MIX: Summer Soul Sessions Volume 2

by Jon "Law" Heredia

And now we present for your listening pleasure Summer Soul Sessions Volume 2!

A bit of a detour from the electro-poppiness and RnB of our last Summer Soul Sessions Mixtape (which you can stream and download here), Volume 2 is complete with futuristic trap, heavy bass, and synths. But one thing that never changes is SOUL and the sonic DNA dopeness that we all share. So please stream, download, enjoy, and spread the word cool people (RT, email, tell your friends, your friends’ friends, etc)!

And if you are in NYC please come by next Saturday to #CSSummerSoul and experience the live manifestation of this mixtape. All the info you need is below! See you then fam!

Last month, we brought London’s Dorsh to Brooklyn’s PaperBox where he serenaded all the beautiful women with his feel good RnB and Jazzy Hip Hop vibe; Riot !n Paris rocked out their dope rendition of Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s “Under the Bridge”; and So Super Sam absolutely murdered her mix, spinning everything from beautiful electro-soul to heavy hitting trap music.

If you liked our June Edition, you’ll love this month’s Summer Soul Session! This July we’re bringing heavy bass, synth, hi-hats, future Hip Hop, and all the sonic eccentricity that is The Couch Sessions. Think of a Cutlass and a Lamborghini hybrid.

Headlining Summer Soul July is producer phenom and mystery man XXYYXX. XXYYXX’s first release “About You”, which is as visually as it is sonically brilliant (see for yourself below), rapidly caught our collective ears by storm – from labels to tastemakers, to the blogosphere. The Couch Sessions is proud to bring XXYYXX to Brooklyn to show us New Yorkers what he really has in store.

And we’ll also be celebrating the birthdays of Couch Session’s own resident old fart Jon ‘Law’ Heredia, Rocksmith’s Mr. Get It Done and Mark S, DJ Danika, and Sarah Meier’s completion of her Ivy League stretch. Woooo!

DJ sets by So Super Sam (CA), Cream Dream (NY), DJ Danika (NY) and Run P (NY).

Come celebrate with Couch Sessions as we continue our monthly series of afternoon showcases spotlighting cutting-edge musical performances of chill-out RnB, Electro Soul/Pop, Indie Rock, Hip Hop, and art exhibitions.

Summer Soul will be held at The Paper Box NYC – Brooklyn’s new independent outdoor/indoor live music and art complex in Williamsburg BK. 3 blocks off the L Train Grand St. station.

Summer Soul is a free event with RSVP.
