Self-labelled “Tha Vietnamists” and lifelongtime friends, Pho & DJ iRaize, founded the group over eight years ago, based on a mutual need to push musical boundaries as well as their own technical limits. They are based in Paris, France.
Their live performances best illustrate the magic of combined imagination: rare and traditional vinyl cut up with sampling, scratching, analog instruments, live musicians & the MPC real time drumming. All this combined with killer beats to shake the floor! They played alongside international artists such as Kid Koala, Wu Tang Killa Beez, Mix Master Mike, Busdriver, The Scratch Perverts, Wax Tailor,Dj Kentaro and even skateboard legend Tony Hawk for the Quicksilver Tony Hawk Show in Paris.
The originality of their music has initiated worldwide collaborations with respected artists such as Shabazz the Disciple, Killarmy, Hell Razah (Sunz Of Man), Tariq.L , Genghis Khan, Non Genetic, Mc Yoke (Tokyo), Ali (45 Scientific), La Fine Equipe (Paris).
Wax Tailor “Say Yes” 2009 remix contest winner & “Découvertes du printemps de bourges 2009”, they released their first unofficial LP, “Iconoclast Sound Adventure” in 2005. This year they’re releasing “The Cloud EP”, featuring 3 tracks from the forthcoming album “Cloud Adventures” and “Megaphone”.
Tha Trickaz represent the perfect combination between 90’s hip hop and electro music such as dubstep or drum & bass.
