Over the weekend, Australian Aria Award Winning Producer M-Phazes received his first ever Grammy nod with Eminem’s MMLP2 receiving a nomination for Best Rap Album.
Having co-produced MMLP2’s intro song “Bad Guy” for Eminem and later being invited to tour with the man himself nationally on this year’s Rapture Tour, 2014 has indeed been a career defining year for Australia’s favourite beatmaker.
Over the past 12 months, M-Phazes has clocked double platinum sales for MMLP2, and platinum sales for Illy’s “Tightrope” and Bliss n Eso’s “Circus In The Sky”. He’s also landed coveted placements on major international releases such as Keyshia Cole’s single “NLY ft. 2 Chainz” and two songs on Logic’s album “Under Pressure”, which was just announced as iTunes “Best Hip-Hop/Rap Album of 2014” in the US.
There are no signs of slowing down next year with M-Phazes recently announcing his placement on Lupe Fiasco’s new album “Tetsuo & Youth” due for release on 20th of January 2015.
M-Phazes is currently in his Melbourne studio working on his sophomore solo album due for release in late 2015.
