Club Scenes: Need2Soul


This week we are taking a look at four club scenes - and today it's Need2Soul, the London-based club night and record label.

Despite the name, it isn't just soulful house, but features a wide range of quality dance music with a soulful bent, such as broken beat and US garage.

Promoter Alex Ruello was inspired by the legendary New York Sunday nighter, Body and Soul, which says it has an open-minded music policy with "the accent on deep, soulful grooves".

Produced by Sara Barman

Where to go: There are monthly parties at Cargo in east London - but also try MN2S or Defected for worldwide label nights, the Southport weekender, or even Body and Soul in NYC.

Key names: Q-Tip, Moodyman, Gilles Peterson, Jerome Sydenham, Francois K, Danny Krivit, Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell, Glenn Underground, Peven Everett.
