Phil Weeks releases his third album Raw Instrumental in March 2012 and continues his recent dedication to sampling and creating music with classic Akai MPC3000 sampler. Following on from his critically acclaimed Love Affair album from early 2011, the Parisian house producer once again focuses on digging in the crates to find samples which are then cut, chopped, sliced, diced and expertly tweaked into 14 fresh dance floor bombs. Raw Instrumental will be released on double pack vinyl and digital download through Phil Weeks own Robsoul Recordings, now in its 13th year. The album will be introduced with a 4 track sampler, containing Dirty Groove, On Da Raw, Pimpin 4 Weeks and Do That Dance. The album concept is introduced via Phils trademark spoken vocal on the first track: Raw instrumental material, like MPC 3K beats, mostly based on the sound quality and everything that makes my head spin! Its a relatively simple concept, but one that takes true skill and mastery of both the studio and dance floor to execute effectively. Speaking further of the production techniques and inspiration for Raw Instrumental Phil explains, I was also inspired and influenced by classic movies and used samples to create a full atmosphere for home listening the album includes samples from The Godfather, How High, Friday, Foxy Brown and more. Phils previous album Love Affair followed a similar sampling approach but with a focus on funk and soul roots. The album received rave reviews from DJ Mag, 5 Magazine, DeBug, iDJ and several other publications, while singles taken from the album were awarded Mixmags Tune Of The Month accolade and reached #2 in Resident Advisors most charted tracks of December 2010
