What can be written about Phil Asher that his 20+ year history does not explain for itself? A British house hero of epic proportions who is one of the very few who can claim to be there from Day 1. Never willing to settle into the “pipe and alippers” mode of many other old skool house jocks, Phil Asher has always maintained the only constant is change. As the “godfather” to the broken beat / West London sound – one of the freshest and most exciting genres – blending both dance and urban musical styles – to emerge in the underground for many years – Phil shows his why he has always given his heart and soul to his music and the vast gaggle talent that associate that he his encouraged and nurtured – spawning a new generation of artists, producers, labels and indeed consumers single handedly.

Honest as the day is long, it’s his production skills that the really connect the ear drum to the hairs on the bck of the spine. From the distinct remixes (Earth Wind & Fire, Jamiroquai, Tito Puente, UFO, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Terri Walker to name very few) under the supersweet and multilayered grooves of his Restless Soul production crew to his full album productions, most recently under the "Focus" moniker (Versatile Records, France) and for Nathan Haines "Squire for Hire" and Vanessa Freeman (Chilli Funk).

He is resident dj for the last remaining bastion of good taste at the Ministry of Sound : Soul Heaven – the long standing and ever popular house monthly where he is the only name big enough to persuade the likes of Masters at Work to come and regularly perform to hungry audiences. At the other end of the scale his weekly Friday night – Inspiration Information – in West London’s Notting Hill Arts Club – sees the lucky few hundred to get through the doors each week sees Phil playing a intimate and eclectic set with long term partner in crime, Patrick Forge (Da Lata / Kiss 100 FM) with friendly light-hearted vibe and unannounced performances as well.

Also rockin' the spot at the beautiful Sunnyside Pavillion will be Garage 416's Blueprint and Moreno, milk's Felix & Gani and RNB's Richard Brooks and Ali Black.
