Ten Hours of Mixes Curated by Soulection DJ's

Monty Love

The family is multifaceted – producers, DJ's, photographers, graphic designers, communication artists, tech specialists and the list goes on. We've always celebrated diversity in the crew and will continue to shine light on all forms of creative expression. This week we focus on the art of DJing.

We've tapped our in-house DJ's and extended Soulection family to hand pick music and mix together seamlessly for a 'Soulection & Chill' bundle.

The bundle includes 8 diverse mixes and a muted pink and white embroidered hat from Soulection Supply.

Click on the image above to download the entire bundle or selected mix and to learn about the DJ's behind the music.

 

EXCLUSIVE SOULECTION AND CHILL HAT

Soulection Supply - A Fully Functional Collection of Lifestyle Goods.

Monty Love

We've been pretty quiet on the storefront working behind the scenes for the past few months to bring Soulection Supply, a brand new collection to life.

The process has been one that has involved our entire team from internal operations to some of the Soulection Supply designs being created by various artists like Sango and TKAY Two.

We wanted to capture the Soulection culture - doing what we love while wearing what we love.

As for fit and design, Soulection Supply Goods were intended as unisex apparel – the color palette carries neutral classic tones throughout, with key winter/spring transitional pieces. We've recreated the classic graphic tee's, embroidered everyday hats, added a black wax candle as well as a few cut and sew pieces.

We really hope you enjoy the new Soulection Supply.

200K Soundcloud Followers - THANK YOU!

Monty Love

Whether you've been around since day one or you're just tuning in, we appreciate you.

This week marks the support of 200,000 listeners on Soundcloud. Thank you. It's a very special milestone for us and our worldwide community.

To show our gratitude: 
– We've curated a compilation of Sade inspired sounds. (Download Below)
– We're made our entire discography available for free for 24 hours.
– Using special code: soulection200k our entire Soulection Store was 20% off, for 24 hours. 

We look forward to continuing on our journey with you as we collectively push honest music, encourage each other to stay creative and really just inspire others to do what they love.

The 'Love Is King' compilation is a tribute to one of our favorite artists, Sade. The British, Nigerian singer, songwriter and composer has always had a timeless, nostalgic and chilled out sound. We've all grown up with her in the background as many of our parents raised us on Sade. Her style/songwriting just makes you feel at ease, comfortable and is familiar.

Sam Gellaitry: Short Stories

Monty Love

We are so excited to welcome Sam G into the family and spread the Sound of tomorrow with Short Stories - so welcome, officially, tShort Stories by Sam Gellaitry. 

Short Stories defies traditional notions of what it is to create 'electronic music' traveling through uptempo house, heavy bass, UK-garage, hip hop and soulful vibes - in 5 succinct stories. 

Sam Gellaitry is the 18 year old from Stirling, [central] Scotland - where the "culture" part of the wiki section reads one line. Culture in the form of music however, is plentiful and diverse in Sam's case – drawing on influences from Madlib and Jamiroquai to Flying Lotus, Röyksopp, Hudson Mohawke, Mr. Carmack and Outkast. 

By the time Sam was 16, he'd learned to engineer and master audio which might shed some light on his unique song structure and diverse journey through many genres apparent in the course of one single track. Sam marries his love and knowledge of bass guitar, synthesizer and piano with honed production skills to create seamless heavy hitting electronic music that retains raw instrumental elements and evokes a certain happiness and soulful connectedness. With a father who has a background in making bagpipes amongst other talents and Mum - a former band member playing guitar and singing, it's really no surprise that Sam's magical ears give him the ability to translate 5+ genres seamlessly into one beautiful song or 'Short Story'.

Have you heard Short Stories' single "Temple"? Here you are. With initial sounds of the phone ringing off the hook and a dreamy synth progression on "Temple", Sam ropes you in and then immediately hits the listener with an automatic headbanger all whilst maintaining a dreamy and steadily uptempo vibe which happens to be a nice indicator of what you'll get on Short Stories.

Sam Gellaitry Shares His First Short Story with '"Temple"

Monty Love

Today we officially introduce you to our newest family member, Sam Gellaitry. Setting the stage for his first EP, Short Stories (2/17/15), Sam shares single, "Temple", foreshadowing what's to come on his long-awaited 5-track EP. With initial sounds of the phone ringing off the hook and a dreamy synth progression on "Temple", Sam ropes you in and then immediately hits the listener with an automatic headbanger all whilst maintaining a dreamy and steadily uptempo vibe.

It's been a long time coming and today we are so super excited to announce the latest addition to our family, SoSuperSam a.k.a Samantha Duenas. 

Aside from being a sweetheart, a goofball of epic proportion and a style icon (according to Vanity Fair and Hypebeast), Sam is an extremely dope DJ, singer and [professional] dancer. With hip hop roots, Sam effortlessly parlays her classic vinyl dj skills into her live sets and mixtapes weaving in electronic grooves, dance classics, rnb and party jamz.

Miss Duenas is a go-to entertainer for several lifestyle and fashion-based brands nationally and resides in our hometown, LA. You'll see this little lady playing more and more Soulection events globally but you can always catch her weekly at SOHO house in Hollywood as well as party down with her at the monthly she co-founded with her awesome team, 143 (means "I love you" in page code, duh).

Check out Heart Rate, the latest uptempo mix Sam put together in celebration of the news.
