Soul Connoisseurs: Pure Soul For Connoisseurs From 60s to Future Soul With A Focus on The Hottest New, Unrelease and Forthcoming Music.
JM has had a passion for Soul music since the late seventies and in over 35 years has amassed a huge record, CD and Digital collection including all forms of Soulful music from the 60s to the present day including Soul, Rare Soul, Disco, Boogie, House, Jazz, Funk, R&B, Hip Hop etc. His first radio experience was on the UK’s first student radio station CRH in Herefordshire and by 1988 he was part of the Solar Radio team broadcasting on 93FM then as a Pirate station, his show was called the JM Connection. During the same period JM also did guest shows on Kiss FM where he first started using the term ‘Connoisseurs Soul’ in his monthly column in Kiss owned Free! Magazine.
Although still collecting all forms of Soul music his focus became the mid-tempo sound often inappropriately described as 2 Step, Steppers or the London Sound. Initially, much of the focus was on the rare undiscovered beats. However, wanting to break away from those pigeon holes he developed the concept of ‘Connoisseurs Soul’ to cover a broader range of music. He was one of the founders of Touch Magazine where he continued to write the Connoisseurs Page championing the contemporary releases as well as undiscovered Rare Soul.
Today JM has created the infamous MusicConnex Live Showcases which champions new Independent Soul Artists. He is as much at home Dj-ing to the Rare Soul crowd as to the Contemporary Independent Soul crowd not to mention the broader club market but radio has always been his primary passion.
Tune in to hear the hottest future Soul sounds, special tributes, Old School rare soul specials and a sprinkling of classics too…..the ultimate Connoisseurs Soul.
