A sucker for a good re-edit or rework of classic Soul, Funk, Disco and occasionally House tunes; Phil Austin's DJ sets are a heady fusion of classic and modern dance tunes with a strong leaning towards the soulful and funky. The emphasis is always on the dance floor with pulsating basslines, killer keys, rasping horns and soaring vocals, all lovingly laid over a foot shuffling back beat.
A child of the Second Summer of Love and the Madchester scene, Left For Love's formative years during the late 80s and early 90s were spent on the dance floors and in the illegal raves of the North West of England - The Hacienda, Cream, Quadrant Park, Shaboo/The Abattoir, Unit 7... the list goes on. His musical tastes were forged listening to DJing Goliaths such as Mike Pickering, Graeme Park, Jon DaSilva, Weatherall, Sasha et al. together with the underground heroes of the Blackburn Warehouse circuit.
As the scene changed and age took it's toll on the body and the mind, music from Left For Love's childhood years came back to the forefront with Soul, Funk and Disco providing him with a new musical soundtrack.
