What It Is!

Soul, Funk, Reggae and House music aficionados all know the deal. For over 20 years Kwame Younge and DJ Dave Campbell have been bringing their special brand of partying to dance floors across Toronto. With an emphasis on the groove first, Kwame and Dave have fostered an undeniably soulful sanctuary at every venue they play. From Aretha to Ten City, from Machel Montano to Luther Vandross, from Nina Simone to Third World. Their vibrant music and the unifying message of Soul it carries feeds the lips , hips and fingertips of all involved.
