The Industry : Soul Clap

It’s been a while since we interviewed anybody, so it’s our pleasure to talk with Soul Clap, from Boston. Be sure to check out their first mix CD, Social Experiment 002 and Wolf + Lamb vs. Soul Clap - DJ Kicks CD. They are bringing the 90’s back in case you didn’t read the interview. Follow their story as they blast through the his and lows- the Great White Hope is here.

Please tell the shogunate a little about how Soul Clap got started and how you got to where you are today?

If somebody were shopping for Soul Clap in the local supermarket, where would we find it?

Feminine products / family planning section

What type of fruit or vegetable would you compare to the listeners of the music?

Granadillas. Because you can hold them like a popsicle, crack them open and they’re full of gooey shit, but they taste amazing. Big up Morph crew!

I once requested Bridgette by NWA at a sorority shindig, what’s been the craziest request for you as DJs?

The Adventures of Soul Clap podcast series is awesome and really gives much needed exposure to globally lost musics, what is the science behind this branch of your tree?

We’re really trying to capture music and djs we discover along our travels. The only rule is that mixes have tell a story or have a theme.

If the duo was walking a straight line would there be a way to magnetically move people thousands of miles away?

Yeh of course. We use the schwartz.

I’ve been making some ringtones on a prepaid Samsung flip phone that sound better than some songs on pop radio garbagio, what advice would yall give to creative types trying to separate themselves from the masses, while also trying to make the mass something else and think in a new way?

We learned a lot from mr miyagi. He taught us:"Karate not here (points to head). Karate here (points heart)."

I feel like Soul Clap helps fill a large void, is this space occupied by aliens?

The real question is how did that vag get so large. Hot dog in a hallway? Oh wait you said void. Go ask ya momma. Most of these answers, just like us, end up in ya moms.

To earn a monthly minimum wage of $1,160, artists must sell 143 self-pressed CDs or have 1,546,667 plays per month on, what on god’s green earth is the balance point between the high number of fully capable indie artists, the few signed acts, revenue and technology in "the industry"?

Pretty sure its 43.68. Although last year its was 41.3.

What year and place would you go back to feel a certain era, or are yall futurists?

Obviously we’re pretty nostalgic about the 90’s. But there are definitely things about the disco 70’s and the crackrock 80’s that we’re pissed we missed. And don’t get us started about the high renaissance. Definitely wish we had a delorian.

Somebody once told me that a woman’s nectar comes from her voice, what’s up with the lack of female MCs nowadays?

Your right. There’s no one sexier than fran drescher. About the mcs, niki minaj is actually pretty dope, but the real problem is that hip-hop has been taken over by trance music.

Your web portal has real good design, I’m especially feeling the "Title" mini browser in the center of the front page, what challenges have you had in terms of getting the site and e-presence to where you can sit back and say ‘that’s exactly how we want it’

One thing has been trying to avoid grinding our teeth and of course the gurn face is always a challenge. Seriously though, big thanks to g-notorious and mr butterworth for designing our site.
