Biography

Described as “one of the most special and unique artists to come out of the UK” by Hyperdub first lady Ikonika, Manchester’s Illum Sphere has had a busy time since his debut ‘The Incoming EP’ landed in 2009 on hometown label, Fat City. Winning the BBC 1xtra Urban Music Award, invitations to play at LA institution Low End Theory (the second English person to do so after Mary Anne Hobbs) and last year’s Red Bull Music Academy in London, through to remix requests from Martyn, Kuedo, Zed Bias and Warp Records, he has already become one the UK’s most hotly tipped producers, whilst remaining outside the London hype machine. Add to that the gleaming praise given by all those that play his groundbreaking Hoya:Hoya night in Manchester, an EP on Martyn’s 3024 imprint, support from Radiohead front man Thom Yorke, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B and Brainfeeder’s Gaslamp Killer, Lorn, Ras G and Daedelus, 2010 seemed to be the year that Illum Sphere cemented his place among the world’s underground music elite.
