I'm not the most eager fan of Soulful House. I understand that people love it and I respect that. House Music now has so many sub genres that the first label is meaningless. The label Soulful House seems to have been acquired by Northern Soul fans which annoys the fuck out of me, but hey that's just me. I did this mix with my tongue in my cheek. Having read a long list of Soulful House tracks I did a "copy text and paste into Google" found free downloads and stitched them together in no real order (so it's not really a mix). I didn't really sit and and listen to the tracks other than quickly skim through them, I just butted them up against each other and used Wavelab's auto fade without recourse to BPM or such like. I trusted the fact that these tracks were recommended as indicator of quality. The outcome isn't great and having heard all the tracks on the mix together would now do it differently (certainly with regard to order and selection). Still 55 minutes to search, download, convert and put together isn't too bad.
