We chat to Dance Stage headliner Sub Focus...
From his beginnings as a bedroom DJ five years ago, to headlining the Glade Stage at Glastonbury, Nick Douwma, better known as Sub Focus, has become of the most interesting, innovative and important voices working in British electronic music today. Douwma has created compositions for Chase & Status and Example, remixed The Prodigy, Deadmau5 and Dizzee Rascal, and his own tracks have won him a legion of fans in the form of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Grooverider and Mistajam. His second solo album, as yet untitled, will further propel him into the realms of both credible notoriety and mainstream success - no easy feat! Make sure you are there for what promises to be an incredible Dance Stage headline slot this summer...
