Dirtyphonics is a French electronic music band from Paris, consisting of members Charly, PitchIn, and Pho. Their music style is based on electro, dubstep, drumstep, drum and bass and trap.

In 2008, Dirtyphonics signed on Shimon's label AudioPorn Records and showed their very own vision of drum and bass with songs such as Vandal, Quarks, Lottery etc.[1] After releasing remixes on many labels, such as Virgin Records, Atlantic Records, Warner Bros. Records, Sony Records, Mau5trap, Cooking Vinyl, Ram, MTA, Ultra Records, they joined Dim Mak Records in 2012.[2] Dirtyphonics has worked with Linkin Park, Skrillex, Kaskade, Benny Benassi, Foreign Beggars, NERO, Modestep, Steve Aoki, Marilyn Manson, and many more through collaborations and remixes.

On March 19, 2013, Dirtyphonics released their debut full-length album Irreverence which merges heavy bass music, drum and bass, dubstep, and electro. The first single from the album, "Dirty," was released in October 2012, followed by "Walk In The Fire," "No Stopping Us," and "Hanging On Me" in 2013 with remixes covering most genres of electronic music.

In early 2014, Thomas resigned from the band to pursue his aspirations in painting. Although one member short, the band lost no speed and continued touring at major festivals worldwide. Finding a second wind in the studio, Dirtyphonics just released a collaboration with Zeds Dead, “ Where Are You Now” feat. Bright Lights on Mad Decent. They are expected to release their sophomore studio EP on Dim Mak Records in Fall 2014.
