★ABOUT SOUL OF SYDNEY
▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Created in November 2009, Soul of Sydney is an independent, artist run collective who are bonded by a love of ‘funk’ based music. Our people include DJ’s, Musicians, Producers, Dancers & Designers who have come together to promote and support the music we love in this city, and the street culture around it.

Soul of Sydney Block Party is our regular monthly Sunday musical afternoon feast. Focused on a family orientated get together, DJ’s, Record Collectors, B-boys & B-Girls, and musicians come down to share & enjoy some of the music they love in a completely different environment, outside of bars or clubs.

We have an ‘open decks, open mic & open dance floor’ policy just to keep it personal and give everyone a chance to do their thing where locals can come down as our guests outside of a usual club set.

Music styles generally sit at a safe middle ground of Soul, Funk, Disco and a fair bit of Jazz & golden era hip hop stuff too with artists James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, De La Soul, J Dilla, Stevie Wonder, Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Larry Levan amongst the playlist.

SPIRIT OF HOUSE Mixtape – DJ SPINNA LARRY LEVAN DEDICATION MIXTAPE + SUNDAY AFTERNOON WAREHOUSE PARTY – 19 AUGUST


 

As a warm up for the Spirit of House warehouse party here is a pretty sweet Larry Levan Mixtape by the mighty DJ SPINNA! an absolute  gem of a mix feature a stack of seminal funk, disco & early house cuts.

itunes pic

Here’s a mix of some of my personal favorite Larry Levan remixes and productions. Many people in the dance community already understand the role that Larry had on shaping the New York club culture via the legendary Paradise Garage which lasted a little over a decade. I was fortunate enough to experience Larry’s magic in the G the year the club came to an end in 1987. You could only get in as a member and luckily one of the older members on my block was able to make it happen for me. I was in my teens and it literally changed my life forever. I caught that bug…It’s something that’s embedded in your soul for an eternity. I sometimes hear from older members that I should have been around when he was really on fire in the earlier days, but 1987 was good enough for me. The sound system alone was something that I have yet to see duplicated. You could feel the bass in your chest. I remember riding home on the train feeling like I had gone deaf. My ears never rang again like it did that sunday afternoon.

I grew up listening to his music mainly on WBLS via Frankie Crocker and Tony Humphries in the early 80s’ and I have memories of going to my local record store in the neighborhood to buy jams like ‘Let’s Go Dancin” by Sparque and I got ‘My Mind Made Up’ by Instant Funk, both included in this session. As a New Yorker and anyone living in New York in the 80’s you couldn’t really avoid Larry’s work. Some of his work even infiltrated the hip hop world via samples with records like ‘Heartbeat’ by Taana Gardner, ‘7th Heaven’ used in Biggie’s ‘Friend of Mine’ and Central Line’s ‘Walking Into Sunshine’ used in the classic LL Cool J/Marley Marl remix of ‘Jingling Baby.’

Some call it Boogie, some say Disco, and some Garage but at the end of the day it’s straight up good music that you can dance to and enjoy, period! This is part one, more to come shortly.

Uno,
Spinna
