Hedflux is the psychedelic music project of DJ/producer/sound psyentist Steve Young. Originally from Scotland, and immersed in electronic music for more than two decades, Steve started DJing in 1992 and learned music production at home while pursuing an academic interest in Physics and Mathematics. After graduating in 2004 with a PhD in Quantum Physics, he left academia and spent five years working in the tech industry. But during this time, a relentless desire to live from the heart inspired him to finally quit employment in 2010, and embody his musical passion completely.
Combining the rhythmic elements of breaks and techno with the sonic geometries of psytrance, Hedflux has become synonymous with the styles known as “psybreaks” or “psychedelic tech-funk.” He has been a leading figure for a growing group of artists who resonate with the sound, and bringing together people from separate musical scenes. The seminal 2010 track Mindcell exemplifies the style; spending 10 weeks at the top of the Beatport Breaks chart, and becoming the 3rd top selling tune of the year. 'Mindcell' went on to win the Best Track award at the 2011 Breakspoll Awards.
Hedflux has toured extensively across the UK, Europe and Australia for the last five years, and his sound is now diversifying and expanding into more mid-tempo rhythms and grooves. In 2014, he launched his own record label, Luminus Music, and is actively working to bring fresh new talent into the fold through his online tutorials, lectures and workshops.
