Ash has been collecting music since the early 80’s and was a founder member of the
Double Trouble sound crew. When the crew moved on to make music, he continued
to play out with various DJ’s including DJ GRIZZ and DJ RIDYM who now form
In the early noughties, he was a regular contributor on underground IRC (Internet
Relay Chat) forums, sharing music knowledge and gaining info on the Soul/RnB
scene. His ID was SoulNRnB, and this moniker stuck.
The idea to create a site which shared both rare and new music was born there, and
together with Grizz and Ridym, #TheSoulMixtape blog was created in 2009. With at
least 2 mixes a week on the site, ranging from RnB, Jazz Funk, Hip Hop Rare Groove,
Lovers and Dub as well as Soulful House, the blog at SoulNRnB.blogspot.com fulfills
its aim to educate and entertain visitors on all things soulful.
After a stint at Hot FM, DJ SoulNRnB now plays exclusively on Nuwaveradio
together with a set of DJ’s he admires and follows, bringing #TheSoulMixtape ethos
to the airwaves.
Creating a mix with a common thread or vibe, not restricting the listener to one genre
or decade of Black Music. The only rule being that it must be soulful.
