IRF Swiss Label Showcase #12
Swiss Soul Club
Mon 1 Sep 2014 @ 20:00 – 24:00 CET
If there’s a prosperous Northern Soul scene somewhere on this planet then it must be in Switzerland. Which other country than wealthy Switzerland could afford record collectors who may as well fork out four-digit sums for one single vinyl 7”? But here in this country it’s not a lack of money, but more of an absence of passion for such an expensive hobby. Except you are a member of the Swiss Soul Club.
This loose collective of DJs (from the entourage of the Spin Club Lucerne and SMART Lion Zurich) is probably everything else than well-heeled but all the more fanatic when it comes to buying and playing records which are not only ultra rare but also get under the skin (meaning not only Northern Soul but also Modern Soul, RnB, Funk, House, Disco and Boogie). For our label showcase we are welcoming SSC members Emel Ilter, Henning Boogaloo, DJ Fu and Florian Matt in our studio. Hopefully they will tell us then also about their own annual Soul Weekender “Not Too Young”, play some mysterious records and most probably convince even more people that Switzerland has lots more Soul than generally ascribed.
All the Swiss Label Showcases are kindly co-presented by GDS.fm – Zurich’s first and only DJ based 24/7 radio station. You can find past and future Drumpoet Community’s monthly shows for GDS.fm here.
