Bio

Tam’s DJing journey started like all long journeys with one small step, that being a slot at the local youth club in Moffat in 1974. A move just up the road to Dumfries in 1978 found Tam working in the local independent record shop, which also had the mobile disco business tied up in the town. Tam quickly progressed from the mobile discos into the clubs that the shop also serviced with DJ’s, now Tam could start playing less commercial music and slip in the odd house and soul track into his sets. In the late eighties Tam steered himself to becoming more involved with the rave/dance culture, which was kicking off big time in Scotland. Tam and his friends would organise and DJ at secret parties in very remote areas in the countryside, in true underground party fashion.

13628_10152301230240969_2478773394580031749_nAs Tam grew older, so it was that his musical taste blossomed and matured into the more soulful side of House music. In 2003 Tam was away from home periodically due to work commitments and the DJing took a reluctant back seat in Tam’s life. After that long and compulsory hiatus, five years ago Tam was freed up from the shackles of his job & back in the game. He was attending EVERY Dumfries Soul night and the DJing flame was ignited once again, sparks turn into flames to coin a classic Soul record and Tam has not looked back since. A Soul boy at heart, Tam is now one of the most active folk on the Scottish Soul scene, both as a promoter/DJ but also as a “punter”. There is not a Soul or Soulful House event in the North and Scotland that Tam appears to not of attended and he is a SSW die hard, so we thought he deserved to drop some soulful vibes at SSW 5, Tam has also started doing some remix work on classic tunes, which you can check out on his soundcloud page.

Matthew:6:33 “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things shall be added unto you”. Marsha’s favorite scripture. “If you have dreams, hold on to them, fight for them, and work hard for them. Invest in yourself and always put GOD first”…It’s been a long time coming.

15921_10205753954276417_3467338837716031356_n“The Lovely Songbird” as she is known by music producers and industry personnel, have been gaining the attention of radio stations worldwide.They’ve been playing her first single, “Whatever It Takes” produced by John Khan & Earl Tutu in rotation.. Additional mixes were mixed by Luis Loowee R. Rivera and Joseph JoeFlame Davis who originally recorded her first professional recording.

Moreover, the next single “Why Don’t You Be Loved” will be released in the coming weeks and is a sure enough inspiring and uplifting hit also recorded by Joseph JoeFlame Davis.

Marsha Bond CDMarsha Bond, also known as, “The Lovely Songbird” was born in Newark, New Jersey. She started singing at the age of five in her elementary school chorus and in church. As a teenager, she sang for “The Malcolm X Shabazz High School Chorus and continued for three years. Marsha performed in many talent shows where she received trophies, awards, and accolades for her excellent vocal performances.

After a talent show, Jerry Gray was mesmerized by my voice and called me “The Lovely Songbird”. After High School, Marsha joined a theater group called “The Positive Direction Ensemble” under the direction of the late Kevin Marshall & Donna Seay. I was a member of the ensemble that performed with Kool and the Gang at a “Don’t Drive Drunk Soberfest” singing “Celebration” at the West Orange Arena.

In 1998, Marsha was recommended by Mayor Sharpe James of Newark, New Jersey to perform for the celebration for the Introduction of “The Kwanzaa Stamp” along with “The Purple Heart Stamp” to honor the Tuskegee Airmen.

Marsha is a member of St.Paul Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey which she sings and directs the choir once under the direction of the Minister of Music the renowned CeCe Rogers. She also sang with the “Voices” a group out of St.Paul Baptist Church.

In 2000, she joined the choir out of the NJPAC under the direction of Rev.Stephanie Minatee called “Jubilation”. As a member of the choir, I performed with Ray Charles, Darryl Coley, Albertina Walker,Dorothy Norwood, Shirley Casear, and Queen Latifah to name a few.

She has the kind of voice that makes you feel what she is singing about. She can tantalize and uplift audiences with her powerful and dynamic contralto voice. Her lifelong dream is to tour and perform internationally and showcase her vocal skills to all demographic groups. Marsha Bond is signed to Atwork Records which is based in Orange, New Jersey. Christopher Flowers a renown songwriter, is the person who introduced Marsha to James Germany CEO, who signed her to his label Atwork Records.

Let the music speak to unexpected ears, gratefully a melody will take away your fears, when your day has turned to night and darkness fills your heart. Let the music speak to you like voices in the rain. – Joe Sample

11127842_615663308535633_207620941_o

Paris’s production style is a strong twist on Soul, RNB, Reggae and Jazz with the foundations of classic music theory.

The heart of a musician with the technical brain that is more than needed for a producer brings inspiration to her colleagues and listeners alike.

Her first experience was with producer Vinnie VII when they were producing a track for her gospel choir for GDM records, Vinnie’s skill and approach in creating and producing music inspired and kicked off an interest in the technical production of music.

paris19 years on Paris is called to produce for all genres, in each production Paris does not ignore the want to push her musical passion in every delivery and through this has led to her working with such a vast range of talents.

The voice of Little Jimmy Scott , Prague Symphony Orchestra , Oscar Castro Nerves, C Robert Walker and Remixing for Paul Brown , Kim Waters , Najee, Brian Simpson, winning the artists pick for the Robert Glasper remix competition, Akon, Acoustic Alchemy and many more.

Expect to see so much more from this fresh musical force.

Bio
#thierry#coqmix# (14 sur 17)
The latter half of the last century witnessed the birth of two legends: Kraftwerk, electronic music pioneer and Thierry Coqueret aka Terry C. (CoqMix), inventor and only player of Air Mix.

The second one’s first love of bellbottoms and Disco glitter was followed by a few Rock distractions, then washed away into a tidal wave of Funk.

This period witnessed his first mix, which for the record, was written by abusting two recycled SL 1200 Mk2, using the legendary Soul Makossa beat.

Original HipHop became part of his musical world.

After taking a few years off, he discovered junglistic Drum’n’Bass rythms, renewing his beloved Electro sounds.

He flew in the clouds of House, Garage and 2Step, landing on the enchanting and captivating beaches of Soulful.
His presence on BWU then on SOULSIDE Radio is the occasion to indulge yourself from his taste for smooth voices and sensual beats.
