Soul Clap
Crosstown Rebels

Crosstown Rebels are delighted to announce the debut label release from purveyors of the E-Funk, the mighty Soul Clap.

The unstoppable duo Soul Clap make their debut on one of the freshest underground labels, Crosstown Rebels, showcasing their irresistible blend of funk inspired house music that appeals to all music lovers.

Title track and lead on EP, 'Action/Satisfaction' has been wetting the soles of international feet worldwide, appearing on Soul Clap's infamous Miami mix CD and is a prime example of the duo's unique ability to fuse elements of melodic soul, groovy funk, hip-hop, all through the medium of underground house. A2, and 'Break 4 Life' up's the tempo and makes some clever use of a familiar sample to devastating effect. An amazing drop and a funk fuelled groove that works a treat on the floor. Beat heads will recognise the urban spirit of Inner City Life, and in a hands across the ocean meeting of house and jungle, the legend that is Goldie has given Soul Clap his seal of approval.

One half of My My and master of the remix, Lee Jones transforms the title track into a bubbling blend of enticing house music, creating a heady, hallucinogenic hot ass remix. Finally the last track is a slew of samples and choppy beats creating a raw, urban edge in the final track, 'Noneadatwhitestar'. Featuring Charlie's room mate G. Titty, this slice steps down in tempo while still keeping a booty shaking dancefloor essence.

Soul Clap are always pushing new boundaries, always traveling through time and space, decades of experience has prepared Elyte and Cynce to free your mind, and your ass will follow. By harnessing the past, Soul Clap looks to the future, drawing a outbreak of recent attention with their forward thinking productions, remixes and edits on Brooklyn's Wolf + Lamb, Airdrop Records, Culprit, and many more. With an album in the works and appeal across many musical boundaries, Soul Clap are reaching far beyond traditional dance music fields. Their creative DJ sets have taken them far from their Boston base and they continue to stage groundbreaking parties on home turf. Soul Clap's training goes beyond history lessons to mastering all the elements of the DJ and producer: knowledge, mixing, programming, performance and experience - instilled with the sounds of New York, Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia while fostering an addiction to crate-digging, that has become a worldwide quest to acquire and create the best music.

Damian Lazarus says of the EP; "I am so happy to release Soul Clap, two of the funniest & talented boys in dance music, coming with something fresh for all our ears & their ability to fuse all of my favourite musical areas, house soul & jungle, all in one record, is off the scale. I think people are going to love this!�
