M-Phazes

M-Phazes is the personified example of a diamond in the rough. Born and raised in the Gold Coast of Australia, isolated from Hip-Hop, M-Phazes spent hours in his bedroom meticulously perfecting his signature sound. Drawing inspiration from legendary producers such as Battlecat, Pete Rock and the late J-Dilla, M-Phazes’ style is best described as soulful
melodies coupled with loose, smacking drums.

Landing his first U.S. placement in 2005 on Supastition’s “Chain Letters”, M-Phazes has been on a steady climb and hasn't looked back. In March of 2008, M-Phazes earned himself a first place victory at Sha Money's prestigious One Stop Shop Producers Conference Beat Battle, an event that's held annually in Phoenix, Arizona. M-Phazes' production was judged by a panel of eminent producers such as DJ Premier (Christina Aguilera), Swizz Beats (Jay Z, Kayne West), Sha Money and Denaun Porter (Eminem) to name a few.

“M-Phazes blew me away with his sound” – Jake One (Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, 50 Cent)

Since moving to Melbourne in 2008, M-Phazes has appeared simply unstoppable. Aside from landing production credits on almost every major Hip-Hop release in Australia, M-Phazes released his debut album “Good Gracious” in April 2010 through Obese Records that would later earn him the coveted 2010 Aria Award for Best Urban Release. Foreseeably, this was
only the beginning for the Gold Coast beat-smith.

To date, M-Phazes has compiled an outstanding discography that includes placements with a plethora of artists including Grammy Award winner Amerie, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Redman as well as Hip-Hop legends CL Smooth, M.O.P. and Eric Sermon. Plus his hometown pedigree is second to none having landed cuts with a wide variety of Australian artists such as Drapht, Bliss N Eso, 360, Illy, Eskimo Joe, Gotye and Australia’s newest female superstar Kimbra. Outside of his production work, M-Phazes is a highly sought after DJ, having toured Australia alongside artists such as Eminem, Lil Wayne & Wu Tang Clan.

M-Phazes is living proof that no matter where you're from, your music can make an impact on the world. As his dreams become a reality, M-Phazes places no boundaries on his craft that sees him working alongside artists that define today’s music culture.
