After exploding onto the club scene back in 2007, Phonetix quickly made a name for himself by putting together numerous high quality tracks in varying styles. He is best-known for tracks featured on Ministry Of Sound’s ”Addicted To Bass” series, along with his work as one half of UK R&B outfit Soul’d Out. He can also be heard producing the ultra-talented up-&-coming MC Mr Faizer, as well as remixing the likes of Xzibit, amongst others.
Robbie T is an established Garage producer who has dropped many club and radio anthems over the past several years. You may have raved down to his massive 2-step remix of Warren G’s Regulate, but he is best known for his slammin’ 4×4 reworking of Billy Paul’s vintage classic Mrs Jones. Robbie’s versatility knows no bounds, as has been known to also churn out Drum ‘n Bass, House and Grime stompers under his many, many aliases!
Together, this pair of promising young artists have compiled an album to showcase some of their best material from the last six years, including a heap of unreleased tracks which never made it to vinyl. The album is tied together via a series of genuine voicemails left on Robbie’s answerphone. Hopefully the torrent of abuse he receives will have even the most straight-faced of you chuckling away.
Vinyl & Voicemails features Garage, House, Dubstep, Bassline, Grime and Drum & Bass, with guest vocal appearances from the likes of Kele Le Roc, Rubi Dan, Mr Faizer, Robbie Glover, Deesha, Sumeet, and Soul’d Out‘s Harsh; as well as a few cheeky bootlegs guaranteed to get the crowds moving. Whether you’re a DJ or a music fan, this album is an essential listen.
