Big thanks to Matt Fox for the 165th "Straight From The Play Box" mix.

Matt Fox hails from beautiful Cologne, Germany and pops up in ones mind when thinking about his podcasts on or here on mixcloud: Matt Fox (Soul City) that have really given Matt a wider fan base. His trademark eclectic DJing sets explore all the avenues of soul music. His soulful sound has meant that Matt has enjoyed travelling to many soul gigs across Europe to play.
His regular all-nighter SOUL CITY @ the club “Bahnhof Ehrenfeld” is now in its third incredible year championing 50s/60s R’n’B, 60s/70s rare & northern soul coated in a nice little drizzle of funk.

MY FAVES were:
- STU GARDNER – Top Notch. Big tune.
- GOSPEL SUPREMES – Wicked. Does Greg Belson know about this cracker?
- LIM TAYLOR – Killer. The world needs tunes like this brother Lim!
- LIL MAJOR WILLIAMS/FABULOUS PLAMATES – Two brilliant tunes. Also love ‘Don’t Turn Your Back On Loving’ by the Playmates.

GREAT STUFF - Cheers – JAS :)

Greg Belson

Hey Jas....thanks for the mention. Yeah, I know about the Gospel Supremes and I've been offered a few copies in the's not a tempo style I usually go for so passed on all of them. The flip is a quite nice ballad, which personally I much prefer......all the best, mate! GB

Jas Bhabra

Hey Greg – Listening again I can see what you mean about the tempo. Still a great record and the flip sounds like a cracker. Matt has done a brilliant mix here. Just checked out and left a comment on one of yours – see link below.

What struck me was the amount of listens both you and Matt had – incredible and over 1,300 plus. Different genres and records but the Mixclouders and people love these tunes – that must be a great feeling to share something fantastic like a brilliant record – Please keep em’ coming guys – Cheers Jas

Matt Fox (Soul City)

Hi Jas...thanks again for the feedback!!! Much appreciated. Btw. there's another guest mix online...really looking forward to your detailed comment on this one ;)
