Biography

Whetu Kay aka Phetsta was introduced to the D & B sound during his final year of High School in 2000 after relocating from New Zealand to Perth, Australia. Tracks such as Ed Rush & Optical’s “Locuste”, BC’s “Inside the Machine” and Konflict’s releases on RenegadeHardware instantly appealed to him. The following year he started producing his own tracks and never looked back. After writing solo and DJ’ing around Perth, he joined forces with Ross Deschamp aka Rregula (former guitarist of WAMI Award winning band “The Dirty Whittler”) to form Bad Robot in 2004.

Time was juggled between solo production and Bad Robot for the remainder of 2004. Phetsta linked up with Adelaide’s Djon that same year, remixing his and Skyver’s “Start theRiot”. After a trip to Adelaide and a very messy week of partying the remix ended up catching the ear of Technique’s Bassline Smith who released it on his WAR label in early 2005. Simon was so impressed by the then 21 year olds production skills that he offered him an exclusive contract with Technique Recordings. With his first solo single “The Bloodening” under his belt (not to mention DJ support from the likes of Grooverider, Pendulum, Andy C and Hype), Technique’s HUGE “Street Technique LP” was the next outlet for Phetsta’s tracks. Four tunes, “Blur” (DJ Mags’ tune of the Month - May 2006), “Mako”,”Intergalactic” and “Gimme Somethin’ Remix”, stormed the worlds dancefloors.
