Martin Freeman & Eddie Piller

Soul On The Corner

Tuesday 23rd April 2019

'Soul On The Corner' is another collaboration between two of the Mod scenes big players. It follows on from 2018's acclaimed 'Jazz On The Corner' compilation and sees Eddie Piller, the renowned DJ and founder of Acid Jazz team up with celebrated British actor Martin Freeman again.

The record will pull together a bona fide collection of tracks made up of the duo's personal favourites, spanning across the history of Soul - from its heyday in the '60s and '70s all the way up to now. Covering a variety of artists ranging from legends like Curtis Mayfield and The Supremes to contemporary acts such as the recent Acid Jazz signee Laville.

The compilation's opening track is 'How Could You Break My Heart' by Bobby Womack. One of Piller's picks, Ed explains that;
“I never tire of hearing this record and have used regularly to close my DJ set, it’s a real hands-in-the-air moment.”

Meanwhile, a highlight from Martin's picks comes in the form of 'Fan The Fire' taken from Earth, Wind & Fire's self-titled debut album. Martin explains his choice by simply stating that;
“this is a funky-as-hell cry for peace and love. Good lord, they were SO good.”

'Soul On The Corner' will be released on 3rd May 2019, have a listen via Spotify below or you can pre-order it at smarturl.it/soulonthecorner.
