Catch our very own Phat Phil Cooper in #Bali this Saturday DJing at Sentosa Seminyak Bali from 8pm. Phil will be throwing together a mixed bag of eclectic goodness of the audio kind for your delight and delectation...

#HushHushBali #PFCBali

Join us this Saturday for our Hush Hush Party from 8pm-1am! Hush Hush presents Phil Cooper- With 20+ years under his belt as an international DJ and in that time he has served residencies at both Super club brands, Cream and Ministry of Sound, Phil has been fortunate to combine his love of travelling and music to allow him to dig for vinyl delights in some weird and wonderful locations. As a regular visitor to the Ibiza since the early 90’s Phil’s understanding and eclectic music tastes really came to the fore, developed and grew. Phil was, and still is a music collector first and foremost. A lot has happened since those early days, music styles, fads and genres come and go, people mature as do their music tastes and Phil Cooper is no exception. What has not changed is Phil’s love of musical discovery and his passion for sharing those musical adventures and journeys into the unknown. Phil has always enjoyed the shared experiences music can bring and being the facilitator of those special times, be that from running off early pause button mix tapes through to DJing and now via his labels and podcast series.

This looks wonderful...

"Cheadle is learning to play trumpet for the role. He has hired Robert Glasper to score the music, with Herbie Hancock—who won an Oscar for his 1986 score for the film ’Round Midnight—helping to supervise the soundtrack." - Downbeat Magazine

Thanks DMC and Greg Fenton

B.J. Smith - Hey Ya! / Prototype - (NuNorthern Soul)
On paper this might have turned out to be a nightmare, however on vinyl it plays like the party classic has been transformed into Balearic bliss. The tempo is now low-slung, and even sexier for it, as gently plucked acoustic guitar sets the summer scene alongside a vocal which once again works a tre…
