Defined by a genuine dance music anthem, UK production team Soul Central will always find themselves on hall-of-fame lists on the enduring strength of ‘Strings of Life’: a top 10 UK singles hit, it featured the equally eminent Kathy Brown, turning the iconic into a trailblazer. Never far from a soundsystem after 20 years in the game spent both in the studio and working the industry from different vantage points, Be Yourself Music are proud to announce the Soul Central pair of Paul Timothy and Matt Mckillop as their latest signings.
‘Strings of Life’ may be their signature – Time Out, Mixmag and BBC Radio have ranked it as one of the best house tracks ever made – but Soul Central have proved their worth time and again, featuring on a host of top labels and scaling a house music Mount Rushmore in Defected, MAW, Strictly Rhythm and Ministry of Sound. Exhaustive, unrivalled support from a house music who’s who, ranging from the godfathers of clubland to the upfront elite, has stretched the Soul Central sound across the globe; and their transition from dancefloors to airwaves has been as seamless as converting rapturous reaction into online streams extending into the millions.
Soul Central have regrouped, recharged and are ready to tackle what lies ahead. “It’s great to be joining the Be Yourself Music family, finding a home where we can truly be ourselves. It’s an absolute pleasure to be working with industry experts like Dick de Groot and Nicole Hofman. They completely understand our vision and support Soul Central with a clear plan for the future, connecting our music with the hearts of a global audience”.
Nicole Hofman, Be Yourself’s Creative Music Director, is equally enthusiastic: “We cannot wait to get started with the Soul Central boys. Aside from creating such an iconic tune known the world over, their reputation on dancefloors as well as their knowledge of the ins and outs of the scene is second to none; and their signing to Be Yourself Music is something of a coup where we can both push onwards and upwards”.
With their passionate Be Yourself Music debut ‘Matador’ making its way to the stage, watch Soul Central take the bull by the horns and cement their standing with more club grooves for the connoisseur.
