It’s been a whirlwind few months for Declan Curran, otherwise known as Fixate.
His debut release, ‘Pum Pum’ / ‘System Malfunction’ on Diffrent Music, came out in August 2014 and immediately caught the ears of the great and good of the electronic music world with it’s discombobulating rhythmical patterns and clever fusion of multiple genres. Support came from DJ’s as diverse as Toddla T, Sam Binga, Alix Perez & dBridge amongst others, and it was the latter who then released two of his collaborations with Manchester’s Chimpo, ‘Bun It’ & ‘Dumb’, on Chimpo’s ‘Out An Bad’ EP.
Following on from the success of these initial tracks, he was tasked with writing his first solo EP for dBridge’s hugely respected, taste-making label Exit Records. The ‘Throwback Therapy’ EP was released in May 2015 to much acclaim, with the 4 tracks demonstrating the wide ranging influences and artistic flair of their creator.
