Originally set up as an online radio station in early 2006 by Tony Scully and Lisa Kappler, Soul Satellite was home to some of the most promising DJ talent and a meeting place for soulful house heads the world over.
Featuring DJs and artists such as Sean McCabe (Soul Heaven / King Street), Ridney (Defected / CR2), Carlos Vargas and the Deep & Soul Project (Look At You / Gotta Have Faith) and Vjuan Allure (Angels of Love, Napoli), the station stood for quality house music without compromise and it was inevitable that the station would spill out of cyberspace, eventually culminating in regular parties held in Farringdon, London.
More events were to follow with parties across the UK in towns and cities as far and wide as Brighton, Swansea, Cardiff, Bristol, Leamington Spa and Sunderland. Portugal’s Figueira Da Foz also took up the Soul Satellite mantle, whilst more regular events took up residence in Northampton and Nottingham under that watchful stewardship of good friends Dave Cross, Luke Richardson and Anthony Payne.
Attracting anything up to 700 people in Northampton alone, Soul Satellite parties set themselves apart with the simple ethos of offering the freshest, hottest house music mixed by the finest DJ talent.
In late 2008 the radio station eventually disappeared, but the parties carried on before Soul Satellite returned to the interweb in the summer of 2009 with a fortnightly radio show on IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) nominated SSRadio hosted by Anthony Payne.
