Seamus Haji celebrates the 10 year anniversary of Big Love subsidiary label Soul Love with a look back at some of the more soulful & funkier releases on both labels across two bonus DJ mixes.
Mix 1 features some of the bigger moments with label favourites Belezamusica aka Bah Samba producer Julian Bendall, Haji & Emanuel, Dave Spoon, Scape and some of Seamus Haji’s more soulful & funky productions under his Mekkah, I-Jah & Big Bang Theory monikers. The Layabouts, StoneBridge, Sean McCabe, John Julius Knight & Funkagenda feature on some stunning remixes as well as some fine vocalists such as UK soul diva Beverly Knight, D’Empress (Moby & Goldie Fame), Alice Russell (Bah Samba), Bryan Chambers, Erire & Stephen Granville. We’ve also included some of Seamus’ remixes for other labels that fit perfectly with this mix such as Bah Samba’s stunning Teena Marie cover from a few years back to the more recent gospel gem by UK star Donae’O.
Mix 2 maintains the quality with top releases from Those Guys, Hardsoul, Nova Fronteira, Mr Hermano, Lorenz Rhode, The Montanas and Polyphonics most of which have been given Seamus’ midas touch on the remix. Many of his collaborations with Paul Emanuel, Timmy Vegas, Def-E (The Beginnerz) and work under another moniker Undercover Lover are included in the release and once again, more top vocalists appear with the likes of house legend Robert Owens, Pete Simpson (Sunburst Band), Chicago legend Ron Carroll & the UK’s Stephen Granville. It also features Soul Love’s biggest release to date “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life” re-worked by ATFC, as well as the sublime “Back Together” Seamus Haji Remix and let’s not forget the more recent, excellent remix by Sean McCabe on Belezamusica’s “Everybody Loves the Sunshine”. Dimitri From Paris also features here with his Re-Edit of “I Walk Alone” as well as the excellent Hott 22 Remix of “Play It”.
All in all, here we have 28 tracks that have seen Big Love’s sister label Soul Love become a staple in many discerning DJ’s sets with generations old & new.
10 Years of Soul Love is now available from all major online digital retailers, including Beatport, Juno and iTunes.
