We are delighted to return to perform at The Brook in Southampton very soon with support from our good friends Soul 45 DJ’S.
SOUL 45 DJS
“There’s nothing like the depth, detail and sonic impact of a good vinyl record” say the SOUL 45 DJs (Mark James & Neil Walters), and they should know, they have been championing the 45RPM/ 7” vinyl format for the last 4 years in Southampton and at their SOUL 45 club nights. Everything from classic Motown sounds to raw Soul, heavy Funk, Disco, Boogie and B-Boy Breaks, Roots Reggae, modern day releases and some golden Hip Hop thrown in for good measure – and keeping with the perspective of the old-school, few things are as fabled as the practice of collecting and spinning 45s. Smaller than a 12-inch record, but larger than a compact disc, 7-inches might be outdated technology but pack a lot of punch with a rich warm sound.
It’s not about dj technique, it’s about great taste and their growing reputation for dance parties has brought them sets alongside local and international acts alike, including Trojan Sound System, Eddie Piller, Public Service Broadcasting, Craig Charles, Don Letts, Hannah William & The Tastemakers, Charley Macaulay, Freddie & The Freeloaders, Black Cat Boppers, Mayfield, DJ Format, Mr Thing, New Street Adventure and the legendary Afrika Bambaataa among others.
Soul 45 dj sets are a refreshing hot alternative to the Top 40, new dance-trends and other cookie-cutter nights out and most defiantly a unique music experience you can’t find anywhere else on the southcoast.
