garage and techno are mutations he creates and morphs with ease.
Amongst the many highs of 2015, Detboi fulfilled a dream appearing on XL recordings. The remix of ‘Damage’ for Special Request appeared on his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. 2016 also saw Detboi fulfil another life long dream releasing on Metalheadz. The very sound and soul of the label is easily identifiable through his music, right to his core. Detboi reached a career-high by collaborating with Goldie on his first release ‘Joyride’. In 2017 he scored a top 10 UK Vinyl Singles Chart hit with thuggish knuckle-dragging ‘Secret Venom’.
2018 saw another Uk Vinyl Chart hit with his ‘Ice Cold EP’ on Metalheadz offering a hybrid of liquid funk and techstep. Whilst his sound offers explosions of old-skool breakbeats, injected with angelic vocals that glimmer into cinematic darkness, it sets a vision of the ‘Headz’ sound that’s both past and the future. It’s this attitude that constantly sees Detboi challenging tempos and linear DnB landscapes.
2021 has seen him remix the stone-cold classic ‘Drum trip’ for Kaotic Chemistry as part of the 25 Years of Metalheadz series. Detboi is currently putting the finishing touches to his first solo album on Metalheadz. An EP for Over/Shadow is also slated. Pounding kick drums, thrashing breaks and ghostly howls best describes Detboi’s onslaught of 130bpm jungle-inspired mutations and 170bpm explosions.
