Muscovite Feodor Stepanenko aka Nphonix first made his mark on the electronic world via a slew of quality dancefloor-oriented drum&bass tunes from 2006 onwards, released on some of the genres preemininent labels. But the last two years or so has seen Nphonix switch focus away from drum&bass towards a more diverse, polyrhythmic electronic palette, as future bass/ juke/footwork/techno and classic house all started to colour newer work.
The success of this diversification has seen support for recent Nphonix releases come from far and wide (Laurent Garnier, Slam, Exium, Terence Fixmer, Samuel L Session, Audio Injection/Truncate, Tommy Four Seven, Alan Fitzpatrick, Samuli Kemppi, Pfirter, Om Unit, Chrissy Murderbot, Pixelord, Ben Sims, Paul Mac, Darko Esser/Tripeo, Martyn, Alex Coulton, N-type, Truth, Goldffinch, South London Ordnance, Dexter, Happa, James Zabiela, Rush Hour recs, Rinse fm, Ministry of Sound radio, Top Billin recs, Boiler Room crew, Hypercolour recs and many more), and with a debut artist album due in Spring next year, this young Russian producer looks set to continue his creative ascent in 2015.
