Under The Influence Vol. Two compiled by Paul Phillips
Under The Influence Vol. Two compiled by Paul Phillips
by Various Artists





Following on from the likes of “Backstreet Brit Funk”, “Destination Boogie” and the ever-popular Soul of Disco series Z Records continue to release hi quality compilations filled with lesser known disco, funk and boogie. After the universally well received Under The Influence Vol.1 compiled by Red Greg ZR returns with Vol.2 this time compiled by Paul Phillips.


Paul Phillips first got into soul music in the late 1970s with the discovery of radio shows such as Greg Edwards and Mike Allen (Capital Radio), Robbie Vincent (Radio London) and the original soul pirate Radio Invicta. These were discoveries that led him to start his own soul pirate radio station in 1982 and go on to present radio shows on London based pirate radio station Starpoint FM from 1986 to 1991 and as the official on site radio station at the Southport Weekenders during the 1990s.


Paul is still involved in radio and currently presents his own show on Solar Radio that features the new soul and soulful house releases of the day mixed with the classic and lesser known soul, funk, jazz, disco and boogie tracks from the last four decades. Paul also continues to travel around the UK and USA in pursuit of collecting soul vinyl, a conviction that this new Under The Influence compilation highlights.


The story behind UTI is this, being a seasoned record collector Z label boss Dave Lee (Joey Negro) has made the acquaintance of many of the worlds other vinyl junkies. People that may be unknown to the general public but are hardcore enthusiasts who have built some of the best collections of soul, funk and disco on the planet. The idea of UTI isn't about big name djs but is to give a musical platform to those who have the knowledge to put together a track listing of killer tunes.

As always with Z Records, we've spent time and money to make the masters sound as good as possible so if you're a fan of compilations from BBE or Dimitri From Paris and our own Soul of Disco CD’s then this new series will not disappoint.
