Drum and Bass Producer, DJ. Influx UK AKA Gavin Price was born in 1970 in Canning Town, East London, and has been creating music since the age of 9, when he first got his hands on his parent’s music system and began making edits of records onto cassette tapes using the tape pause button. At 11, he used to watch his dad playing guitar in a band, and learnt the bass and guitar by watching. Around 1985, when he was 15, the early wave of hip-hop came to the UK from the USA, and young Influx found himself scratching and mixing on a pair of school-disco turntables set up in his bedroom. This love of vinyl lead to him amassing a huge record collection, encompassing 70’s funk, jazz + soul, and many of the original presses of Chicago House and Detroit Techno. As the rave scene in London and the UK exploded between 1987-89, Influx was right there, going to many of the illegal warehouse parties such as Biology and Energy. He remembers Prodigy’s first live ‘big’ performance at Raindance in Jenkins Lane. Gavin’s first music production was played on the now-defunked Radio London in 1987 by none other than Dave Pearce, who held the weekly hip-hop show. A few years later and Gavin joined hip-hop group ‘Stickya’, who were supported by Tim Westwood with plays on the BBC Radio 1 Rap Show.

Fast forward to 1998, and Gavin had not been making music for a few years. He moved to Miami and there struck up a partnership with the co-founder of Beatcamp, Marco Fabian.
