    Default UK Soul : Soundsystem Classics

    During the late 80's and early 90's, there quite a few UK soul records that were aimed at sound systems or at least played heavily by some sounds. I think this sort of stuff developed in parallel with jungle, often using the same breaks.

    Perhaps the most notable examples are from Soul II Soul and Wild Bunch who came from a sound system background. What Iím keen to dig out is those striped down bass heavy tracks with sweet vocals. (Of course there was US stuff played as well so I guess some of those will be included too)

    I was proper skint at the time so didn't buy much music so I can only go on memory about what was around.

    For example, this by Hard Rock Soul Movement.

    This one is a classic. Sounded brilliant on a soundsystem, it's got just the right amount of 'space'.

    Another Bacharach cover. No idea if it was played on UK soundsystems but it fits here I think
