Phil is currently the A&R director for Hed Kandi and DJs at Hed Kandi gigs across the globe every weekend. As A&R he’s responsible for choosing the music for the amazing Hed Kandi compilation series, running the label and signing singles for release as well as managing the DJ roster and music policy for its amazing parties all over the world.

Phil’s background involved a role at Pete Tongs FFRR label in 1996 working alongside Pete on both the label and his Radio One show. Over the next nine years, Phil had numerous hit records with the likes of Lucid, Armand Van Helden, M&S, Dannii Minogue and the Artful Dodger to name a few.

In 2005 the then Managing Director of Hed Kandi, Horace McDonald and an old acquaintance of Phil offered him the role of A&R director at the label taking over from Mark Doyle. One smart acquisition of the label by Ministry of Sound and that pretty much brings him to the here and now.

Phil continues to fly the flag for Hed Kandi, working hard to maintain the musical values of the brand and discover amazing new music, deliver outstanding DJ sets and compilations for the ever so special Hed Kandi faithful and develop new ideas and markets for the brand and for Ministry of Sound. He recently signed Steve Angello and Laidback Lukes version of Robin S “Show Me Love” – possibly the biggest club record from the last year and is currently sitting pretty in the National chart. Other forthcoming priority projects include new material from Bootyluv – The new single “Say It” is due in August.
