There’s nothing we love more here on The Adventures Of Soul Clap, than shining the light on upcoming talent, and not only is Jack Priest a name to watch in this game, he’s also been contributing to Crew Love for quite awhile now. As our only UK operative he plays an integral role, repping the crew in merry olde England, but his biggest talent is his knack for edits. From Human League, to Eartha Kitt, to Conan Mockasin, to Love and Rockets, Jack’s reinterpreted jams for many a dancefloor. He’s dropped a bunch of these signature edits on the Crew Love site and an edit 12″ on Wolf + Lamb Black. Now he steps up for an eclectic mix of jams for the podcast. Get to know Jack Priest.

This month the podcast is finally back with more episodes! First up Psolomon Williams aka Absence who we were first introduced to when he rapped on beats by Tanner Ross and Jules Born. Now, as Absence he’s DJing free form house music and we’re happy to share the sounds with you.
Born and Raised in Virginia Beach Virginia, Psolomon Williams aka Absence grew up playing piano at a very young age. In his early teenage years absence created and participated in medal core and hardcore bands. After relocating to Miami in 2011 he first became immersed in house music culture by frequenting venues like The Electric Pickle and Treehouse. Grounded in his Virginia roots along with the cultural melting pot of his Miami surroundings, Absence began to experiment with his music blending electronic, hip hop and elements of Jazz with the song structure of metal.

“Positivity, tolerance and love are in short supply right now. When Amy sang this song, she was going through a really tough time. The creation of this song was a therapeutic process. It has served that purpose several times. The first time we performed it live, during a Pride-related event, unbeknownst to us, the Orlando nightclub massacre was taking place across the country. The next day I thought about that moment and listened back to the song and wondered where to find hope.
This song was supposed to come out several months from now but Eli [from Soul Clap] contacted me on Wednesday morning and we agreed, we need to share our therapy with you sooner, rather than later. In Amy’s words, “for all of the songs that have come before, begging and pleading with our humanity to be better to each other, it would seem it’s not enough, so we wrote one more.” – Michael The Lion
