Bonus sonic treasures on SoundCloud

25 February 2024

More music! My SoundCloud library has expanded beyond the Summer Fondue Sessions archive — I’ve uploaded a collection of my other mixes recorded in 2006-2011, organized into two playlists:

  1. House Haven: Soulmate’s House Journeys, with 20+ live sets and mixtapes, it’s a kaleidoscope of soulful house music in all its forms, from the soothing deep instrumentals to the energetic bangers.
  2. Beyond Beats: Soulmate’s Lounge Escapes, with a few of my non-house mixes, including a couple of live sets from private events — these resonate more with the mellow vibes of chillout, lounge, nu jazz, downtempo etc, and inspired by iconic compilations like Buddha Bar, Cafe Del Mar, and Hotel Costes.

I hope these soundscapes find a special place in your playlists, and hearts. 💗

P.S. These are not published into the podcast, and are only available on SoundCloud.

There’s more, as I’m currently in the process of uploading my other cherished mixes, live sets, and mixtapes to SoundCloud, including some lounge/chillout works. To ensure you don’t miss out, follow DJ Soulmate there.

For podcast aficionados, the good news continues – the entire podcast archive is accessible again! You can tune in via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or find your preferred platform through these links (unfortunately, Spotify wouldn’t accept DJ mixes).

I’ve created a Telegram channel for instantaneous updates, news flashes, and perhaps to share some musings on music. It’s a space for more direct and personal interaction. Of course, for those who’ve been with me on Facebook page, it remains an excellent spot for updates.
