A veteran of the dubstep scene since it’s inception in early 2003, you couldn’t get better credentials for being a dubstep legend than Cyrus. Born and raised in the home of dubstep, Croydon (UK), home to fellow pioneers Skream, Benny ill and Benga. Indeed his story is almost identikit to his peers; djing drum and bass and then garage, honing his skills on pirate radio and local club residencies, the then 18-year-old got hooked on making music and had early success drawing major label interest. From there, Cyrus decided to shun the expensive professional route realizing he could get his own unique sound with a DIY set up. In 2003/ 04 with limited places to release his dark, brooding, boundary pushing take on UK Garage, Cyrus started his Random Trio Production imprint and launched the Lost City Ep, a track Hyperdub head honcho, Kode 9, battered at dubstep institution Forward. Having found a sound he could call his own, Cyrus’s perseverance paid off landing a regular slot on legendary pirate Rinse FM in 2004, and alongside Hatcha and Kode 9, was one of the only DJ pushing the dubstep sound. Perfectly placed, there was no shortage of interest in his sound. Cyrus’s brutally minimalistic, hypnotic and cavernous sound is beautifully captured on his critically acclaimed album From The Shadows on Pinch’s Tectonic label. Further releases with Chestplate and Deep medi have helped to cement his reputation as a key producer. And, It was no surprise when one of his more cinematic tracks featured in a major film. Indian Stomp appeared alongside Digital Mystikz and Kode 9, and also rather impressively, John Lennon, on the soundtrack for Children of Men. “The track was originally to be used in a hit US TV show, so to be told it was gonna be used in a blockbuster film was surreal.” A main fixture at all the top dubstep nights - DMZ, Sub Dub, FWD - Cyrus has also DJ’d the world over and the desire for his sub atomic bass weight is constantly in demand. In August 2008, he was asked to be part of Mary Anne Hobbs prestigious Generation Bass show on international BBC Radio One, a vital and important platform for dubstep. With regular Shows on London's Kiss fm and more recently being added to the bbc radio 1 xtra "daily dose of dubstep" rosta with the full chestplate family. Cyrus continues to support and release the best in underground 'dubstep' music.
