Southampton’s first vinyl record showcasing up-coming local talent
Southampton Sampler VOL.1 is a collaboration project brought to you by SoCo Music Project and Hightown Studios, bringing together musicians and artists to celebrate the diversity of Southampton’s music scene. We encouraged local talent to take part in this opportunity by sending us their best original tracks. In turn, their work was shortlisted from over 100 entries and then judged by our independent panel comprising of renowned members of the music community including Rob da Bank, Emma and Russell from Band of Skulls, Dan Mar-Molinero and Stephanie Nieuwenhuys from BBC introducing . We’re excited to be launching the ten track vinyl at the beginning of February 2017.
Matt Salvage, the director of SoCo Music Project is beyond excited for people to hear the final-end product saying “It’s a fantastic album, which really deserves to be on every local’s music shelves because of how perfectly it highlights the eclectic sound of the music coming out of our city“.
The featured bands and artists all had the chance to record their tracks at SoCo’s top recording facility, Hightown Studios, where in-house talented producer Tali Trow, who previously worked with names such as Jack Garret and Damon Albarn, mixed and mastered all the tracks.
The track list encompasses genres from alternative folk to hip-hop and rock-n-roll:
- The Dead Freights – Mama, I won’t Waste Your Time
- Kitty O’Neal – Ok
- Billy Miles – The Other Side Of The Road
- Zen Juddhism – All Of It Feat Pammie Moore
- Pedro – The Price Of Living
- Hotch ft LST – Against All Odds
- Temples Of Youth – AM
- Lucas & King – A Romance With The Ordinary

SoCo Music Project changes lives through music.
