The creator of a new style of Drum and Bass music that fuses influences from all corners of the globe. Manchester based Drum & Bass producer Dub Phizix began his obsession with music over 20 years ago. By 10 years into his career, Dub Phizix was an accomplished producer having made music in a variety of styles for MTV, BBC and Nokia, releasing music on his own SenkaSonic label and other respected outlets such as Exit, Soul:R, Metalheadz and Critical. His remix portfolio is also impressive with reworks for Hospital Records, Panjabi MC, Sizzla, and more. 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.
Raised on the Costa Del Salford and honing his craft in some of Manchester’s most notorious nightclubs, STraTS has made contributions right across the board when it comes to UK music. From his part in Broke’N’£nglish alongside fellow northerners DRS and Konny Kon who shared stage and studio time with names such as the Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Roots Manuva, Snoop Dogg and many more, to his work in the UK bass music scene collaborating with and hosting for artists Dub Phizix, Mala, Zed Bias and Calibre to name but a few… Known for his adaptability, Strategy has done it all, from being rap battle finalist at Earls Court London at the Jay Z concert, to performing with Digital Mystikz at Northern Bass Festival in New Zealand. His ability to rhyme on the spot is on a par with any freestyler on the globe. In a short amount of time, he has ended up with regular work at clubbing institutions like Fabric, Soul:ution, Outlook Festival and Warehouse Project, as well as a busy world-wide touring schedule. With a shed-load of new music on the way and a new BBC Radio 1 residency alongside Dub Phizix, 2016 and beyond is looking good for our STraTS.
