Phillip Nguyen better known by his stage name, Winslo, was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington. At an early age, Nguyen discovered an undeniable fascination and passion towards music by taking up the guitar in elementary school as well as picking up electronic music production in high school. Nguyen noted that it wasn’t until his second year in college that he truly fell for electronic dance music through videos of DJs mesmerizing crowds at festivals he would find through online media sources that sparked a newfound fire within him to pursue something similar thus giving birth to his stage name, Winslo.
Starting out local, Nguyen began playing shows around Bellingham at house shows until his inception with MAYA Concept Co. whose art collective took him on to support his music vision. In time, Nguyen parted ways in order to work more independently and focus more on his own music production. With the support of friends and other musical artists in the scene, he has taken his home town by storm through laying it down at The Wild Buffalo and Studio B as well as releasing his first original song titled “Anything 4 U” last year. Things are looking promising for Winslo whose sounds and sonics cover the nasty filth of heavy bass balanced with the euphoric anthems of futuristic vibes in subdued harmony
