Dirty B_Beats aka Producer Karl Bennett hails from the East Midlands in the United Kingdom. He was first introduced to Electronic Dance Music in the Early 1980's via early Electro / Breakdance and also early UK electro synth pop music by groups such as New Order, The Human League, Gary Numan and Depeche Mode.

In the early 1990's the local club scene in the East Midlands was purely focused on US / UK House and Garage as pioneered by local superclub 'Venus'. Early club nights that Karl attended included Venus, Renaissance, and local DIY nights. This period massively influenced the 'old skool' garage / house sound which Dirty B_Beats always uses as a basis / reference for his productions.

Dirty B_Beats first started producing and remixing tracks aged 16 (in the early 1990's), tutored in the basics using an Atari ST Cubase Version 1, Kurzweil K2000 Sampling Keyboard (with 7 secs per channel!) and a 24 track mixing desk and an Alessi midiverb. Early productions were restricted to a few tracks produced in a friends studio with no official releases. Dirty B-Beats started learning music production again as a hobby which has steadily developed into an obsession.

The Dirty B_Beats current sound is a mixture of Soulful House, Lounge room Chillout, perfectly blended to give a Future Garage sound with a distinct nod to the past.
