Soul Clap step up to the fabric compilation series with an eclectic selection to loosen up the dancefloor. With a style that’s distinctively their own, they carve hip hop, funk, soul and disco into a modern house music sound. The Boston raised and NYC based DJ and production duo reach a decade of releases in 2017 and fabric 93 takes the baton from 2016's self-titled artist album and their 2015 EP with seminal funk legend George Clinton.
"While we break out of the 4x4 and explore different beats (from breaks to electro to funk to disco to afro) we always keep our feet planted firmly in house." Soul Clap
Soul Clap have aimed to showcase their many styles into the 70+ minutes of the mix. fabric 93 draws on electronic music that’s futuristic, but still funky as hell - exploring the ideas behind the surge of new synthy, funk-influenced music coming out. The spirit of house is represented from the soulful sounds of Ancient Deep, Ken Gill and Daev Martin, the voice of Life On Planets' vocalist Phil Celeste, to the afro styles of Sol Power All-Stars and Maajo, to the classic samples of Barbara Tucker, Indian Ocean and Storm & Herman.
The compilation is dedicated to the late Derren Smart - close friend and a key promoter who helped spread Soul Clap's vibe via London to the world.
