Their debut release as Solution Soul with Southampton based singer, Nina Provencal is forthcoming on Makin’ Moves.

Matt Langrish-Smith, London’s boy-about-town whose quick bio includes 3 years in Advertising at DMC and 5 years as Head of Events at Papa Records, taking their monthly party ‘Messages’ to the next level. In 2009 he collaborated with Dean Zepherin to set up the internationally acclaim Tribe Records UK (label and events company) with club residencies in Paris, Miami and London. Fast Forward to 2012 and Matt decided to spread his wings and launched a new events company ’Makin’ Moves’ and joined forces with local London DJ talent, Jamesey. Along with hosting his own radio show on www.housefm.net since 2004, Jamesey has been an essential cog in the wheel of London’s soulful & deep house scene, performing at parties including BBE, Soulogic, to name a few. He has also played gigs around the world in Dubai, Russia, Sardinia, Barcelona, and NYC, among others. Jamesey first met Matt whilst at one of his residency parties at www.Offthemeters.com. Some years later Matt & Jamesey both felt there was a gap in the London soulful/deep house scene for some good New York style underground house and a much needed sacred space to encourage and showcase creative DJ mixing once more. They launched at Brixton Clubhouse in July 2012 and have since also began their Bedroom Bar residency, using their events ongoing to showcase all their fantastic artists. Makin’ Moves Christmas party is on December 22nd at Reliance, Shoreditch Square with special guest Glenn Underground from Chicago.
2013 is already looking busy for the label with forthcoming projects include South African artists Sakhile Devoted featuring Nickson and Jihad Muhammad & DJ Beloved from New Jersey slated for release early in the new year. The Makin’ Moves Radio Show is every Saturday on www.housefm.net from 6-8pm (GMT) with Matt, Jamesey and Jihad on rotation.
