Dub Phizix & Strategy
The creator of a new style of Drum and Bass music that fuzes influences from all corners of the globe, Manchester based Drum and Bass producer Dub Phizix began his obsession with music over 20 years ago. At the time Dub Phizix, (or George to his mum) was just someone who annoyed the neighbours. By 10 years into his career of music construction, Dub Phizix was an accomplished producer having made music in a variety of styles for MTV, BBC, Nokia and 4Music. Forward to today and Dub Phizix has released music on high profile and respected labels such as Exit, Soul:R, Critical, Metalheadz, Ingredients and many more with Mixmag calling his music ‘Essential material’. The Dub Phizix remix portfolio is also impressive with reworks for Atlantic Records (Charli XCX), Hospital Records (Netsky), Basement Jaxx, Sizzla, Kelis / Breach and many more. 2011 saw the total domination of the Drum and Bass scene from a tune called ‘Marka’. Penned by Dub Phizix alongside regular collaborator Skeptical with guest vocals from Strategy (of Broke ‘n’ £nglish), ‘Marka’ adhered to no known recent stylistic formulas. Having reached 4 million views on Youtube, 2011 and 2012 will be remembered for the impact ‘Marka’ has had on not just drum and bass, but electronic music in general. Dub Phizix has traversed the globe and taken his unique sound to all six continents including shows and tours across the US, India, China, Brazil, South Africa, Australia and more as well as being one of the most in demand DJ’s across the UK and playing nearly every major city in Europe with appearances at major festivals including Exit, Global Gathering, Outlook, Boomtown and many more.
In 2014 Dub Phizix set up his own imprint, Senkasonic, to provide a home for his own productions and give him full creative control and influence over every aspect of the release. The first SenkaSonic release, Buffalo Charge featuring Strategy, turned heads with it’s unique and award winning video concept and caused widespread damage as a huge festival tune in 2014. November 2015 saw the release of his Fabric Live Mix CD to critical acclaim with Resident Advisor including it in their Top 10 official mixes for the year. He followed that up by starting a BBC Radio 1 residency in January with his partner in crime, Strategy. He’s got a lot up his sleeve for 2016 with more releases on SenkaSonic, more radio shows and more touring the world with his sets crammed full of brand new, exclusive solo productions.
