@ BACKSTAGE Live
from 10.30pm -5am
To start the new year of 2009 with the deeper side of drum & bass, Kongkretebass is proud to present Lynx (Soul:r, Creative Source, 31 Records, Digital Soundboy, Bingo/ UK). Described as one of the freshest sounds to come out of drum and bass music, Lynx is no stranger to the big tunes and big stages.
Since emerging at the forefront of the drum and bass scene in 2007, Lynx has established a reputation for high quality productions with an innovative edge and DJ sets to match. Soul:r, Creative Source, Digital Soundboy and Bingo are just some of the leading labels he’s released music on and are proof that his sound is not only fresh but also diverse.
Reinventing drum and bass from the ground up, Lynx’s funk-fuelled sets have gained a reputation for smashing stereotypes as well as dancefloors and, like his productions, appeal to clubbers across the spectrum. With massive tracks including ‘Disco Dodo’ and ‘Global Enemies’ under his belt, Lynx has clearly demonstrated he’s not afraid to break the mould whilst staying true to his distinctive style.
‘The Raw Truth’ is his forthcoming & highly anticipated debut album in collaboration with Kemo MC, showcasing a potent mix of beats, rhymes and basslines. Don’t miss Lynx’s Hong Kong debut performance!
Joining the lineup will be our friend and “soldier of positivity”, the talented vocalist MC DIDJELIRIUM (Shanghai, Tahiti).

With a long list of high-profile patrons including Marcus Intalex (Soul:r), Fabio (Creative Source), Shy FX (Digital Soundboy) and Zinc (Bingo), it’s no surprise that Lynx has risen quickly through the ranks to become one of the most in demand DJs in drum and bass . Bursting back on to the scene in 2006 with a fresh and infectious sound, it would be easy to overlook the many years of groundwork spent honing his skills with early releases on labels including Underfire, Audio Blueprint and Renegade Recordings. Lynx has since made music his profession, as well as his passion, and helps run a commercial studio, producing for a range of artists involved in other music genres. He’s already left his mark in the drum and bass scene, however, and raised the bar for creative and innovative production whilst keeping the dancefloor in firm focus.
Portsmouth-born Steve Nobes, aka Lynx, had his first release at the tender age of 17, back in 1996 with Southampton-based Hardcore pioneers, Ramos, Supreme and Sunset Regime. A career in music beckoned and he set about racking up many years of commercial studio experience plus a Masters degree in Audio Technology, learning his trade and developing the skills to take his sound further. Starting with work experience at Chichester based studio ‘Airtight’, Lynx worked alongside the likes of Friction, Mampi Swift, Stakka, Skynet, and Skinny where he demonstrated a hard-working attitude plus a natural aptitude at the controls and earned himself the position of co-managing the studio.
From his musical beginnings producing hardcore, in 2002 Lynx moved into the new, techno-infused wave of drum and bass and racked up a string of releases with Brighton based labels Underfire Recordings and Audio Blueprint (Stakka & Skynet). Tracks such as ‘Meltin Pot’ and ‘Special Agent’ were championed by Andy C, Ed Rush & Optical, Shimon and Kemal. Keen to progress and diversify his sound, Lynx collaborated with popular French DJ Flow to produce ‘Time-Out’ (Renegade Recordings, 2002). The track appeared on the first ‘Renegade Rollers’ compilation and proved a firm favourite with Radio 1’s Fabio and the legendary John Peel , giving Lynx confidence in his ability to capture the essence of a musical genre and produce drum and bass across the musical spectrum.
Drawing inspiration from other sounds across the club scene, Lynx has since forged a style that continues to evolve, combining influences from rock to reggae and electro to hiphop. He’s already torn up the template with the massive ‘Disco Dodo’ (Creative Source) and went on to make 2007 his year with the standout successes, ‘Global Enemies’ and ‘Carnivale’ (Soul:r) alongside Kemo MC . From the deep and rolling vibes of ‘Shaku’ (Digital Soundboy) to the bold and brassy funk of ‘Randy’ (Soul:r), Lynx has already crossed a range of styles and demonstrated there are many more strings to his bow. A keen collaborator, Lynx has produced alongside Alix Perez, Maple, Malibu Rhodes, Aaron Jay and more and has a talent for drawing the best from himself plus the artist he’s working with.
In the words of Marcus Intalex, “attention to detail is his trademark” and Lynx makes this clear across his debut LP with Kemo MC, ‘The Raw Truth’ - forthcoming in February 2009. Together with Kemo MC, plus MC DRS and guest vocalists, Lynx has taken their album on tour following a sensational live show at Sardinia’s Sun and Bass festival in 2008. Lynx has also joined the Soul:r roster, alongside legends such as Calibre, Marcus Intalex and ST Files, and is available for bookings on label nights too.
Combining his deep passion for funk, rock, soul, jazz and world music with the technical ability to realise his ideas, Lynx’s music comes from the heart. Always one step ahead of the herd with a selection fresher than most, Lynx continues to set the pace.
