The ability to incorporate multiple genres while still retaining your own sound is an admirable quality, and one such trait resistor prides himself on achieving.
From early hip hop, glitched out electronica, to rock metal and film score, all of which in some way play a part in creating the resistor sound.
Phill’s musical history is a long and varied one. Starting out playing guitar in local Brisbane metal Bands from 1990-1997, he always had the passion to create music on his own terms.
It wasn't until the late 90's technology allowed this to happen.
To cut a long story short, he discovered electronic music in the form of Big Beat. Through names like the Crystal method, Propellerheads, Chemical Bros and Fatboy Slim, the connection grew closer between his rock & metal roots to his new-found love for chunky beat driven dance music.
From 2003 to 2007, Phill was a co-manager of Brisbane’s premier breakbeat/D&B club night – phats Albeats, which at the time was the longest running club night of its type. Running monthly events at the Empire – Fortitude Valley.
In March 2012, resistor made his first full length album debut on 96KHz Productions. With almost 2 weeks at number one on the Beatport top 100 breaks charts, and reaching 39 overall, the album was favorably received by the DJ and electronic music community.
Phill is now a member of UK electronic outfit - robosapiens, in which he has been collaborating with over the past 12 months on a full length release, due out in 2014.
Over the years Phill has had the pleasure of supporting the likes of Hyper, Rogue Element, Tayo, Groove Diggers, Nubreed, Phil K, Elite Force, Smithmonger, Dopamine, dub Phizix and MC Strategy to name a few.
With fresh new tunes in production and a string of remixes and collaborations already on the go, the next year is looking huge.
