Coming from an unconventional musical background, L Phonix has been surrounded by creative influences all his life, giving him inspiration from an early age. His mother is reggae star Aisha, who was part of the ARIWA Sounds label run by dub legend Mad Professor. His father “Dubz” is also a great reggae musician, producer and founder of Green Beat music and his uncle “Mighty Jamma” is the UK’s No1 steel band soloist.
L Phonix started djing at various spots around England during the late 90′s. He became more involved with djing and the music industry during the early Millennium. The next natural evolution for L Phonix was to focus his attention towards the production side of the industry. He built himself a base to produce and play his own tracks. The DJ aspect was then put on hold for him to develop his production skills further by releasing material of his own. A progressive spell of original tracks and remixes followed under various labels and under different artistic names.
He then teamed up with another producer called Yllavation with whom a whole new batch of fresh original music and remixes was produced including tracks with other artists such as Slarta John, Inaya Day, Masquerade, Calvin Lynch and many more. He went onto receive great support from some of the UK’s best stations and has featured guest mixes on Kiss FM, BBC Radio Xtra, and Sub FM and support from established DJ’s likes Grant Nelson, Todd Edwards, Wide Boys, DJ pioneer, DJ target, Dream Team and Ras Kwame to name but a few.
