Suite Soul Special ft Andrea



So after the mixed up treats supplied by the Bambu Agency over the past few months, it was time to get head honcho, Andrea over to explain what its all about and play us some records. Due to a heavy session before recording the show, we both decided it would be best to not speak on the mic that much (sorry, my head was hurting!) and just play some tunes instead. So here it is, the Suite Soul Sessions return on a rare groove tip. It was just what was needed on a Sunday afternoon!



So since we didn't really talk on air, here is some details about Andrea and what she does



"My involvement in the music industry started about 6 years ago as I commenced DJing under the 'Trout' moniker, playing (not mixing) a fairly wide range of styles centred around deep house, disco, funk and soul. A typical Trout session was once described as 'a diversity of sounds from 80s soul to Brook Benton by way of good pop and funk from the future'. I spin mainly for fun, playing only what I want to hear and have been really pleased by people's reactions at gigs all around the UK including



Mr Scruff's New Year's Eve Party, Music box, Manchester

The Big Chill 2002/3/4&6, Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire

The Medicine Bar, Custard Factory, Birmingham

Phonic Hoop, The Enigma, Brighton

Fidgit, Plan B, Brixton

Fun Lovin' Criminals After Show Party, Circle Club, Manchester

Nish Nash Nosh (Electriks), Mint Lounge, Manchester

Garden Festival, Zardar, Croatia 2006



In addition to getting myself the odd booking here and there I have also set up an agency to do the same for others.



BamBu Agency & Promotions was launched in February 2003 and (other than Trout) looks after artistes such as Qool DJ Marv (NYC), Monk One (Wax Poetics), Wai Wan (Earth Project) and Dom of the Blood & Fire Sound System.
