CareerEdit

B-Complex began producing music in 1996 at the age of 12, being mainly interested in hardcore, trance, and psytrance, moving on to downtempo and hip hop.[4] Following this period, she shifted to drum and bass, with the intention of creating a unique personal style.[5]

The artist's first major label release was "Beautiful Lies", which appeared on the compilation Sick Music from Hospital Records.[6][7] The compilation went on to reach the top 30 on the iTunes UK Download Chart, and was in the top 5 on the Beatport Drum and Bass Chart. Her first UK show was in September 2009 at Matter nightclub in London, for a Hospitality night.[2] She started to use a female version of her name in 2015.[8][9]
