M-Phazes vows to get crowd movin' and groovin' at summer festival

GOTYE, Wu-Tang Clan, Kimbra, Talib Kweli, Bliss n Eso, 360, Phrase and Eskimo Joe all have one thing in common.

They've worked with Melbourne DJ and producer M-Phazes.

Not only does he sell out shows while providing the back beat for Aussie hip-hop artist Illy, but he's also supported Australian tours with Eminem and Lil Wayne.

The double ARIA award-winning DJ will hit Launceston alongside a list of some of the country's biggest up-and-coming acts at next weekend's Summer Break Festival.

M-Phazes said people could expect to move.

"I'll definitely try and get the crowd partying, rather than just standing and watching me," he said.

"I'll be playing a lot of well-known songs and some of my own stuff - remixes, mashups and what not. I like to please everyone."

It's a chance to see him deliver a DJ set before he returns to support Illy at March's Breath of Life Festival.

"It's hard to compare the two, Illy's shows are awesome now that he has a bit of a rep. I usually get most of the hard work done before any tours, so I can just set up and have the songs flow together," M-Phazes said.

His own mashups, remixes and flips will also be thrown in to spice up the mix at the Launceston Rugby Club on January 27, and will headline alongside Melbourne's Airwolf, Alta and Dizz1.
