The One Phat DJ podcast

Funky House Finesse 50

After 7 years of the One Phat DJ podcast and 50 shows of Funky House Finesse, we’ve decided it’s time to make some serious changes.

I’ve decided to take a sabatical from producing the regular shows due to a combination of things, the main one being the pending arrival of my second child. When I had my first child back in 2006, I worked hard to keep the podcast going but it was a real test due to many other commitments. I learned there’s only so much one man can do so rather than pushing myself, the sensible thing to do is take a break.

But do not worry – that’s not to mean it’s the end of Funky House Finesse. It’s time to hand over the reigns to some good friends of the show…

Starting September, the talented duo that is Matt Tsang and Stuart Braybrooke, otherwise known as the Souljackerz, will be continuing the regular format with their own taste of funky house delights. The guys have co-produced some amazing tunes over the last few years, won countless awards and been on tour around Ibiza’s super-clubs. You are in safe hands – I am confident you will not be disappointed (quite the opposite if I’m honest).

We will be launching a brand new website to accompany the new format so watch this space or keep a keen eye on Facebook and Twitter for announcements. Those subscribed to the podcast should not notice the change so we’ll be sure to mention it in a future show.

Before all that, I need to wrap up my sprint with my last show – and have I gone all out or what?

Not content with two hours, I’ve decided to go for a whole 3 hours of stonking funky house including an hour of long time favourites. How does that sound?

Funky House Finesse 49

God bless you all for your patience but we have finally got around to sorting out Show 49 after our horrendous technical glitch.

Chocful of funky house delights from industry heavyweights, we open the show with some massive tracks from David Morales & Roisin Murphy, Audiowhores and Beyoncé followed up with plenty of booty-licious tunes including three-in-a-row from Audojacker, several bootleg mashups from Dirty Freek, Frater & Stent and a cracking remix of a personal favourite by Phats & Small.

I’m sure you’ll agree it was worth the wait.

Funky House Finesse 48

It’s another month with another celebration of beautiful house on the horizon – the Southport Weekender in the UK. Always a hive of excitement with an eclectic range of soulful, funky and disco house to entertain the weekend campers. With that in mind, the first part of the show is dedicated to the endless parties up in Minehead from 11-13th May.

We kick start the show with an elegant reprise of the Boris Dlugosch & Roisin Murphy classic “Never Enough” which takes us into a number of soulful beauties followed by a jackin’ disco-fuelled session, wrapped up with some twisted bootlegs and Chocolate Puma’s amazing remix of Ben Westbeech’s “Same Thing”.

Make sure you send us your feedback – your favourite tracks, any questionable inclusions, whatever – we love to hear back from you. Even a simple Facebook “like” will suffice.
