Next generation of LA beat kids hit the road this spring.
Based out of Los Angeles, where co-founder Joe Kay resides, Soulection is a collective of young producers and DJs who in the past few years have used the internet to spread their wings globally, in the process setting themselves up as direct descendants of Low End Theory’s beatmaking progeny.
The label has released music from artists based in America, Europe, Australia and Japan including the likes of Taku, Sango and Mr Carmack. Originally they made the most of Bandcamp and Soundcloud as platforms to not only discover talent but also promote it. After a couple years things started coming together and today the label has a sizeable worldwide online following and an increasing presence in L.A and beyond with physical releases, parties and a regular radio show.
Following from a recent Japan tour the collective is now headed to Europe for a tour taking in nine countries, including a Boiler Room date in London. The tour features founder Joe Kay, The Whooligan and two of their most popular artists, Mr Carmack and ESTA. Each date will also feature local talents affiliated with the label including Germany’s IAMNOBODI, Holland’s jarreau vandal, London’s Faith and Manchester’s Sivey.
