Crew Love Boston fam Tanner Ross is back for his 3rd Adventure with us recorded live opening for Nick Monaco at The Cantab in Cambridge a couple months back. Since we all know him already we’ll just give you links to the other 2 mixes he’s done for the podcast cause they’re so dope and we know you’ll be hungry for more when you finish this one. Here’s Episode 90 and Episode 23.
It’s not very often that we get our whole DJ Kicks band (Wolf + Lamb and us) together these days. So we were pretty excited when we were offered the opportunity to do a month long Wolf + Lamb vs Soul Clap tour in Australia and Japan this January. And of course it was a month to remember! From a New Years eve/day triple header in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney (Let Them Eat Cake in Melbourne is one of the best festivals in the world!), to pool, island and opera house party vibes and an epic last night at Spice Cellar in Sydney, to an over-sold night of madness in Hong Kong, there were a ton of highlights. But nothing was more special than our first WLSC show together in Tokyo. The night was organized at Club Air by our long time Japanese sister Mio from LiLiTH the Party and after Naoki Serizawa worked his usual opening magic, we proceeded to play for 9+ hours on one of the best sound systems we’ve ever had the pleasure to perform on. It’s the first time since the epic Modern Love Affair mix that WLSC was recorded all together and in the tradition of that classic mix, part 1 is available over at the Wolf + Lamb Podcast. Now for your listening pleasure here’s part 2…
Weren’t there for our big Crew Love bash at London’s Village Underground? No worries because you can relive the magic with the power of YouTube! Check it out:

Flashback to summer. Living in Berlin and losing many days at the legendary and now sadly, closed Bar25. The thing about Bar25 was that no one really knew when the party started or ended. Wednesday til Tuesday? Probably, and lucky for us we got to be a part of the closing summer of one of the most magical places we’ve ever seen. Sure, we could wax poetic about this special place for days, but you’re better off checking out the trailer for their upcoming film about the bar. We played in various area on the grounds 3 times over the summer (including the closing, which has to be one of the craziest parties the world has ever seen), but the most magical for us was opening for Nico at the beginning of September on a rainy Monday evening.
As they say, “Monday is Sunday” and it couldn’t be more true. The bar room was almost empty when we began our 4 hour journey at 6pm. It was raining and the pounding techno all day had scared many people away, but some of us had been there for days already and there was magic in the air. What you get here is the first couple hours as we set the mood and the room fills up. We went through a selection of our favorite (mostly vinyl) tracks of the summer and then turned to each other and said “wait all this music is about love”, which really is what the summer is about. Summer Camp 2010 4EVA! We love you <3

Bonus Episode: Soul Clap Live @ Midweek Techno April 2010
When we first made it to Made Event‘s now legendary WMC closing bash 4 years ago we we’re completely blown away. The party was still at the now defunct (and sorely missed) Pawn Shop parking lot and I’m pretty sure Sunday School was the only day of the year they opened up out there, so it was really special. It was basically way too packed with the hot ass sun cooking your ass while getting absolutely mental to the most upfront house/techno DJs in the world and boy did it leave a lasting impression. While, some people complained when the event moved to Ice Palace in ’09, I think the added grassyness and extra space outside made the new digs an even more fun place to party, plus having the inside area in a massive warehouse space is the perfect environment for slamming Adam Beyer style techno.
Needless to say, when we were asked to play Sunday School this year we were totally honored and blown away and when we found out we got the 9:30-11am outside set time we were even more excited. If you know us, you know this is pretty much our dream gig and time slot, so we immediately got to work preparing the perfect set to reach the more techno oriented crowd, but still showcase our unique sound. Saturday night we hit the sack super early, got up fresh at 6am, hit Latin Cafe 2000 for breakfast sandwiches and Cuban coffee and headed down to get in the morning time vibes. It was a bit cloudy all day but there were some amazing moments when the floaty jams brought out the sun, the crowd response was beyond anything we could have imagined and we even ended up with this here awesome recording to share with everyone! Most of all, thanks to the entire Made Event team for being super pro, all our friends for getting up early/staying up late and smiling and going crazy in front of the booth, Zoe for being Ms America, DJ T for dancing on stage the whole time and of course Betty Kang. We can’t do it without all yalls support 🙂
The Adventures of Soul Clap Episode 70: Soul Clap Live at Sunday School For Degenerates
Right before Thanksgiving we did a mini US tour of New York, Chicago and Detroit and it felt pretty amazing. Everywhere we went we debuted new Soul Clap music and every time people went crazy. It really blew our minds to get such a great response in America, especially at such an American time as Thanksgiving. I’m not going to get into a discussion about the moral implications of t-day, but I will say it’s a special time for family and friends to get together here in the states so it meant alot for us to get so much love in our home country. Now, before it’s too late we wanted to give you, our beloved listeners all over the world a taste of what our pre t-day tour sounded like. This recording is the first hour of our 3 hour, early morning set at Brooklyn’s Market Hotel for Airdrop’s Late Supper. It features a bunch of exclusive new Soul Clap music, some of which has been released, but mostly is forthcoming and never coming out. Part 3 of the mix is a bit deeper for the sunrise and should be coming out on Airdrop’s Airpod in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.
