A classic track by ABC with a huge swag of remixes back in the day. Ultimix did this song justice, however their mix did date a little, so I've cleaned it up a touch, locked it on beat and done some gentle overdubs. The result - PURE CLASS!!! Enjoy!
Evangeline is possibly the best independent voice to come out of Australia in the last 2 years and she's my future hit prediction. Writer/producer/performer - she's the full package. William Black took My Kingdom to the next level and I was summoned to create a re-edit for all the DJ's and tastemakers out there, so here you are to enjoy "My Kingdom (Philvester's Fit For a Queen Club Edit)" Enjoy!
A classic so corny that is just perfect. Well known and well loved for all the right reasons. Remade in the 00's by Live Element under the title of Something About You, but first made famous by Exile back in 1978 - originally a Country Rock band with several albums (and still touring!) however this was their only crossover hit produced by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chin (who also penned many hits for Suzi Quatro, the Sweet, Mud & countless others).
i worked from the original mix, extending it in parts and beefing up the eq for today's floors. I have not had a dull moment when I've dropped this record.
Try not falling in love with this song all over again! Enjoy!
A jewell in the crown of disco. This song is the stuff legends are made of, in particular this re-edit. I feel all warm and fuzzy every time I hear this song and tackling it in the studio is a very daring task. This edit was reconstructed from various mixes by various legends and a couple of unknowns. An epic edit, clocking in over 16 minutes - and not a boring journey by any accounts. Up for a limited time for your listening pleasure and sadly - no download will be offered. For your listening pleasure from the only and only Philvester in memory of Sylvester!
A rare unreleased gem from the Paisley Park vaults with no defined released date or intention. Quite possibly a courtship ballad written for Mayte as it relates to the time Prince would have met Mayte. A rare lyric of Prince referring to himself as a king and possibly the reason he may have shelved this polished production. We will never know the real reason why it was never released, but one thing is certain - the production on this is amazing, simple while complex and 100% Prince produced, arranged and written. Catchy and uplifting. RIPnce, you will always be loved and missed.

A few years back I had the pleasure of meeting this fine lady and boy could she sing!!! She was sweet, funny and signed about a dozen records and CD's for me. We laughed, told stories and she even got a couple of her girlfriends to sing along with her. Possibly one of the best vocalists I have ever heard in my life. I gave her this mix before I saw her show and she really enjoyed it. It's a showcase of not just her disco stuff, but many of her lesser known collaborations that deserved a spotlight on them. Enjoy!
A Major overhaul here of the classic Claudja Barry track. I worked from the original parts and slowed it down as much as possible before reconstructing it in a completely different manner to the original to emphasise all the great elements of this classic. NO downloads on this one, sorry.
Disco Veterans, Nightlife Citizens, Age Old Friends and Life Long Admirers of his Royal Badness. Australian heavyweights Love Tattoo and Philvester entered the studio with 3 hours to spare. The result is what you hear before you and the debut outing by The FEO. We'll let you work out what that stands for. In the meantime, here's our slick reworking of two great classics we're sure you'll enjoy.

Possibly one of the most exquisite and sensual disco pieces ever recorded.The late, great and nothing short of fabulous Sylvester and his soul sister - the adorable Jeanie Tracy teamed up for this duet.
A rare piece where Jeanie insisted on him "doing the Baritone voice...you know he always wanted to sing falsetto....I told him now there ain't gonna be no two female in here singin'...you got-ta be the man.....he was like ......aw girllll...we were fallin out laffing at the outro doing all those little love parts...but he sounded amazing...and lovely."
Thank You Jeanie for insisting Sylvester showcase his Baritone.This is truly a timeless piece that will live on forever. - Love to both of you.
Due to extreme demand I have made this version available for a limited amount of downloads. I also remastered the audio on this version, along with correcting the pitch and locking the tempo for DJ's.
Enjoy everyone! This one is for you.
A nice little re-edit I did using a snippet from the Oakland Piano and Microphone concert and the original recording. This shows how timeless and flawless the guy really was. Enjoy. All right reserved by the original label.
