The LA-based audio-visual collective has grown exponentially to get to this point, with residencies in the city going as far back as 2013. The group has grown into their own, spreading the gospel of afrobeats, house, and dance across the states and at several festivals including Afropunk and Coachella. The residencies start this August and run through the end of the year, save for September when founder Joe Kay takes “The Joe Kay Experience” to Chicago, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and more.

More on Soulection:
Since 2011, Soulection has been a cornerstone of creativity for innovative musicians, crate-digging DJs, and open-minded fans from across the world. What began as an independent radio show has since blossomed into a global community of artists and audiences, united in a borderless, genre-bending, musical movement. Over the past eight years, their grassroots expansion is a model of what happens when one stays true to their roots in the constantly evolving digital age of music. From putting out independent releases with producers like Ta-ku, Sango, Dpat, and Atu on Bandcamp to being the first collective invited to play Coachella, Soulection’s growth has been organic and fruitful. Today, Soulection exists as a Beats 1 radio show, an independent music label, festival (Soulection Experience), world-touring concert and clothing line.
TSOT (“The Sound of Tomorrow”)
Since 2012, Soulection’s worldwide touring arm, “The Sound of Tomorrow” has become a major milestone for the Soulection family. Selling out venues across six continents, from Africa to Europe, the impact the crew’s efforts have had on fans across the planet is crystal clear. TSOT has made presence in Amsterdam, London, Paris, Tokyo, Manila, Sydney, Cape Town, Proto, Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore and more. Through the power of the internet, Soulection’s game-changing approach to music curation has resonated with those who universally understand and embrace the “sound of tomorrow.” Back in North America, Soulection has also increased their presence on the festival circuit in recent years with showcases at Electric Forest, Afropunk, Lightning in a Bottle, and Coachella demand for the collective grows. In early 2019, Soulection had their second annual festival dubbed the “Soulection Experience” in Los Angeles at the Shrine Expo Hall. The sold-out show featured affiliated artists like Ella Mai, Goldlink, Mr. Carmack and more in what felt like a homecoming concert for local fans.
