LS-Live in a state of Flux

Dubstep Producer and DJ Flux Pavilion has been touring the UK with a state-of-the-art DJ booth custom made by stage and set rental company LS-Live.

 

Nominated for the BBC Sound of 2012, Flux Pavilion’s songs (like 2011’s ‘Bass Cannon’) and remixes have seen him grow in stature over the last five years to become one of dubstep’s most notable artists. Following a string of festival shows this summer, he scheduled a stretch of U.S. dates prior to the 11-date Freeway Tour in November and December, which mainly hit O2 Academy venues from Newcastle to Bournemouth.

 

Dean Graves from Bigabox Productions approached LS-Live to design and build the DJ booth for Flux Pavilion for his U.S. and UK shows, working to an initial design sketch.

 

LS-Live has previously designed DJ performance platforms for the likes of Tinie Tempah, Ibiza Rocks, Swedish House Mafia and Andy C.

 

Occupying a staging and automation rental warehouse in Wakefield, alongside an arena-sized rehearsal studio, the company’s specialist design, fabrication and set construction team are able to combine off-the-shelf hire equipment with custom elements and lighting installations to create one-off sets for added impact on stage.

 

Said LS-Live Hire Co-Ordinator Jess Woodward: “The DJ booth is based on standard 8’ by 2’ LiteDecks from our rental stock, but we’ve created special frames and paneling for the front fitted with DMX controllable, colour-changing LED strips.

 

“Where the decks sit we’ve created a transparent surface which is lit by white lighting beneath so that the LD can call up dramatic lighting effects on stage.”

 

Said Dean Graves, Director, Bigabox Productions: "As ever I was very impressed with the level of service I received from LS-Live. They were very accommodating on site and kept me closely informed throughout the project, responding quickly to any tweaks that were required.

 

“They are a can-do company which is why I continually go to them for bespoke set pieces like the Flux Pavilion DJ booth."
