Soulfuric is one of the most well-renowned labels in house music worldwide. Under the production guises Jazz-N-Groove and Urban Blues Project, Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy released records on classic labels including Sub-Urban, Strictly Rhythm and AM:PM, even cueing up the first ever release on Defected Records (and a UK chart no.8) with Soulsearcher’s 'Can’t Get Enough'. In 1996, the two founded their own label Soulfuric Recordings which eventually included sub-labels Soulfuric Deep and Soulfuric Trax. Soulfuric was and is one of the most important labels in the history of this genre we love, garnering a cult following and releasing classics from Hardsoul, John ‘Julius’ Knight, Urban Blues Project, 95 North, Afromento and Wayne Gardiner.

Hailing from Washington DC, Doug Smith and Richard Payton made a lot of noise as producers and remixers throughout the 90s. Originally released in 1998, ‘The Funky Stuff EP’ proves the duo were still going strong. ‘Funky Collards’ makes great use of a harmonica over a funking groove and a big fat bassline. ‘Funk With Me’ highlights 95 North’s signature keyboard riffs, while ‘Let Me Tell Ya’ dusts off a classic funky groove, with snippets of a female preacher who wants to tell you all about it. This is funky stuff for sure!
