How Dysphemic and Miss Eliza met.
The love story of Dysphemic and Miss Eliza begins at a free outdoor rave in the city of Melbourne, Australia. It’s 3:30am and the party is banging. Miss Eliza is dancing behind the decks as Dysphemic arrives to play his set. Immediately captivated by the girl, Dys hands her a demo cd (which she loses) and compliments her hair (which makes her giggle and cringe). Miss Eliza runs off home because in a few hours, she will be playing violin at her church. Little does Dys know, this party girl would soon become his muse, lover and musical partner in crime…
The next day Miss Eliza received a call from her best friend Will urging her to listen to the Dysphemic cd. After a week, Dysphemic and Miss Eliza made a date to meet up at a local drum and bass party where they spent the whole night side by side dancing and sitting outside the club listening to Eliza’s compositions on her iPod. From that moment, Dysphemic knew that this was the girl for him and they shared their first kiss on a skanky couch at the Night Owl.
From here, D&E’s relationship grew into chords of progressive change until finally, around the turbulent time of Dysphemic’s Europe tour in late ‘09, their love blossomed into fruition. Soon after so did their inevitable music collaboration. The first of these ever written was the unreleased duet entitled ‘Chasin’ Coin’. At the time, Dysphemic was living in MC Syphon AKA Purple Duck’s shed. They were pretty skint, but crazy happy, so they wrote a track about chasing the coin with super happy synths and the cutest, bounciest melodies. Even though the track was not as complex as later arrangements, it was the fun they had making it and the fact that, to them the song was humorous causing much laughter that led them to realise that there musical alliance is both meaningful and significant.
Soon after moving in together D&E took their collaboration to the next level creating the hauntingly beautiful and melodic drum and bass tune ‘No Shame’ and from this onwards the couple became serious business, working around the clock composing arrangements in their home studio for their debut album, ‘Classical Remix’. Before this album had even dropped they had already began to get plenty of exposure releasing the heavy weight dubstep tune ‘Ramses’ on the hopscotch label’s compilation release, featuring and on the cover of Beat magazines pullout 100% as well as releasing a three track EP entitled ‘SLOTH’. The duo has supported international producers Andy C, Truth, Plastician, Foreign Beggars, Chasing Shadows, Datsik and Zulu Flow.
