The Diseffect is a project based in the Detroit area, Michigan, USA. This solo project features Mike Phipps (formerly of Pulse State, and currently of Schedule IV), who in this capacity focuses on an organic sound. Hardware synthesizers, drum machines, and guitars are utilized wherever possible, and it is all mixed and produced on the Apple Macintosh platform using Logic Pro X.

The idea for this project formed in Mike’s brain sometime in 2017, as his work with Schedule IV (in which he plays guitar, mostly) inspired him to do something less dependent on virtual instruments and dance beats, as so much of his Pulse State canon had been up until a couple of years before that point.

Currently, The Diseffect has one EP, Unicorns, available. More music is planned to follow.
