In addition to his worldwide DJ schedule, Plastician has released records on labels such as Rephlex Records, Soulja, ROAD, Slimzos, A.R.M.Y. and Southside Dubstars. His musical style connects east London grime to the south London dubstep scenes. Plastician also runs his own label; Terrorythm Recordings. He has a passionate love of chicken and can often be found in south London eateries, Morley's and Mazzi. Plastician also played a big role in putting together the "Cashmere Agency Presents Mr. Grustle & Tha Russian Dubstep LA Embrace The Renaissance Vol.1 Mixed by Dj Plastician."[1][2] mixtape that was released in June 2009.

Plasticman controversy

Plastician came to fame under another moniker: Plasticman. As he gained in popularity, Reed was threatened with legal action by Canadian-British techno artist Richie Hawtin who had prior use right on the name "Plastikman"; this prompted Reed to change his name from Plasticman, to Plastician to avoid any legal tangles.
