Ben Broughton, aka Phrixus, is a relatively new name in the game. The 20 year old rhythmic wonder-kid has been making heads turn and gathering support from many notable artists, with productions that simultaneously give nods to a wide array of influences such as ghetto house, Miami bass and baltimore club as well as more home-grown sounds like UK funky and grime. His schizophrenic mixing style similarly jumps genre to genre and keeps audiences guessing.
Having started DJing and producing back in 2010, what’s impressive is how much he’s achieved in a short time. Graduating from playing sets around his hometown of Exeter to sharing stages with the likes of Annie Mac, Scratch Perverts and Wen and playing infamous venues such as Sankey’s and Brixton Jamm in just a couple of years, his DJ credentials alone are impressive.
His production career is equally notable. Ben has already signed a whole string of EPs to some of the most respected labels in the UK bass scene, including Sounds of Sumo (Kry Wolf’s Label), Saucy Records and Certified Bangers, with more releases already in the pipeline for next year. He has seen premieres on Skrillex’s blog, NestHQ, as well as hugely recognised online magazine Soundspace. He has seen rotation on Radio 1, 1Xtra, Rinsefm, Capitalfm and Radar Radio and support from some of the most recognisable names in the scene: Claude VonStroke, Sinden, Liar, Monki to name but a few.
Outside of making and playing his own music, Ben hosts an annual DJing workshop at his old hometown college in Exeter for students aged between 16-18, to introduce them to the fascinating and hugely wide subject of DJing. Through his huge amount of experience from working with Logic Pro X, Ben has also reached Apple Certified Trainer status.
What’s clear here is that Ben is one of the most motivated, hard-working and exciting young artists emerging in the scene. The fact he has achieved so much in so little a time is a clear example of this, although this is just the tip of the iceberg. With much, much more in the way of releases and sets around the UK planned for 2016, Phrixus is bound to be a name which begins to be seen more and more.
