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.

Swedish production team Orange Muse, aka Tobias Linden and Mats Landberg, serve up the blissed-out 'Keep The Funk Alive' initially released in 2003. The Original Retweaked Mix features funky spoken vocals paired with a wicked Rhodes lick and crisp drums. Next up, Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy, aka Jazz-N-Groove, put their stamp on the track with additional handclaps and congas. UK duo Soul Avengerz deliver the groovy Keeping The Funk Dub. Orange Muse lay down a harder hitting beat in Pt. 2 followed by the more subdued Original CB's Spoken Mix, alongside a plethora of Instrumental versions along with the Accapella, all adding to an essential release for DJs and music lovers.
