You can’t have a website without music right? Here goes, a little treat for you all… The lads at Phobik are a big hit around the NW so they’re sticking around to promote their latest sounds to the rest of Planet Earth..Enjoy 🙂
Phobik started out life as a jam session at a rehearsal room in Ancoats. We had a couple of bits of gear, hardware/software, and we were trying to get them all synced and working together with the aim of recreating the sound of some of our favourite acid and Chicago house tunes. We love the raw sound and energy of stripped down house music and the speed that those pioneering producers were writing and recording the tracks, resulting in a lo-fi sound with no over production, just straight to the point. We missed out on the acid experience first time round but older mates put us onto tunes that were played in clubs like the Thunderdome, Konspiracy, the Hacienda and the warehouse parties in Blackburn. Growing up in the mid to late 90’s however left us open to seeing live electronic bands like The Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, 808 State, Orbital, so we were well aware that being in a band didn’t require guitar, bass and drums. The band consists so far of two guys with a DJing background and a guitarist who loves drum machines so playing our stuff out live is a totally new experience for us and differs every time we play.
