Nick Douwma better known by his stage name Sub Focus, is an English electronic music producer originally from Guildford in Surrey.
Despite being active as a producer since 2003, Nick began to receive attention in the industry when his early release 'X Ray' topped the UK Dance charts and charted at #60 on the single charts in 2005. He continued to produce and record after this music and his 2007 singles 'Time Warp' and 'Rock It' topped the dance charts once again with the latter managing to break into the UK top 40 at #38. Before the release of his debut album he continued to build his reputation by remixing songs from dance heavyweights such as The Prodigy, Deadmau5, Empire of the Sun and Dizzee Rascal.
His debut self titled album was released in October 2009 through RAM Records and included a number of early singles along with new material. The following two singles 'Could This Be Real' and 'Splash' both peaked just outside the top 40 singles chart at #41. In 2010, Sub Focus was a support act for Australian drum & bass band Pendulum on their UK tour to promote their third album Immersion which gained him a greater exposure. The follow up album 'Torus' charted a lot better, peaking at #1 on the UK Dance chart and #11 on the UK album charts. It featured an impressive five top forty singles including his highest chart place to date at #10 with 'Endorphins' featuring Alex Clare.
Sub Focus became a massive name on the UK festival circuit, following the success of 'Torus' he headlined the Radio 1 Dance stage at the Reading and Leeds Festivals 2013. He also put in performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Isle Of Wight and Global Gathering that summer. The continued support of Radio 1 amassed in him headlining the first Radio 1 Xtra Live event in Bournemouth in October 2013 before embarking on his largest headline tour to date.
