Soul Clap Release “Timespent” Single from Forthcoming Self-Titled Album – Due out Friday, Oct 14th



Up next from from Soul Clap’s self-titled sophomore LP is an uptempo house jam featuring Phil Celeste of Life On Planets.  Originally written as a homage to the swing and bass of UK Garage, Timespent is a collaboration between Soul Clap’s beats/melodies and the creative male vocal stylings of Baltimore based Celeste the singer and guitarist of Life On Planets.

“The chords, bass line, melodies and sound effects for Timespent were made almost exclusively with the Yamaha DX100, an FM synth from the 80’s which gives the song a real throwback feel.  But the drums bring it to the future, swung hard, using Roland TR-8.  On top of the track, Phil Celeste brings his distinct jazzy/R&B approach to tell the story of relationships gone wrong and time wasted on love abandoned.  The result is one of our favorites from the album, a piece of music clearly influenced by the past, but sounding even more fresh in the present.”Soul Clap

Starting out cutting their teeth in the early rave scene in Boston, they soon found fame through a series of edits and became household names through notable releases including a DJ Kicks alongside close allies Wolf + Lamb and their electric first album called EFUNK. The title, which stands for Everybody’s Freaky Under Nature’s Kingdom, and sounds like modern electronic funk, became their calling card. EFUNK is a bridge between the discerning futurism of underground dance and the charisma and boldness of funk and pop culture. For Charlie funk is his foundation, for Eli it’s jazz, and as their infamous Yoyoyo 90’s Jam parties testified (playing only classics from the era), they have the ability to transform and lead in more than one movement.
