Whilst the premise of the Guest Mix Series was built on the foundations of showcasing talents of the future, when the opportunity arises to present one of the living legends of the House scene to our page, you simply don’t turn that opportunity down.
Over the past twenty years Phil Asher aka “the godfather” of British Soulful House has created a legacy that quite simply speaks for itself. The history of the scene may be littered with unforgettable names, but the influence of the Londoner cannot be understated.
Having created well over a hundred of his own distinctive, multilayered productions for his Restless Soul & Focus moniker he has collaborated with everyone from Zed Bias to Benji B along the way, always leaving him receptive to different styles.
Productions aside Phil is also the resident DJ at the long standing & hugely successful music institution that is Soul Heaven, having persuaded the likes of Masters Of Work to come & entertain it’s audience on the world famous Ministry of Sound dancefloor. West Londoner’s may also be familiar with his residency at the legendary Inspiration Information series also.
In anticipation of his set at Sun Splash, a week long House, Funk, Soul & Jazz festival taking place on the Turkish Riviera between 2nd – 7th June we’ve teamed up with the Festival to bring this guest mix from the man himself! Alongside the likes of Giles Peterson, Norman Jay & Koreless this mix outlines the kind of soulful vibe in what is an intimate celebration the holds around 400 people.
In homage to Mr Asher, the festival organisers left us this message: “This is a truly unique experience, combining luxury travel, good living and fine cuisine with some of the best dance music in the world.” Amen to that.
