“The forward thinking sound of nufunk”
I-DJ February 2010 Not many artists can boast knocking Snoop Doggy Dogg off the top of the charts, but that's just one of the noteworthy accomplishments of one Steve Jeffery, aka Pimpsoul. He's also been called "the forward thinking sound of Nufunk" by iDJ magazine and has travelled the world as an ambassador for everything funky and bass-orientated.
Dogg's humbling took place last year when Pimpsoul's blazing collaboration with the mighty Mooqee, Keep Pounding, hit No 1 on the Beatport hip-hop chart, a hugely important indicator of sales success, which led them to win the Beatport music award for hiphop track of the year 2012. Other achievements include racking up more than 50,000 YouTube hits for his re-edit of Duck Sauce's ubiquitous Barbra Streisand, put together alongside DJP. Pimpsoul tracks have found their way into the record boxes of acts as diverse as DJ Yoda and Krafty Kuts. The likes of A-Skillz, Beat Vandals, Mooqee, Fort Knox Five and Kiss FM's Ali B are also big fans - Pimpsoul has even been called in to co-host Ali's show.
For a producer with such a booming sound (one of only three resident producers on leading UK funk label Bombstrikes) Steve is also a firing DJ who has taken his turntable skills to venues across the globe to entertain audiences in Canada, where he has headlined the infamous Shambhala Music Festival. He has also played al over Europe during the last couple of years. Fully armed with a crate full of his own re-edits and mash ups, Pimpsoul grabs the party by its horns and stamps his name on its ass cheeks like a cowpoke with a bad temper. This flat cap sporting English gent is a genuine club DJ with the power to drop the bass and watch the bodies fly around the room. No wonder even poor Snoop had to accept second spot.
