“Phil started DJ’ing Rare Grooves in the mid 80’s at various venues across the UK. In 1988 Phil set up the now famous ‘Record Basement’ shop in Reading. The shop attracted a lot of top UK DJ's and supplied records to all of the major playaz during the Rave & Drum N Bass Years through his companies Vinyl Distribution & Nu Urban Vinyl. Phil built up a rep for two DJ residences in Reading where the shop was, as well as playing at Clubs & Raves all over the UK.
Phil launched the ‘Basement Records’ label in 1989 and the label went on to become one of the top Rave labels of its generation, launching the careers of so many Artists and Djs.
