Dub Phizix is the Manchester based Drum and Bass producer George Ovens. Dub Phizix began his obsession with music over 20 years ago when he 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, Samurai Music, Commercial Suicide, Dispatch and Ingredients 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), Panjabi MC, Skittles, Chimpo and more.
2011 saw the total domination of the Drum & Bass scene from a tune called 'Marka', penned by Dub Phizix alongside regular collaborator Skeptical with guest vocals from Strategy of Broke'n'English. A rare vocal treat in Drum and Bass, Marka marries grime and 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 & 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.
In just a short 12 month period we have seen Dub Phizix traversing the globe and taking his unique sound to all six continents, including shows in across India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand 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 Dimensions, Outlook, Sun and Bass, Boomtown and more. His schedule for 2013 includes even more bookings alongside Strategy at some of Europe's biggest events.
Dub Phizix begins 2013 with another high profile single for Exit Records in the form of 'I'm A Creator' alongside fellow Mancunian wordsmith Skittles. More music is to come in 2013 from Soul:r, Tru Thoughts, Metalheadz, MTA and Ingredients.
