Last Night’s Soulection Show in Sydney Was Pretty F$%*ing Epic!

Though it was only a few years ago that the distribution of music was controlled by only the biggest and most well-known labels, the inspiring hustle of the individuals behind independent record label, Soulection, has quickly become a notable platform and global community of artists, creatives and tastemakers alike. Keeping quality music as their consistent staple ingredient, the LA-based collective now boasts a roster of international artists and producers, a streetwear label, a radio show on Apple‘s Beats 1 station and countless sold out tours and appearances around the globe.
This past weekend, they continued on that journey and brought ‘The Sound of Tomorrow’ to Sydney. Check out our review now.

It’s taken me a while to post this review about my time with the Soulection crew in Sydney and Melbourne, and to be honest, it’s been ready for a couple of days now but I haven’t been 100% happy with it.
I’ve read through it over and over and I don’t know what else I can change so here’s the best version of what I’ve written. I hope you enjoy the words that are shared and that you’ll be able to picture what happened if you weren’t there. Peace.
