Ill-Boy Phil, born in 1982, is a real vinyl lover. In the early 90´s he bought his first pair of turntables and started messing around with vinyl records. Starting turntablism and beatjuggling as a HipHop-DJ, Phil gained huge popularity in his bavarian hometown and its sorroundings. Being fascinated by the medium, he built up his own record store “Ill-Biznizz Records” in 2001.
Everything went well along the time, but things were about to change. After visiting several electronic festivals, Phil fell in love with electronic dance music. He started collecting his first techno and house vinyls and began organizing underground rave parties. Today his parties, called “Treibjagd”, are still the main events in the area. Big names, as well as creative youngsters, are always exited to show up and spin the tables; the crowd always boils the venues to the max. After being successful for so many years, Phil decided to advance to the next level and started to produce his own sounds in 2012. After releasing some tunes and remixes on different labels, he decided to built himself and other talented artists a platform: “Treibjagd Records” was born and hit the scene very successfully. Artists like Patrick Kunkel, Pele, Lützenkirchen, Joseph Disco, Dema & Paride Saraceni produce for “Treibjagd Records” and new and talented artists get a chance to become recognized on the newly founded sublabel “U6 Schallplatten”.
Being a successful DJ, Producer and event manager, Phil truly loves music and the art of party. He hosts a radioshow on FEVAH FM 88.3, still plays on every good party he can catch on and searches for young talents to boost their career. His records get support from big names like Sven Väth, Aka Aka, Paco Osuna, Butch, Oliver Schories, M.A.N.D.Y, Slam and many many more.
He booked and played along sides of Felix Kröcher, Dr. Motte, Leeroy Thornhill and more.
