Subb-an’s rapid rise to prominence as a DJ, producer and one of the most exiting new British live acts of recent years is testament to his hard work, natural talent and wholehearted commitment to electronic music. This success hasn’t been earned overnight. At just 23 years old, Ashique ‘Subb-an’ Subhan has done much more in his career in dance music than many artists twice his age. In 2005, Subb-an landed a residency at Below, one of the UK’s most cherished underground clubbing institutions. Over the last six years Below has seen the likes of Sven Vath, Loco Dice, Dinky, Jamie Jones and Sebo K headlining sold out parties that continue to draw crowds of clued-clubbers from all over the UK.
Subb-an’s discography reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of underground house and techno’s biggest labels with his forthcoming release on Crosstown Rebels, Spectral and Culprit backed up by past hits on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations, Mothership, Leftroom, BPitch Control, 2020 Vision, Trapez Ltd. In 2009, Subb-an and Adam Shelton set up their own ‘One Records’ label as a platform for their own productions alongside tracks from other respected artists. Building on his long standing residency at Below, Subb-an has gone on to play at The Weekend Club (Berlin), 2010′s Glastonbury Festival, The Electric Pickle (Miami), The Harry Klein (Munich), Hot Natured at Sonar (Barcelona), The Garden Festival (Croatia), Lo*Kee (London), and at The Warehouse Project (Manchester).
With his upcoming releases on Crosstown Rebels, Spectral Sound and 2020 Vision due to land next spring, 2011 should be a defining year in Subb-an’s already hugely promising career.
