Welcome to the first in the series of A.MA Reforged remix EPs curated by Bob Hill (The Return of the Illicit Groove and Totally Wired Radio) which connects the extensive and innovative back catalogue of A.MA Records with some of the most innovative remixers and producers around today.
For A.MA Reforged 001 Antonio Trinchera's track Joy Drops from his Next Moves album and from the compilation Inside A.MA volume 2 is remixed by one of Chicago's favourite sons, the prolific, innovative and versatile House producer Elbert Phillips.
Elbert first came to prominence as a DJ in Chicago in the 1980s and throughout the 90s secured his position as one of the go to DJs for special events and parties including Chicago's annual Summer music festival The Silver Room Sound System Block Party. The godfather himself, Frankie Knuckles, chose Elbert to be his warm up DJ for four years in the early 2000s and Elbert was one of the first DJ's approached to play on Boiler Room's tribute to Frankie at the Smartbar.
Elbert currently has a residency show on Mi-House Radio and is working on a number of remix commissions from around the Globe.
