Soul Heaven 10th Anniversary:
The Music. The Parties. The Memories.
House Music Touched By A Decade of Soul…
Revered house institute Soul Heaven get set to celebrate their momentous 10th Anniversary in 2010, not only with a spectacular show at their spiritual home Ministry Of Sound on January 23rd but with a homage to the last 10 years of Soul Heaven with an essential 3 Disc CD Release mixed by the Father of Soul Heaven – Louie Vega.
Resulting from a conversation that Louie Vega had with Oli White (ex Soul Heaven owner), the Soul Heaven parties have consistently been a byword for lovers of soul, disco, house in all its glorious forms for the last 10 years. These legendary parties have attracted the absolute cream of national and international DJ’ing talent such as Kenny Dope, Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Spen, Osunlade, Joe Claussell, Kerri Chandler & Dennis Ferrer, Blaze, Terry Hunter and Danny Krivit, all who have contributed to the Soul Heaven live events or have mixed for legendary series of “Soul Heaven Presents…”
“For the past 10 years, as the world has unfortunately embrace so many less then soulful directions in music, Soul Heaven has been a consistent soul haven, supplying that much needed shot of soul in our musical diets” Danny Krivit
Reaching far further than it’s UK-based home, Soul Heaven has touched down in Ibiza, to Miami hosting sell-out club shows, pool parties or road-blocked events.
On Jan 23rd 2010, Soul Heaven returns to where it all began for their 10th Anniversary album launch party – with host Louie Vega. The distinct soul sirens of Jocelyn Brown and Barbara Tucker join the stellar lineup, performing their respective vocal contributions to the label as well as live versions of some of their biggest hits alongside Phil Asher, Neil Pierce, Aaron Ross Sy Sez & Sean McCabe, with a live PA from Adeola Ranson in the Bar plus a classic set in the Baby Box to commemorate a decade of big tunes and even bigger parties.
“Thank you Soul Heaven for pressing on and keeping the true soul dance music alive. I am humbled to have been a part of this life journey! Much Respect.” Jocelyn Brown
January’s special Ministry of Sound takeover will coincide with the release of “Ten Years of Soul Heaven”, compiled and mixed by Soul Heaven international ambassador Louie Vega. As not only the quintessential music professional, Grammy award winning DJ, Producer, songwriter, label owner & bandleader, Louie Vega was also the seminal originator with the vision to take soulful house to large scale audiences.
Disc one is all about the cutting edge, fresh new sounds that are popular with Soul Heaven.
“I wanted to give you new flava as we always did at Soul Heaven. It’s about good music for us. There are many producers and artists creating hot & fresh music that should be recognized” Louie Vega
Disc 2 reflects the vocal house sound that Soul Heaven is famous for, while Disc 3 is a respectful and nostalgic nod to 10 years of Soul Heaven by Louie, the residents and owner Fleur Woolford, who all choose classic tracks from the last ten years, each chosen with their own special memory.
“Soul Heaven CD3 is made up of Soul Heaven classic tracks chosen by Louie Vega, Phil Asher, Andy Ward, Aaron Ross, Neil Pierce Craig Smith, my partner Kenny Mac & myself. Some tracks are personal to the individual, others are re-occurring favourites that have become signature tunes to all of our lives.” Fleur Woolford
“Ten Years of Soul Heaven” perfectly encapsulates the essence of one of the world’s leading labels by refusing to simply compile a ‘greatest hits’ CD and therefore continuing in the pioneering spirit on which the label is based.
