Toronto native, MC Flipside can be described as one of the few dj/producers that can rock a dancefloor with his records, but also sprinkle his MC-ing abilities, keeping his crowd in check with his lyrical genius. Add radio show host and record label honcho to the Flipside belt, and of course not forgetting the ever changing signature haircut that he continues to dazzle us with every month! MC Flipside still remains down to earth and humble about his work, quickly spotted by Toolroom Records label boss and DJ/producer, Mark Knight. Flipside was soon snapped up for Toolroom projects and put to work right away. Flipside’s vocals appear on Dutch producer Bart B More’s “So It Goes” (A Day In The Life) courtesy of Toolroom Records, climbing the Beatport Electro Chart to number 6, as well as a cool chart placing at number 15 on the DMC Buzz Chart.
MC Flipside zigzags fluidly between house, electro and hip hop, enabling him to work with an array of artists including , Lee Mortimer, Yves LaRock, and Wolfgang Gartner (keep an eye out for Wolfgang’s and Flipside’s dancefloor smasher “Flashback”.
, (another Toronto music phenomenon) teamed up with MC Flipside in 2008, adding his infectious Flipside vocals on the club hit, “Hi Friend” which quickly became a favorite on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 Essential Mix Show, as “Essential New Tune”. Not only has “Hi Friend” reached number 4 on the Beatport Top 100, but it’s been a dancefloor gem to many a compilation, featured on “Toolroom Knights” mixed by Benny Benassi, Ministry of Sound’s "Ibiza Annual 2008", Underground Ibiza 2008, "The Annual 2009”, Clubbers Guide Russia, ’s World Series: Brazil and Global Underground 2009.
When Flipside is not representing label royalty, he’s busy with his own label PBR Recordings, which he started in 2007, releasing his own productions and heading up the artist repertoire department. To date, PBR Recordings is home to a dozen up and coming house and electro artists, such as Granite and Phunk, Simon Gain, Matteo DiMarr, Joey Seminara, Carlo Lio, Breakdown, and Gigi Barroco, to name a few; stacking up a wealthy library of releases. Granite and Phunk’s dance floor favorite “So Fly” and Matteo Dimarr’s “Beside You” both charting high once again in the Beatport charts. Upcoming releases on PBR include MC Flipside’s "In The Zone" featuring exciting new remixes from Deadmau5, Bart B More and Carlo Lio (recently signed to Dubfire's label, Sci-Tec Records).
The future looks bright for the charismatic MC Flipside; collaborations with Tom Neville and Bart B More are in the works, as well as a vocal driven EP entitled “No One Trick Pony” on PBR Recordings. We can expect to see him flexing his vocal and production talents on an upcoming artist album penned for 2010, with extensive touring of the US and Europe.
