LUSH describes his sound as Jungle Music at 128, 140 and 175 bpm. Sounds crazy? Maybe… but with Lush the single most dominant trend over his 18 years of DJing has been unbridled passion for the music that he plays.
Widely known and respected as a Jungle/DnB DJ, Lush has been a “student” of the art of DJing and a follower of the Hardcore Continuum from Hardcore thru to Jungle, into Drum & Bass; and forward into the current genre less mutations of House and Funky. For Lush there are no longer any clear cut genres, only tempos. He scans the whole underground spectrum drawing from house, techno, deep, tech, tribal, grime and funky to find the musical pieces to his puzzle, the underlying theme always being feeling and soul with a heavy Junglist leaning and room shattering bass!
Whatever style Lush chooses to play, he approaches it all with the same enthusiasm and razor sharp precision.

When XI plays, people listen. He does not discriminate. The point of his musical output, be it his own productions or his performances, is to encapsulate the very best in experimental bass and drive it home. All killer, no filler.
