Phil Source aka Phil Aslett is from St. Albans, Hertfordshire in the U.K and is The CEO of Vampire! Phil was one of the original members of the legendary Source Direct. Source Direct originated back in (1992) as Sounds of Life when Phil was 16. Sounds of Life were originally engineered by Rupert Parkes now known as the legendary Photek. Phil's first ever Sounds of Life tracks were released on Certificate 18 and were supported immediately by the likes of Grooverider, Fabio, Peshay, Doc Scott and LTJ Bukem. Phil then went on to record tracks for his own imprint Source Direct in (1994-1999) famous for big tunes like "Snake Style" and "The Crane." Numerous releases on Goldie's Metalheadz imprint (1995-1998) LTJ Bukem's Good Looking Records (1995) and James Lavelle's Mo Wax recordings (1996) set Phil up to be approached by Richard Branson's Virgin Records and MCA Music Publishing for a major record deal (1996-1999). Having collaborated on two Albums for Virgin by (1999) and toured the world with the Source Direct sound (1995-1999). Phil was then asked to produce music for the Hollywood blockbuster "Blade" featuring Wesley Snipes. "Blade" ended up being a Top Ten Movie in the US for 12 months and was a huge hit here in the UK. Phil left Source Direct in 2000. He felt that he had achieved all that he could as a member of Source Direct with over a 100 different releases spanning over the 8 years (1992-2000). Phil had a long break from the Drum and Bass scene (2000-2006). Since being back and his full attention has been focused on his solo career as Phil Source and his new imprint Vampire Records Ltd. Vampire Records has been set up to release Drum and Bass music of all styles and will feature many different artists. Phil Source features on the first 2 vinyl releases on Vampire as Grand Masterz with Danny Mancini, a newcomer to the Drum and Bass scene but not to the industry being related to "Henri Mancini" the original composer of "The Pink Panther" soundtrack. Phil's 3rd outing on Vampire was a collaboration with Mark System on the track "Fearless" which featured on The "Once Bitten, Twice High" album. The track was well received and was played excessively by most of the big players in the scene. The next offering from Phil Source on Vampire was a remix of Soul Intent's "Future Funk" which he did with fellow Metalheadz stable mate Outrage. This remix featured on The "Drumz of The Damned" album and was a trip down memory lane for a lot of the Old School headz! The latest project on Vampire from Phil Source is "The Old to The New EP". This is the first Digital EP from Phil and is a collaborations EP with 5 tracks featuring Outrage, Mark System, Physics, Strago and Paul T. There is such diversity on the release that many people say it reminds them of The Old Source Direct days! Since 2008 Phil Source has been Djing again. He has already played in Birmingham (Custard Factory), Brighton (The Volks), Helsinki (The Rose Garden), Athens (BIOS), London (Cargo), Amsterdam (Flex Bar), London (Corsica Studios), London (The Hub), Lithuania (Fabric), Temah (London) Knowledge (Fluid, London), Fringe (Hemel Hempstead), Ichione (Amsterdam), Forms (Arnhem), Intent to Supply (London), Bios (Athens), Beatniks (Helsinki), The Bite (Plan B, London) and Cheeky Monday (Amsterdam)!
