Red Rack'em (Bergerac Records)

We've invited our old mucker Red Rack'em, from Bergerac Records, to celebrate with us. Astonishingly, he last played for us way back in 2009 so is long overdue a return visit.
With a fanbase that ranges from Elton John to DJ Harvey, Red Rack'em's twisted productions have been turning heads for years now and we're big fans here at Soul Buggin' towers. He launched his "How I program" music masterclass series in 2020 that's gone on to build a great community and attracted some stellar guest programmers. He's played just about everywhere from Berlin to Bristol and his DJ sets straddle everything from house, disco, broken beats, nu wave, techno, boogie, jazz, soul, hip hop and everything in between.
Come get loose in a basement with us.

The night DJ Spinna played a little basement in Nottingham...

There've been a few nights over the years where we've had to pinch ourselves at Soul Buggin'.

The first time Ashley Beedle came to play Moog in 2011, Andrew Weatherall laying down the cosmic chug at our 9th birthday in 2013 and of course when we flew Recloose over (not once but twice!) are only a few that spring to mind (there are loads if we're honest) but our 15th birthday party last month can most definitely join the list.

At our very heart as you've probably already guessed by now we're just a bunch of record nerds, we're not full time promoters and we don't do this as a job but toying with the idea of bringing DJ Spinna over from New York to our party in Nottingham had us salivating like a dog that hadn't been fed for a week. We've tried for a few years to make it happen but as these things go the planets hadn't quite aligned but when things fell into place for our 15th birthday we started to get very excited indeed. Whether it be his DJ sets, his production work or simply his stellar series of numerous complications, DJ Spinna has been an inspiration to all four of us for as long as we can remember so when it came to announcing the night, to say we were buzzing our bits off was an understatement.

Big thanks to all who came down, DJ Spinna for playing a blinder, Trade for hosting us and Andre who shot some great highlights. It'll be one for the history books for sure.

Farmyard Soul Session

Saturday 6 July 12pm-5pm
Rough Trade, Broad Street, Nottingham

DJs: Wrighty, Beane, Mark A, Elmo and Mouse

Stonebridge City Farm is our slice of the countryside in the heart of the city. They are a visitor attraction for all the family, that is fully inclusive to the local and wider community. They also provide a safe and supportive education centre offering volunteering and placement opportunities for people whatever their educational needs.

Stonebridge City Farm is a charity and does not charge entry (although donations are suggested) but instead relies on generous donations from visitors, businesses and the community. They are currently fundraising to help them through the winter months.

We feel that Stonebridge City Farm is a vital important a part of Nottingham and it's community and as such we, at Soul Buggin', got together with some friends (Make to Make and The South Nottingham Soul Society) to help them with their fundraising. Although we are not charging entry to this event we would like you to dig deep and donate whatever you can. Thanks

Incoming Eglo antics...

2018's is almost over but we've already got our eyes on 2019 and are super excited to announce we're bringing one of the UK’s finest DJ’s to Soul Buggin’, Alexander Nut from Eglo Records

Alexander Nut has made a name for himself as one of the UK’s most diverse and influential Dj’s. Having honed his skills at London’s legendary Plastic People nightclub, and though 8 years of broadcasting on the then pirate Rinse FM and more recently NTS Radio, the highly respected DJ's unique vision has seen him play to some of the finest dance floors around the globe.

An avid record collector, uninhibited by tempo or time zone, his expansive taste and knowledge draws heavy on influences from House, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, Afrobeat, Reggae and Funk. Alex is also the man behind Eglo Records, the label he co-founded with Floating Points in 2008, after discovering and managing the then emerging artist. Eglo is home to some of the most exciting, forward thinking music coming out of the UK. Responsible for seminal releases from Henry Wu, Fatima, Funkineven, Byron The Aquarius, Dego & Kaidi, Steve Spacek, Shafiq Husayn and Anderson Paak plus many more.
