Philthy Phonics aka Stephen Brown and Ray Fenwick, have been DJing and producing together over the past 4 years. Under their "Converge" guise they have been regarded as the hottest upcoming deep house artists in the UK releasing top quality house music..
Having DJ'd around the North East for many years, Steve and Ray came together hosting their own show on midlands based ID Radio, and were invited to test their burgeoning production skills on soulful house hero's Masterbuilders track "Man Cannot Rise" featuring non-other than Steve Edwards (Cassius - Sound of Violence, Bob Sinclar – World Hold On et al). Their debut efforts resulted in two releases on the single, and an immediate impact on the UK underground scene.
Further work on original productions saw the first Converge releases quickly picked up by Munich based Diamondhouse Records, featuring on the label's 2007 ADE sampler and Open Bar Music's "Back 2 House" compilation. After featuring prominently on both Traxsource and Beatport charts another milestone was the boys "Dig Deep EP" on DJ Circles imprint, TriCircle Deep, which incorporated remixes from Mr Cenzo and Elmar Schubert.
Remix work has flooded in over the past two years seeing Converge's name on releases all around Europe and the US, with the tracks attracting attention from DJs across the globe.
Philthy Phonics DJ sets are deep and energetic, making the most of four decks and effects units. They have collectively and individually DJ'd alongside industry names such as: Adam Shaw, Kris Menace, Guy Ornadel, Kate Lawler, Jon Rundell, Bigger than Jesus, Judge Jules, Matt Hardwick plus more…
Together they have been involved in various promotional nights including: Stereo Sushi, Pukka Up, Beatitude, Promise, LUBE: and more…
