DEPTFORD NORTHERN SOUL CLUB ANNOUNCE VINYL REISSUE LABEL ‘DEPTFORD NORTHERN SOUL CLUB RECORDS’ DEBUT RELEASE ON 29TH NOVEMBER

“There are no gimmicks here: just a love of all things Northern Soul.” NME

 “A very fresh approach to a genre that’s been a vital part of club nights for decades.” So Young

After launching in 2016 and spending the past few years bringing the best of Northern Soul to venues up and down the country, DJ duo Deptford Northern Soul Club have announced the launch of their own record label, Deptford Northern Soul Club Records in association with PIAS, with their debut release on 29th November.

Deptford Northern Soul Club are childhood friends, Will Foot and Lewis Henderson, whose early love of soul developed after discovering Lewis’ Dad’s record collection. After finally bringing their musical heritage to the forefront with their debut DJ set at Deptford’s Bunker Club almost 3 years ago, they have since taken their credible and unique club night around the UK, performing at the likes of Glastonbury festival, Green Man and the Q Awards, alongside a residency at Manchester’s YES and their beloved Bunker Club.

Whether behind a turntable, dancing out front or in discussion, their sheer love and passion for soul is infectious, as is the spark of friendship and mutual musical appreciation between the two of them. 26-years-old but with old heads on their sharply dressed young shoulders, they have emerged as the new face of Northern Soul, bringing the movement back into the conversation of modern dance music.

The first single on their vinyl only modern reissue label, Lester Tipton’s This Won’t Change, epitomises what Deptford Northern Soul Club are all about; showcasing quality classic soul records in the way in which they were meant to be heard to both new and old soul fans. A stomping and pulsating groove-laden number, which was first released in 1966 on Detroit’s La Beat Records, it has remained a rare vinyl find – until now. A B-side of Edward Hamilton and The Arabians Baby Don’t You Weep brings a dose of euphoric upbeat romance to accompany the track. Will and Lewis say;

“After scouring record shops, markets and the internet for the best music for our sets we became increasingly frustrated at the cost and poor quality of the records that we wanted to play. Whilst being happy to use digital alternatives in their place, good quality WAVs for some of the more obscure tracks became near impossible to find. So, from day one we began to make a list of all the tracks we played out that were unobtainable on vinyl and those we could only have dreamt of playing that it seemed were lost to time.”

 “This list became the bedrock for Deptford Northern Soul Club Records, and with the help of Northern fans up and down the UK it grew to the point where we began searching for the rights and the highest quality audio to reissue. KTF!”
