Well what can we say about Phil Weeks that hasn’t already been said. A true house music legend and an excellent addition to the series we first discovered his sound having bagged his Back For More EP on Detour back in 2003 and have been keen admirers ever since. Phil is considered by many to be a true inspiration in the international house music scene having been playing at the world best clubs for well over a decade and releasing on a host of different labels including his own highly successful Robsoul recordings.
A truly gifted DJ Phil certainly shows his quality in his Sub:terranea podcast serving up a jacking mix of heads down Chicago & Funk inspired house music aimed directly at the dancefloor. So turn it up, get your groove on and enjoy!
Phil Weeks is a house music purist. Whether DJing or producing, the Parisian with the huge personality delivers raw beats influenced in equal measure by classic Chicago house and nu-school French flair, underpinned with a hip-hop attitude. His long running Robsoul Recordings also defines him as one of the most skilled label heads in underground house music.
In the studio Phil is dedicated to classic hardware like Akai’s MPC 3000 sampler and Roland’s TR909 drum machine. He has released more than 250 tracks and remixes since his debut in 2000, working with labels including 2020 Vision, Music For Freaks, Brique Rouge, Detour, Adult Only and his own Robsoul, which is responsible for the majority of his original output. Phil’s work can also be found in the collaborations Fries & Bridges (with Hector Moralez) and PS Project/Bubba Beats & Kid Piston (with DJ Sneak).
Production highlights include Phil’s three albums ‘Love Affair’ (2011), ‘Yeah I Like That’ (2003) and ‘Raw Instrumental’ (2012), alongside style-defining singles ‘Hypnose’, ‘It Put Me Well’ and ‘All Day Every Day’. The music has been heavily supported by international dance press including achieving accolades such as MixMag’s and De-Bug’s ‘Album Of The Month’, while DJs ranging from Danny Howells and Yousef to Mark Farina and DJ Sneak consistently play his tracks.
Behind the decks, Phil has racked up enough air miles to take him around the world several times over, with appearances at the world’s leading house clubs – Queen’s Club, Sankeys, Circus, Ministry of Sound, Back to Basics and Stereo are all regular haunts, alongside his Paris residency ‘Get Underground’ at the infamous Rex Club.
Phil has also fully embraced the relationship with his fans and house music fans in general – whether through his popular ‘Underground Chronicles’ video diaries on Youtube or his personal relationships on Facebook.
Despite his success Phil isn’t one to brag. To him it’s all about keeping proper house music alive. Which just goes to prove Phil Weeks is a house music purist.
