Dub Phizix Bio

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 respected labels such as Exit, Soul:R, Critical, Samurai Music, Commercial Suicide, Dispatch and Ingredients with Mixmag calling his music ‘Essential material’. His remix portfolio is also impressive with reworks for Atlantic Records (Charli XCX), Hospital Records (Netsky), Panjabi MC, Skittles, Chimpo, and 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. A rare vocal treat in Drum and Bass, ‘Marka’ marries dancehall like rhythms with Strategy’s unintelligible but potent rhymes. Having reached 2 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.

What sets Dub Phizix apart from most other drum’n’bass acts, is that his music has great crossover appeal and is played nightly by a wide range of high profile DJs such as David Rodigan, Skream, Toddla T, Shy FX, Mary Anne Hobbs, Zane Lowe, Andy C, Chase & Status, Mista Jam, dBridge, Goldie, Marky, Fabio, Marcus Intalex, S.P.Y, Breakage, Spectrasoul and many more.

Although he may be a fresh face to many, Dub Phizix’ DJ sets always display his depth of knowledge of what makes a great Drum and Bass tune, mixing up often neglected classics with the freshest upfront material.

Strategy Bio

Having been a major player in the UK Hip-Hop scene, as a member of Broke’n’£nglish, MC Strategy performed alongside, and garnered props from, some of the biggest artists in the game – the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes and many more. His ability to rhyme on the spot is on a par with any freestyler on the globe; long recognised as one of the finest spitters the UK has ever produced.

The last few years have seen him evolve and adapt to the ever-changing UK Music scene where he’s been a resident at Manchester’s HIT&RUN as well as making regular appearances at clubbing institutions like Fabric, Hospitality, Outlook and Warehouse Project during breaks from his Europe-wide touring schedule.

The track “Marka” with long-time collaborator Dub Phizix, and Skeptical has been championed by the likes of Sir David Rodigan, Mistajam, Friction, Goldie and many more; but he is no-one trick pony, and plenty more tracks are in the pipeline. He also works increasingly as a mentor to a lot of the North’s young talent, and his recently revived label Estate Recordings is now the home to a cluster of seriously talented artists.
