Article Of The Month – The Atlantic Soul Collective – Chatting With Early R&B & Soul DJ Caroline Dann

Last year, I discovered a Mixcloud account called The Atlantic Soul Collective. A great collection of uploads with a diversity of 50s & 60s R&B, rare & Northern Soul as well as funky edged Soul. I decided to approach DJ Caroline Dann, one of the DJs from The Atlantic Soul Collective for a chat regarding her DJing and passion for Soul music, which shines through in these Mixcloud uploads & I think are superb. Here is that interview.
