Biography

An excellent Double Bass, Piano and Guitar player, Rob Sparx has been writing and DJing dance music since the late 90s. Robs first release in Jan 2004 “Rob the Builder - Can you fix it”, was the start of a wave of drum n bass releases on Twisted Individual’s label’s Grid, Zombie and Up Yours. Rob has also released DNB on Formation records (DJ SS), Propaganda (Generation Dub), Vibez (Subject13) and label/distributor Z-Audio. Never one to be pigeonholed Rob soon experimented with other genres producing breaks, house/electro, trance and dubstep most of which was released by labels associated with Z-Audio. 2007 Rob decided he was going to concentrate mainly writing dubstep as he knew a few of the scene’s key players from growing up near Croydon and loved the creative freedom of dubstep that other genres lack.
