Line-up /SOFT ROCKS (ESP INSTITUT) ALL NIGHT LONG
Soft Rocks hobbled onto the scene in 2003. Their first record was notable for predating current re-edit mania by some years, and being the only one of their own releases so far not to have a pressing fault or printing error. Spurred on by this success, Soft Rocks immediately went dormant for a year.
Since then, things have got marginally more serious. But only marginally. They set up two sister labels; Disco Powerplay and Chocolate Love for edits, whilst Soft Rocks Recordings focuses mainly on original(ish) material. Remixes have trickled in for the likes of Lo Motion Disco, MGMT, Disco Sessions & Chris Coco, some of which you can even buy in the shops.
Recently the lovely people at Mule Musiq & Lo Recordings have released Soft Rocks tracks, and a home is currently being sought for the pending 2009 LP, which is either going to be called The Curse of Soft Rocks or The Joy of Soft Rocks.
Soft Rocks have dj'ed at clubs, festivals and parties across Europe. Finally a few more people seem to be picking up the hint that they don't just play downtempo weird nonsense and tailfeathers have been seen a shakin' to their heady mix of disco, house, boogie, leftfield jams, reggae and other oddities.
