Phil Horneman

Biography Phil Horneman

For Phil the most important value in life is music. This means that he always finds a connection with music, no matter what he does or where he is.
As a DJ, Phil started spinning his favorite 45’s at school parties back in 1979. Ongoing into the eighties he runs a pirate radiostation and moving on into the nineties he starts his own CD-store (the smallest in the country!).
Phil founded the name Wicked Jazz Sounds for his local radioshow in 1998 and was established since 2002 as a company with business partner Manne van der Zee.
With a collective of DJs and talented musicians, Wicked Jazz Sounds is best known for its weekly Sunday club night in the Amsterdam Sugarfactory. Besides all of this, they released seven volumes compilations on cd, performed on several major festivals in the Netherlands and started organizing their own yearly festival since 2015.
Being a radio host for the WJS show on Arrow Jazz FM (2008), KX Radio (2009-2010) and Dutch national Radio 6 Soul & Jazz (2010-2013), the show now runs weekly, since 2014, on Red Light Radio.
From 2010-2016 he was one of the curators for the Funk/Jazz page on 22tracks Amsterdam.
One thing you can’t accuse Phil of, is musical segregation; his DJ sets reflect his eclectic upbringing, including everything from original jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, house, latin and even drum & bass, electronica, beats and beyond.
