M-Phazes Joins the Niche Artist Agency

Niche Productions are proud to announce that super-producer M-Phazes has joined our artist agency roster. M-Phazes has production & songwriting credits on releases with the likes of Madonna, Eminem, Kimbra, Meg Mac, Lupe Fiasco, 2 Chainz and more as well as a Grammy, ARIA, Billboard and APRA award under his belt.

Now, in 2016, M-Phazes is about to turn his world upside down with the release of Messiah, the first official single taken from his forthcoming solo producer album that boasts an unprecedented line up of all-star guests. The track was co-written with Alison Wonderland (and Treyshun Campbell) and features an epic vocal performance from the gold certified producer/dj. Messiah sees M-Phazes step out of the shadows and into the foreground to deliver this dark, edgy pop anthem for the summer and is available now.

Messiah has been blowing up Alison Wonderland’s DJ sets all year, with fans eager to ID the mystery track online. “I made the beat almost a year before we made the song, and it dawned on me that Alison would be perfect for it,” M-Phazes explains of their collaboration. “The lyrics come from a real emotional place for her, so I wanted to capture that feeling while also making it a song she could play in her sets.” Messiah is the perfect introduction to the boundary-pushing energy of his forthcoming LP, which dips into synth-pop, electronic R&B, feelgood hip-hop, club-ready bass music and more.

M-Phazes’s production credits are stacked with success stories, not least his Grammy win for co-producing the standout track Bad Guy on Eminem’s 2013 album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. He continued to produce songs for a diverse list of artists in recent years, including Moxie Raia’s On My Mind (featuring Pusha T), Keyshia Cole’s N.L.U. (featuring 2 Chainz), Daniel Johns’s Imagination, and Meg Mac’s Grandma’s Hands. M-Phazes points to his collaboration with Kimbra on her 2011 debut album Vows as the experience that “really set me off on a path of working with different genres.

Now the “go to producer” behind a long line of hits is taking his well-deserved place at front and center. Both Messiah and the forthcoming solo album showcase M-Phazes at his versatile best. “I hope people will appreciate that good music is just that, no matter what the genre,” he says. “Music shouldn’t be put into boxes.”
