The Soul of Melbourne

What do you get when you gather together tracks from the cream of Melbourne’s soul/funk acts and slather them all over one record? Well sir, you get The Soul of Melbourne.

These 18 scorching sides were compiled by two men who seriously know their business: Lance Ferguson of the Bamboos and Northside Records’ Chris Gill. There is some stellar talent on display here, from The Bamboos, Chet Faker, Clairy Browne, The Cactus Channel, Saskwatch and more.

So get on board the soul train, people, and find out why these local heroes are becoming world-renowned as some of the hottest groove merchants on the planet.
