1. ‘Make My Dream A Reality’ GQ
First track played at Summer Soulstice (23.6.07), Gilo pulled this out of the bag to play on Froggy’s legendary sound system we’d hired in.
2. ‘Magic’ Circle City Band
A regular favourite and a big track with the connoisseurs, ‘Magic’ will always remind us of the late, great Froggy who played at our first event.
3. ‘London Town’ Light Of The World
A jazz funk soul anthem, members of LOTW and Beggar & Co, along with some of UK’s finest, helped put the event on the map when they performed together back in 2009.
4. ‘My Jamaican Girl’ Love Unlimited Orchestra
A big, BIG favourite both in the early days and now, this is pure sunshine music!
5. ‘Where Love Lives’ Classic Mix – Alison Limerick
One of the best dance tracks ever made, love will always live at Summer Soulstice.
6. ‘Days Like This’ DJ Spinna & Ticklah Club Mix – Shaun Escoffrey
Classic R&B and club fave from Shaun, who has also performed at the event in 2017. This remix is an essential at the event, period.
7. ‘Amazing’ Reel People
An uplifting soul track that sums up the beauty of the event; happy people, of all ages and colours, sharing the love and having lots of fun.
8. ‘I Wish’ Stevie Wonder
One of the soundtracks to both Andy Weekes’ and indeed his family’s lives, no good soul event would be complete without a Stevie classic.
9. ‘My Favourite Person’ O’Jays
One of the greatest finalé tunes we’ve ever played at Summer Soulstice, nearly 4000 people singing and dancing as one to this legendary trio… DJ’s James Anthony & Ash Selector take a bow.
10. ‘Bring The Family Back’ Billy Paul
A class cut from this class artist, we adopted this from our first event as our theme tune, because it’s always been about family.
