2013 saw one of the Soul Mafia originals join Summer Soulstice. Take a bow please Mr. Jeff Young!..

Youngy’s long-standing status as a discerning  soul DJ has always held him in good stead. On the airwaves Jeff initially took up position with BBC Radio London but then moved onto Radio 1 in 1987 to host a new Friday night ‘dance’ show. Called Big Beat, it allowed him to play music right across the black music spectrum – from house to hip-hop – it became an essential for clubbers prepping their weekend socials. Despite the wider musical range of the show, Jeff’s soulful roots always remained evident.

Jeff Young ThumbAfter 3 years @ the helm & with Jeff paving the way for a nation to be introduced to a certain Pete Tong, he handed over the show & moved onto London’s Capital Radio where he stayed for a short time.

Jeff has always considered that his greatest achievement is “making a living in the music business for over 30 years” & more recently he has returned to the decks, doing the soul circuit once again by guesting @ several club nights & weekenders, as well as returning to the radio courtesy of Jazz FM on Sundays between 10am & 2pm (GMT).

Youngy’s Soulstice debut was his afternoon session on the Main Stage @ SS7 & one that made all of us @ Soulstice HQ extremely proud.
