Under The Influence Vol.2 compiled by Paul Phillips [Z Records]

Under the Influence vol 2

My compilation CD Under The Influence Vol.2 for Z Records features some of my favourite lesser known Disco, Boogie and Soul tracks from the 70s and 80s that for one reason or another went under the radar at the time of release.

The vast majority of these releases went unnoticed other than in some cases exposure in their local area of release via local radio airplay and sales which in some cases would lead to a minor local hit.

The album is available on double CD, gatefold vinyl and download.

RELEASE SPOTLIGHT : Tristan - Full Power

Tristan - Full PowerDutch band Tristan release their first album 'Full Power' a mix of soul and jazz funk grooves.

Lush vocals and great instrumentation.

More info:


Soul Love 2014The finest, truest definition of modern soul yet – Soul Love 2014.

No effort has been spared in bringing this album together, all corners of the globe scoured over much of last year for 25 contemporary cuts of exquisite groove, musicianship and emotion.

Soul Love 2014 tips its hat to the classics but doesn’t dwell on them.

This is a project all about moving forward; about distinguishing itself from the overload of compilations treading the same old soul clichés by celebrating a younger, fresher, totally inspiring new line-up of music-makers.

Artists like Momrelle and Evans have mileage but theirs is a vibe colliding impeccably smooth, heartfelt vocals with crisp 21st century production – respective offerings Spotlight and Supernatural tell it like it is.

RELEASE SPOTLIGHT : Blu James [ Ten50 ]

Blu JamesThe incredible debut LP release from Blu James – voice of “Red Alert” by Basement Jaxx. Featuring production from Dego (2000Black, 4Hero), Daz-I-Kue (Bugz In The Attic), Blakai (Mark Force, Kaidi Tatham & Matt Lord),
Simbad (Raw Fusion, Defected) & QB Smith.

This eclectic LP displays the wide range of Blu’s exceptional vocal talents, from Broken Beat bangers such as “I Get High” & “Spaceships”, via the deep sounds of Dego productions – “Make It Go Away (Pain)”, “Stare Into The Truth”, all the way through to the Hip-Hop/R&B flavour of “Take Six” & “Say Now”, Ten50 presents the sounds of Blu James – a name that’s sure to be making waves in 2014.

Ten50 Records – The brand new label and online store from Bugz In The Attic’s Mark Force, Kaidi Tatham & Matt Lord.

Remixed With Love By Joey Negro [Z Records]

Remixed With Love By Joey Negro

Remixed With Love is Joey Negro’s dream project and most definitely a labour of love.

The album features 18 tracks all remixed from original session tapes some more than 30 years old which was “A headache” to source as Joey puts it.

“Often you end up speaking to relatives of the person who actually made the record and unfortunately I heard the line all too often, “I might have a copy of the vinyl somewhere but I definitely don’t know where the master tapes are."
