Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Orlando, FL, M-Squared has always had the DNA of a DJ.

Since these humble beginnings, millions have witnessed M-Squared rock international stages from Vegas, Miami, Los Angeles, New York City, Paris to Dubai. You may have seen him on the hit BET series Master of the Mix. In 2014, he was voted best Red Bull DJ, and is currently the set DJ for Grammy award winning superstar Kelly Rowland.

NatuaralPHIL landed his first professional gig when he was only 11 years old. This Virginia native has performed nearly all corners of the world from South Africa, Switzerland, Spain, Paris, Grand Turk and South Korea.

His multi genre experience spans from touring with double platinum reggaeton artist Don Omar, recording with Grammy Award winning R&B artist Kevin Cossom, and the B.B. King All Star resident band in Orlando, Fl and more. He is commonly referred to as being “a natural”. NaturalPHIL puts it simply: “Birds fly, cows moo, dogs bark, I play drums.” Together they emerge with a idiosyncratic musical power, placing them in the cultural context of musical history.
