Istanbul native Ilker Soylu, better known as Philogresz, is a Turkish-Dutch Electronic music producer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ based in Amsterdam. With a decade-plus career spanning genres from Electronica to Techno to jazzy stripped down micro-cuts, Philogresz has released tracks on respected labels such as Echocord, !K7, and Electric Deluxe. He also heads up Team Records and Phil, having produced dozens of releases since 2002.
One of his top releases thus far, Mooder (Bedrock Records), topped several international charts. His 2010 single Move Me was selected by Gilles Peterson for his legendary weekly radio show, Worldwide, on BBC Radio 1. His Dub Techno piece Edge (Echocord) was licensed to the prestigious DJ Kicks series on !K7. Additionally, several of his mixes have achieved high chart rankings on Resident Advisor, Beatport and Kompakt.
His 2014 debut album The Lost Movie was launched in Tokyo with a remarkable show at Shibuya’s legendary club Module, and was featured on various media outlets such as Vice, RA, Thump, Noisey, DJ Broadcast, and Fazemag. The album launch was followed by a supporting tour with numerous dates, including performances at 10 Days Off, Boiler Room, Tomorrowland, and Distortion Festival.
Philogresz regularly performs worldwide and and plays at popular venues such as D-Edge Sao Paulo, TBA New York, Radion Amsterdam, Arkaoda Istanbul, Culture-Box Copenhagen, Berns Stockholm, Revolver Norway, Macarena Barcelona, and Rye Wax London.
The mix is recorded live in New York City in February 2018. It was a rainy Thursday at this club called TBA Brooklyn where I had the freedom to play all night long. This mix is capture of the final hours of the night where the energy levels were high. Hope it feels right!
