Dj Soops neo soul mix (Part 14)

OK, I might be slightly overdue with this mixtape due to a surprising UK heat wave. But I've managed to uncuff myself from the fan and embrace my insomnia to bring you some juicy underground soul..... Ride with me to a place where dirty 'kicks', 'snares' and 'honesty' collide.  Some call it the 'truth' Some call it 'broken'  Me... I'm just on my “Tribe Called Quest” In search of that eternal groove. Enjoy.......

Latasha Lee & The Blackties

What do you get when you mix: retro with motown, throw in a great voice, then add some vintage cool black ties. I call it “good honest soul”. You can call her Latasha Lee, a singer-songwriter from Texas who has effortlessly captured that unique sound Berry Gordy would be proud of. Her influences of the past include Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke and Etta James. Latasha Lee & The Blackties are set to reinvigorate the genre as the late great Amy Winehouse did. So refreshing and so needed in an ordinarily bland R&B landscape.

Endorphins Mixtape by DJ Rav

I truly believe "if it's soulful, share it". So I thought I'd get you guys up on this smooth mix by DJ Rav. I appreciate when a dj's put his heart and soul into his work and this ones definitely got that good feel factor.  If you're getting ready to go out "two steppin" or going for that all important summer cruise, this is for you. Highlights for me included: Teddy Pendergrass - Believe In love (Phat Phill Extended mix), Raheem DeVaughn - I Dont Care, Faith Evans - Faithfully, Metropolis - Kick It, Faith Evans - Good Life, Jaheim - Aint Leaving' Without You and one of my favourite jams by Sounds of Blackness - Optimistic.

DJ Rav.....We salute!

Dj Soops neo soul mix (Part 13)



Hi guys, welcome to the bumper edition of my neosoul series, (Part 13).  As I’ve been away for quite a while, I thought I’d give you guys a long set for you to get your teeth into.  I’m excited to say, this set is feature packed, fusing underground soul, hip-hop, electronic funk with a hint of jazz.
Initially, I went through about 60-70 tracks in preparation for this mixtape.  I look at these mixes, almost like a filmmaker telling a story: with a beginning, middle and a big finish.  I’m very happy with the outcome and I hope you guys can feel my enthusiasm, and like me, lose yourself in this great music we call “Soul”.

I’m also planning to drop a remix mixtape featuring some of my exclusives in the next coming weeks, so watch this space.  For now just hit "play" and enjoy the groove....

Veronica Domingues - Out the Door (DJ Soops RMX) Exclusive

A short while ago I received a soulful banger from a sassy talented Toronto singer called Veronica Domingues.  The track was called "Out the Door" and I felt it so much, I had to remix it.  I went through my catalogue of dope instrumentals and I found "Waves" by Freddie Joachim (I'm a big Joachim fan!) and after a couple of turntable spins later, I'm rocking out to a sweet soulful redemption medley.....
Today I dropped the worldwide exclusive on Unity 101 FM's "Notes, Beats & Bars" show.  Big shout out goes to Hadz and So Soulful for featuring my guest mix and interview.  Look out for the Veronica Domingues upcoming project called "Just Chill" It's gonna be fresh.

Soul Movement 2 Album Teaser...Beyond good music?

Looks like it's going to be a good summer...I'm definitely looking forward to Slakah the Beatchild's forthcoming monstrous vibration called "Soul Movement Vol 2". He set the bar way too high five years ago with "Soul Movement Vol 1", but I guess we're in for even more refinement and musical excellence from the soulful producer.  If you're like me, you wont be listening to this teaser once and you'll definitely be scrambling for the rewind when you hear that Glenn Lewis track drop in.... That's just the tip of the iceberg.  With a mouth watering lineup including; Justin Nozuka, Andreena Mill, Tingsek, Spek Won and more, you know what you have to do, my starving soul seekers.  Get your pre-orders in this spring (we're told).  My money's patiently waiting......

Dj Soops neo soul mix (Part 12)

Hi guys, I hope you're enjoying your holidays. This is my last mixtape for an eventful year. 2012 may have been a struggle for some, but there's always some good music to keep us going and keep us alive. So after what seems like a long hiatus, I'm back for my neo soldiers. In the search of perfection I actually recorded it twice lol but I'm happy with the outcome. Its a jazzy and soulful affair mixed with electronic funk, I'ts something you can definitely groove to.... So to conclude, I would like to say a massive thank you for all your continued support for my blog and neosoul mixtape series. Enjoy this one and have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!!!!
