John Mares
Canadian, Czech-born House / Techno / Soca / Drum and Bass Producer and DJ. Phyzxx (real name John Mares) began his career as a DJ in Toronto's prominent rave scene in the early 00's.

His first taste of vinyl was back in a record shop in 1999 where he instantly fell in love with the feel and warm sound emanating through the turntable needles. His musical style began with Drum and Bass where he learned to scratch over the quick beats. As his tastes expanded he found himself in the realms of Progressive and Techno with major influences like Deadmau5, Boris Brejcha, Armin van Buuren, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Steve Lawler and Andy C. Through that, phyzxx has acquired a magical mixing style riddled with double drops, weaving basslines and quick cuts.

Currently, Phyzxx is working on honing in on his production style - since there isn't anything better than watching people dance to your own music. He loves to incorporate heavy BASS, wandering Drum rhythms and majestic synths into his productions. As the speakers get bigger and bigger, there will surely be a need to fill the void with a rumble unlike any other.
