It may say Mark Landon on his birth certificate, but to the world at large he is M-Phazes, one of Australia’s most successful producers and songwriters. He’s worked with everyone from Amy Shark, Noah Cyrus and Daniel Johns to Kehlani, Ruel, Madonna, Demi Lovato and Eminem, with whom he won a Grammy in 2015 when The Marshall Mathers LP 2 won Best Rap Album.
