House music: Legend dictates it's a spiritual thing, a physical thing, a soul thing.
Right now, though, it's best described as a MASSIVE thing. The choice flavour from underground clubs to daytime radio: house music is the undisputed gold standard. Clean Bandit, MK, Breach, Route 94 and Sam Smith have all smashed the number one spot within the last six months while the likes Gorgon City have been achingly close with a sweet spot at number four.
It's clear that after years of bass quaking and speaker shaking, the world's ears are tuned into a silkier, sexier, deeper groove… Still low-end heavy but rooted in timeless house heritage, the current house movement is one that was forecasted three years ago by leading content curator, event holder and tastemaker generals SubSoul.
As well as amassing over 70 million minutes of viewed uploads and over 150,000 subscribers since launching in 2011 SubSoul documented the house explosion with extensive clarity and confidence last summer with their debut self-titled album. Identified by iTunes as one of the best albums of 2013, it acted as a future echo of the soundtrack we're currently immersed in.
Cementing the brand’s voice as an authentic leader in this next-gen house game, SubSoul have followed up their successful debut with an album that's double the weight in future-focused vibes. Boasting crucial cuts from the scene's most exciting creative contributors it's a deep, unyielding adventure that bumps and shuffles from the most sparkling, vocal-fuelled cuts to the thickest, chunkiest bass-heavy flavours.
The ultimate document of where dance music is at in the summer of 2014 and beyond: From Gorgon City's sing-along smash 'Ready For You Love' to the paranoid sub rumbles of New York Transit Authority's '95', each and every sonic shade of house music's latest chapter is foretold with perfectly executed attention to detail.
SubSoul will be celebrating the launch of 'SubSoul 2' at Lightbox, London on June 14 with New York Transit Authority, Low Steppa and some very special surprise guests. This event follows the massive sold-out smash with EZ earlier this year and a roadblock session at Bristol's legendary 1600-capacity Motion late last year. Attendance is crucial: an album of this proportions requires an equally next level send-off… And SubSoul guarantees to deliver.
