By the mid 90’s Phil had turned to his other musical passion of bass playing. He helped form the local phenomenon Turtle Soup supporting many signed artists of the day such as Electrasy and Jaguar. They also supported The Spencer Davis Group and were represented for a while by Don Airy (Whitesnake, Ozzy Ozbourne, Deep Purple).
In 1999 Phil joined the group Chenko who again had some success supporting other signed acts, such as Contempo.
Since 2002 he has been with the pop/ dance/ funk duo Myson, along with Chenko’s front person Lisa Ellis.
Late 2007 found Phil writing and producing house/ funk/ film music under the name Kubekropper. So far there has been a remix of the Myson track “Pacific Blue” and two other tracks “Bangkok Sunrise” and “Liquid Remix“. In 2008 the Portuguese label LAD Publishing & Records signed Kubekropper, releasing the three tracks on an EP entitled “Kubekropper“.
