Following the universally well received Under The Influence Vol.1 compiled by Red Greg, Zedd Records returns with Vol.2, this time compiled by Paul Phillips. Being a seasoned record collector Z label boss Dave Lee (Joey Negro) has made the acquaintance of many of the worlds other vinyl junkies. People that may be unknown to the general public, but are hardcore enthusiasts who have built some of the best collections of soul, funk and disco on the planet. The idea of UTI isn't about big name djs, but to give a musical platform to those who have the knowledge to put together a track listing of killer tunes as Paul Phillips does here. This compilation represents some of Paul Phillips favourite soul, funk, disco and 80s club boogie tracks that for one reason or another went totally under the radar at the time of release in the US.
