"Cubase provides enough features for me to do whatever I want within a production, from complex automation, to easy side chaining and routing options, nothing is unachievable. The new VST effects and instruments that come standard with Cubase 6 are amazing!"
Drawing inspiration from legendary producers such as Battlecat, Pete Rock and the late J-Dilla, M-Phazes has formulated his own sound over the years that can be defined by soulful melodies coupled with loose, smacking drums. Landing his first U.S. placement 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, an event that's held annually in Phoenix, Arizona. M-Phazes' production was judged by a panel of legendary producers and artists that consisted of DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Swizz Beats, DJ Toomp, No I.D, Hi-Tek, Don Cannon, Chamillionaire and of course, Sha Money.
Since the One Stop, M-Phazes has received an Aria Award and a gold record for his production on Bliss N Eso's "Flying Colors album, has had his production featured on two college chart topping singles, has signed a landmark deal with Mushroom Publishing and has landed several placements, including a major label placement with Amerie (Feenix Rising Entertainment/Island Def Jam Music Group) as well as a co-production credit alongside super producer JR Rotem (Belugah Heights) for his artist Mann.
To date, M-Phazes has built a very strong discography that includes placements with several key players in today's hip-hop marketplace that include Pharoahe Monch, CL Smooth, M.O.P., Mela Machinko, Royce Da 5'9", Emilio Rojas, Heltah Skeltah, Donny Goines, Cory Gunz, Elzhi (Slum Village), Freeway, Marvin Priest (son of Maxi Priest), Termanology, Sean Price, Sadat X and more.
