For those of you that were there last year for the So Much Soul 10 Year Anniversary and the release of Vol.8, you already know what’s comin’….DJ Vinroc & Shortkut do it again…Volume 9! You know we wouldn’t miss this tonight, Friday, March 29th at Slate in San Francisco. Soul music and beyond.
Came across this gem recently…a video mix of 90′s hip hop mixed by Shortkut. With all the new music that has come out, it’s always a breath of fresh air to take a trip back to the 90′s! At least it is for us…A dope mix to listen to and a treat to watch! Thanks Short!
10 years ago 2 DJ’s from The Bay Area got together and dropped a mixtape entitled ‘So Much Soul’. Since then, Vinroc and Shortkut have blessed us with 7 more timeless mixes. This past weekend marked the 10 Year Anniversary of the So Much Soul mix series and we were blessed enough to make the trip out to The Bay and celebrate with some really good people. The vibe was amazing and the music was just that. The night was filled with giveaways from Skull Candy and So Much Soul Clothing while Vinroc and Shortkut played non-stop feel good music for the soul, as well as hitting us with a Whitney Houston tribute set.
Check out the photos from Saturday nights celebration. We were definitely shown love out in The Bay and have to thank Vinroc, Shortkut and the people at SOM for that. It was well worth the trip.
So some of you may or may not know the story behind our name, SO MUCH SOUL. The name initially was inspired by Common’s lyrics in I Used To Love H.E.R. “…and what I love most she had so much soul…” but, we were also HEAVILY influenced by the timeless, extraordinary, classic mixes by Vinroc and Shortkut entitled So Much Soul. These mixes are pretty much the soundtrack to our life.
This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the So Much Soul mixes. We were blessed enough to get in touch with Vinroc and Shortkut and were able to get involved with the anniversary going down this weekend February 11 at SOM in San Francisco. Check out this video by Vinroc, a live version of a track that he produced for the new So Much Soul mix and 10 year Anniversary event.
“My New Years resolution was to be more open about some music I’ve been working on. Here’s a quick rewrite of some lyrics to a song I’ve been working on to celebrate the So Much Soul Mixes 10 year anniversary. Come out this Sat Feb 11th to SOM in the Mission and hear the produced version! get a copy of the new Mix and just added: we will be raffling off a pair of Skullcandy Headphones and some giveaways from So Much Soul Los Angeles! Myself and Jon Shortkut Cruz in the mix. Really, get there early….” -Vinroc
