This is a sad time for all soulful house & Jazz lovers as some people may not be aware that Ethan White the keyboard player for Tortured Soul has passed away at the age of 39 .
It’s my way of showing my respect to his family and band members of uploading this mix that I did back in 2009. They are still one of my favourite live bands that i’ve seen.
Here is extract from Soul Tracks.
As we wrote about them when they broke out a decade ago: It would be an understatement to say that Soul Music and House Music have not always peacefully coexisted. To many Soul purists, House (like Disco before it) was like a musical one-night stand. It often tried to capture specific pleasurable elements of Soul but ended up gutting much of the emotional element that Soul brings -- you could dance to it, but you didn't feel it inside. And it didn't help that much of House was overtly mechanical and lyrically vacuous, removing the human and spiritual elements that were at the heart of Soul. Into this mix Tortured Soul came, with the premise of creating Live House Music. Tortured Soul's goal was to bring additional Jazz and Soul elements to House (hence, the appropriate group name), and to move the genre beyond the mechanistic and into a more interesting and listenable blend. Make no mistake, Tortured Soul's music is directly aimed at the dance floor, and that's okay. But they have pulled off the impressive feet of making music that's also engaging outside of the club -- something that is just as fun to listen to in your car or your house.

Future Of Soul brings a new sound, one that pulls from soul, rnb, jazz , future bass, hip hop and broken beats fusing them together with seamless vocals chops and grooves. Provides the backdrop for that much needed day/night drive to clear the mind. In this mix I wanted to capture different elements of hip-hop beats. These songs bump, but at the same time, have that coolness to it. This way people can groove to it and at the same time, reflect on things. Drop these tunes to revitalise and get your mind right.

Just recently came back from a snowboarding holiday and had the privilege to dj at one of the main night clubs at Bansko (Oxygen). Thanks to Alex whom he wanted slightly different touch to the main stream music. Charm, great quality food and drink, a breath taking mountain playground, friendly and beautiful faces and of course the non-stop music, which neighbouring towns can just about hear… What’s not to love?

Feels a long time since my last mix. As usual i’ve been really busy and due to the popularity of my podcast show, if downloads exceeds 500GB then I can’t upload until my bandwidth is reset every 18th of the month and I have to delete one of my mixes. It’s never nice to remove any of my mixes buts thats podomatic for you !!!.
Anyhow good news I have a deep soulful mix (sorry no track list may i’m too lazy to upload the track list lol) supplemented by sultry & powerful beats, a mesmerizing baseline, beautiful strings and chords.
Turn this one up! I’ve had 3 weeks of jamming to this 1 pure Bliss

Before I start, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the full support from around the globe. I have reached over 230,000 downloads in 2014, which is incredible to believe that my mixes reach out across all continents.
This mix incorporates the up and coming talent — bedroom producers / djs that are inspired by the old skool RnB and who put a unique twist of their sounds into the future of soul.
Wishing you all Merry Christmas
Peace N Greetings
