Biography

Deep Street Soul are funk DJ & drummer Sol Loco, bass player & soul aficionado Papa ‘J’ Hunter, Cropper lovin’ Matt ‘Guitars’ Green and queen of the keys, the very groovy Ms. Monique. Formed in early 06’ with then man of the 6 string Trev D, deepstreetsoul were all about recapturing some old skool southern flavors they’d all DJ’ed over the previous decade. Inspired by the breakout of nu funk throughout Europe & the States (not forgetting Osaka Monaurail and Melbourne’s own - The Bamboos) they hit the clubs. Starting out with an initial batch of Booker T & Meter’s covers, these quickly morphed into their own set of break filled funk & soul.

Teaming with local funk legend DJ John Idem & DJ Cassandra ArdQ in early 07, they released their first 45’ getdownHQ/deepstreet strut on their JayCee’s label. The 45’ quickly sold out and saw rotation on stations & mixes worldwide. As a result, a new 45’ loose caboose/nasty was cut for JayCee’s early 08’ and has just been released. Also, as a special digital release are 3 tracks on local man-about-town Blair Stafford’s straightup recordings label.

The band have recently signed with Freestyle Records and a full length album is slated for release.
