Google+ Beathearts: Foster/Magic Riot - UK street soul mixtape


Foster/Magic Riot - UK street soul mixtape

Following last weeks Beathearts exclusive funky 80's edit from MKRBT I've had a serious relapse of 80's UK street soul. I've never seen a proper definition of what defines UK street soul but there's a Facebook page that formulated it quite nicely:

"UK Street soul is the often overlooked and slept on soul sound of the UK. It's kind of like the UK's more soulful and delicate answer to the New Jack Swing sound. It was mostly produced in the UK in the late 80's and early 90's."

I've been listening to mixtapes with Loose Ends, Driza Bone, Blacksmith et al. non-stop for a couple of days now and I thought it was about time I'd share one of the better tapes I've found.

It's put together by a Foster/Magic Riot from Switzerland. We haven't been able to get a full tracklist (yet!) but it's smoothly beatmixed and a splendid selection of tracks. And before you say anything, yes I realize all the tracks are not from the UK but I still feel it represents that sound.

Foster/Magic Riot:

"Messin' around with some extended versions & instrumentals of 80s soul/r'n'b records. Maybe the right soundtrack for driving to your summer holiday. attention: heavy use of 808 and DX7 sounds!
