Soulection Episode 300 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjTbCD3coBk

“Founded in 2011 in Los Angeles, CA, Soulection is a global platform moving culture.”

Soulection is a group of creators and curators that have been a foundation in the sounds that I look for since I found some of their artists back in 2011/2012.  Having just celebrated their 6th year, Soulection aims to redefine what it is to be a record label.  They are based in the music and pride themselves on celebrating life by sharing The Sounds of Tomorrow.

The founder, head of the group, and radio host, Joe Kay, has come from broadcasting and curating in his grandmother’s basement to starting the official label with Sony, and now hosts a critically acclaimed radio show on Apple’s premiere streaming service through Beats1.  The show (typically 2 hours each week) was 3 hours in honor of their 300th episode; full of soulful classics, and new sounds that have carried their mission for the past 6 years.

Over the years I have featured many Soulection releases on my show on WRMU (Tuesdays at 10p) Feature Presentation with djFNKYmatt.  Soulection has been an inspiration for the format of my show from my beginnings in 2013.  I have featured artists like SoSuperSam, Mr. Carmack, Monte Booker, Smino, Joe Kay, and Sam Gellaitry.  Tune in this week for new sounds and more inspiration.
