Releasing his debut album 'Bible Eyes' via the infamous London-based label Night Slugs, Egyptrixx made his name on tracks like 'Everybody Bleeding', and 'The Only Way is Up' - whilst being commissioned to remix the likes of Brodinski, Starkey, Esser, The Aikiu, and having the favour returned by Kingdom and Finnish lot Sharkslayer. With support from massive names like Sinden, Mary Ann Hobbs and New York's Drop The Lime, his new album features lead single ‘Chrysalis Records’ with pop vocals from Canadian band Trust, as well as more broken beat excursions to spacey experimental or techno influenced sounds. Perfecting his Ableton Live sets with an APC 40 MIDI Controller, Korg Kaoss Pad and a microKorg synth/vocoder, Egyptrixx reworks his original tracks live on the fly for a mind-blowing live show. See him next at Beat Redemption's Warehouse Party featuring Bok Bok, Egyptrixx, Eliphino, Leon in East London tonight, Friday 15th April for their Warehouse Party 002.
