DJ Glyn Phillips (GlobalSoundClash / Brum Radio / WorldBeatUK / Overflow Show) has been bringing his own brand of party music to the Be Festival for the last 6 years with his mix of tropical music, soul, funk, electroswing, balkan and rampant onstage silliness!
With the annual Be Festival cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers decided to do an online festival instead whilst in lockdown, entitled the BEatHome Festival. They asked Glyn to try and capture the magic of the live Closing Party nights (both live and in a 3-hour radio homage) whilst simultaneously DJing the same setlist live over Zoom to an invited international audience.
This is the radio version (without the live shoutouts etc) of the first two hours of the party - the more upbeat dancefloor session. It also includes some messages from one of the BeFestival co-directors, Miguel Oyarzun.
Please check out Part 2 (the final hour, "the chill zone") also on Mixcloud - as well as his WorldBeatUK shows!
