Phil Weeks
'Love Affair LP'
Robsoul Recordings

Phil Weeks presents his second artist album, ‘Love Affair’, released through his own Robsoul Recordings. Available on limited edition double pack vinyl and digital download, the 11 track LP marries the classic and unmistakable sound of the Parisian producer with a more soulful and funky side: “I got inspired by listening to a lot of soul, hip hop and love songs. It s a particular side of me that I’m really into at the moment - there’s no acid or techy tracks on the album (I love that also as people know) - it’s all about soul music and funk influences.”

'Love Affair’ has been crafted on no more than an MPC3000 sampler with beats, samples and Phil’s own vocals manipulated expertly into house rockers. Speaking further of the album concept and it’s production Phil Weeks explains, “It’s all about sampling, cutting, tweeking the samples in pieces and doing a puzzle. Like they do in Hip Hop - producers like Jay Dilla, DJ Premier and 9th Wonder. I was inspired a lot by this. The MPC3000 has a special groove and a sound that I love and I’m trying to do that with House music for this project.”

Since 2000 Phil Weeks has released his unique brand of house music on some of the world’s leading underground 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. He has also graced more mainstream imprints along the way such as Cr2 and Toolroom, and is one half of renowned duo Fries & Bridges with Hector Moralez. His debut album ‘Yeah I Like That’ was released in 2002. His rise as a hotly in-demand international DJ has matched his production career.
