DJ/Producer Jules Habib, aka Inkswel has proven to have traces of funk and a knack for the groove in his DNA. He has compiled a catalogue of essential grooves ranging from boom bap hip-hop to funk n soul. Inkswel’s latest release “Chasing Infinity” is no exception. It’s a album filled with bumpin tracks aided by a star studded lineup. “Everything” is tasty hip-hop featuring veteran rapper Dudley Perkins. “Butterflies” is laid back cosmic funk featuring the familiar falsetto vocals of Steve Spacek. The title track is an infectious dance track with a thumping groove that features veteran House vocalist Oliver Knight. We’re just scratching the surface here as there’s notable contributions from Kylie Audist, Amp Fiddler and more. An energetic album filled with various tempos certain to shake your hips and press repeat.
Producer Dean Zepherin, aka Zepherin Saint has amassed a tremendous collection of soulful afro house compositions over the last decade. The Harrow London native’s second installment of “Soulful Culture” is a delicious blend of soulful and deep house recordings from his Tribe recordings catalog.

The disc kicks off with “Directions” a simmering ten minute synergy of percussion and organ grinding grooves from percussionist Jab. Alex Attias pulls off a rare occurrence of Georgia Anne Muldrow on a house track with the soulful banger “I Wanna Know”. “Sweet Ting” by Trinidadian Deep is one of an array of deep spiritual house gems with lush rhythms on display here. “In The Distance” is an atmospheric soulful house heater from DJ Spinna. There’s far too many tasty house treats to mention here. Frankly, two plus hours of infectious house music never sounded better. Simply put “Soulful Culture Vol 2 is a triumph.
