Manchester-based producer xxxy (born Rupert Taylor) is known for refining the propulsive, foot-forward sound of UK garage. Currently he’s signed to various labels. Over the past year he has been quietly building a solid reputation with milestone releases on Infrasonics and Fortified Audio, as well as featuring on the seminal Fabric compilation “Elevator Music”. With further releases set to come on labels such as Doc Daneeka’s Ten Thousand Yen and Well Rounded, and a host of UK and European shows - it’s little doubt that xxxy will leave a lasting impression on the UK underground.
He used to go by the name Forensix (mcr), or simply forensix. The “mcr” stood for Manchester, since there was already a dubstep artist by the name of Forensics on the scene.
