Few artists embody the term “one-man show” better than Benjamin Stanford, aka Dub FX. For those not familiar with his work, Dub FX is a street performer, recording artist and producer famous for creating intricate and impressive tracks entirely on his own. Using various vocal methods and recording them into devices used for looping and effecting sound, Dub FX can manipulate his voice in incredible ways, creating a layered soundscape in front of the audience. In 2006, as social media was on the rise, Dub FX packed his bags, jumped on a plane and left Melbourne to fulfil his dream of travelling Europe. For Dub FX, his musical talent and street performing was only ever intended as a means of income to fund the adventure. The universe, however, had other plans. "I intended to see as much of the world as I could and get inspired to write an authentic body of music. I could then use that music to shop for a record deal, but I didn't imagine my career could take off while on the trip” – DUB FX
