'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 Im really into
at the moment - theres no acid or techy tracks on the album (I love that also as people
know) - its all about soul music and funk influences.

'Love Affair has been crafted on no more than an MPC3000 sampler with beats, samples
and Phils own vocals manipulated expertly into house rockers. Speaking further of the
album concept and its production Phil Weeks explains, Its 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 Im 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
worlds 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.
