Steve Cole and CJ Willcox are Soul Affair.

Influenced by pirate radio and the buoyant underground soul scenes of the 1980s, Steve and CJ began their own DJ journeys - Steve hosting a soul night at art school at time when musical choice was otherwise limited to rave or grunge, CJ began spinning with the infamous Dr Bob Jones at his influential club The Surgery.

Shortly after meeting in a record shop, the pair launched the first incarnation of Soul Affair in 1995 at Hoxton's Blue Note club - possibly the hippest spot in the capital city at the time. Sunday Soul Affair ran weekly on Sunday afternoons until the venue's sad closure in 1998 and specialised in mid-tempo, rare groove, two-step and modern soul.

Following the closure of the Blue Note, Steve and CJ held residencies at nights such as True Spirit, Jazz Cafe, Point 101 and Ronnie Scotts. Along the way, the duo forged a new sound for their parties that celebrated everything soulful and deeply funky. More recently, Soul Affair relaunched at The Burlington Arms in Mayfair and has been running very successfully for the last five years. Steve and CJ continue to DJ at various soul weekenders, festivals and Ibiza.

Edna is a DJ with a vinyl-heavy selection of music sourced from her parents' collection as well as her own record shop finds in London and beyond -picking up records on her travels with Rough Trade-signed band, Goat Girl. Raised in Deptford and Whitechapel, she's inspired by the variety of sounds she heard across the vast city. Living in a world that's often so technology-centric, Edna prefers vinyl’s analog form because it supports living in a more organic reality. Never ruling out a particular genre, whilst merging music from past to present, her groove-oriented sets are an eclectic but finely-tuned mix of soul, R&B, dub, reggae, funk and jazz, never failing to bring the heat of the sunshine to the dancefloor. Her enthusiasm for life is reflected by the music she plays and her love of dancing. You can get a glimpse of the magic when you come to witness Edna on the decks!
