PLASTICIAN ('The Other Side Of Plastic' set)

Chris Reed, also known as Plastician (formerly Plasticman), is a genuine one-off. An innovator in both dubstep and grime, he was one of the first producers to bridge the two genres: as Plasticman, he appeared on one of the first dubstep releases ever (a 2004 Rephlex compilation confusingly titled 'Grime'), in 2006 he spent 18 months on BBC Radio 1, making him the world's first DJ to have a specialist dubstep and grime radio show on national radio, and he was one of the original group of Croydon producers – alongside Skream and Benga – who first developed the dubstep sound.

He’s had a regular show on Rinse for the last decade, having been invited to join after his tracks started making an impact on both grime and dark garage dancefloors. Not long afterward, he was invited to play at FWD>> for the first time and showcase his sound. “At the time no-one knew what to call what I was playing or making,” he says, “because I was making kind of a grime sound for the dubstep audience". Since then the genres themselves have mutated but, he says, “I still like to bridge between everything. I don’t think my taste has changed much. In my head it’s always the same, I just like what I like.”

We are pleased to welcome Plastician back to Stealth on Friday 12th April to perform an exclusive 'The Other Side Of Plastic' set. We're told he will be delving deep into his record box - so expect an eclectic mix where you're likely to hear anything from House, Disco, Garage, Trap and maybe even some guilty pleasures!
