In the past year Phibes has received massive support from Youtube powerhouses Deeprot and have become a leading UK Drum & Bass artists to watch on social media, scooping up huge, positive support from their fans whenever they release. As well as a boast of viral remix hits on their soundcloud in Voodoo People, Paper Planes, Afterglow, Sound of Da Police and Light it up and regular Soundcloud chart topping releases, they have in less than 2 years become the go to for DJS when it comes to remixes in Drum & Bass.
The lads just came back from a successful Festival season and a nationwide Canadian tour with a 22 Show UK Tour to kick off during freshers week. 2017 saw Phibes stand up, 2018 has seen them walking, in 2019 they`ll be no doubt running towards the top of their game.
Owen started life on a very small Sheep farm in Orkney where the only music available was on his wind up radio which he recorded using his Fisher Price tape player, creating radio shows by talking between the tracks. Later in school Owen DJ’ed for school dances and private parties under the Dj name ‘Semtex’.
After school he moved to New Zealand around 2008 and immediately got hooked on D&B and Dubstep. Combined with his first meeting with a proper rig and a collection of festivals he got the bug.
In the last 8 years since returning from NZ Owen has been DJing and running radio stations as host starting with a 3 year running ‘Back To Bassics’ show while at University, only finishing after leaving for a year In Thailand. Playing over there nearly every weekend at a range of venues from secret beach parties to local clubs, on his return and after recovering from a serious medical episode he launched ‘The 59th Degree’ Live Stream service, booking a new local artist every Thursday and running live streamed events across country including recently in Dublin and Amsterdam. Names who have appeared included to name a few Brian BrainStorm, Mr Multiplex, Mrs Magoo and Pulls Up Collective along side 50+ local artists.
At the same time MetraGnome's skill behind the decks has made vast improvements in the last few years and particularly the last year after starting the radio station, supporting Royal T, Flowdan, Kurupt FM, Kilent, Barely Legal and Brian BrainStorm just to name a few. With summer bookings including 9 festival dates and 4 international appearances (Uganda, Dublin, Amsterdam, Utrecht) alongside a huge number of live streams 2017 was a big year for MetraGnome. 2018 is set to break all the records with bookings and streams planned so watch this space.
MTH will be looking for our Wobbly Wildcard of Freshness (DJ) to be a support act, and we will be announcing the competition for this soon.
This will be a banger, be there or be square!
