Dirtyphonics: Artist Spotlight
Date: Jul 03, 2012 (Tuesday)By: Ty Allen
With over ten years of production experience, Charly, Thomas, Pho, and Pitchen collaborate on stage to craft some of today’s most profound and inventive musical performances as Dirtyphonics. This Parisian quartet has been blasting crowds with brain-crackling electricity for quite a while now and have only continued to evolve since being awarded the “Best Newcomer Producers” award at the DNB Arena Awards in 2009.
Dirtyphonics’ roots are nestled in the grounds of heavy metal and rock (as so many are) and their live performances are known for being nothing less than an electrically charged instantiation of their beginnings. It is this inferno of energy, combined with an unbelievable collaborative ability to constantly challenge musical customs, which has allowed this group to reside comfortably atop multiple charts and play for the masses, from Glastonbury to the Electric Daisy Carnival—and the masses are only getting bigger.
Dirtyphonics tracks are violently diverse and span from drum & bass origins to more progressive, dubstep-styling and tend to, in their own words, have a beautifully symbiotic relationship with their crowds; i.e. the dirtier they are, the dirtier we play.
We have featured below, a few of their most recent releases, each one exemplifying their powerful diversity in it’s own respect. The Untz is thrilled to present to you, the group that has been known to turn raves into riots: Dirtyphonics, and we hope you all enjoy the sonic soundscape; but before you start, you’ve got to amp up that bass!
