Pacha Presents combines established and scene leading talent with fresh up and comers for their event on November 8th when Dutchmen Homework headline with Robosoul’s Phil Weeks, Jamie Trench and Three
Amsterdam-based duo Homework burst onto the electronic music scene in 2010 with a refreshing take on lush, Chicago-inspired house music, pricking up the ears of some of the most respected underground dance labels such as 20:20 Vision, Made To Play, and Berlin-based Exploited. Their Hudson Square EP – now a vinyl collectors item going for high prices on Discogs – garnered thumbs ups from both critics and peers and, seemingly overnight, turned them into internationally in-demand club DJs. Within a year, after being catapulted into the limelight the duo found themselves playing all over the globe, box-checking revered clubs such as Berlin's Panoramabar, Paris' Social Club, The Standard in New York and Studio 80 in their hometown of Amsterdam; winning them a prestigious Dutch night life award, Gouden Kabouter for Best DJ Duo, in the process.
DJ/producer Phil Weeks is a house music purist. His mixing is old school Chicago with a nu-school French flare going from the deepest house to the techiest. His production sounds like it could have been released in the 90’s partly because he uses the same gear: 808’s, 909’s, 606’s, even vintage keys. He prefers vinyl, likes his mixes dirty, and knows how to rock a crowd with a heavy hitting bass line. Phil Weeks is a house purist dedicated to bringing the world only proper house music with his DJing, his producing and his label, Robsoul Recordings.
As one of the UK’s most promising producers, with releases on Tsuba, VIVa Music, Kaluki, Music is Love, She Wolf and SKYLAX/A Fistful Of Wax and his own Roots For Bloom, 2013 is looking promising for Jamie. Jamie’s releases have turned heads in the house scene receiving plays at Dc10, Space and all across the UK and Europe. His musical influences range from artists like Kerri Chandler, The Chemical Brothers and MJ Cole, to A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick and other 90s outfits; Jamie’s never been shy to try something different in the studio or during his sets.
