Brighton, United Kingdom
UK producer, Low:r (Ben Downton), was interested in sound from a young age. Starting out playing in bands with instruments, he later moved on to playing music at local parties, Skate competitions and events.
His first DAW was a present from his brother in 2004 and he quickly got into making Electronica and Dub music. This eventually led to his love of minimal Dubstep in 2006.
Over the next three-four years Low:r saved up enough money to cut his own vinyl and self-release three of his tracks — then began making the rounds at record shops to get his cuts sold.
Low:r started producing Drum & Bass in 2011 (under his former name Morah), with fellow producer Locustlung. Together they wrote the techy, 4 track EP, “Sentinel,” which broke into Drum & Bass Arena’s top ten chart and was supported by Phil Tangent.
Low:r’s favourite Djs and producers at present include Logistics, Calyx & Teebee, Alix Perez, Fred V & Grafix, Bonobo and Submotion Orchestra.
