“NEOSOUL1stSATURDAYs” (‘NS1S’), formerly “NEOSOUL3rdFRIDAYs (‘NS3Fs’) – London’s longest running Neo-Soul night featuring Neo-Soul & down-tempo Nu Soul all night. There was a need to create this night at this point in time in London due to the feedback we got from attendees who found no where else was playing large amounts of this music on the weekends in London. This event is very much a labour of love & as with all niche & specialist music nights – it requires your support through attendance to keep happening.
NS1S is part of Keep The Faith’s Groove Lineage Eclectic Soul night. DJ Paul Aaaron on decks with occasional guests & release parties for previous artists such as Erykah Badu, Dwele, The Foreign Exchange, Eric Roberson as part of this night.
