At only 18 years of age this Manchester-based producer has been churning out his genre-smashing dubstep experiments at such an alarming rate that he was already able to give away a Volume 1 compilation of his tracks in December last year. Numan’s eagerness to explore, experiment and invert the expectations of a Dubstep producer are going a long way to keeping the scene fresh; something that didn’t go unoticed last year when Planet Mu, advocates of the abstract in all things bassy released his first EP. While yearly lists subconsiously coerce us into faithwhether obsessions with artists, Numan is one who requires us to check back on ourselves. Fact declared him to be one of their ten producers to watch in 2010 but considering the fruits of last year’s labour he’s a guy not to take your eyes off in 2011. He hasn’t even started djing out yet and considering the livliness of his OM mix that’s something we’ve all got to look forward to.
