FUNK MIX: DJ SOUP at SOUL OF SYDNEY feat. Nickodemus (NYC) | Mar 2018 | Soul, Latin, Afro BBoy Breaks


 

This was such an enjoyable set ! Sydney DJ, Producers & Beat-Maker DJ SOUP absolutely blessing us with a heavy dose of high-powered FUNK & BBOY Breaks & Latin Vibrations warming things up for NICKODEMUS (Turntables on The Hudson NYC) back in March.

Soup was the chief music provider for local break dancers. It was during his third year at High school he began fiddling with DJ equipment. Soup learnt about the dazzling new music form hip-hop and began developing production skills on crude sampling equipment in luxurious 8bit, his computer had an amazing 2 megabytes of memory. He began digging for samples and was mostly enthralled by Rhythm and Blues, Soul, early electronic music and spoken word records.

Soup has recently signed to the reformed Creative Vibes which is now under the umbrella of MGM Groove Merchants. Look out for a new album early in 2010.

Soup has remixed Aria nominated Watussi as well as Cookin On 3 Burners, both of which are on the amazing Knowfoowl label.

Soup has DJed in many clubs around Australia including a long residency at Tonic and Blue hotel and the legendary Sounds of Seduction with Jay Katz from the Mu Meson Archives.

Check him out currently at The Marble Bar, Miss Peaches, Tokyo Sing Song, Palmer & Co, The Bank Upstairs, The Civic Hotel, Cafe Lounge and The Lansdowne Hotel.

His sets are always eclectic but the common thread is soul. His first love is Rhythm and Blues but don’t be surprised to hear lots of different styles of music mixed and blended into his sets.

Founding the Fonke Knomaads, Soup became producer, DJ and part time MC for the left field Sydney Hip-hop pioneers. They released a 5 track E.P. called “The Hills Are Alive With The Sound Of…” on the now defunct label PoBoy records .Soup moved on to sign with influential Australian record label Creative Vibes . He soon released the groundbreaking Trip-Hop Album “Souperloops”.

Soup coined the term sampology and his tracks began popping up on several international compilations as well as having an album of the week on JJJ.

This was the first local hip hop release to be given such an honour. The album was influential to local bands such as The Resin Dogs and Fretless.

Further releases include collaborations with Fat Pizza star Sleek the Elite, the mini album “Eclectro” and the feature length album “From Anuva Planet” featuring Swollen Members and Gift of Gab from Blacalicious . Soup’s last release was “Beatroot-The Edible Root of the Beat” which is out on Invada records. A label run by members of Katalyst and Portishead. It is an album true to form with a variety of hip-hop and twisted electronic styles to keep those kids jumping.
