Phil Asher

October 24th(friday, as oppose to our regular saturday night) Phil Asher is going to be joining us for a Deaf special, its also out 3rd birthday in Dame Lane. Phil is on it with the tunes and is able to turn his hand at many styles…from the more modern neo sounding soul tracks he’s prduced by artists like Shea Soul, who features on his new album “Phlash and friends” to the straight up big prduction soulful house music he be producing for years, for those feeling the need for a tuffer sound check tracks Minotaur and resulution=sulution both off the new album and available on 12″ and download. Below is a Biog written by Phil a few years back

OK - where to start? Here’s a brief biography of all the bits of my life chucked into one.

Introductions first. I’ve made over eighty of my own productions, and tampered with countless other tracks in a remix guise. My first gig was at Delirium (London’s first house club) in 1991, which basically consisted of me slipping on a record when Noel Watson went to the toilet - to more recent gigs at Garage City, Off Centre, Angels of Love and Ministry of Sound. I’ve played pretty much everywhere….

I’ve been surrounded by music and vinyl from an early age; my Dad worked in a record store, bringing home all the latest releases to me. Enterprisingly, I would slyly slip them into my schoolbag and take them to school, subsequently selling them to my friends. When anything came out, my Dad would bring it back to me: I had the first Specials record, the first Electric Light Orchestra record… He’d also bring me little boxes of returns and stuff. We’d sell them at school fairs. All the other kids would be doing Bob the Apple, and we’d be getting these twenty seven year old punks coming up from the Kings Road for Clash box sets for twenty quid a go. We knew what was going on…! This grew up with me, and I went on to work in Quaff Records and Vinyl Solution, two of London’s finest record stores.

Don’t ask me what I play - I hate pigeonholing. At our club on a Friday night (The Notting Hill Arts Club that I do with Patrick Forge), I play jazz, latin, all the classics, a bit of disco and funk. Saturday nights are more cutting-edge house music. I play music from every category as long as it’s good. Quality, timeless music with big production.

I work with Luke McCarthy as the Restless Soul production team, which also incorporates producers Modaji (Laws of Motion Records), Taxi Driver (Estereo Records), and Roy the Roach, Aaron Ross and Felix Hopkins (also my trusty engineer). He also produces under various aliases including Basic Soul and Electric Soul with Luke McCarthy, Woolph, Phoojun [alongside Nathan Haines], and 12-bit Rephugees with Mark de Clive-Lowe.

I’m part of the West London brokenbeat scene which has been receiving serious critical acclaim of late…I’m a founding member of the Co-op Club alongside Dego, I.G Culture and Demus. This enables us to represent and promote the West London sound worldwide.

In 2001, I produced and co-wrote a live-based jazz album for Chillifunk Records with saxophonist Nathan Haines, then again in 2003 for Haines’ second album for Chillifunk and, in between, I recorded my second album, ‘Sweet & Sour’ under the name Focus, which was released by French label Versatile records.

Most recently I produced and co-wrote ‘Shades’ – the album by Vanessa Freeman, again on Chillifunk, along with Mike Patto.

Support on the night comes from our very own Carl Bauer and Ronan Considine.

Thanks to all who came down for Benji B. It was large!! We’ll have the same sound system in for Phlash.
