Philip Young (NL)

After a few years being on the dance floor, Philip Young (1982, Amsterdam) decides to control the decks himself. Soon he became a resident dj of Ibiza’s El Divino in the summer of 2005 and 2006. Once well known as a club dj, he nowadays finds his spirit in techno and minimal music. He loves to play long sets, just to get the chance to let the audience hear, feel and experience his unique style of deep mixes. Philip played at parties like the Amsterdam based GZG Matinee (Gasten Zonder Grenzen) and Electronation. And in clubs like Paradiso, Maassilo and Sugar Factory. In 2007 Philip starts his own minimal techno night Schlüss at Catwalk, Rotterdam, together with friend and dj colleague Joey Daniel. They’ve invited guests like Mark August, Phil Kieran, Johnny D, Polder, Melon, Daniel Sanchez, Boris Werner and Hilbert in HiFi. This night turns out to be one of the best techno nights of Rotterdam. Every first Saturday of the month you can find Philip behind the decks at Amsterdam’s Addicted party. Where he invites guests dj’s like Warren Fellow, De Man Zonder Schaduw, Lupe, Boris Werner and Carlos Valdes. Philip also played at several Dutch festivals like Dance Valley, Mysteryland and Rotterdam’s Fast Forward Parade. In 2007 Philip has been visiting Paris (Red Light), Antwerp (Café d’Anvers) and Barcalona’s Sonar Festival for more gigs. Nowadays he’s producing music too. His earlier released ‘Rolling the Dice’ is used for the fashionshow in the Dutch movie Nadine (2007). Philip is one of the prior producers on the 90 Watts Records label. Philip’s ‘New Terrace’ EP are three deep and warm techno tracks. A new and more deep house track from Philip has just been released. It’s called ‘Conflict of Interest’. The coming up new release ‘Strand’ will be out at the end of August inclusive Gimikk (aka Daniel Sanchez & E-Contact) remix. And there is also coming a remix of Philip’s ‘ I don’t want to win’ from Mark August, it will be released in September. So keep your ears open for more to come…
