‘FALL IN LOVE’ with TORTURED SOUL Live at The Lyric

Posted by radio On November - 19 - 2018

Bassline Live & Kaya FM Present TORTURED SOUL live at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on the 15th of December 2018.

Considered one of the finest creators of soulful house music, Tortured Soul return to South Africa, due to popular demand, after a successful sold out show in 2017.

 

 

Director of Bassline Live, Brad Holmes is excited to be bringing this music group back to Johannesburg: “The response from last year’s show was mind blowing and so it was a non brainer for us to bring this incredibly talented music group back to our beautiful city. I cannot think of a better way to end the year.”

 

 

Tortured Soul is one of the world’s most groove-centred acts.  Influenced by the classic songcraft of Prince, Heatwave and Kool & The Gang, the members of Tortured Soul are three distinctive guys with three different backgrounds, united under a groove-centered rhythm.

 

 

With a sound reminiscent of neo-soul groups like Jamiroquai or Brand New Heavies, it is also deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Joey Negro, Kenny Dope, Soul Clap and Disclosure.

 

Led by frontman John-Christian Urich, Tortured Soul was quickly picked up by New York-based deep house label Central Park Recordings and the group was officially launched to the world.  Since then it has become a staple amongst DJ’s across the globe and has received major airplay, including a number 1 on Kaya FM.

 

‘Introducing Tortured Soul’, the debut album, was dubbed by legendary tastemaker Gilles Petersen as “the future of house music”.  The follow-up album, 2009’s ‘Did You Miss Me’, released on the band’s own label, TSTC Records, ushered in a new wave of critical acclaim from music publications like Blues and Soul, SoulBounce, and SoulTracks who described the album as “one immaculate danceable tune after another.”

 

 

With their most recent album, ‘Hot For Your Love Tonight’, burning up dance floors with songs like ‘I’ll Be There For You’ and the Deep House-flavoured ‘Don’t Lead Me On’, Tortured Soul shows no signs of stopping.

 

The band will be performing for one night only at the Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City on the 15th December 2018. The Show starts at 8pm and tickets are on sale at Computicket from R250.
