Turntable Lab Radio 033: Soul Clap

14677370_1058922450895699_1989155210550837248_n

After debuting EFUNK: The Album in 2012, Soul Clap unveiled its sophomore full-length at the end of 2016. Eli & Charlie have been busy touring and dropping one-off singles/remixes during the 4 years in-between, but more importantly, they wanted to take their time to let the sound/vibe of the self-titled 12-tracker really “mature” (and trust, that is a good thing). To celebrate the release, the Boston duo stopped by our East Village storefront for an in-store set a few months back, and you can now listen to the dudes’ selections on the latest episode of Turntable Lab Radio. Also, s/o to Lab’s own Zephyr Ann for the fun interview in the beginning!

p.s. the £5 note thing really works, Charlie showed us.

Soul Clap – Soul Clap is available now here, and stay tuned for more from Turntable Lab Radio.
