A new mix

I know that we’ve been quiet here at the Soup Factory, but it doesn’t mean our chefs aren’t busy cooking up stuff for the summer and your listening pleasures.

First off, our very own Krisco has done a mix for you! He’s mixed up some nice liquid rollers, perfect for those chill summer vibes. You can head over to his Mixcloud to listen or his Soundcloud to be able to listen and download it. I know for myself, I’ll definitely be downloading it and it’ll very likely be in regular rotation in my playlists over here.

Secondly, we’re just waiting on a few technical things for our 3rd track and our long awaited 4th EP will be finally out. I know it’s been a while since we’ve released anything, but as we all know, life gets in the way and things happen. You can go listen to the preview from Krisco and Smooths over on our Soundcloud. You won’t be disappointed.

Hang tight, it’ll be soon!

cheers 🙂

SFR002 is out!

Sorry for the late in the day post everyone, but life happens, cars are pains in the ass and so on. But I’m not here to talk about that…

I’m here to say, the day is finally upon us!

SoupFactory Record’s 2nd EP is out! This one features tracks from Whupass, uewpeap & Smooths.

All 3 of our chefs have very different styles for your listening pleasure, so head on over to our Bandcamp page and take a listen. Don’t forget to hit “Buy Now”, for $3 you can have 3 more awesome tracks, cheap!

Uewpeap – Artist Profile

We’ve added on another chef into our kitchens here, some of you old school Winnipeg party people would have known him as a part of Phreshlyspun (alongside Desimal, Thor, and Phrawzty), but we here now know him as Uewpeap.

Richard Foreman (a.k.a. uewpeap) began writing electronic music in the early 90’s on an atari 1040st running “Digicomposer”, a 4-track DAW that created Mod Files. After quitting the metal band “H.C.E.”, he decided electronic music was his passion because he ctrae-headshotould write whatever he wanted without argument. Just before the turn of the millenium, he started performing under the name “Traemelo” with a group of incredible musicians that performed under the moniker of “phreshlyspun”. Soon after this, Richard faded into the seedy Winnipeg underground for many years, but continued to produce while lacking proper inspiration. In 2014, Fueled with a new resolve, he has returned to the world of Drum and Bass under the pseudonym “deadman” (uewpeap) to bring forth Old-School flavour with New-School Production Techniques.

Head over to his Soundcloud to hear some of his awesome tracks and mixes.

Artists part 2.

I know it seems like we’ve been silent over here in the Soup Factory kitchens, but really we haven’t. We’re still coming up with some great things in the shadows, hopefully things will be coming out soon.

We’re up to 100 likes over on our Facebook page 😀 Keep those likes coming, we’re going to have a few contests coming up in the new year, so keep your eyes and ears open for those.

I know the last post I made, I only posted bios from 2 of our artists. Well guys, here are the other 3!

DJ Gumby

gumby-headshotFrom the dark rooms at the legendary 123 Princess warehouse parties in Winnipeg, to all the way to Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton, Banff, all over Saskatchewan, Manitoba, some of Ontario, and even down in Chicago, Gumby has been bring all flavours of Drum and Bass to the ears of party goers since late 1997. From there, he hosted weekly web radio streams based out of Los Angeles and London, England. With his smooth mixing style, and ever present bare nipples, he has made the jump to producer with his first release appearing on the Soup Factory Records launch release.

The Smooths

Chris Smooths, didn’t play the flute as kid. The band he never played in had no influence on his choice to make dance music. He sold his sweet IROC Camaro back in 2000 for turntables… what a mistake that was. Anyway, after countless years and money spent djing he figured he throw more money at dance music and bought some production gear. So here we are, wasting more time and money… Two things he really doesn’t have much of to begin with.

He’d much rather let his tracks speak for themselves.

AND finally….

Our artists

The past week on Facebook has been great, we’re up to 98 likes in just over the week we’ve been up and running! Keep those likes coming, share our page  with friends, friends of friends and everyone you know. Our Instagram has also been doing fairly well and yes, I know there hasn’t been much movement other than us promoting. But before we know it, our first release date will be here and then things will be up in full swing.

Speaking of that release date, while I’m still waiting on bios from certain artists,  I can at least introduce you to the ones that we do have! (I know life and stuff gets busy, especially with the holidays coming up soon)

Jeff Boychuk, aka DJ Whupass, hit the drum and bass scene in 2005.
After appearing on numerous radio programs over the years, he made appearances playing shows in Canada and the US alongside some of the worlds most well known and respected DJ’s such as Stunna, Mason, Martyn, Dieselboy, AK1200, Dara, Vaski, Mark Instinct and more.

Around 2011, he decided to try his hand at production, eventually seeing a release with his tune, The Human Centipede (as Max Wage) on Elektrik Beatz Recordings.

Jeff’s favourite soup? “Probably consume soup from whatever Chinese restaurant I happen to be ordering from.” He doesn’t have a favourite recipe, because he doesn’t cook. (and yes, he will admit that!)

Hopefully I can get the bios from ShortCircuit, Gumby & Smooths soon. We have lots more cooking in the kitchens, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what it is. 😉
