Who better to host a mix series than the shop that supplies the music to a countless number of the most important and forward-thinking DJs around?
Cementing itself as a Soho institution over ten successful years selling records to the great and the good on the London music scene and beyond, our friends at Phonica Records have launched a new mix series, which last week kicked off with German producer Damiano Von Erckert.
Speaking about the first mix, Phonica say: “We’re big fans of last year’s house/disco melting pot long-players ‘Love Based Music’ and ‘Mr. Pink What Have You Been Smokin’?’ (with Tito Wun) here at Phonica. They really need to be seen as well as heard though, with their brilliantly original packaging all part of the fun. His brand new 12″ ‘Giant Pandas And Other Nice Things In Life’ is out this month on his own label AVA.”
Drawing on a vast reservoir of good will shown by DJs and producers towards the shop that has consistently directed them to the best records around, Phonica’s mix series follows the release of their 10th anniversary triple vinyl compilation, which features friends of the store like Henrik Schwarz, Trevor Jackson and John Morales offer up new tracks for exclusive release on the 10 Years Of Phonica comp.
