    Hailing from Melbourne Australia. Cubist featured in Knowledge Magazine’s Top 10 Producers to watch out for in 2010 – ‘After his successful debut release on Blueprint back in 2007 (Live & Let Die / Quiet Star), Australian producer Cubist stepped things up in 2009 with 12″s for Zombie (Memory Lapse / Nautilus) and a split release with Sappo on his Advisory label (Tomorrow). Cubist currently runs Melbourne’s top DnB monthly club night Wobble and presents a weekly show on the Aussie Kiss FM. His latest offering for Allsorts: Walked Out / Every Day has seen much praise from all corners of the scene and all bodes well for 2010′ (Knowledge Magazine). Cubist was also recently quoted ‘Australia’s Best Drum ‘n’ Bass Producer/DJ’. (inthemix.com.au)

    Cubist is now launching his own Label – ‘Colours Recordings’ with Vinyl and Digital Distribution through ST Holdings. His music is supported by Grooverider, DJ Hype, DJ Die, DJ Brockie, Nicky Blackmarket, Doc Scott, Fabio, DJ SS plus many more.

    Cubist (Eden Krumins) grew up in Strathmore, a northern suburb of Melbourne. He started playing Cello at the age of ten and spent the majority of his teenage years skateboarding the streets of Melbourne listening to groups like N.W.A, Extra Prolific, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Iron Butterfly, Santana and The Beatles plus more. Whilst at High School a friend came back from the UK with a CD - ‘Colour’s’ by Adam F. It was the first time he’d heard Drum ‘n’ Bass. Soon after he started collecting vinyl and DJ’ing. After seeing Roni Size and DJ Die perform at ‘The Big Day Out’ in Melbourne and then Reprazent perform at ‘The Palace’ he fell in love with the funky style and sound of Full Cycle. Fast forward a few years and whilst studying Music Performance (cello) at University he got a job working at HMV Records.

    In 2001 Cubist alongside close friend DJ Fiascotec began their Monthly Drum ‘n’ Bass Sessions ‘Audible Level’ at the Carron in Nth Melbourne. Around the same time Cubist was attending the weekly Drum ‘n’ Bass Institution that was ‘Just Rite’ at the Scu Bar. There he was inspired by the smooth mixing and broad tune Selection of DJ Dopebeat alongside the rapid fire vocals of MC Wasp and Dr Sponk. In 2002 Cubist began presenting ‘Cubical Views’ on 3CR and later 3RRR. Fast forward to 2005, Cubist began a new night dedicated to promoting Melbourne Drum ‘n’ Bass and Breaks Producers. ‘Local Lineup’ was help at Bunker Lounge in Swaston St CBD. Brought fresh attention to some of Melbourne’s underground beat headz.

    2007 Cubist was selected to be part of Red Bull Music Academy, Canada. He spent time with Legends Carl Craig, Theo Parrish, Waajeed plus more. Learning the importance of musical individuality. Also, Cubist spend time in the UK with Drum ‘n’ Bass pioneers Generation Dub – Original Sin, Subzero and Jaydan. Releasing his first tune on their Label ‘Blueprint’. He played at the legendary night ‘Subdub’, alongside DJ Steppa and Irration Steppas Soundsystem. Experiencing Irration and Dillinja’s Valve he was shown a World of Custom Soundsystem’s built specifically for Bass Music. Soon after arriving from the UK he crossed paths with Derek Heartical who built one of Australia’s largest Jamaican inspired Soundsystems. The two of them shared a similar passion for vinyl and Bass music. Then in 2007 began the Monthly event Wobble.
