Biography:

THE DUSTAPHONICS:  London - UK (Healer Selecta Rock’n’Roll Soul Surf Revue)

In 2008, the iconic American actress Tura Sa - tana (Varla in Russ Meyer’s ‘65 cult classic, Faster Pussycat Kill Kill asked DJ Healer Selecta (Freestyle Records) a.k.a. Yvan Serrano (Vintage Weekender/RaisonD’Etre London) to create some music for her next movie. Thus, The Dustaphonics concept was born.

The Dustaphonics is not a band in the traditional sense; instead it is composed of founder, band leader, music director & producer DJ Healer Selecta, who selects and assembles a specific rotating line-up of London-based singers, drummers and bass players to form a 4 piece band: Yvan playing guitar himself, featuring Gizelle Smith or Hayley Red or Aina Roxx on vocals. Mark Claydon or Eric Frajria or Bruce Brand or Hugo Deviers on drums and Dan Whaley or Daniel Jeanren - aud or Devid Dell’Aiera on bass.

Whether The Dustaphonics play tonight, at a festival for 10,000 people in Spain or in France, in a club in the North of England, or in a trendy venue in London and whoever from that rotating line-up will be on stage that night, The Dustaphonics will deliver the same great quality, atmosphere, sound, enthusiasm and energy. All of whom share the same passion for 50s/60s Rhythm ’n’ Blues, Rock’n’Roll, Rockabilly, Instrumental Surf, Soul, Funk, Garage and 70s Punk Rock, melding all these influences into a unique Dustaphonics cocktail sound wrapped up in a party vibe: for 10 years Serrano and his various collaborators have delivered that great and positive vibe which is what makes Dustaphonics songs so remarkably fresh and distinctly modern, with a production sense that offer the best possible sound to both: Purist vintage roots music fans and those who want something up to date.

The Dustaphonics have twice backed legendary Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd on stage, opened the London show of Motown icons, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Garage Punk heroes The Sonics, Rockabilly Queen Wanda Jackson, 60s Swinging London cult Blues man Sam Gopal, R’n’B Maestro James Hunter and the list goes on.
