In 2001 Threnody tuned into the brand new sounds of dubstep and was a pioneer of the dark dubstep sound. Early releases on Rottun, Combat and Creative Space drew the template for many others to follow. Following his early experiments with heavy halfstep he emerged as a key player in the breakstep scene pushing a hybrid of breaks, grime and dubstep which culminated in releases on Urban Graffiti, Red Volume, Furioso and his own imprint UK Trends which was formed in 2009.
2011 saw the release of his debut album on UK Trends. The album was characterised by glitch sounds, huge bass and a deep atmosphere that tied the tracks together. Critical acclaim came from Mixmag and multiple blogs as well as the tracks getting supported on BBC 1xtra & XFM. In 2013 there are a releases forthcoming on Big Dada, B.YRSLF, and his 2nd album for UK Trends.
