A Florida native, Phil the Decknician grew up in his adopted hometown - house music's very own birthplace, Chicago. He got his musical start around the age of 6, regularly listening to Chicago's WBMX house mixes, many times with nothing but a Walkman under his pillow late at night. A number of years and instruments later he settled on turn tables as his musical weapon of choice. As most aspiring DJ's, he started out playing local area house parties, while progressively acquiring larger and more popular gigs. Soon he was playing at Chicago's biggest and most popular clubs: Crobar, Rive Gauche, Cabaret, Griffin Lounge, and V-Live to name a few.

With such influences as Depeche Mode, Jason Hodges, Bad Boy Bill, Claude Vonstroke, and Kaskade, it is easy to see how his musical style can adapt to the tastes of his listeners at the drop of a transition, easily moving from one genre to the next as needed.

Having an extremely diverse musical palette, it is difficult to pigeon hole Phil the Decknician's playing manner into one particular genre. With a style that can range from tech house to electro, funky to deep, with a bit of nu disco and indie dance thrown in for good measure; it is easy to see why many consider Phil’s music multi-dimensional. His ability to scratch beneath the surface of the crowds musical psyche is almost uncanny. Not only does he know how to introduce them to sounds they may not have traditionally explored on their own, but during peak moments, his hard-hitting and heart pounding eclectic beats leave the whole mass undulating as one.

Always on the lookout for new opportunities to showcase his talent, Phil the Decknician has had gigs outside of Chicago and has played in both Chelm and Lodz, Poland to great acclaim. Currently, he is back in the studio working on a number of projects to be released in the upcoming months.
