like a midsummers dream filled with EFUNK, we need to be pinched to believe this Crew Love Barcelona ’14 after video! the sun, the vibes, the dancing, the love… we’re so lucky to have so many fans to spread the Crew Love waves around the world!
we think Discobelle nailed it right on the head when they described David Marston’s remix of our new tune Misty… “We here at Discobelle are very happy to provide our readers with the free download of the super smooth and funky slo-mo remix from Soul Clap fam David Marston that should be played late at night when you’re in the mood for love.”
According to to Vice Blog THUMP this new tune we cooked up with the legend himself Robert Owens will get your ears pregnant, so watch out! Peep it below! Read it on THUMP.
We’ve got our trapper keepers and a boxes of pencils ready and the flyest back 2 school gear… BUT MOM, is the summer over already?!?! It’s ok cause Soul Clap is coming to your local sock hop… LET’S GET FUNKY!
You asked for it, and we’re back on the the white isle with our funkiest party yet. This September we’re touching down for the first time at our new natural Ibiza habitat, the Pikes Pool. And we’ve got even more to celebrate: the release of our new single, Misty featuring Robert Owens. Real music, no cover, barbecue, smiles and of course that funk that only Soul Clap can bring to your trunk.
time to pack on that lipstick & unfurl your freak flag, cuz Nick Monaco is coming to a dance floor near you! hot off the release of his debut album Mating Call (lovingly presented by our own Soul Clap Records), Nick’s tour is well underway!
One of the reasons we started SOUL CLAP RECORDS in 2012 was because this kid from the Bay Area kept sending us this music that uniquely blended house, funk and bass. Now, 2 years later, that kid, known to the world as Nick Monaco, has proved to be oh so much more than just an amazing producer. His energy and talent has filled our lives with love and now brought into the world the FIRST ALBUM release on our label, Nick’s MATING CALL, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you!

It was just about two years ago that we heard a C.love mix for the first time and immediately fell in love with her unique style of music collage. One of her mixes is not your average listening experience, but a journey through many styles of music all twisted together to make new compositions. Take for example, Amour et Venin, which we posted here on the Adventures Of Soul Clap early last year. 25 tracks, in 2 parts, over only 40 or so minutes. It’s not just music to your ears it’s actually a meditative listening experience.
Over the last two years we’ve gotten to know the special talent that is C.love on a more intimate level. Playing and signing her edits to our Gator Boots label, hearing her original music develop, and most importantly hanging out as homies. We can’t get enough of her good vibes and musical ideas, so we’re back already with another super special DJ collage to celebrate her upcoming tour in Europe. So close your eyes and get ready for a journey.
