With productions always more original, Phazz 22-years-old producer stands out as an young up-and-coming artist of the French and international Hip-hop/Electronic scene.
The French artist compiles an eclectic collection of stirring tracks, each with its own identity & unique vibe attentively created & arranged to depict the story of Phazz's inspired production, motivated by a love of piano from an early age.
Already supported by Plastician in his show on Rinse FM, Cashmere Cat, Just Blaze or even BBC Radio 1, the Lyon based producer is driven by creating contemporary music. His sounds belong as much in the club as they do in the bedroom, oozing with that sexual energy and romantic swagger that made so many of us fall in love with R&B in the early 00s.
Habstrakt & Phazz - Silk
Release Date : 12/15/2014
Adam aka Habstrakt started music as a child when he got introduced to guitar and piano by his family, before turning his hand to samplers and groove-boxes at the age of 13. After years of producing hip hop beats and soundtracks for short movies and theater, he discovers drum'n'bass and Dubstep in local parties in south of France and starts DJing immediately.
Few years later his tracks have conquered the electronic music charts and gained support from the biggest names in the scene, giving him the chance to play shows all over the world. Having established several releases already on respected labels like Dubsaw, Buygore or Never Say Die, and collaborated with Eptic, Culprate or Megalodon, Habstrakt has already marked his territory in the scene with his very unique sound, pushing the boundaries between genres, with influences ranging from Dubstep to old-school Hip hop.
Nothing seems to stop him so far as we recently saw his latest single "Listen" sitting on top of the glitch-hop charts for a month, and it's unlikely this will be his last chart success.

Phazz - Invictus
Release Date : 06/12/2014
Hot, man - Lido
That tune is massive! -Basenji
You're a madman -Ozzie
Cool song, I like it! -Wave Racer
Pffff that chord lead -Ganz
Very cinematic -Stray
Phazz on his beast mode -Stwo
"Not fitting neatly into any preset category, Phazz’s unique sound is not only hard-hitting, but also game-changing. His newest offering, “Invictus,” is a five-minute journey into experimental sound that is nothing short of jaw-dropping. Raw energy and major bass reverb combine into a darkly jarring masterpiece." Nest HQ
"His brand new single “Invictus” oozes with energy and is a sure club banger." Okay Future
Want the perfect track to have a one-night stand in your kitchen to? We recommend “Invictus. -Thump
MONSTER JAM ALERT -Waxhole
"If you have any clue of what genre this falls under please let us know in the comments below. This high energy record seems so serious right off the rip, but just wait til you get to that second drop" Earbuddy
"Blending his French electronic influence with an American hip hop flavor, Phazz is able to produce heavy tracks fit for clubbing, rapping, and anything in between." Casablanca Sunset
"Now, he’s making waves with his new single “Invictus”, a majestic, epic-sounding track filled with bass. The end result is a sexy-yet-foreboding piece that sounds like it could be the soundtrack to a cinematic telling of a heroic journey. The Dankles
"Invictus is an enormously dramatic track that may lay its roots in a slower blend of trap music, but has ultimately acquired a unique feeling. This track is one of the most powerful pieces of electronic music I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to, so I hope this is a sentiment our readers will share." Versace Lettuce
"Une intensité qui donne chaud, une rythmique effrénée qui fait peur et vocaux dans la vibe de Flume, la recette parfaite de ce que Phazz sait nous cuisiner de mieux." BF2D
The beginning is extremely grandiose and ceremonial, something you'd imagine playing during whilst the Last Supper was devoured. The drawn out synth leading up to an incredible change of pace at 0.58 keeps you on board, followed by distorted vocals. At 2.05, Flume's cyber sound-doppelganger is introduced for a future beat party. -Stoney Roads

CNO32 Phazz - Reworks
Tracklist (Click To Listen)
Release Date : 10/03/2013
01 Pharrell Williams ft. Jay-Z - Frontin'
02 Whitney Houston x Mobb Deep - Got It Fine
03 Miguel - Sure Thing
For it's fifth release since the label's inception in August, Cosmonostro presents a collection of spaced-out reworks courtesy of French producer Phazz.
Like the label's earlier Anthony Ellect release, Phazz takes the R&B formula and updates it for the electronic generation, complete with skittering hi-hats and otherworldly pitch-bent vocals, whilst leaving breathing space between the reverb-soaked beats to create the blissed-out magic.
Phazz's sounds belong as much in the club as they do in the bedroom, oozing with that sexual energy and romantic swagger that made so many of us fall in love with R&B in the early 00s. Taking something as familiar as Pharrell & Jay-Z's Frontin and giving it a fresh edge without tainting the power of the original production is a formidable challenge, and can so often go horribly wrong. Yet here Phazz demonstrates his finesse for knowing just how much to add or take away to achieve that enchanting balance.

"That Phazz release is insanely tasty!" -Handbook
"I’m not sure what to really call this genre of music, but if you are looking for something nice and relaxing to chill to, I would definitely start here." Where's The Drop?
Pitching vocals, smokin synthy melodies and the beat that pulsates with suggestive vibes give every tune a wonderful feel at each listen. -Waxhole
The way Phazz just tackles each one of these reworks is admiring. -Trap Style
