Monthly Mix: Soup
AT THE START OF EVERY MONTH, WE'LL BE FEATURING A MIX OF SONGS FROM DJS, WHIPPED UP ESPECIALLY FOR POPSCURE
Lawyer by day and DJ whenever, Richard Luong has been with us in the earliest days of the blog, and was one of our first interviews. A veteran of the DJ scene, he spins old school motown alongside classic hip hop with plenty of obscure funk in between and offered a solely soulful mix this month. For this one he kept it pretty sultry, utilizing a lot of hip hop samples.
“This mix consists of songs that have been heavy in my rotation lately, that I thought went together well in that they showed the range of feelings that some one could feel about some one else who they love: longing, frustration, warmth, commitment, passion, appreciation, etc,” Soup said in his own words, “I also wanted to do something a little different from past mixes and include a lot of older music and derive everything from vinyl, but at the same time there are some fun hip hop samples in there, too (from Biggie to Outkast to Kanye to Mos Def to Big Daddy Kane). Hope you enjoy!”
