SenkaSonic / Exit - UK
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. People love Strategy. 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...everybody knows Strategy. 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; long recognised as one of the finest spitters the UK has ever produced.
