The Soul of the Net


The Soul of the Net started out in 1997 as one of the first soul music sites on the Internet. For the past few years I have not had time to update the site's content or graphics. Too busy doing other things,  but still keeping the faith of course, DJing from time to time and even writing some music (scroll down for a youtube link below for my first song released on the Acid Jazz label). A lot of the songs featured on the site are by now available on Youtube or elsewehre, but many of them are not. I hope the discographies and reviews I had written are still of value to soul fans, so I've decided to leave the site online, as an archive.

Yoni, July 2012

Note: The site includes sound samples low sampling rate (16 to 32kbps). The samples are intended to promote the interest in the music and purchasing of the original tracks on vinyl, CD or online.

The samples were encoded using an old Real Audio format that is not supported any more by Real Networks. Your best bet for playing the sounds would be using VLC Media Player, a free, open source and portanle player. Download the .ra files (click the download links or the blue arrow icon), then choose VLC to open them.
