As of 2013, Soul Motive (and by extension 2 Floors Down) is officially shut. We had a good run at the start and I hope we introduced some amazing artists to you all, in the highest and prettiest quality we could get. A constant and increasing lack of sales has just made the venture not financially viable. And personally, it's hard work and disheartening when you sign amazing artists (just look at our back catalog), have great music and no-ones interested, you struggle to get coverage in the right places and dj's just aren't picking up the tunes. It became obvious Soul Motive had had it's time and place and it was time for Adam and I to move on and do new stuff. Perhaps we should have ended it earlier, but then we wouldn't have had the opportunity to put out the great music we had last year. I REGRET NOTHING!
All our remaining stock is still for sale directly and Adam will probably cut mad discounts to clear the remaining stock out of his house! Check http://www.soulmotive.co.uk for more details and to stream our entire catalog.
I would like to thank all of the artists who have released with us:
Joker, TRG, Ben Blackmore, Coleco, Sharmaji, El-B, Rossi B & Luca, Hyetal, Headhunter, Geiom, Eleven Tigers, Julio Bashmore, Kahn, Superisk, Dark Sky, Macc, Peverelist, Typesun and Sines.
A massive thank you to all the djs, writers and promoters that supported us, you lot genuinely made this stuff fun.
And finally but most of all, thanks to everyone who purchased something from us or came to a night. I have had some of the best times in my life playing at and attending nights representing Soul Motive and it's all down to people actually paying for something, I hope, they could see a little more effort went into than the standard.
