DPS's own Paranormal Tek (real name Phil Schlosser) has been immersed in music creation & performance since a very young age. Exposed to music by his father (a professional guitarist, bassist & drummer) the flame of music caught on very early in his life and has subsequently became a lifelong passion. Originally trained on Electric Guitar in the early 1990s (and programming his father's drum machine to play along with, the Roland TR-909); Phil captured his creative edge lightning fast, right away his peers began to realize Phil was somewhat of a prodigy. Within two years he formed his own punk rock band "Wicked Paradise", in which he played guitar & lead vocals (along with his brother on drums & close friend on bass), they went on to record demos & pass them around which lead to an array of local gigs
eventually playing in front of his whole Jr High School.
In his Freshmen year of High School (98') Phil jumped in a car full of crazy kids en route to a Detroit rave party where he arrived shortly later at the then abandoned "East Town Theatre" in Detroit, MI - full of thousands of people; he instantly fell in love with the techno sound. Within weeks he purchased his own Synth, 909, 505, Sampler & DJ setup. Two yrs later (after an array of mixtapes & live projects) Phil started to receive attention from local promoters & began to perform at local raves, as a DJ & live act. This led to him producing his own events & after a few years of evolution in taste & knowledge eventually this evolved into the current "Detroit Paranormal Society" project.
As a promoter in general Phil has brought over 60 events to the City of Detroit, presenting (and playing alongside) such artists as JPLS, Drumcell, Skoozbot, Tim Xavier, Richard Devine, Evol Intent, Gridlok, Ben Sims, Function, John Selway, Neil Landstrumm, DeepChord, Echospace, Steve Stoll, Woody McBride, Robert Hood, Urban Tribe, James Pennington, Phoenecia, Tony Rohr, Scan 7, Ultradyne, Kyle Geiger, The Flashbulb, Dietrich Schoenemann, Joey Beltram, Anthony Shake Shakir, UR, Arthur Oskan, Nigel Richards, Bryan Zentz, Dustin Zahn, Derek Plaslaiko & many many more.
As a freelance artist he has been invited to play all over the State of Michigan, as well as Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri - Hamilton, London & Toronto Canada; not to mention notable Festival performances such as "Movement: Detroit's Electronic Music Festival" (DEMF) & the Midwest's massive "Underground Sound" Summer Festival (to name a few). Although keeping most of his material exclusive for live manipulation at play dates over the years, Phil is also slated to release an EP on Woody McBride's "Communique Records" next year as well as remix work for Plus 8 Legend Himadri's "Switch Records" imprint.
