Phil Fairhead

Growing up in the Pontiac, north of Ottawa, Phil Fairhead aka dj dr.phil always had a feel for electronic music, whether it was djing weddings or at the school dances. Phil was always involved with the entertainment side of things. He knew at that point that music and djing was his passion.

In 2004, Phil moved to the Ottawa / Gatineau area where he attended his first Afterhour Club Party, and what an impact it had on him. After seeing the lights, hearing the music, feeling that bass, watching the dj control the crowd, Phil knew that this is what he wanted. He wanted to be an aftehours Club Dj.

Shortly after, Phil purchased his first pair of turntables, along with a mixing board, and started playing any private party he could get invited to. His Dj career quickly took off, and his name started to get recognized.

Phil got his first residency at “Le Garage” in Gatineau. The owner of Club Traffik/Motion afterhours noticed him and his skills. His popularity and fan club grew quickly as he got residencies in known clubs such as MTL & co, Minx Afterhours, Loft 455 & Lounge 426. Winning the regional Onaversal DJ competition in 2006 was the turning point for Dr. Phil. giving him the opportunity to play in Montreal.

Phil definitely has what it takes to make a dance floor move. Playing all different genres to please anyone and everyone, from Tribal tech, to the sexy vocal house, we all just love to hear Phil’s amazing technical skills and feel his energy. He leaves the crowds pumped and wanting more! Phil often travel’s to Montreal to play in the city’s biggest nightclubs such as Sunrise, Circus & Red Lite to name a few.

Today, Dr.Phil can be found tearing up the BPM’s nightclub dance floor every Saturday night. In this very successful afterhours club in the Ottawa / Gatineau region, with his all new DJ setup. Phil has what it takes to do live performances bringing tons of creativity to his mixes. The dancing never stops as he performs live remixes on the spot.
