Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala met at the Liverpool music store 3 Beat Records, and later both were regular DJs at the nightclub Society.
As a duo, Whelan and Di Scala released music under different names, such as The Bassline Hustlers, Men from Mars, Da Mode, Whelan & Di Scala on various labels, including his own label Bachelor Pad Recordings.
In 2010 they released their first recordings under the name CamelPhat on their own label Vice Records. Initially, they wore wrestling masks to hide their identity because they "just wanted people to judge the music, not us." The duo has released numerous singles and EP's on various labels, and some CamelPhat tracks have appeared on Ultratop charts in Belgium.
The duo's collaboration with Elderbrook resulted in the international hit "Cola", which took first place on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart and was nominated for Best Dance Recording at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.
