Check out some of the SOUL TRAIN FUN from our last few parties

A Few points that might help you organise you day better;

  • It is a FAMILY FRIENDLY PICNIC first and foremost so might be a good idea really to pack for a Sunday Picnic in the park (eski/ picnic basket, fruit, drinks and something to sit on etc.)
  • We have a spot with a stack of grass around with plenty of room for kids, it is 5 mins from city around Alexandria, there is shade but best people bring some hats etc.
  • We will have a Sound System with selectors playing an eclectic mix of real music including everything from Sade to James Brown to De La Soul, Erykah Badu & Masters At Work, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles.
  • It is open decks with rotating DJ’s (but best people get in touch via soulofsydney@gmail.com if keen to play to confirm time slots)
  • We usually aim to get everything starting at about 12pm with ending time around depending on vibe.
  • We will be waiting for the weather forecast before we make the call as it is outdoors, if it does look like it’s going to rain then we will simply move till next sunny Sunday. (We will be in touch a few days out for the event via email & on the day via SMS in case we have to move the party, so we will need your Mobile details too so we can get location details quicker)
  • ARTIST CALL OUT: If you are a local Musician, MC, Singer, Percussionist or DJ then we are very keen to hear from you if you would like to play, especially if you down to play percussion along the Djs in an open jam vibe for Sunday. (we are hoping to get thing going as a regular Sunday afternoon local soul funk and hip hop open jam session so if your keen to be part of it let us know)
  • For local Soul music fan then we simply wants you there enjoying the music, so get a group of friends together, spread the word and come down for a day out it the park to some real music.

Thanks again for getting behind the idea kids.. Sydney definitely needs more people like YOU!

Pray for good weather & hope to see you all at the next one.

Public Enemy – He Got Game (1998) Vs Buffalo Springfiled – For What Its Worth (1967)


Public Enemy in fine form as usual on the title track for 1998 Spike Lee film “He Got Game “, they went one better than just sampling a hook for this one. Rather than jack the samples of the 1967 Buffalo Springfield classic protest song  “For What Its Worth”, they actually brought in Stephen Arthur Stills the man who originally wrote and played guitar on the song to feature on their take of his classic some 30 years later.

The #1 Hip Hop group of all time featuring a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer & one greatest guitarists ever is a creative match up that put out  one hell of a tune. A track that stood the test of time to become one of the most original sounding PE tracks to date.  Also props to PE for pulling off a collaboration that I don’t think too many other rap groups and pull off to be honest.
