Lover's Walk
The Numero Guide to Street Soul
While the rest of the UK raved on with ever increasing speed, the inner city clubs of Manchester and Birmingham began to slow down the tempo and find stride in a new style: Street Soul. The early ’90s saw the sound take a clearer shape through the convergence of reggae basslines, the shuffled drum machine sequences of New Jack Swing, and a concretely British approach to lyrics centered around love and longing, handed down from the previous generation’s lovers rock sentiments. Walk with us, and explore the many intersections of the multi-faceted sound of Street Soul.
