"Phil Wrighton/Where’s North is one of the most exciting djs I’ve heard in a while, both musically and technically. You can count on him to light up a dancefloor after any DJ, any time of night." - 'Anne Savage'
"WheresNorth? I guess that depends on where you’re standing but if you’ve ever been parked up in front of the rig at any rave, party or jamboree where the Bradford born Sheff don has spun his riddims then his audacious mix of broken-beat genre-scaping sounds have probably left you reaching for your.. er.. compass. Boldly pioneering the non-four-by-four (and then some!) this dude possesses the repertoire to fit many an occasion, the nous to pull out the right record and enough skill to mix George Benson with General Narco, ooft! I’ve had the pleasure of mixing with this guy and I can tell you I learned more than a trick or two.
Mostly found flying the breaks flag at the Sheffield multi-genre rainbow vibe night of his own creation, he plays regularly throughout the city and often in Leeds, Bradford and …others?... I’ve heard he would play Beat-Herder EVERY DAY if he could, let’s make this happen still!" - 'Drew – Artificial | Constructs'
"Where'e North played a brilliant warm up set when he played Lowdown. A rolling thunderous build up that got the dancefloor rocking and the Stanton Warriors nodding in appreciation" - 'Steve Thorpe, Lowdown & Dirty'
"We've been lucky to have WhereNorth? a couple of times. Defiantly coming back as he blows the roof off every time and he's a ravers delight!" - 'David Tupling, TTT'
