Landing a major placement on Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ in 2013, M-Phazes has been moving at an unstoppable pace. He has since scooped up a Billboard Award & 2x platinum plaque for ‘MMLP2’, a platinum plaque for Illy’s smash hit single ‘Tightrope’, a platinum plaque for Bliss n Eso’s album ‘Circus in the Sky’ and another gold plaque for Illy’s album ‘Cinematic’.
Aside from landing production credits on an unprecedented amount of records within Australia, M-Phazes continues to make in-roads overseas, having co-produced Keyshia Cole’s ‘N.L.U. ft. 2 Chainz’ with longtime collaborator S1, not to mention his previous production work for Amerie, Xzibit, Pharoahe Monch and Talib Kweli.
Widely regarded as an artist in his own right, M-Phazes released his critically acclaimed debut solo producer album “Good Gracious” in 2010, which would later earn him the coveted Aria Award for Best Urban Release. The following year M-Phazes stepped out of his comfort zone to co-produce pop-sensation Kimbra’s breakthrough album ‘Vows’, which undoubtedly sparked his experimentation with artists outside of the Urban genre. Now considered a main ‘go-to’ producer, Indie Folk singer Thelma Plum, rockers Eskimo Joe, electronica outfit Hopium and soul vocalist Meg Mac have all enlisted M-Phazes to take their music to the next level.
Consistently pushing the boundaries and trying his hand at new styles, M-Phazes recently formed his first passion project – Camden Arc. Drawing influence from 90s producers like Teddy Riley, Jam & Lewis, DeVante Swing and Timbaland, Camden Arc takes the best parts of RnB and blasts it into the future with hyped synths and thumping drums. Camden Arc’s singles have gathered international acclaim and received an incredible response on Soundcloud.
M-Phazes’ track record of industry accomplishments began from a background of determination. Starting in his Gold Coast bedroom, countless hours were spent meticulously perfecting his sound, and networking with likeminded artists via the Internet – a trait that helped formalize his stellar reputation. Landing his first U.S. collaboration 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 in Phoenix, Arizona and judged by a panel of the world’s finest producers such as DJ Premier (Nas, Gangstarr, Christina Aguilera), Swizz Beats (Jay Z, Kayne West), Sha Money and Denaun Porter (D12, Eminem).
Through his ongoing development of musical exploration, M-Phazes’ sound has flown far beyond the realms of Hip-Hop, taming and perfecting even the most obscure sounding pieces. With such a remarkable list of achievements under his belt, it’s anyone’s guess as to what he’s going to deliver next…
