Jet Phynx takes page from Lady Gaga's book

What do you get when you cross hip-hop, a futuristic anime superhero, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga?...What do you get when you cross hip-hop, a futuristic anime superhero, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga?
The answer: Jet Phynx.
Jet Phynx (pronounced Phoenix) is visually the most striking and boldly definitive character in hip-hop today, this side of Nicki Minaj.
Poised to be a fashion icon, the concept of his style -- both visually and musically -- evolved from a culmination of observation, advice and criticism. By all accounts, the Delaware native, who has opened for Flo Rida and Gym Class Heroes and will tour in support of his CD "The Art" this summer, started out a "normal" hip-hop kid wearing baggy jeans and rapping
over the "boom kack" beats more typical to the genre.
Jet always had an interest in fashion and stayed on the cutting edge of the latest trends since he was in his early teens.
"My older brothers were into clothes at a young age. I grew up in an era where there was the Malcolm X stuff, Kriss Kross rockin' stuff backwards, then to the Cross Colours, rockin' starter jackets ..." Jet told Allhiphop. "Then (I) got influenced by what Roc was doin', so I got into wearin' Iceberg and Rocawear. I was totally always a fashion kid. I just never paid much attention to it as far as a style and as a brand."
Jet's official background in fashion began when he scored a job at Flava Clothing and worked his way up to assistant buyer, where he was privy to the showroom floors of major clothing lines such as Akademiks and LRG. The job also entailed attending fashion shows, which further cultivated his flair. When he got the opportunity to intern at Interscope Records, Phynx began to understand the importance of the correlation between fashion and successfully branding an artist.
"I started seeing what it was about to have a brand, and it kind of sparked my interest. It's not just about the music. It's about how the artist looks, how the artist moves, how he talks."
Phynx's colorful imagination went beyond the thought of simply branding himself by wearing the latest trends or rocking a distinctive haircut.

Hailing from Delaware, Jet Phynx is pushing a new style and image for the East Coast music scene.The production on the tracks is good and Jet Phynx and we are really feeling the track “Club 2 Club,” on his Myspace. To give you a sample, we have “Notty Party,” which some of you might like more than “Club 2 Club,” but the latter does more for us. Both are solid tunes though."

A set from Phynx (pronounced fee-nix) is a special one, with his left-field attitude shining through with each song. While the attendees stood in awe, trying to make sense of his outfit (and whether or not he can actually see out of those shades), he brought the energy and performed for a crowd of people looking for something new and cutting edge.
Phynx brought on his partner-in-crime, Broadway, to add a tad of performance art to his performance. Equally eye-catching, she managed to add an extra touch of sex appeal to Phynx’ bravado-laced presence. And announcing his work with Lady Gaga and Kanye West, it all makes a lot of sense.
Watch for him to make his way to Toronto once again in the near future.

Skope: What were you doing when you found out you were selected for Skope A2W April 2010? Jetphynx:...Skope: What were you doing when you found out you were selected for Skope A2W April 2010?
Jetphynx: I just got picked up from the airport heading to Toronto Alternative Fashion Week, checking emails on my backflip. I was with my camera crew and Brawdway, we already were popping bottles of champaign, we just had even more of a reason to toast!
Skope: Now that the weather is nice will you be out playing live this summer & spring & where?
Jetphynx: The show goes on through any weather. You will always get an energy packed, slightly vulgar, outrageous performance from me, NOMATTER WHAT. I will be performing outdoors at Milwaukee Pride Festival in June, and many festivals throughout Europe in July – August.
Skope: What motivates you everyday to get up and create and work on your music?
Jetphynx: When my father passed of throat cancer, he said to me “ The world did not get to hear me, make sure they hear you”. Ever since then, I took on the promise to be the voice of my father. Motivation is a staple in my career, I feel anything less is a lie.
Skope: What bands & musicians before you heavily influenced your sound?
Jetphynx: My father was big on Jazz music, and traveled the world. We used to play this game where he would play a record and spread out different album covers. I had to guess which artist I thought the record belonged to. I grew up to Guns N Roses, Prince, Jay-Z, even MF Doom.
Skope: What is coming up for you and where can readers learn more about you?
Jetphynx: I am releasing my debut album “The Art” this summer. My buzz-worthy record “S.T.S.” is available on itunes now! Loads of shows, fashion, and special appearances. This summer is all about “Getting Shady & staying Fargo-Glam”. You can learn more about my Shady Socialite Movement & Pre-Order my debut album at JetPhynx.com.

This album is stamped into musics time-vault and will encourage great works through out current and future generations.You can snag a copy at Best Buy, itunes, and other online stores.
We have a huge performance cataloge (aside from current projects were marketing) to pull from to accomodate various set-lengths.
