Phaeleh – pronounced “Fella”
Since his debut release in 2008, Phaeleh aka Matt Preston has developed an inimitable style of cinematic electronic music, which meanders between the shifting tempos and timbres of dubstep, garage, electronica and house music.
Phaeleh’s last two long play releases on Afterglo records; ‘Fallen Light’ and ‘The Cold In You’ have cemented his position as one of the most exciting new producers to emerge from his home town; Bristol. Phaeleh’s downbeat and heartfelt sound honours the tradition of Bristolian fore fathers Massive Attack, Smith & Mighty and Portishead, with a fresh outlook and penchant for sub sonics.
His high spec production style has won him support from the scene’s leading taste makers including; Skream, N-Type, Scuba and Kryptic Minds, as well as radio coverage on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Kiss, Rinse and XFM.
Phaeleh is currently in high demand, with a busy DJ schedule for this summer, including dates at; Fabric, Outlook Festival, Kendal Calling, Secret Garden Party & Beach Break. He is also working on his next feature length recording, due for release in early 2013.
