A throwback mix originally recorded last year to celebrate the music of the Back bar in Sir Henrys, where i played for many years

The info on part 1 is relevant on this too but just to add, there were simply too much tunes to go through again! It starts off with a few artists who proceeded to help dominate the decade after the 90s. Timbaland and Pharrell, and it continues with some mellow old skool soul before the regular hip-hop and r&b vibes that I used play in the Back Bar. There are a number of big middle of the road pop tunes too, and it's important to remember, back when it was harder to get exactly the music I wanted, and when I was trying to break this sound in Cork, the pop stuff helped make it accessible too. This is particularly true of the early 90s. Plus, most of them are great tunes. I haven't listened back and i'm sure there's a few mistakes, but i'm nostalgia'd out of it and am gonna upload it as it was made, 3 hours of music live in the mix. Enjoy!

I've got a big gig at my favourite festival this week so i've decided to do a little mix to preview it! It was meant to be a straight up soul mix but as usual the records took me somewhere else!

Here's some details on the gig

Stevie G presents: The Deep South Soul Sound System featuring Christiana, Senita and Laura plus special guests. The Cork Dj and producer is going to unleash stacks of funky vibes in a wide ranging set that’s common denominator will be soul! Accompanied by some fine Cork based singers, adding a live element to the proceedings as he joins the dots between many different genres, old and new, perfect for a Saturday Body & Soul! Stevie G has been holding it down in the deep south and beyond since the early 90’s. His signature sound combines hip-hop, r&b, jazz, disco and reggae but it’s always soulful. He has actively promoted this music in clubs, radio and at festivals including Body & Soul since our early days.He is about to release some original music this summer on his own label and he will be joined by some of his favourite Cork based singers plus special guests. Christiana Underwood features on his debut release, Senita Appiakorang has managed to combine some high profile guest spots wit Daithi with her own soul and funk band Shookrah in Cork and Laura O’Callaghan is currently laying down some vocals with another funk orientated project that Stevie hopes to unleash in 2014!

What it says on the tin really. Recorded about 5 years ago and uploaded to make the 30th anniversary of the his death, and indeed his birthday this week.


I recorded this mix just after the King of Pop passed away for RedFM. It contains a lot of lessor known early gems with some of the classics and concentrates mainly on his more soul orientated material! I hope you enjoy it!

This is the first time i've uploaded this mix that i recorded in May 2011, just after the great man passed away. It was recorded for the radio but i've left the music speak for itself here and one of the godfathers of hip-hop can speak for himself better than I can! This is some of the most important music of all time not just for me but for many others, and I'd like to thank Gil Scott Heron for inspiring me since I first heard him as a teenager.

I have no tracklist right now but most of these are easy enough to find with a little digging.

This is a mix of mainly new and modern soul. We all love the classics but there’s nothing as exciting for a DJ as playing new music and for many years soul music was strangled by it’s rich past. When I first starting playing this music in the early and mid 90’s it was at the beginning of a new era in some ways.
Soul music was finding it hard to escape the rich legacy of the 60’s and 70’s and it had become a loss less organic in the 80’s. At the time, the better 80s stuff was unfashionable, and it wasn’t until the music started taking a street edge from hip-hop, that new soul music came back into focus and relevance. UK acts like Loose Ends, Soul 11 Soul, Young Disciples and Omar were all very big influences in the early 90s.
New Jack Swing helped pave the way, but by the time time Mary J Blige, SWV, Zhane and the likes came through with even more hip-hop swagger, it was clear things were hotting up! Soon we had D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill and later Jill Scott reaching big heights, and even music critics took the music seriously again. Neo Soul was a corny term, but with big players such as Dilla, James Poyser, The Roots, Raphael Saadiq pulling the strings, the music enjoyed somewhat of a renaissance.
Over the last 15 years, as with all music, fashions and trends came and went, but there has always been good soul music bubbling too. As usual, the music industry hasn’t always been kind to the best acts, but there have been many breakthroughs too, and the influence of soul music even on the pop charts has been notable. On this mix I’ve taken a snapshot of mainly new enough or recent recordings, to highlight the increased relevance of what I loosely describe as soul music in 2013.
Lessor known talents such as Josef Salvat, who I recently only discovered playing Body and Soul at the Electric Picnic, feature alongside prolific underground stalwarts like Georgia Anne Muldrow. Big names feature too, and I’ve always been interested in how singers such Janelle Monae and Solange are forging their own paths, while guys like Miguel and Frank Ocean are simply making some of the best soul music i’ve heard since Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.
UK soul is rich in diversity and talent, as seen here by SBTRKT, Disclosure, London Grammar, Jessie Ware and Jai Paul, while the amazing Amy Winehouse merits an inclusion with probably the oldest track here. The Drake track is gonna be a big hit by the time this mix surfaces, but the greats like Marvin and Aretha had many hits too, and good music is good music I guess. The Ayah and Keri Hilson are straight up poppy r&b cuts, while Inc, THEESatisfaction and Toro Y Moi and others all thread unique music paths.
Sa-Ra are one of the great left-field groups killing it over many years, while the mighty Dam-Funk managed to coax Slave legend Steve Arrington into helping him create my own personal favourite soul album of 2013. Mayer Hawthorne has just turned in his most assured full length album yet, while Bilal is another one time “next big thing” who has stubbornly foraged his own path outside of the media spotlight.
I didn’t even have time to include the ever green Charles Bradley, Lee Fields and Sharon Jones, all artists who had to bide their time before gaining the recognition they deserve. There’s also nothing from Waajeed, Tiombe Lockhart, Raphael Saadiq, Esperanza Spalding, or a whole host of other relevant artists keeping it soulful in 2013. This is but an introduction, and it will hopefully lead a couple of you to dig out some new music for the mind, body and the soul!
