This month you are in for a real treat as we invite our good friend and original 'Balearic Timelord' Phil Mison (Reverso68/Cantoma) back to brum.
Influenced by listening to legendary chill out DJ Jose Padilla, Phil started his DJ career at London’s Milk Bar in 1991, playing chilled Balearic warm up sets. A chance meeting there with Jose would lead to a two year residency at Ibiza’s Cafe Del Mar, sound tracking a thousand sunsets with his vast collection of sun kissed records. It was his sets there that led him to play at Full Circle, Bugged Out and to become Leftfields tour DJ.
Since then he has gone on to release a further 12 compilations (including four volumes of the hugely popular ‘Real Ibiza’ series), record with friend Pete Herbert under the Reverso 68 guise and in 2004, release his debut artist album under the now familiar Cantoma moniker. Phil has also recently been invited to play at Harvey’s 39 Hotel in Hawaii and in the last year played at Horse Meat Disco, Fabric, Secret Sundaze, Disco Bloodbath and APT in New York. His recent Originals compilation on the consistent Claremont 56 label was the highlight of last year for many a crate digger and his forthcoming remix of 'San Diego' by Shawn Lee's ping pong orchestra on Aficionado looks set to be a summer classic.
We are very excited to welcome Phil back to Brum!
Also on the bill is local hero Dean 'Sunshine' Smith (Soulshare Records); the Soulshare boss and Garden Festival resident will sharing some of his sunkissed collection with us. His recent sunshine reworks series have been taking dancefloors by storm all over,gaining him respect by some of the scenes biggest players.
Joining them on the wheels of steel will be Out of Bounds residents Discomendments.
