Get to know B-Fix a little more:
1. Tell us about your style of music...
I love to create tracks which strike an emotional chord with the listener whether I am producing pop, future bass or house. I don’t like producing just one genre and take my influences from many different big artists such as Joel Corry, Illenium, Sam Feldt, EDX, Meduza and Claptone.
2. What makes a set by you unique?
As a multi-genre, open format DJ, it would have to be my collection and production of edits and mashups along with a emphasis in crowd interaction. I love playing those tracks that no other DJ plays or different versions to ensure that the crowd immediately knows that they are getting a different experience when there is a change in DJ. I also play guitar, & drum pads in my live sets.
3. What's your guaranteed floor-filler?
'You Can Call Me Al (M1 Remix)' is my go to track to get the dance floor started early in the night and then later in the night 'Do It To It' gets the crowd ready before I drop something dirty and hard.
4. You have to step away from the booth for a break, what's your go-to long song?
During chillout sets its the 8 minute version of 'The Veldt' by Deadmau5 and for club sets I very rarely leave the booth, and depends on what I’m playing but either 'Move Your Body' by Marshall Jefferson & Solardo or one of my edits that I know will keep the dancefloor going for an extended period.
5. What would be your ultimate music collaboration?
For Production it would be: Illenium, MK, Don Diablo, Sam Feldt, Laidback Luke, Two Friends, Tritonal, Kaskade, Zedd
Songwriting wise: Annika Wells, Halsey, Ryan Tedder, Benjamin Burnley
6. What is the most rewarding part of being a DJ?
It's the true ravers and music fans who come in and truly appreciate good music and look for something that isn’t just a repeat of what is on the radio. Seeing them have a great time and knowing you made their night memorable is very rewarding.
7. Can you share any tips for people who want to become a DJ?
Be humble, don’t get bogged down in club politics, contextualise your career beyond your city by thinking big and for the love of god…be unique.
