Elements of Soul
Joining us from Cardiff for our July special at La Cheetah (formerly The Twisted Wheel) is the supremely talented DJ and producer Sean McCabe of King Street Sounds. Having previously been impressed by Sean at the Soul Heaven after party for Tony Humphries down in Liverpool almost 2 years ago, we made a dedicated effort to catch him play the opening set of the Powerhouse at the Southport Weekender back in May and were left in no doubt that he was someone that would do some serious damage at EoS so we're delighted to have him up in Glasgow next month.
As stated above, the night will be held at La Cheetah nightclub as we take a break from the Brunswick where we'll be returning for our 2nd birthday party in October with a special guest making his Scottish debut on the night.
Sean McCabe DJ Bio
Having crafted beats since the age of 13, Welshman Sean McCabe saw 2009 catapult his name to the forefront of the soulful house scene. Still at the youthful age of 24, the last year has seen Sean drop tracks on the prestigious King Street Records, the UK house stable Defected and the legendary Soul Heaven.
With one of the hottest soul-etched tracks to drop in recent times, Sean’s ‘A Little More Love’ featuring Adeola Ranson was laced with acclaim from the house music establishment ‘Soul Heaven’, rounding off a year that has seen a string of impressive releases.
A remix discography that includes artists such as Dennis Ferrer, Quentin Harris, Stephanie Cooke, Todd Terry and Barbara Tucker to name a few; Sean’s talents have attracted the attention of many music luminaries including the likes of Ricky Morrison, Patrick Wilson and Tony Humphries.
‘Free to be Free’, released on Tony Records, saw the unification of two musical minds. Chicago stalwart Big Ed snapped up McCabe’s production power and made him an honorary member of the illustrious Blak Beatniks crew. Melodious Records soon spawned from the pair in 2005; an outlet for their music and a unique opportunity for McCabe. After all, not many teenagers can list a record label on their CV.
It was in 2002 that Sean’s ability was first noticed; having teamed up with Justin Stride and Phil Evans, Sean was swiftly inducted into the Southern Divide production team which went on to found the Mountain Records label, aided by Alex Winter, Dave Jones and ‘The Touch’ legend Deli G.
Barely old enough to consider entering a nightclub, releases on Mountain, Device Records, Soulfuric Deep and Fluential put Sean, and Southern Divide, firmly in the music industry spotlight and fuelled the passion for music that we now see coming further to fruition.
Charting his ‘mentor’ Deli G and Danny Rampling’s Love Groove Dance Party as inspirations, you can see the rich knowledge that Sean has acquired over the years, developing a musical palette far beyond his years. Artists such as Karizma, Louie Vega and Tony Humphries have provided McCabe with the desire to replicate his hero’s not only in the studio, but also in the DJ booth.
Not unfamiliar with his headphones and a bag of records, Sean has set up soulful house institution Chicaboom in Cardiff. Attracting the likes of the Fanatix, Groove Assassin and Karizma, the party serves South Wales with a slice of soul they have been craving.
Most recently, Sean made his Southport Weekender debut where he treated the crowd to one of the sets of the weekend in the Powerhouse and cemented his position as the up-and-coming rising star on the Soulful House scene.
