In 2018, CamelPhat’s 2017 collaboration with Elderbrook, ‘Cola’, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. CamelPhat also won Best House Artist at the 2018 DJ Awards.
Meeting of Minds
CamelPhat first came to fruition in the record shop 3 Beat Records in Liverpool when fellow disc jockeys Mike Di Scala and Dave Whelan met. Both had been DJing since their early 20’s and had done stints and residencies at nightclubs around the city, with Di Scala even releasing music as a solo artist and member of other electronic groups. With the combined experience they began producing music together as members of The Chosen Few alongside Les Calvert. After releasing a few covers and managing the sublevel Adhesive, the pair decided to go in a new direction and started to establish themselves with a number of remixes under names such as Men From Mars, The Bassline Hustlers and Pawn Shop, They first broke into the UK Singles chart with the track ‘Shot Away’ based on a sample of the Rolling Stones’ ‘Gimme Shelter’.
CamelPhat’s Music Career
As they worked on boosting their reputation the duo released a number of singles under the name Whelan & Di Scala through various labels. It was in 2010 that they decided on the name CamelPhat and released singles through their own label Vice Records. In an effort to get people to focus on the music they initially started wearing wrestling masks to hide their identity. Over the years they worked on new material and started to break into charts across Europe, particularly in the Ultrapop charts in Belgium. However, it was in 2010 that they eventually conquered the mainstream when they released a collaboration with Elderbrook called ‘Cola’. The track was an international hit, launching the pair into the spotlight and peaking at number one on the Billboard Dance Club Songs charts. The single has gone on to become certified Platinum in Australia and the UK. CamelPhat followed this up with other hit singles including ‘Panic Room’ and ‘Breathe’, amassing a wealth of new fans. In late December 2018 CamelPhat signed with RCA Records, and released ‘Be Someone’, a collaboration with Jake Bugg, in 2019.
CamelPhat’s Awards and Nominations
As their popularity continues to grow CamelPhat have become some of the most popular DJs in the industry and received a range of awards and nominations for their work.
