Greg Marshall AKA Stylus Rex has been a major player on the UK Breakbeat scene for many years, pushing his own brand of Techy, bass heavy, 4/4 and Breaks which has gained him strong releases on Re:Connect, Bijou Beats and the legendary Ground Level records, who oversaw the release of his debut album ‘Amplify’ earlier this year to critical acclaim. His tracks have been supported far and wide by some of the biggest names in Breaks including Annie Nightingale, Kiss Fm’s Jay Cunning, Krafty Kuts and Soul Of Man to name just a few.
Greg took a few minutes out from his hectic schedule to do a short interview with us, to go with an amazing mini promo mix which he has done to support his latest release ‘Colisions’ which appears on our new full length album AUX:TECH:02.
If that wasn’t enough he has also kindly agreed to offer an exclusive free download track!
