We Need No Swords podcast episode 16: Phil Julian


Recently, I cornered the electronic music genius and all-round top human being Phil Julian for a chat and pint in Hackney. We talked about his working methods, back catalogue and the importance of collaboration.

It is presented in edited form, for your enjoyment, accompanied by a selection of music that merely skates the surface of Phil’s excellent discography.
