Phil Weeks – It’s The Inside That Counts
Hot off the heels of his current smash ‘Searching4Love’ featuring Ladybird, French house connoisseur Phil Weeks unleashes his highly anticipated new release for Robsoul – ‘It’s The Inside That Counts’. Already a hit with the club masses from USA to Ibiza, ‘It’s The Inside That Counts’ comes with a giant ‘chugga – chugga’ bass groove, bumping beats and armed with a killer sample vocal from Loleatta Holloway’s classic, ‘Dreaming’ that explodes on the dance-floor! Also featured on the release is the heavy MPC300 + TB303 beats fused combo, ‘Another 303 Groove’, which sees Phil flex his real time live editing skills delivering another playful slab of dynamite house music!
“These 2 tracks are just so fun to play, I’ve been rocking them so much since I made them. People are going crazy everywhere!” – Phil Weeks
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 – Watergate, 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. His recent release, ‘Live At Paladium’, has already been licensed to numerous popular compilation series including Nick Fanciulli In The House, Defected In The House Ibiza 2014 mixed by Simon Dunmore for Defected, Kontor Sunset Chill 2014, Toolroom Knights Mixed by Doorly and Blue Marlin 2014 for CR2. His last collaboration with Ladybird, ‘Searching4Love’, has been supported hugely by the dance music masses. Other forthcoming projects include a remix for Mark Fanciulli ‘The Fall’ on Objektivity and a remix for JR from Dallas ‘Slow City Groove’ on Gourmand Music.
