Those of you who have been visiting OCICBW... for some time will know that my main musical love is real soul music. I don't post it much as my readers tend to be either rockists or they pretend that they like classical music. But I love soul music and, being English, I'm a real snob about it. This means I hate hip hop and what they call R&B nowadays. I find most dance music mechanical and sterile. Even house music, which did, at least, come out of the black soul and jazz traditions, usually bores me stiff. But there is a sub-genre of house music that I do like. It's called soul house (or soulful house) which uses the techniques and technology of house but then adds a heavy soulful element. This can be the inclusion of soulfully sung vocals and/or an underlying 70s or 80s soul vibe. I particularly like to listen to this music on my iPod when I am out walking the dogs. It puts a spring in my step.
