For more almost 10 years Wicked Jazz Sounds has been responsible for people dancing with a smile. The first time we hear from Wicked Jazz Sounds (WJS ) is in 1998 in the format of a local radioshow hosted by Phil Horneman. A year later Phil starts throwing parties under the WJS banner in different location and slowly after becomes best known for the weekly Sunday clubnight in the Amsterdam Sugar Factory, and of course for the 7 volumes of the CD compilations by the same name. For Phil the most important value in life is music. His sets reflect his eclectic upbringing, including everything from original jazz to house to soul to hiphop to drum & bass to funk and beyond.
