2011 heralds the release of a trailblazing new collaboration between Australia's production extraordinaire M-Phazes and dexterous US word-slinger Emilio Rojas. This pioneering new duo goes under the name of Phaze One. With an indisputably fortuitous future ahead of them, Rojas and Phazes have forged their self-titled release over two years of toing and flowing across the Pacific. Paying homage to the likes of DangerDoom, Jaylib and the masterful relationship of the Foreign Exchange. Phaze One has found synergism fusing vintage influence with modern concepts. M-Phazes landed his first international album placement in 2005, producing the standouts of US artist Supastition's sophomore release 'Chain Letters'. It was while enjoying the success of this album that M-Phazes met the interminable Rochester native Emilio Rojas. With a definitive signature style that has seen him share albums alongside Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli, M.O.P, Grammy Award Winner Amerie and a plethora of acclaimed musical pioneers, M-Phazes has quite the enviable track record already. In 2010 the M-Phazes debut album Good Gracious powered through the Australian charts and earned the Melbourne beat maker an Aria Award (Best Urban Release), an AIR award nomination for urban album of the year, and a final spot for the illustrious Triple J Album of the Year J-Award. Emilio has been described by DJ Green Lantern as one of America's most anticipated up and coming artists, he's released a string of successful mixtape's that have drawn the considerable talents of Grammy winners and platinum musicians. His diligent work ethic has seen him collaborate with Shady Records signee Yelawolf, chart climbing sensation B.o.B, as well as Styles P, Nottz, Killer Mike and a whole stable of influential musicians. The album features guest vocals from Illy, Mela Machinko (Pharoahe Monch and Jean Grae), and Mateo. Now, the stage is finally set for the two artists to throw back the curtain and reveal the fruits of their labour.
