Eddie Symons is a veteran electronic musician based in the UK, who after releasing on his own Strukur and [d]-tached imprints, made his debut as Bovaflux for the Highpoint Lowlife label back in 2005. Heavily influenced by legendary labels like Warp, Rephlex and Planet-mu, his output has touched on many genres from ambient to breakcore and pretty much everything in between. The centre point throughout has remained a love of bass, beats and most importantly a keen sense of melody. Norman Records described it as “proper electronic music with ideas and ambition” with Future Music recognising it as “clever, personable and ultimately tuneful”.
In recent years he has gone on to work with Recycled Plastics and Detroit Underground, and fuelled by a rediscovery of analogue hardware began moving further into the electro domain. His work under his Nullptr guise drew the attention of scene legends like Chris Smith (CPU) and Alek Stark (Fundamental Records), who both became big supporters of his Optical EP.
Eddie now has a monthly DJ residency with Motherchip Connexion in Cambridge, UK, where together they are on a mission to build up the local electro scene. He has just been putting the finishing touches to a new Nullptr 12” to be released later this year, as well as other unannounced releases. All this has not distracted from his original Bovaflux project, as evidenced by this year’s releases for Berlin based Mindcolormusic. In addition to all this he continues to run [d]-tached records, releasing music from artists including Supersentient Intelligence Construct and Krystal Math.
