Mixer

Karl Marthon

We're delighted to present a mix from respected record dealer, collector and dj; Stockholm's Karl Marthon. Knowing the fine records that Karl has in his possession we asked him about contributing a mix when this site was first launched and thankfully lo and behold he has delivered us a great set of soul music all these years later; well worth waiting for!

Lars Bulnheim

Another one of our favourite DJ's and a lovely bloke to boot! Lars will need no introduction to folk that attend the best soul events around the globe as Lars is regularly booked to spin at the stellar soul nights on the calendar. Here's a superb mix that Lars did exclusively for Independent Movement in 2014, so good that we didn't want to share it!! It's only a year later but quality like this should be shared I guess......this is a hot one!

Underplayed soul & disco gems here in a abundance from one of our favourite dj's out of Chicago DJ Darryn Jones. A talented dj that is always on the hunt for great records and usually finds them! Our type of fella & a welcome addition to Independent Movement.

Chris Huggins

A guest we've been wanting a mix from since the site began and it was definitely worth the wait. One of the few folk from the early days of the modern scene ie Rock City, Bank Hall Miners etc that not only has great taste in soul music but still has the records in his collection that equals most top jocks we know. Although family and football have taken over the DJ'ing, Chris's history and immense knowledge is unquestionable and we hope to see him grace the decks at a soul night again soon.

Ian Clark - Morecombe/Blackpool (now Southport) Weekender Radio Show 1990 

One of the most important dj's on the soul scene, hugely influential and an inspiration to many throughout the 7ts/8ts/9ts (he even gave me my first London gig - Michaels Wine Bar Barbican).

This recording is unfortunately only 40mins as i didn't turn the D90 over...

Ian discovered many great soul records, northern and modern over the years; a favourite dj of ours with great taste not just rare records who kept the rare soul scene alive in the south at residencies such as the 100 Club, Stomp/Dingwalls, The Metropolitan + Yate, Blackpool and Cleethorpes Weekenders etc
A superb dj, a talented artist (check out those Kent LP covers) and above all else a true gentleman.

Alex Subinas

We're very pleased to host a mix from one of Spain's most respected, knowledgeable and hugely likable soul collectors.

When talking about soul records and the scene in Spain, Alex's name comes to the fore. Along with Aitor Lombide, Alex is also behind one of Spain's longest running and most successful Soul Weekenders in Bilbao, Soul 4 Real.

Jazz and Deep Soul in abundance, Just wonderful.
