It is the main music project of Scottish-born DJ/Producer Steve Young.
A life-long electronic music enthusiast, Steve has been spinning in clubs and festivals since before he was legally allowed enter them. Starting out in the early 90s golden era of rave, he went from old-skool breaks to nu-skool breaks via happy hardcore and drum & bass, spending all his money on turntables, mixers and vinyl while changing his DJ name more often than his underwear.
In the early naughties he developed a naughty relationship with psychedelic trance. Inspired by it's smooth curves, other-worldly atmospheres, and an unrivalled ability to produce kaleidoscopic visions in the 3rd eye, he endeavoured to step up his production game and synthesize the ultimate heady dance music hybrid: psychedelic breaks!
The debut Hedflux track "Music Is My Weapon" was released in 2008 and this set the archetypal template for the next 5 years of music, during which time he released more than 30 records and performed across the UK, Europe, Australia and America.
Mind of a Scholar // Heart of an Artist
After graduating high school in 1996, Steve went on to obtain a Master of Science (MSci) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in theoretical physics, spending a total of 8 years in higher education while DJing at weekends and dabbling in music production.
Following a brief period of unemployment in 2004 he reluctantly got a "real job" in the financial sector and spent 5 years as a weekend warrior, dreaming of life as a full time artist.
In 2008 a supernatural encounter with an Amazonian plant medicine showed him that pursuing music would be the truest, most honest and authentic path he could follow, bringing the greatest fulfilment and joy.
Armed with little more than that questionable hallucinatory memory and a few grand in the bank, he quit employment in 2010 and launched into full-time status as a DJ, Producer and Music Educator.
For the next 3 years he pumped out tunes and took gigs all over the world, working hard and playing harder, faithfully pressing forward without expectation and teaching everything he learned to his students.
