Josh Warren AKA ‘Bizzle’ & 'Elasticity' has always held a passion for anything broken and electronic. Hoarding broken electronic toys from age six, he was always unsure what attracted him to the distorted beats and bleeps these things made .The years grew longer but his interest in broken electronic things did not. His passion was only fully realised while, out collecting abandoned walkmans from garage sales, he discovered an early Prodigy tape. At age 16, he commandeered a set turntables to further explore this new sound.
This journey soon exposed him to the likes of breaks pioneers Krafty Kuts, B.L.I.M, Plump DJs and Stanton Warriors to mention just a few. Well and truly hooked by the early noughties, the progression to vinyl junky was complete and a new addiction cemented.
Over the last eleven years, Bizzle has performed alongside a range of headliners including Lee Coombs, Martin Horger, Plaza de Funk, Dysphemic & Ms Eliza, Stickybuds, Diistoriion, Hedflux, Far too Loud, Mr Bill and Mustard Tiger. Still, his thirst is not sated, and recent notable shows include Defqon 1, Ponies (NZ), Discombobulation (NZ), Lucid Labarynth, Melting Moments, Secret Sessions, Psyland Before Time, Dragon Dreaming, Time is Now, Tribal Rhythms and Halcyon.
Meanwhile, the adventure towards music production is well underway, he is currently expanding his fascination with fragmented beats in the studio on a regular basis.
Bizzle is widely known as one of the friendliest and down to earth people stomping around the east coast party scene. His sets are a lesson in what a decade of mixing will do to an already naturally talented musician. He is a always a punter first and foremost, and a dancefloor addict from way back who loves the futuristic breakbeat sound above all.
